Keeping the nursery organized is not an easy task, but is certainly necessary. It pays to have everything close at hand and in order when you’re taking care of a baby. It can get out of control really quickly if you don’t stay on top of it. Use these tips to get your nursery organized while simultaneously making it look great.
1) Categorize things in the nursery. Keeping related items together will make it easier to quickly straighten up and find what you need when you need it. Divide by medication, diapering, clothing, pins, emergency items, and also by how often you use things. You don’t necessarily need medication every day, so store it somewhere separate from your everyday needs, like diaper rash cream.
2) Get what you really need often organized first. Things like diapers, wipes, burp cloths, pacifiers, hand sanitizer, and tissues are needed often.
Make sure that you can quickly and easily reach these things while also making sure that the baby can never reach them. A simple shelf or cabinet up high will suffice for these items. Use labeled bins, buckets and baskets so that you can quickly and easily find what you need and put it back. Don’t ever let your baby put diaper wipes in their mouths because the chemicals inside are dangerous.
3) Keeping toys organized makes playtime more fun for your baby. Start early teaching them how to categorize and organize. Separate the toys however you want. You can have quiet sections of toys, climbing toys, a reading corner, building toys, arts and crafts, and fine motor toys all organized into separate categories. Categories make it easy to clean up and like toys generally stay in their right areas.
4) Keeping the baby’s clothes organized can be one of the biggest nursery challenges.
They outgrow them so fast, that you’re constantly changing things out. You have your clothes to give away, your hand-me-downs, the dirty clothes, the clean clothes that aren’t put away yet, and then there are the clothes that your child hasn’t grown into yet. We haven’t even made it to out of season clothes yet! If you don’t get a handle on it, it will sure get a handle on you. The easiest way to keep baby clothes smoothly rotating is to have big containers for each thing. Avoid using a dresser or drawers because things tend to get pushed back where you can’t see them. Use shelves, infant hangers, baby hangers, children’s hangers, baskets, bins, and other containers to organize tiny items.
