Organise baby clothes
Children grow pretty quickly, which is especially evident in their first years of life. During their first year, babies grow out of clothes on a monthly basis. Therefore, if you received gifts or bought baby clothes for the first twelve months of your new baby’s life, make sure to sort the clothes into groups of items. Try using drawer dividers or re-cycle old boxes. Pack the clothes according to age and size, this way you won’t have trouble finding clothes that fit.
Add more storage options
One of the best ways to maximize the storage space and organise a baby unit is to add additional storage options. For example, you can easily add an extra hanging rail. Alternatively, stack drawers make it really easy to find items which can make your life easier. This is especially true if you have to work with tall wardrobes that have no organisation option aside from a hanging rail. Of course, if you’re planning to use the drawers and other dividers, it’s very important that you label them. This will ensure maximum efficiency.
Utilise door space

However, what to do with clothes that your child outgrows? You still need to store these items, especially if you’re planning to donate, give or sell them. It would be a waste of space to just throw them back into their regular drawer if they’re not going to be used anymore. Therefore, designate a drawer or storage box that will hold the clothes and other accessories that your baby no longer needs.
If you’re planning to turn the nursery into your child’s room later on, and you have a specific budget to properly equip it, you may want to find a suitable unit that will provide the most efficient baby organisation, but match the room well as your child grows older. Therefore, it’s important that you take the time to consider how you will use the space in the future when it is no longer a nursery and let this be a guide to help with organising your baby storage and the baby unit or wardrobe. After all, having a whole nursery layout worked out will be of tremendous help when positioning and utilizing the wardrobe as well.
