Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve covered booster chairs, high chairs, and changing pads for babies, here we’re zeroing in on the best diaper caddies, as reviewed on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)
Best diaper caddies with handles
“I absolutely love this thing! I love the color (not too dark, not too light), I love the sturdiness, and I love the size (not too big or small). I’m able to hold 30 size-1 diapers, an entire plastic case of wipes, two tubes of petroleum jelly, travel-size hand sanitizer, baby hats and mittens, a large changing pad, a large burp cloth, a pacifier, Chapstick, and a baby brush. Fits perfectly in the Pack ‘n Play right now alongside the bassinet insert.”
“This item has been a DREAM. We have a two-story house (nursery and changing table are upstairs in the nursery), so we keep this downstairs. It allows us to quickly do diaper changes anywhere downstairs without running around with a stinky, wet baby OR having diapers, wipes, and butt paste all over the place. It is quite spacious so we also store an extra onesie in case of blowout and extra burp cloths. We’ve had this for a few months and the waffle weave lining has remained in place and very clean despite multiple times a day use, we are so glad the lining has held up well!”
“Love this thing! It’s so handy, mobile, and perfect for those times you really don’t feel like running up and downstairs with a screaming baby wearing a dirty diaper. All you need is a single hand to bring this baby with you to wherever your heart desires, or wherever your sweet little one decides to blow their diaper up! This thing has everything thing you need in one place, and best of all it holds at least a day’s worth of newborn diapers. Perfect for this new mama.”
“I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited about changing a diaper. I needed something portable so I could carry it to different rooms and have everything in one spot. This is perfect. Product comes with the container which has a drawer and a slot for a changing pad. The caddy itself also has little rubberized feet so it also will not slide across your hardwood floor or off the dresser. The little drawer is perfect to hold small things; I currently have a 3-oz tube of butt cream, and I store extra pacifiers in there. The caddy holds about 10-15 size-1 diapers.”
Best hanging diaper caddies
“Oh my gosh! I LOVE this diaper caddy. I had another one, but returned it when I saw this one. I was not disappointed. It has the perfect amount of pockets and space for everything I need. The right amount of diapers can be held here, as well as lotion, diaper cream, extra changing pad covers, and wipes. The best part is the style. It’s the perfect gray chevron, the stripes are nice and thick. It looks trendy and classy.”
“Absolutely the best quality I’ve found. The material is top of the line, and it’s not just some cardboard on each shelf — it’s sturdy and holds the weight. Best part is you have the option to hang it two ways, with straps or loops but either way it’s built for support and will hold all the things you need. In my opinion this is the only one I’d recommend to any mother.”
Best spinning diaper caddy
“This diaper caddy is really neat. I love it so far, lots of compartments for rash cream, baby comb, nail clippers — whatever you want! And it’s good quality: The plastic is thick and sturdy, and the spinning mechanism on the bottom is sort of ratcheted so it doesn’t spin out of control. Very nice!”
Best dresser-top diaper caddy
“Love, love, love this thing! Everyone that’s been in my nursery compliments it and says “Isn’t that handy!” Perfect to hold scissors, nail clippers, brush, comb, hand sanitizer, butt cream, A&D ointment, air freshener, and a few other things. I will also set my babies’ slobbered-all-over bib on top of the wipe warmer while napping and it dries it out so it’s ready to use again when she wakes up.”
