- Stick small pieces of cardboard to the bottom of each bottle compartment to reinforce them.
- Cover the entire outside and handle of the container with decorative contact paper for a cute look and easy cleaning.
- Insert a sandwich baggie into each bottle compartment and staple the top edges of the baggie around the top edges of the compartment so the bottle can still slide in. When you need to clean, you can replace the baggies or pull the bottoms up and out to wipe them down.
- Carry six assembled baby bottles or use a couple compartments for bottles and a couple for stacked nipples and lids.

- Cut the second box so it stands 4 inches tall in the front and 5 inches tall in the back.
- Cut the third box so it stands 5 inches tall in the front and 6 inches tall in the back.
