How To Organize Baby Dresser
Parenthood is challenging and fulfilling at the same time. It has always been a practice for first-time parents to put extra effort into preparing for the child's coming. That includes buying baby's essentials -baby bottles, diapers, and clothes. Newborn babies quickly outgrow their clothes every month or even every week. With your baby’s constant wardrobe change, you need to learn how to organize baby dresser. In this way, you can easily find what you need when changing your little one.
Before you know how to organize baby dressers, you must first learn the folding technique to keep all the clothes in place. First, you have to categorize the clothes—from onesies, pants, shirts, underwear, and socks. Then you need to decide which part of the dresser you need to place them. Folding and stacking little clothes are usually the way they should be kept. However, when these clothes are stacked, you can’t see all of them, especially when you are using the drawer type dresser. So, the tendency is you will pull the ones on the top. There is nothing wrong with this technique. It just that it is challenging to maintain this organizing style. And when you look for a particular cloth, you need to keep everything out to see what you are looking for.
Onesies are one of the baby clothes that are used more often. So, it must be organized in one drawer. The best way to store onesies is by using the rolling method. Roll every piece of the onesie and place it next to each other. This method is also space-saving. With the roll technique, you will be able to see all the options whenever you need to change your baby’s clothes.
- Baby Socks
Baby socks are so tiny that you need to keep them in a small container. When you learn how to organize baby dresser, you will understand that you cannot place small socks directly to a drawer with other folded clothes. It could look messy and disorganized. It is like everything is out of place. So, get one or two small containers that can be used as a bin intended for your baby’s socks only. Roll the socks by pair or tie them together, so you don’t lose the other pair. You can then place the container into one of the drawers in your baby’s dresser, or you can use the divider inside the baby closet.
- Pants, Shorts, and Shirts
This type of clothing is bigger than the other clothes. So, you can neatly fold and stack it. The rolling method can also be used for pants and shirts. However, since they are not of the same shapes and sizes, they won’t look organized. So, folding and stacking them can work better. If you have fewer shirts and shorts or pants, you can put them in one drawer. Just make sure to separate and do not stack them together for easy identification.
One way to learn how to organize baby dresser is by placing the long and short dresses of your baby in the hanging closet. This is easier for you to see them whenever you need them. Stacking and folding them into the drawer will not work for this type of clothing.
- Nighttime Clothes
Pajamas, footie, and other night clothing must be put in one drawer. You can use the fold and stack method. Make sure to separate and do not stack them together for you to identify easily.
Organizing Other Baby Essentials
- Diapers, Wipes, Diaper Mats
Other things that you need to organize is the diaper, wipes, and diaper mats, if you are using one. If you are using the top of the dresser as a changing table, you need to keep the diapers and other baby essentials on the first level of the drawer. Burp clothes should also go to this group. You can either have them together or specify a specific area within the said drawer for the diapers, wipes, and burp cloths, respectively, by using the drawer dividers. You can also place butt creams and powder together with the wipes.
You can use a hanging shoe organizer to store shoes and other footwear. You can also use a separate bin to keep all the footwear together. Infants don't walk too much yet, so expect it to be less dirty. However, to make sure they last, you have to clean and wash them thoroughly before storing them.
Being an expectant parent can get very overwhelming that you end up buying everything you think is needed. It is always best to stick with what is essential and know how to organize baby dressers according to how frequently they are needed daily. Knowing where a certain piece is stored can easily save time and promotes convenience no matter what situation the situation.
