Diapers fit nicely in the plastic wipes box

Lisa V.'s diapers-to-go hack:

If you have a child in diapers, use the refillable wipes packs (the smaller travel size in the soft package). Put the package of wipes into the original box (the regular full-size box). Then add a few diapers (they fit nicely!) Now you have a pack of wipes and dipes for going out.

I didn't realize they could all fit together so nicely until recently and my son is 2!

I usually come up with the great hack right as my kid's about to grow out of that particular solution. Sigh.

THANK YOU! I'm about to take my 10 month old on a 2.5 hour plane ride, and this is such a great idea for the carry-on! I love parenthacks :)

you can also just put a handful of wipes in a ziploc bag if you don't have the travel size package.

What an awesome hack, why didn't I think of that!?

Ah! My daughter is just now pting. I love to organize things, and I wish I had found this hack/site sooner!
