Mom Uses a Shower Caddy to Store Bottles, Becomes a Parenting Legend
Storing baby bottles is tricky. Unlike diapers or those adorable PJs your little one keeps out-growing, they can’t be easily tucked away and organized. Baby bottles are bulky and, let’s face it, take up a lot of space.
But leave it to one hardworking mom from Southeast Texas to come up with a brilliant (and pin-worthy) solution. To help save valuable kitchen space, Brooke McDaniel, mom of two, turned to a household item normally found in bathrooms: a shower caddy.

McDaniel hung the caddy — only $12 — on the wall for easy, accessible storage that ensured she wouldn’t have to scavenge around for bottles come feeding time (which, with two mouths, could be anytime, all the time).
She has been using the rack for a year and says it works better than anything else she could find. In fact, it was actually on one of her trips to Wal-Mart in search of a solution, that she thought of the idea. “Nothing in the baby section seemed practical to save any space,” McDaniel told BuzzFeed Parents. “Every bottle holder was bulky and just didn’t fit my needs, so I improvised.”
McDaniel took to Facebook last week to show-off her idea, and with over 100K shares, parents everywhere are loving it. “This is brilliant,” one mom wrote. “Going to do it this weekend,” another said.
Commenters also pointed out you could store spices or even cleaning products this way. Ah, the Internet, the gift that keeps on giving.
