Nursery Tour (Part 2)

Okay.. onto Part 2 of the Nursery Tour! If you haven't checked out Part 1 you can do so here. Now I know I said I would break the nursery tour into two parts.. but now it looks like it might have to be three (there's just so much to go through!)

As I mentioned earlier, this post (and the next) will focus on the storage and organisational aspect of the nursery. So let's start with the closet storage boxes...

 To make things as easy as possible, we organised the closet using Ikea Skubb Boxes (3pk for $30) and labelled each box accordingly (inspired by Allison at Utterly Organised). 


On the bottom-right shelf, we have nappies and 'bits & bobs'. As you can see we have a combination of both cloth and disposable nappies. We plan to use cloth at home and disposables when we're out... but we'll see how we go! In the 'bits & bobs' box we've got aromatherapy oils for the humidifier, dummies + dummy chain and a health care kit for babies from Kmart ($18) which includes a thermometer, medicine spoon, nasal aspirator & nail clippers.


On the middle-right shelf, we have 'toys & teds' and bath time. Toys and teds is pretty self explanatory; we've got all bub's toys in there including rattles and pram accessories. The bath time box holds all bub's bathing needs including shampoo, conditioner, lotions, creams, washers and cotton buds. We also got a bath thermometer from Kmart (which isn't a necessity but for only $8 we thought why not!).


On the top-right shelf, we have 'feeding' and bibs. The 'feeding' box has things I'll need right away like breast pads (I'm hoping I can breastfeed - fingers crossed!) and things I can use later on when bub moves onto solids. Most of this was given to us as gifts - although we did pick up the Ikea rainbow tableware for $6. At the moment we've only got 4 bibs, but I'm sure we'll have a lot more down the track.


On the top 2 shelves, we've got Hooded Towels, Blankets, Cot Sheets & Clothes that don't yet fit (size 1+). The clothes are just stored in a clear container from Big-W.



I hope you guys have found this somewhat helpful. I know that when I first started thinking about the nursery, I had no idea where to start and what I needed to get. I certainly didn't pull all this together overnight and the majority of these boxes remained empty until recently. 

If you're still interested and I haven't bored you to death already, keep an eye out for Part 3 of the Nursery Tour which I promise will be the last installment, where i'll go over what else is in the closet and how I've organised the chest of drawers.

  2. great organisation for your nursery, its always best to be prepared, and always helps the husband find things when they are clearly labelled haha.

    I wish I had more space in my sons room, but I think I need to restack the closet to not waste any.

  3. Oh my gosh, that is probably the most organised nursery I have ever seen, I love it! I am on an organisational kick at the moment, and even though I don't have a nursery to organise I loved this.

    I am so happy for you Louise, congrats again, I can't wait to hear more about how you are going with pregnancy and then with motherhood!
