As many new moms quickly find out, their newborn infants' closet will contain more clothing than their own collection! And that adorable newborn will also grow out of them faster than you can say how adorable they look in that outfit!
At momstown KW, moms-to-be created their own closet dividers at their Belly Basics event! This simple and inexpensive craft will help to keep a baby's closet organized and help keep baby brain at bay as moms-to-be start nesting or picking out an outfits for their bundle of joy.
You can organize the closet a bunch of different ways;
1. You can organize by size. Newborn, 0-3 months, 3-6 months, and so on. This is especially handy since not all baby sizes are the same. If you try on a 0-3 outfit and find it too big, simply rehang it in the 3-6 month section!
2. You can organize by season (great for older babies); Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter. Since 6-12 month sizes range over 2 seasons, you can have 6-12 month t-shirts in the spring/summer section and long sleeved shirts in the fall/winter section!
3. You can organize by style; pants, sweaters, hoodies, dresses, etc. This is great for older kids. They can even help you make the dividers for their own closets!
Foam or wooden dividers (available at craft stores and some dollar stores)
Embellishments to match baby's nursery theme or colour scheme; stickers, ribbons, foam shapes, rhinestones, wooden shapes, foam or wooden letters
Markers or paint (grab some fun stencils)
Simply decorate each divider with a number or season and use embellishments to create a special look for baby's (or older child's) closet.
Note: These make a FABULOUS baby shower gift for any mom-to-be!
