Moms-to-be are usually spoiled with presents for themselves as well as their babies but new dads are often forgotten. A daddy diaper tool belt is a fun gift to give a dad-to-be, and it will make him feel included in the celebration of the new baby while also giving him and everyone else a few laughs.
Purchase a tool belt with an apron that has pockets or pouches. Or sew a short apron with pockets and pouches. Be sure to choose a manly fabric and color scheme so he will want to wear and use it. Four to five pouches or pockets is ideal.
Use puffy paint or other fabric paint to write the words "Daddy's Diaper Tool Belt" onto the front of the apron. If you know weather dad is having a girl or a boy, this can be a good opportunity to use pink or blue paint. Otherwise, a neutral color is best.
Gather all your supplies. You will need a couple of diapers, wipes, diaper rash cream, tongs, gloves, a face mask, hand sanitizer, pacifier and lotion.
Place the tongs, gloves, goggles and face mask in one section of the tool belt. These are the items that will not actually be used but are included as a joke on how changing diapers can be a dirty, smelly task. You can also add hang tags to each of these items with a short explanation of how to use them.
Place the rest of the items in the remaining pockets.
Open a word processing program and type up a set of instructions on how to change a diaper with all the items you have included. This can be written either in a very instructional or a humorous manner. Print, fold and place the instructions in one of the pockets.
