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 ones. (You can learn more about our rating system and how we pick each item here.)

And while we’ve written about lots of baby products before — including the best baby monitors, the best baby mattresses, and the best diaper bags — here, we’ve rounded up the best diaper caddies, as praised by the most enthusiastic reviewers on Amazon.

Best-rated diaper caddy

Lil Dandelion Baby Diaper Caddy Organizer

“I wanted a modern, neutral-looking diaper caddy that’s ultraportable and sturdy, and this definitely fits the bill,” explains one new mom. One dad reports that “this caddy is in the top three for most-useful things” for a first-time father: “Knowing that everything I need for a 2 a.m. diaper change is all in one place lets me get baby back to sleep quicker, and parents know that every wink counts.” Dozens testify to the amount of storage in this caddy, like one shopper who loves “the generous size, plus eight pockets outside of the caddy (easy reach for diaper cream, lotions, pacifier, etc).” Another parent appreciates that the “inner panels are removable to customize the way you want your bag set up.”

Munchkin Diaper Duty Organizer

Lots of reviewers were impressed by how much this plastic organizer holds. “I love that it has so many compartments to organize my son’s things,” writes one mom. Another thought she “would not possibly use all the compartments, but it was soon filled up with necessary baby items.” She says, “I love being able to keep everything within arm’s reach so I don’t have to leave the baby unattended.” Many fawn over the compartment with disposable bags designed specifically for dirty diapers. One mom who “uses those a lot for poopy diapers” says, “It’s great to place the diapers inside a bag and not have the whole nursery smell like poop.” As another mom concludes, “This helped reduce the clutter and is a great idea in general for those that don’t have a nursery and may need a little help staying organized.”

And now some micro-picks for every type of diaper caddy you might be looking for.

Best portable diaper caddy

Parker Baby Diaper Caddy

Parents appreciate the portability of this felt caddy. “It has the right amount of pockets for all baby’s stuff. I use it right now as a portable changing station for my newborn,” explains one. Another notes that the fabric is “a smart choice” because “it’s not so heavy when it’s fully stocked.” One mom agrees that “the material is awesome,” calling it “sturdy while still being stylish and gender neutral.” Plenty of other reviewers are impressed with this caddy’s capacity, with one mom saying, “I’ve already got my mini lanolin, lip balm, hand lotion, tissues, baby wipes, newborn diapers, and nursing scarf, and there is tons of room left for snacks, water bottle, book, magazine, journal, and whatever else I can think of.”

Best diaper caddy with changing pad

“I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited about changing a diaper,” exclaims one mom, who says of this model, “The Ubbi changing pad that comes with it is great. It is easy to clean, doesn’t let water through, and if you are using a smooth surface, it creates friction so it stays stable.” More parents are impressed with the changing pad, with one saying, “Its sleek design and nonslip surface keep it in place while changing a diaper, even when my little one is rolling around.” Lots call this diaper caddy “practical,” like this mom who calls it “probably our most-used baby item”: “This is a must for changing diapers, especially if you don’t have a set spot and need something portable to move with you to the different rooms.” Plus, as another reviewer explains, “The changing mat folds small enough to fit in a normal-size purse, for when you don’t want to take an entire diaper bag, but is actually larger than most foldable changing mats when it is open.”

Best diaper caddy for playards

Parents purchased this to easily change diapers inside their playard (or playpen). “This product fits every extra accessory I need on my playard for diaper changing,” one reviewer explains, while another notes, “This is much sturdier than other hanging diaper organizers, and roomier to hold necessities like diaper cream, wipes, bum brush, etc.” Another appreciates that “it has a lot of space and is not a sore to look at or have on the side.” And even though this caddy is designed to hang over the side of a playard, one new dad keeps it over his changing table. “Overall the quality feels good, the hooks are stiff but flexible enough to bend and fit over our changing table,” he writes, “and the color and style went perfectly with our nursery.” Many comment that it’s on the small side, but one mom argues that “a small caddy like this make a huge difference in the nursery room. No more small things thrown here and there. All organized and looking good.”
