Have you noticed that baby clothes can be really inconsistent with sizes? Well they are!
A 0000 from one brand may be heaps bigger/smaller than a 0000 from another brand.
I finally got around to washing all of my daughters baby clothes today and this is the strategy that I used to sort and organise:
First, I hang all my clothes up. I just prefer it that way. Singlets, bibs, socks, wraps get folded in the draw but everything else is hanging .
I also use the same hangers for everything. For the kids i love the white hangers from toys r us. They come in a pack of 10.
Then i separate each of the clothes in to sizes. 00000 then 0000 then 000 then 00 etc
Since the hangers are all the same size I can see which outfits are longer or bigger. So I move them over to the spot where they fit best / measure up correctly.
Then I group by style and organise by colour from light to dark.
Grouping by style: towel onesies/pjs/sleeping clothes first. Then day time onesies – short ones followed by long ones. Then outfits.
Colour: I start with white and order the clothes by colour within their group.
Then repeat for each size section.
You can get clothing size dividers to hang in between the sizes – but I don’t have any yet.
When your baby grows out of each size, pack those clothes together. This will make it easy to wash and organise for the next baby or easier to find if you are donating/selling your clothes.
Do you have any wardrobe tips to add?
I would love to hear what you did with your baby clothes.
