Babies require so much stuff and it can be overwhelming trying to figure out what to do with all that stuff!
Since this is my second baby, I have learned a few things about keeping it all easily managed.
1) Don’t Fold Baby Clothes
Baby clothes are so tiny and they go through a couple of changes a day, so it is easiest to not fold them at all.
I lay all of the pants in one pile in the dresser and onesies in another pile. The sleep and play outfits simply get hung in the closet.
This saves so much time!
2) Use the Dresser for More Than Clothes
I keep crib sheets, baby towels, diapers and wipes in the dresser drawers too.
Since baby clothes are so small, they really don’t take up much room and a standard dresser is usually more than they need anyway.
I like to keep night time sleepers and sleep blankets in one drawer. In another drawer I keep tops and bottoms.
The socks are in a small foldable container from Dollar Tree.
3) Use Baskets and Bins for the small random pieces.
Next to the rocker, I keep burp clothes in a small basket. That way they are within arms reach while I feed the baby.
I just toss them in the basket instead of folding them.
All of the baby blankets are in a basket to keep them contained in one spot.
4) Put the Unused Items Up.
As babies reach different milestones, the things they need change.
Instead of keeping everything out, only keep out the items your little one is currently using.
This way you avoid a ton of clutter. You can’t organize clutter!
