The good news is there are plenty of effortlessly easy ways to keep baby clothes organized in the nursery. Below are easy ways to organize baby clothes that transform the nursery.
HOW TO KEEP BABY CLOTHES ORGANIZED IN THE NURSERY
1.ACCESS BABY CLOTHES STORAGE NEEDS
It's impossible to determine what baby clothes storage solutions ought to be brought in without accessing the needs. Take stock of all the baby clothes your little one already has or clothes you have bought as you prepare for the baby's arrival. Either way, having a clear understanding of the volume of baby clothes will help guide your decisions as you work to get the baby clothes organized.
2. ADD BABY CLOTHES STORAGE SOLUTIONS
Similarly, accessing the existing clothes storage in the nursery, such as a built-in closet or a dresser, gives you an understanding of any gaps. If that is the case- add solutions to fill the gap. For example, if the nursery lacks a built-in nursery closet-consider adding a freestanding wardrobe unit for storage. Or, create an open wardrobe with wall shelves and rods.
3.CUSTOMIZE CLOTHES STORAGE TO FIT YOUR NEEDS
If the nursery has a built-in closet-you are one of the lucky few. However, don't settle for a builder-grade nursery closet. Instead, customize with shelves and rods to maximize the space and store more of the baby's clothes.
4.PILE UP ALL BABY CLOTHES
Take out all baby clothes from drawers, closets, armoire, totes, and anywhere you might have stashed them and make a big pile. If they are new clothes, get them washed with a baby-friendly detergent.
5.SORt BABY'S CLOTHES
Once you've gathered all baby clothes, try sorting them into clothes you want to keep, donate or store. If all of them are new clothes for a baby on the way, skip this step. Further sort clothes you will keep into categories-onesies, sleepers, going out outfits-you get the idea.
Keeping baby clothes organized in the nursery starts with an organized dresser. A good start would be to assign drawers to categories of clothes. It's a good idea to store everyday outfits such as onesies, pajamas, pants, sleepers, etc., in the dresser while going-out outfits along with blankets, bedding, etc., are stored in the nursery closet.
7.USE DRAWER ORGANIZERS
Without a doubt, drawer organizers are a must-have to keep baby clothes organized in the nursery dresser. They help contain the baby clothes, give every category of baby clothes a home, maximizes space, and makes clothing viewable. Here are our favorite drawer organizers.
8. LABEL ALWAYS
Keeping baby clothes organized in the long run means having a system that's easy to maintain. Labeling the drawer organizers or drawers goes a long way in doing just that. We've created lots of beautiful FREE labels-grab them here.
Never underestimate the power of file folding baby clothes before placing them in the drawer organizers. Instead of stacking baby clothes on top of each other, carefully file-fold to make them stand vertically inside drawer organizers.
10.ADD SLIM HANGERS
Since your baby's clothes are so small, there's an opportunity to hang lots of clothes in the nursery closet. To maximize the space, invest in slim hangers like these ones.
11.USE CLOSET DIVIDERS AND SHELF DIVIDERS
Add closet dividers to help you separate baby clothes by size in the nursery closet. Also, add shelf dividers to the shelves at the top of the nursery closet above the clothes rails. Bulky items such as nursery bedding and blankets can be stored on these shelves. Use shelf dividers to ensure that these items don't topple on top of each other.
One thing is certain-babies outgrow their clothes so quickly. Keeping baby clothes organized in the nursery also means having storage to stow away clothes the baby has outgrown. Keep a couple of bins or totes to store those clothes until you can decide later on if you want to donate or stow them for a sibling.
