Squared Away

Start building your kit with inexpensive natural washable diapers. Folded into neat squares, the diapers help to fill up the caddy to make sure the kit looks full and abundant. (These could easily be substituted with disposable diapers if you know the mother’s preference.)

A Gentle Touch

A small tube of gentle rash cream and a package of baby wipes are necessary additions to any good diaper bag.

Fill It Out

Even with a row of diapers, you may still need to add a bit of padding to your kit to give it a full look. Hot pink crinkle-cut paper shreds purchased at a local craft supply did just the trick. (You could use tissue paper or even another partial row of diapers as well.)

Simple Staples

A folding travel changing pad, baby powder and hand sanitizer round out this simple changing station.

Step 5

Signed, Sealed, Delivered

You’ll just need a plain shipping tag and calligraphy-tipped marker to create your own custom gift tag. You can write “diaper kit” on your tag or create a custom message to your mom-to-be.
