In Room Nursery Organization

Thursday, March 4, 2021

If you missed my 32 Week Bumpdate we actually moved in with my parents since we sold our house at the end of August. Our plan was to always have Merloe sleep in our room for at least a few months but now all of her items had to squeeze in our room, too! We had already purchased a dresser and bookshelf for her, but now those were going to be too big for our "in room nursery." So we ended up purchasing the smaller matching dresser and then once she has her own room it'll still be cohesive. 

She currently has one dresser (plus a little space in our closet with the bookshelf) and after doing a lot of research through Pinterest, YouTube and other bloggers I found this is what worked best for us. 

From left to right: nail file, diaper cream, hair brush, pacifiers and clips, syringe and disinfectant wipes, diaper wipes, diaper pail trash bags, boogie wipes, hand sanitizer, diapers

Middle Drawer

From left to right: short sleeves, long sleeves, bottoms, top & bottom sets, footies & gowns 
I used to keep her bows in this drawer too, but we have collected so many I moved them into the jars on top of the dresser

Bottom Drawer

From left to right: swaddles, towels (Minnie Mouse towel), washcloths, bassinet sheets, burp cloths 

I also made this checklist to help other mamas who have to create an in room nursery:

Overall we tried to keep it simple and only have what we thought we might need during her first few months of life. All of our extra items are in the garage like diapers, wipes, bigger clothes, etc. 

Other items that we have in our room include:

Halo Bassinest - We love this since it's easy to swivel and she's right by my side. If you want to keep it simple you could just use a Pack N Play until you're ready to move to the crib.


Ubbi Diaper Pail - MUST HAVE! I never smell anything!

Snuggle Me Organic - One of Merloe's favorite items, especially when she first came home. She loves to nap in her lounger. 

Boppy - I thought this was just ok, I've heard better things about other pillows. We mainly use this now for tummy time.

Skip Hop Wipeable Changing Pad - This wipeable changing pad makes it easy to clean after many accidents on the table.

Hatch Noise Machine

And for now we have our glider and diaper/nursing cart in the office, which is the next room over. It just wouldn't fit in our room, but my parents were generous enough to let us keep it in there while we're still here! We can't wait for her to have her own room one day, but for now this is what works perfectly for us!
