As I’ve said time and time again, babies come with a lot of stuff . Luckily, most of their stuff is pretty little. In my kid’s dresser, I can fit most of the clothing in just one of the drawers, leaving lots of storage in the other ones. Since we just used a short, 3 drawer dresser as a changing table, we keep changing necessities in the top drawer:
As an infant, we kept most of this stuff on a separate cart next to the dresser, but as she ages, we aren’t changing nearly as often. (I guess I need to start planning what to do in this drawer and the top of it for when she doesn’t need any diapers!)
In the middle drawer , we keep all the current clothing:
The general set up is shirts on the left (long sleeve on the top, short sleeve on the bottom), bottoms in the middle (pants on top, shorts on bottom), and pajamas on the right. Note how poorly they’re folded. She’s at the stage where she will say no to certain clothing and then want a different shirt. I’m not going to spend time folding her clothes all cutesy when they will either be thrown back in here or have food/toothpaste on them within a minute. Some things, you just need to let go. This is one of mine. #noapologies
The bottom drawer is, in my mind, the most important drawer:
We keep the next size up in here. This is crucial because then you are never trying to find the next size when the kid happens to grow overnight! When you put the clothes in here, you can do a quick inventory of seasonality and you will know exactly what you’re missing before your kid needs it!
