Diaper Changing Station On The Go For Busy Moms

Today we’re sharing how to create a simple and easy diaper changing station on the go for busy moms! This post was sponsored by Sam’s Club®, however, the text and opinions are all my own.

Diaper Changing Station On The Go For Busy Moms

I love being busy. I love having places to go, people to see, and things to do. But traveling with a baby means traveling with a lot of stuff. Or does it?

By making my trunk into a diaper changing station (and gear storage for the stroller) I’m able to take less with me when we leave the car. Talk about a mommy survival kit! And stocking my diaper changing station is made easier with the awesome deals Sam’s Club® has on baby essentials. Diapers, wipes, diaper cream, baby wash, and more!

Savings on diapers is huge right now and they not only have Huggies snug & dry but they have their new little movers as well! And since my little mover just started moving, this is a great diaper to have on hand.

Sam's Club Essentials for Mom

And yes, I totally wrote Makers Mark first when I was writing my list. It’s been that kind of a week. But thanks to Sam’s Club, I won’t have to worry about going on a diaper or wipes run for a while. Yay! Not only am I saving money but I’m saving time too. I can  easily stock up on exactly what I need for the kids and my baby every time I go there.

In addition to saving time and money by shopping at Sam’s Club, I also save room in my diaper bag by keeping the kids essentials in the trunk. We have a change of clothes for each child in a wet bag just in case, we have a light jacket for each kid as well, and we have various hats. And when Norah came along I also made a diaper changing station in the back too. Here’s what we have back there:

Diaper Changing Station

What You Need: 

  • Huggies Diapers
  • Member’s Mark Wipes
  • Homemade Diaper Rash Cream (you can also find Desitin at Sam’s Club)
  • Old Changing Pad found in any diaper bag (or a reusable shopping bag)
  • Small trash can/bin

What You Do:

To keep everything together I stack everything in the small compartment to the side of my trunk. If I didn’t have this compartment I’d use a wet bag to hold everything in when I needed it.

By keeping extra diapers, wipes, and diaper rash cream in the back alongside a small trash pail from Thirty One, we have a one stop shop any time we need it. That means when we can’t find a diaper changing station in the restroom at a restaurant or we’re at the local park or museum hanging out, I can just step over to the car to change the baby.

My shoulder thanks me. When I don’t have to lug all of this stuff around. In my diaper bag currently are 2 Huggies diapers, 1 small pack of wipes, a onesie, my wallet, and some snacks. That’s a LOT less than what I carried when I had my first child. Oy. I would have brought the kitchen sink if I could have when I had him! And I started making some diaper rash cream to have on hand for the little rashes that come about. It’s super easy to make too!

Diaper Rash Cream

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 3 drops tea tree oil
  • 3 drops lavender oil

Mix together coconut oil and essential oils well. Place in a container and seal well.

Use a small amount and rub over the affected areas to soothe your child’s skin.

Please note that coconut oil turns from a liquid to a solid state and it’s completely normal! Do not use essential oils directly on the skin.
