Well, last summer We introduced baby number two into the home but we had limited space on our small changing table. So, I made this little guy to hold the diapers and wipes. I gotta admit it’s hard to feel like a manly craftsman talking about diapers and wipes.

I ended up taking off the lid because it was just easier with the amount of diapers that fly through this thing. I also made sure to route a space on the front face of it so we could use our finger to pull down diapers when that got stuck. Building it again I would hinge the face of it more like a cabinet door to make loading it easier.

If you build one be sure to build it to hold up to largest diaper size, not just the size you are on. :)

Overall, I think this has been the most used thing I have ever made. Haha, ohhh the crazy money we have spent on diapers!

What I would have given to have one of those diaper dispensers about 10 or 11 years ago! Fantastic idea, and it looks great too :) Even though we spend a small fortune on diapers, once those days are gone…you miss them so much! We’re in the middle of those pre-teen years over here, so diapers and wipes seem like they were ages ago. Great job, and thanks for sharing :)

a) Big Congrats !!!

b) That’s really cool !

Not going to show it to my pregnant friends (yeah: plural), because … they have an endless list of things they “wonder if I could make …..,” but … it IS very cool !

This is a great idea. I can understand your comment not feeling like a craftsman, I just started on our changing table for our addition in July. I’m going to save this diaper dispenser as a favorite and look at possibly making one after the changing table. Thanks for sharing!
