Welcoming a newborn into your home is the most wonderful thing in this world! You’ve been dreaming of holding that tiny little bundle of joy for the past 9 months and now you finally get to go home together!
Soon though reality will set in and you find that you are so busy caring for this precious new gift that you simply have no time on your hands and you can’t help but wonder what the heck you did with your time before the baby arrived!
Being organized contributes a lot towards saving time when there is a gorgeous little baby in your home depending entirely on you for his or her well-being. This is why having a diaper change table in the baby’s room is a must!
A diaper caddy ensures that you have all the necessities needed to change a diaper in one place and that it can be easily transported not only between rooms but also when you leave the house! Caddies these days are also designed to hold much more than only diaper changing “equipment”, making your life easier, which is why many moms are getting them on their baby shower!
We’ve reviewed some of the best caddies out there with a portable changing pad in order to save you some time! You will notice that they each differ greatly from one another because, at The Baby Swag, we understand that all homes, all parents, and all babies are different! Why then would their needs be all the same! So without further ado, here follows our list of the best diaper changing caddies.

The Eddie Bauer Diaper Changing Organizer
We love this diaper caddy because of its simple, elegant design and the fact that this caddy is easy to carry around with you within your home.
The Eddie Bauer Diaper changing organizer has two large compartments, perfect for diapers and/or wipes. You will also find two smaller compartments on both sides, perfect for those extra little items you often need.
We’ve utilized these compartments for various items including diaper rash cream, pacifiers, baby shampoo, moisturizer, and baby bath oils. One can even fill these pockets with bibs, baby hairbrush, and nail clippers.
The diaper change organizer is 11.8 x 9.8 x 9.8 inches, providing just enough space to fill up on all the necessities and on the plus side, it will not take too much space in your baby’s nursery. It doesn’t get too heavy to carry around and we especially liked the simple, grey Polka-dot design.
The material is of good quality and the caddy is easy to clean with a wet cloth. We don’t recommend you throw this one in the washing machine though seeing that it is reinforced with some kind of cardboard.
JJ Cole Heather Diaper and Wipes Caddy
The JJ Cole Heather Diaper and Wipes caught our eye because it is small enough to fit just about anywhere and yet big enough to hold all of the essentials you will need when changing your baby.
This classy caddy is 10 x 11 x 8.5 inches and manufactured from paper chipboard. The chipboard is covered with 100% polyester, giving it a clean and neat look. We like that this caddy has a drawer that can be used for various objects including wipes, creams, balms, clothes, and cotton wool. They also score brownie points for the color-coordinated changing mat that is included.
The caddy has protective rubber feet to keep it from sliding on surfaces and due to its size; it should easily fit onto your baby changing table.
If you are fanatic about matching furniture and color schemes in the nursery then we’ve got some more good news for you! Take a peek at the JJ Cole Heather storage boxes that will compliment this caddy (and your nursery) perfectly!
Prince Lionheart Dresser Top Diaper Depot
If you are looking for something with a different look and feel to it, check out the Prince Lionheart Dresser Top Diaper Depot. It is the clear color of the caddy that immediately caught our eye. The caddy will fit in with any décor and color scheme in your nursery and the caddy is unisex should you wish to use it for a second or third child!
The caddy measures 16.5 x 9 x 6 inches and fits both small and large diapers (the caddy can hold about 20 large diapers). It is also designed in such a way that it can be used for cloth diapers as well. Another quality making this caddy unique is that it is perfectly safe to attach a wipe warmer to it. Unfortunately, it is specifically designed for Prince Lionheart wipe warmer and doesn’t really fit any other wipe warmer securely.
The Prince Lionheart Dresser Top Diaper Depot has removable side bins that can be used for lotions, baby powder and other necessities. The caddy can stand on a dresser/changing table or it can be attached to the side of the table. Those who have bought one and received it in good condition, raves about this caddy, however, there’s been a few unhappy customers, complaining that when they received the caddy, it was already chipped, cracked or broken.
Ending on a positive note, once your baby reaches toddler-hood, the caddy can be reused for arts and crafts items or even to store socks and underwear in!
DaliWay Playard Diaper Caddy & Baby Nursery Organizer
We picked the DaliWay Playyard Diaper caddy and Baby Nursery Organizer for its unusual size. As parents, we get that most homes these days don’t have a lot of storage space but believe it or not, this caddy can work well in both large and small spaces.
Due to the caddy’s size, it can hold just about everything you need for your baby so there’s no need for extra storage/cupboards or baskets and it easily clicks onto your camping cot, changing table or crib.
The caddy measures in at 17.7 x 10.5 x 2 inches and is manufactured from 90% polyester, 10% cotton. It has two separate diaper storage boxes that fits both small and large diapers and that are reinforced to hold its shape.
You will also find two pockets at the side of the caddy, large enough to fit a medium-sized lotion or even a set of clean clothes or a blanket. We really loved the multiple pockets at the top though which can be used to store anything from barrier cream and wipes to toys and nail clippers.
Trend Lab Dove Gray Chevron Storage Caddy
The Trend Lab Dove Gray Chevron Storage caddy has more than enough pockets to meet any parents’ needs. This stylish caddy has got 8 pockets on the outside of the caddy (all around) to fit anything from baby oil and brushes to powder and lotions.
The inside of the caddy is lightly padded and measures 13 x 9 x 7 inches but what we really loved about this caddy, is that it has a removable T separator in the middle. The T separator fits into place using buttons to keep it secure and will help you stay organized. Should you need more space on the inside of your caddy, simply remove the separator! Be warned though that the caddy does get a little flimsy when you remove the separator and although it can hold wipes, it is not safe to use a wipe warmer due to the material.
Even though the Trend Lab Dove Gray Chevron Storage caddy does not have leather handles, the material that they are made of makes it easy to carry from one place to another and we think it would work lovely to maneuver between the nursery and the bathroom if you are not going to bath the baby in the nursery.

Ubbi Portable Diaper Changing Station + Storage Caddy Organizer
We love the Ubbi Portable Diaper Changing Station and Storage Caddy Organizer because of its sleek look, neat features, small size and portability.
This caddy is manufactured from plastic and rubber, making it easy to clean and disinfect whenever you need to. The non-slip feet at the bottom of the caddy ensures that it stays put and won’t slide around on your changing table while the rubberized handle makes it enjoyable to carry around.
The caddy consists of two main compartments holding approximately 8 diapers. We know that it doesn’t sound like much but it is more or less the amount of diapers you will need per day. One can also store cloth diapers in the caddy.
The caddy is compact, measuring 10.5 x 10.5 x 9 inches, small enough to fit on changing tables with ease and to carry around the house.
The caddy also has a compartment created especially for a wipes dispenser (dispenser sold separately) with a window, allowing you to easily monitor your wipe supply. One can, however, use this compartment without the dispenser and simply put a pack of wipes in there.
There is an additional compartment inside the caddy with a slid outdoor which can be used for small items such as pacifiers, small tubes of barrier cream, Snappi’s or pins. The Ubbi Portable Diaper Changing Station and Storage Caddy Organizer also comes with a changing mat which folds up to fit inside the caddy and is easy to clean. You can purchase this caddy in gray, navy, black and light pink.
Choosing our favorite caddy amongst these would be an impossible task considering that they all contain a unique set of qualities. We would probably end up disagreeing with one another about which diaper changing caddy is best because just like these amazing caddies we sought out, we are all different from one another, causing us all to have different needs and wants.
Each caddy on this list possesses features that some would deem a necessity and others, a luxury. In the end, it all comes down to your very own personal needs: How often you travel, how much space you have available, whether you live in a single or double story house and your mobility within your home.
Choose carefully though because once your little bundle of joy arrives, changing diapers will become second nature to you and we want you to have the best possible experience in doing so! We truly hope that you find the perfect diaper caddy on our list, one that works for you! Happy diaper changing!
