Collapsible baby wipe packages work better than travel wipe containers
When I was a new mom and carried a big diaper bag with every possible baby supply, I used a plastic, portable-sized and refillable baby wipe container. The problem was that I was always worried that I would run out of wipes, and it was a pain refilling the container all of the time.
At some point I starting buying wipes at Costco -- their Kirkland brand. These wipes don't come in a plastic tub; they come in a soft, collapsible package with a sealable lid on top. Once I had used a package for a while in the nursery, I would then put the half-empty package in my diaper bag. It was portable enough, and definitely had more wipes than the plastic, refillable container did. No more refilling wipes into a small container!
I was so proud of myself for coming up with my own hack, and couldn't believe I hadn't thought of it earlier. I also recommend buying wipes in bulk so that you can have a pack in the nursery, another downstairs for quick diaper changes, a pack in the car, a pack in the diaper bag, etc.
Yes! Most wipe refill packages are soft, collapsable and reclosable...and small and light enough to carry along when half-empty. If you've got some empty wipe boxes sitting around, you can always use them to make a self-enclosed diapering kit. Or you could use them as car tissue-holders, or to organize your kitchen cabinets or corral small toys.
