Baby Clothes Organization Hacks

Life is crazy with a baby learn how to organize and store their clothes and accessories with these easy tips!

Baby Clothes Organization. Does your life feel like a complete mess with the endless baby clothes, accessories, and necessities that come along with a baby? If you are anything like me, you probably had no idea how to start organizing these baby clothes in some sort of order. By color? By size? 3M vs. 3 – 6 M (what is the difference??) By season? Do you hang items or store them in drawers? Don’t even get me started-on weight sizing. I need a step-by-step guide, please. They don’t call it Mommy Brain because you get smarter – you are now solely responsible for taking care of a tiny human. There are so many thoughts running through your mind.

What. Is. The. Best? The saying is true, after your first kid you become an expert in all thing’s kids – HA! Well, I may not be an expert, but I did make a lot of mistakes and I know a lot more now than I did when I was pregnant. Sit back and enjoy knowing that you won’t have to make the same mistakes as I did. You may even feel a bit smarter for it.

So, let me just outline some mistakes:

  • Figure out if you like to hang or fold first. I did both and LOTS of cute things where missed. I was so used to going into her drawer for onesies, that I forgot I hung up anything. Mommy brain?
  • Don’t try to get all crazy about size. 3 months vs. 3-6 months. Put these together. I ended up putting it in the next size, 6 months, and by the time I got there, she was too big for these pieces.
  • Take all the free clothes you can get. Use them for daycare or playing outside or eating – my kid hated bibs, so she was always a mess after eating, thus, staining a lot of adorable outfits. If you don’t use them, you can always donate to a mom in need.
  • Folding – you can KonMari as much as you like, but kid’s clothes are tiny and hard to fold.
    • Onesies: I just folded in half so I could see if there was a cute saying or image to spark my memory.
    • Pants: Again, just folded in half and then sorted by “jeans,” solid colors, patterns, short/skirts.
    • Shirts: I organized like I did the pants; short sleeve, long sleeve and sweatshirts. I folded like the onesies, just in half with the front showing.
    • Sleep Sacks: GAME CHANGER – get yourself a ton of these. There are a lot of different styles and brands, find one you like and get 5 (because I don’t keep up with my laundry). I folded these in half lengthwise and then in half widthwise and called it a day.
    • Washcloths & Burp Cloths: I rolled these! Much better than folding and easier to grab.
    • Sheets: Don’t even try.
    • Blankets: This was the gift of choice for a lot my friends and I ended up with like, 50. I just folded in half lengthwise and then thirds, Like the KonMari method.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help. This goes beyond clothes storage :)

Now, on to the fun stuff! Here are some of my organization must-haves. I couldn’t live without.
