Sophia is now three years old (CRAZY, I know) and Charlotte just turned 11 months old, so I’ve had a nursery (that’s well organized, I might add) for quite a while now. I need my rooms and spaces to remain well organized and tidy. It keeps me sane!
The nursery is a particularly fun room to organize – there are usually fun, bright colors that form the palette of the room and/or playful room themes that dictate a room’s décor. And it’s a lot of fun to make these spaces ordered and neat!
At the same time, the nursery is especially challenging to organize. First, there are all sorts of small items that typically need to be strategically stored for quick and easy access: diapers, wipes, bibs, pacifiers, towels, wash cloths, etc. Second, the room is home to a little one, who when that baby becomes mobile and starts exploring, well… things get disorganized really quickly! When that mobile baby becomes a mischievous toddler intent on making a mess, then that presents a whole other set of challenges, shall we say?
Let’s get to some ideas on how to intelligently organize your nursery!
