If you’re on the hunt for a shower gift for your friend or family member, look no further. Maybe the mother-in-law has already snapped up the coveted Graco stroller, or there are so many diaper towers claimed on the registry that the unborn baby won’t need new diapers until they’re three months old. Diaper caddies are a must-have for expecting parents.
Caddies are lightweight, yet big enough to hold all of the baby’s essentials—diapers, wipes, burp cloths and more. It’s basically like a baby emergency kit, except that every diaper change, feeding and spit-up is a mild emergency for new parents. They’ll be grabbing and running the caddy from room to room all day, so it’s a good thing that diaper caddies are generally pretty sturdy. It’ll live in the baby’s room, obviously, but accidents happen.
As this item will be an integral part of the expecting parents’ lives, we rounded up the best baby diaper caddies. The caddies we selected are also gender neutral, in case the person you’re buying for doesn’t know if they’re having a boy or girl or if they prefer not to know the gender. The diaper caddy can also evolve throughout the baby’s life. Just because the kids stop wearing diapers doesn’t mean that it’s going into the trash. It looks unassuming, so the people you’re gifting it to could repurpose it easily. It’s the gift that could live in your friend’s house for many years.
