Nursery Tour (Part 3)

The last installment of the Nursery Tour is finally here! Thank you so much for your sweet comments on Part 1 and Part 2

So today I'll go through what else is in the closet and how I've organised the chest of drawers (aka the nappy station!).

I decided that I wanted to hang all the onesies and sleeping bags in the closet, using the Ikea Wooden Kids Hangers ($1 ea). Originally I'd sorted them into summer and winter clothes but after washing them recently, I also sorted them by size (just to make things easier).


Under the clothes, I have a few random things... like my giant suitcase (as I have nowhere else to store it!), my bubba moe baby sling (second hand from gumtree), a heater, a laundry basket for bub's dirty clothes (target) and a nappy pail for dirty cloth nappies.


A couple of other things I keep in the top of the closet (for now) are my nappy travel pack, shape sorter and tummy time mat.


That's it for the closet! Now for the chest of drawers...

The top-left drawer has items for bub's bottom half - things like leggings, socks and shoes (although I haven't bought any shoes yet) and the top-right drawer has items for bub's top half - singlets, beanies, mittens etc.


I've organised the middle drawer using more of the Ikea Skubb Boxes ($10 for 6) to store clean nappies (cloth and disposables), cloth inserts, cloth nappy liners, washers, creams and a small moon shaped bucket to hold water (if needed).


and lastly.. the bottom drawer or as I like to call it... the smelly drawer (for dirty nappies)!

So I've got bags for the dirty disposable wipes, liners and nappies (which will be tied up and thrown away after each change), a couple of wet bags for the dirty cloth nappies, poo-pourri diaper odor eliminator spray (to spray the cloth nappies before putting them in the wet bags) and also an organic all purpose cleaner (in case things get really messy!).


I plan to wash the cloth nappies every second day. Once a wet bag is full ill throw it in the nappy pail (in the closet) until it can be washed.

So there you have it!

I can't wait to start using the nursery. I know it will continue to change over the next few months and I'm looking forward to seeing it grow!

I hope you guys enjoyed the Nursery Tour and it provided some ideas/inspiration to those of you who are setting up your own nursery. I'd love to hear what you think!

  2. Those itsy bitsy baby clothes are so cute!

  3. Love how organised your nursery is! :) Especially the little clothes hanging up. We have a huge set of drawers so I've just kinda thrown all of baby's clothes in there, it does't look as pretty or as adorable as having them all hanging up.
