If you’ve recently welcomed a little one into your family–or you will soon–you’re probably looking for ways to make your life easier. Organizing your nursery closet is one way to do just that!

You’ve probably purchased a lot of baby clothes, and you’ve almost certainly been gifted some too. Read on for tips and tricks to get those clothes organized and keep them that way.

Sort by Size

The easiest way to organize baby clothes? By size. This ensures that your little one gets to wear an outfit before they outgrow it, you’ll always know what size(s) you’re short on and you can easily grab the next size up when the time comes.

For hanging clothes, labeled dividers are a lifesaver. Use these to sort clothes by newborn, 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months, 9-12 months and beyond. Dividers are available in a wide range of styles and materials, so you’re sure to find a set that matches your baby’s nursery.

What to Hang vs What to Fold

Hang Complete Outfits

For maximum convenience, hang up full outfits and your baby’s “nice” clothes. This makes it easier to grab a change of clothes quickly. Keep the closet neat and prevent clothes from slipping by using fabric or velvet hangers. No matter the size of your space, Closets by Liberty™ offers closet systems with extra hanging options. From our 4-Foot to the extra large 10-Foot, we’ve got your dream system to help you organize your baby’s closet.

You can further organize your nursery closet by sorting clothes by frequency of use. Everyday items go front and center while seasonal clothes or more formal attire are stored in the back or even in airtight storage bins.

Fold Accessories and Single Items

Accessories like socks, hats and burp cloths are best suited for folding and storing in drawers or on shelves. When it comes to clothes, many parents prefer folding onesies, shirts and pants that do not make up a full outfit.

Use drawer dividers to keep things organized, or opt for labeled baskets if you’re a little short on drawer space. This makes it easy for you and anyone who may be lending a hand with the baby to find what they need quickly. For maximum functionality, choose a system with ample shelves and drawer space and add on deep drawers or extra shelving to fit your needs.
