Every new parent knows that you can’t prepare for bringing a baby home – not really.
Usually, it’s simply a case of “expect the unexpected” because those little bundles of joy bring as much chaos into a home as….well, joy. That chaos takes some getting used to, and the answer is often organisation.
Which is why a genius Kmart baby changing station hack that was posted on Sunday night is going viral.
Corina Maynard, a member of the Kmart Mums Australia Facebook group, posted a photo of her daughter-in-law’s use of the clever trick. Her daughter-in-law has used a Children’s Storage Unit, retailing for just $25, to store everything she needs to look after her newborn.
The grey storage boxes – originally intended for toy or book storage – have been used for wipes, wraps, lotions – and the shelves for rows and rows of easily accessible nappies.
The hack is something that any parent of a new baby knows is a god send - with items at your finger tips, and clear visibility to what needs replenishing - especially if they're managing a 3am poo-nami.
Naturally, the hack was liked 3600 thousand times, and attracted 650 comments, as of 7pm on Sunday night.
