A nappy caddy is a must-have for every Mum. It is an easy, effortless way to keep all your baby changing needs in one accessible place.

A nappy caddy, like this one from, is perfect because it has open compartments, drawers and plenty of easy storage for wipes, nappies, cottonwool, nappy cream and more.

But what do you do once your nappy changing days are over? Yes, as distant as that possibility may look, the day will come when you no longer need to change nappies.

What do you with the nappy caddy then?

One option, of course, is to bless another Mum with it and help her make change time easy as well.

Another option is to reuse it around the house. That’s right.

A nappy caddy is a great organising solution and here are 5 brilliant ways to use it to stay organised as well:

It’s lightweight and portable too so you can carry it easily from one room to the other. 

3. Medicine or First Aid Caddy 

Turn your nappy caddy into a first aid caddy keeping bandages, ointments, antiseptic lotions in the different compartments. No more hunting for an aspirin or antiseptic when you need it the most. 

4.  Catch-All Caddy
