After you have a baby, the last thing you want to worry about is organization. Luckily, you can plan ahead and prepare your nursery before your baby arrives — saving you time, effort, and much-needed brainpower as you progress through the newborn, infant, and toddler stages.
Whether you’re trying to maximize the space in a small nursery or are looking for new ways to keep everything in its place, buybuyBABY has everything you need to stay organized. From the ultimate diaper changing station to clothing storage hacks, we’ve got you covered!
There’s something so satisfying about a set of coordinated storage bins to keep all of your baby’s clothes organized. Sort everything by age group, and keep them somewhere handy like the nursery closet. Then, when your baby grows out of one size and into another, you can swap the old for the new. Place the too-small clothes in a convenient spot to either keep them for a future baby, give to a friend, or donate.
So, this isn’t so much an actual product as it is a tip — but I promise it’s a good one! Grab a labeler (or even some masking tape and a permanent marker) and label drawers and other storage areas so it’s obvious where everything goes. You might think this isn’t necessary now, but you’ll see the value on your first sleep-deprived day. It’ll also make it easy for anyone who’s watching the baby to know where things go when you’re not there.
When it’s time to change baby’s diaper, it’s all hands on deck — literally. Keep everything you need handy and in one convenient spot with a changing table caddy that has a compartment for all your go-tos; think diapers, rash cream, wipes, and lotion. Or, if you don’t have surface space to spare, you can opt for an organizer that hangs off the side of your changing station that’s just as handy!
Give toys, books, and other small items a home off the floor and keep your nursery clutter-free and easy to navigate with a set of floating shelves. For even more wall-friendly storage, you can add a cubby station with hooks to your nursery shopping list. Looking for lots of pockets made of soft material? A 4-pocket hanging wall organizer is just the thing!
Did you know that you can maximize your nursery storage space through strategic furniture selections? From cribs with built-in trundle drawers to an ottoman that doubles as a storage cube, there are plenty of ways to squeeze even more organization solutions into your nursery. Use them to keep extra diapers, blankets, or toys out of the way.
Nightstands are good for more than sitting by the bed — consider adding one to your nursery shopping list to serve as a handy nursing station. Keep in mind that you’ll be pretty much immobile while nursing, especially if it leads into nap time. Use the surface as a space to put a book, water bottle, phone, and anything else you might want to keep within reach. After all, your needs are just as important as your baby’s!
While some new moms opt to keep most of their baby’s clothes in a dresser or in some other system, others may prefer to hang them in the closet (some even take the doors off for the ultimate convenience). If that’s your plan, maximize your space with slim hangers sized for tiny clothes. You can even take it a step further with organizers that keep your items sorted by size — the ultimate no-brainer!
For clothes that are going into drawers, keep them in their designated areas with the help of expandable drawer organizers. These sturdy dividers allow you to easily sort everything from socks and onesies to pajamas and t-shirts with ultimate ease. And, they’re flexible enough to fit any drawer from 11 to 17 inches.
Who doesn’t love a good storage hack? Remember those hanging shoe organizers that helped you save space in your own closet? You can use a similar solution from Buy Buy Baby to hang in your nursery closet to hold all your spare baby blankets and sheet sets. One of the biggest perks is that you won’t have to dig through piles and risk unfolding everything in the process just to find a single blanket!
