When you’re ready to welcome a tiny, new member to your family, it can be overwhelming to decide exactly what deserves a space in your home and where you should keep it. For our second and third babies, I’ve kept a diaper changing cart stocked with everything you need on hand for diaper changes and after bath time. I’m going to share the items we keep stocked in our diaper changing cart, I hope you find this post helpful in preparing for your baby.
What I keep in my Diaper Changing Cart:
- Baby Wipes
- Baby Healing Ointment c/o CeraVe: This ointment relives baby’s chapped or cracked skin. It also works well to treat and prevent diaper rash.
- Baby Moisturizing Lotion
- Nail Clippers
- Baby Brush
- Nipple Cream: I honestly like to stash these all over the house.
- Burp Cloths
- Baby Thermometer
- Pacifiers & Pacifier Clips: This is home base for our pacifiers. It also means there’s always one handy to keep baby’s hands busy while I change her.
- Pacifier Cleaning Wipes
- Spare Changing Pad Cover: I’ve learned keeping a spare cover right on the cart is so helpful in emergency blowout situations.
I love CeraVe® because their products work well on all skin types, for both mama and baby. Their products are also formulated with all three essential ceramides to help restore the skin’s natural protective barrier. Their Baby products, including Baby Wash & Shampoo, Baby Moisturizing Lotion and Baby Healing Ointment are all accepted by the National Eczema Association. They are also free of many skin-irritating ingredients, including fragrance and parabens.
Not only does baby’s skin deserve to be well taken care of, mama’s does too! CeraVe is a staple for mom’s skincare routine. Their Hydrating Facial Cleanser gently removes dirt, oil and residue from skin without stripping the skin’s natural moisture. The Daily Moisturizing Lotion is lightweight and oil-free. It helps to restore your skin’s protective barrier without clogging your pores. I might not have energy for much of a skincare routine before bed at night, but these two steps I can manage.
