If you have a baby, you are most likely all too familiar with the feeling of having baby socks, onesies, and shoes all over your home. Excess clutter, such as baby clothes, can cause additional stress and lessen productivity in your home. Simplify your already hectic life by organizing your baby closet. 

Check out our list of six baby closet organization tips and start organizing today!

1. Give Everything a Place

To keep your baby closet organized, make sure that everything has a designated place. Some clothes are easier to hang up, while others should be folded and put in baby clothes storage containers or dresser drawers. We recommend that you hang up the following items: 

  • Onesies
  • Pajamas
  • T-shirts
  • Jackets
  • Dresses
  • Rompers
  • Sweaters
  • Sweatshirts

Once everything is hanging up, you can fold the following items and put them in containers or drawers:

  • Pants
  • Jeans
  • Shorts
  • Skirts
  • Socks
  • Shoes
  • Bathing suits

2. Arrange Clothes by Size for Maximum Baby Closet Organization

Arranging your baby’s clothes by size is guaranteed to save you precious time when dressing him or her. For the clothes you hang up, make or buy some closet dividers and section their clothing out accordingly. Then, make a label for anything you put in a container or drawers.

We recommend sectioning the clothes out like so:

  • 0 – 3 Months
  • 3 – 6 Months
  • 6 – 12 Months
  • 12 – 18 Months
  • 18 – 24 Months

By organizing your baby’s clothes by size, you won’t have to waste time searching for an outfit that fits them. Instead, you can quickly grab something and go

3. Don’t Forget About the Accessories

Once all of your baby’s clothes are organized and have a place in the nursery closet, you can start to organize any accessories. 

First, take all of your baby’s hats, headbands, clips, and bows and put them in one container and label it “hair accessories.” 

Then, organize all the bibs, blankets, and pacifiers. You will want to clearly label these items and keep them within reach since they will be frequently used.  

4. Install a Second Clothing Rod for Optimal Nursery Closet Organization

Since baby clothes are so small, they will take up significantly less vertical space in the closet. Capitalize on this extra space by adding a second clothing rod. With the second rod, you will easily be able to hang all of your baby’s clothes and still have space for everything else!

5. Keep a “Too Small” Basket on the Floor

Babies tend to outgrow clothes quickly and you don’t want to keep clothes that are too small in their outfit rotation. Put a basket on the floor of the baby closet and label it “too small” or “give away.” 

Once your baby grows out of an outfit, toss it in this bin. Every few months you can donate the clothes in the bin, give them away to other expectant parents, or save them if you plan on having more kids someday. 

6. Keep Off-Season Clothes Out of Sight

With a baby, there will most likely be days that you will need to change their clothes multiple times a day. Make the process of picking out an outfit even easier by storing off-season clothes in a box on a higher shelf or the floor. This baby clothes storage hack is guaranteed to save you time when changing his or her clothes!
