This diaper changing pouch is an easy 15-minute sewing project. It holds 3 diapers, a package of wipes, and even has room for diaper cream or other small items! Every mom needs one so make a few to keep on hand as baby shower gifts! This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Baby Bundle at Sam’s Club.
After having 5 babies of my own I know how important it is to have a month’s supply of diapers, wipes and other essentials like bath products, laundry soap, and items for feeding always on hand during the first couple of years. These are the things that you really don’t want to run out of. I like adding a homemade touch to any gift that I give so today I’m sharing one of my favorite baby shower sewing projects: a 15-minute diaper changing pouch! This makes such a cute and practical gift paired with a month’s supply of diapers and wipes. I keep one in my diaper bag and it is so convenient!
The pouch holds 3 diapers, a package of wipes, and even has room for small tube of diaper cream. I bring one of these in the bottom of the stroller when we go to theme parks or the zoo and keep my keys and credit card inside as well. That way, I can leave my big diaper bag in the car!
My favorite brand of wipes are Huggies Natural Care Wipes. They are fragrance free, and are so soft. Packaged with 99% water filtered 3x, they are safe for sensitive skin. They are also hypoallergenic and pH balanced. I buy the refillable packages and tub from Sam’s Club. Since the plastic tub won’t fit inside the diaper changing pouch, I use a regular package of Huggies Natural Care Wipes or fill a plastic baggie with wipes.
For diapers we choose Huggies, which is the fastest growing brand used in hospitals (Based on verified shipments to US hospitals for the 52 weeks ending 9/30/17) and offers the best protection for keeping skin clean and healthy.
Everything stays nice and secure with the Velcro closure.

We’ve been buying our baby essentials in bulk for 15 years. It’s hard to believe that we have been having babies for that long!
I’ve gone on and on about how diapers and wipes are essential to have around during the first couple of years, but what about the other necessities? Babies need to be bathed, fed, and they go through a lot of laundry that has to be cleaned! Some babies may be able to share bath and laundry soap with the whole family, but many have sensitive skin. It’s a great idea to have body wash and laundry soap that is gentle enough for baby, and when you buy in bulk you save money and don’t have to make extra trips to the store!
We’ve had a couple of babies with extra sensitive skin. Disney Baby ECOS™ Laundry Detergent is hypoallergenic, plant-powered, and is EPA’s ‘Safer Choice’ certified. Strong enough for the entire family and gentle enough for baby, too. Another safe choice is AVEENO® BABY WASH & SHAMPOO. You can buy a 2-pack from Sam’s Club and it comes with a bonus travel size lotion. Because it is hypoallergenic, phthalate and paraben-free it is safe to use even on newborns.
Similac Pro-Sensitive™ formula is a great choice for babies because it is designed to support brain, eye and physical development and provide immune support. It’s the first formula with Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs)* and also includes OptiGRO, a blend of DHA, lutein and vitamin E.
