You've set up a breastfeeding station in the nursery, one of the four must-have stations in the baby's room. But keeping the breastfeeding station clutter-free and organized is easier said than done. Ahead, we are sharing our best tips for organizing the breastfeeding station in your baby's nursery.
Chances are, you've gathered all the breastfeeding station must-haves and perhaps even decorated the nursing nook. But if your breastfeeding station falls short on organization- it's not going to function as it should.
Here, discover the pro tips for organizing the breastfeeding station and keeping it organized in the long run.
BREASTFEEDING STATION ORGANIZATION
1.USE VERTICAL SPACE
You've brought in a comfortable nursery chair, an ottoman, and a side table to create a nursing nook. But, don't forget to use the vertical space in the nursing nook to add storage, especially if the floor space is limited. Here is a great spot to add bookshelves to store and organize baby's books because you'll find yourself sitting there reading to the baby soon. Or, add wall shelves for extra storage.
2.MAKE the STORAGE SPACE DO DOUBLE DUTY
When adding vertical storage solutions- choose items that can double as nursery décor. This way, you get the extra storage you need while adding a decorative element to the breastfeeding station. For example, wall shelves make a stylish storage solution for the breastfeeding station.
In addition to the nursing nook furnishings, you'll want to keep your breastfeeding essentials such as burp cloths, nursing pillow, Haakaa, etc. Make sure to remove things out of the breastfeeding station unless they need to be there.
4.KEEP EVERYTHING VISIBLE
Instead of piling the breastfeeding essentials and other necessities together, use organizers to control clutter and keep items visible yet not look messy. The nursing nook is a great spot to add a rolling cart or tiered basket stand for storage and organization.
5.USE BASKETS OR BINS
One of the most important things to keep in mind when setting up the breastfeeding station is to make sure the breastfeeding essentials are within easy reach. Place a basket or two by the nursery chair to store swaddle blankets, burp cloths, and wipes.
6.ADD FURNITURE THAT DOUBLES AS STORAGE
We get it- most often, the square footage you have available to create the nursing nook is limited. The best way to work around this problem is to add nursing nook furniture pieces that can double as storage. When choosing a side table for the breastfeeding station, pick a side table that's outfitted with drawers and shelf space to store essentials such as nipple creams and pads, Haakaa, hair ties, chapstick, lotion, etc.
7.up the cozy factor
The nursing nook begs to be cozy, considering the fact you'll be spending so much of your time there with the baby. Make the nursing nook into a warm and welcoming space by adding a blanket, a comfortable footstool, and choosing soft lighting.
