Hey moms, between back to school, the change of seasons, and the holidays looming just around the corner, fall is a busy time of year. So we’ve put together some of our tried-and-true parenting hacks with our friends at Baby Dove to make things just a little bit easier — and a bit more fun (like turning bath time into a cherished ritual). Ready to dive in? Here are five genius parenting hacks that will make you feel like parent of the year.
1. Use a hanging shoe organizer to store diapers and wipes

Design guru Oh Joy came up with this why-didn’t-I-think-of-it organizing hack for storing baby wipes and diapers just for Boxed. Simply hang a clear shoe organizer over the door, then fill the slots with diapers, wipes, baby lotion, and anything else you need easy access to.
2. Baby wipes FTW
There are wipes for everything: face wipes, pacifier wipes, hand wipes…forget ’em. Dove Baby Wipes are multi-purpose so you can safely use them on babies, kids, toys, even yourself to clean up after a diaper disaster.
3. Make the most of bath time
Is there a better sound than your baby splashing around in the bath, playing with bubbles? Bath time might feel like a chore at the end of a long day, but follow these handy bath time tips: place a towel on the bottom of the bath to stop baby from slipping, keep toys in a small plastic basket so they don’t float away, and add Baby Dove Tip To Toe Wash for a gentle, soothing bath. It’s hypoallergenic and tear-free, so you can enjoy this magical moment without stress.
4. Pack extra clothes in zipper bags
You know how it goes: you’re out, baby gets messy, so you change baby and throw soiled clothes into your diaper bag. You forget what’s clean and what’s messy — urgh. Pack extra baby clothes in a zippered bag to keep clean and dirty separate. And don’t forget your baby wipes!
5. Make massage time your new fave ritual
Research shows that massaging your baby has a host of benefits, from promoting development to easing anxiety. Dove Baby Lotion is hypoallergenic and pH-neutral, so it makes an ideal lotion for massage time. Finding a few, peaceful moments for you and your mini me can be hard, so take a couple of minutes post-bath time to massage baby and turn it into a cherished ritual.
