Why is An Organized Baby Dresser Important?

As we all find out, no parent is spared from the never-ending mountain of items that a new baby needs. That's why an organized dresser is key.

An organized dresser helps keep everything the way it should be. And it makes the day-to-day task of taking care of your little one just a bit easier. Not to mention, it helps you keep track of where all those teeny tiny socks and [mittens] have disappeared to!

Furthermore, an organized dresser can help you keep track of the items you have and what needs to be restocked or replaced. For example, you can easily see when you are running low on diapers or clothes. Then you can take action to restock those items.

While keeping everything neat may seem like an insignificant task, being able to find what you need in seconds instead of minutes can be quite a relief when dealing with your little angel!

Tips for Organized a Baby Dresser

Now that you know the importance of an organized dresser, let's dive into some tips on how to achieve this.

Start by Decluttering

Before organizing anything, it’s important to go through all the items in your baby's dresser and discard any items that are no longer needed or used. Also, clear out clothes that are outgrown or have been damaged. This will help make your dresser easier to manage and provide you with a clear vision of what needs to be organized.

Sort by Type

Once you have decluttered, it’s time to sort. Start by grouping items such as clothes, toys, blankets, and diapers in separate piles. You can also create subcategories, such as tops, bottoms, and accessories (socks, mittens, etc.) This will help you determine how many drawers you need and what should go in each drawer.

Use Baskets or Bins

Baskets and bins can be a great way to keep small items such as socks, onesies, and bibs in one place. Investing in baskets or bins with lids can also help contain any mess that may occur from the tiny hands of your toddler!

Invest in Dividers

If you don’t want to use bins, invest in drawer dividers. This will help keep everything neat and tidy while making it easier to find what you are looking for.

Label Drawers

Labeling the drawers or baskets can help make it easier to know where everything belongs, saving you time when it comes to looking for something. You can use sticky labels, chalkboard labels, or even write directly on the drawer with a permanent marker.

Hang Up Clothes

If you have a lot of clothing items, consider hanging them up on hangers. This will help keep them organized and wrinkle-free. Hanging clothes will also save space in your dresser for other clothes that cannot be hung, like socks!

Store Items by Season

If you want to maximize the space in your baby's dresser, consider storing out-of-season items so that the current ones are easily accessible. This will not only help make room for other things but will also ensure that your little one's clothes are always in good condition and ready to wear when needed

Regular Maintenance of Your Baby's Dresser

Periodically go through the dresser and reassess its organization to ensure it is still meeting your needs as well as those of your baby. Doing this every now and then gives you the opportunity to make sure all items are still in good condition and nothing needs to be replaced or restocked.

FAQs About Organizing a Baby Dresser

Q: What do you put in a baby dresser?

A: Honestly, whatever you want! Generally, items such as clothes, toys, and blankets are kept in a baby dresser, but it's really up to you. You want to keep items that are used often and need to be within arm's reach.

Q: How do you fold baby clothes in a dresser?

A: Okay, folding baby clothes can be a frustrating task - I'm with you on that! They are just too tiny to fold nicely. Because of this, I really like using a dresser bin for each clothing type (tops, bottoms, socks, etc) and tossing them in there. This way, you don't have to worry about folding. You can just grab and go!

However, if you insist on folding baby clothes, here is how to do it. To fold a onesie, fold it lengthwise first, then tuck the arms inside and fold one more time so that the collar is lined up with the bottom of the garment.

Baby shorts and pants are easier to fold. Just fold them in half lengthwise and then again widthwise. Shorts may not need to be folded again.

Socks can be a bit tricky, but you can start by laying them out flat and folding each sock in thirds from the toe up to the heel. Then, just tuck one inside the other for easy storage.

Q: What baby clothes should go in each dresser drawer?

A: How you sort your baby's clothes in a dresser drawer depends on a few things, such as how much big the dresser is and how many clothes you need to store. It's helpful to assign different types of clothing to each drawer. For example, put onesies and other tops in the top drawer, bottoms in the middle drawer, and pajamas and other sleepwear in the bottom drawer.

If you still have space in your baby dresser, use bins or a dresser separator to store smaller items such as burp cloths, mittens, or cloth diapers.

Celebrate an Organized Baby Dresser

Getting and keeping your baby's dresser organized doesn't have to be a chore! By following these tips - sorting by size, using bins, labeling everything - you'll be able to keep baby's clothes neat and tidy.

This way, you can spend more time enjoying those precious moments with your little one instead of rummaging through their closet!

So go ahead! Get started on organizing your baby's dresser today and enjoy the satisfaction of a more organized space tomorrow!
