This diaper caddy is the perfect subtle organizational tool for your nursery, featuring a space for a box of wipes, an adjacent divided section and a drawer for all your extra changing necessities. But it doesn’t scream ‘baby.’ As your child grows, replace that box of wipes with a box of tissues. Use it to store arts and crafts supplies down the road. Or keep it for yourself to organize your cosmetics. With five colors to choose from, there’s a style that’s perfect for your kids — or you.
