Being a first time mother can really be overwhelming. Months before your baby is born you try to think of everything. You prepare the nursery, the crib, the cute bath tub, and the clothes. You start shopping long before you know your baby’s gender. Friends and family send you baby clothes and toys weeks before the actual delivery. Advices pour in even if they’re not asked for. Everyone just wants to be a part of your first time being a mother that they do whatever they can to make you feel it’s the right thing. Sometimes, though, even with all the baby things you’re getting, you never actually think of getting baby closet organizers until after you deliver your baby.
Start sorting through everything that you have for your baby as early as you can. You would want everything organized and ready when your baby arrives. You can start by placing the baby clothes and other things in a closet. Hanging dividers can be very helpful in keeping an infant’s clothes storage neatly arranged. If you’re given hand-me-downs that are too big for a newborn, you can put these items in your hanging dividers until such time your baby can wear it. You can label it appropriately with hang tags with such labels as “0 to 3 months” then “3 to 6 months.”
You can also label your baby’s clothes according to what kind and style. You may have shopped or been given piles of play clothes, sleeping clothes, etc. You can also label them more specifically with “short sleeve shirts,” “jumpsuits,” etc. Having a perfectly labeled baby closet organizer would help make sure that whoever puts away the laundry will know where to place the items appropriately and whoever dresses the baby would know where to find the right clothes.
There are smaller items that can’t be neatly arranged in hanging closet systems so it is probably best to have some drawers in your baby’s closet. Avoid carelessly stuffing items in the drawers. Make sure you fold them neatly and put similar items together. It would be frustrating to fumble through mixed stuff in the wee hours of the morning when your baby needs changing. Make sure you put socks together, bibs together, burp clothes together and so on. You can fold them or roll them, whatever would be the most convenient for you.
You can also utilize the doors on baby closet organizers by putting some hooks for hanging coats, hoodies or hats. This can be very helpful if you’re always in a rush in the morning and you have to live on a grab-and-go lifestyle. Some items may be too bulky and may be hard to fold such as jackets, coats, and sweatshirts. Since baby items are very small, they are often hard to fold neatly. Bulky items usually take up a lot of space if you stuff them in closet shelves so it is best to put them in a wicker basket where you can still easily get them when you need them without the hassle of fitting them in the closet.
