Nursery Dresser Organization
The other day I showed a sneak peek of Owen’s nursery dresser organization on Instagram (@twotwentyone). Well, today is the day I share my nursery dresser organization tips and tricks with you. Get excited.
I love our 8 drawer IKEA Hemnes dresser in white stain (if you’re debating between white stain and white, check out this post I wrote on the subject). This dresser is a great piece of furniture for the price, and I think it works great in a nursery.
Nursery Dresser Organization Supplies
- a few sets of drawer organizers (found HERE or HERE or HERE)
- one compartmented drawer organizer (found HERE)
How to Organize Baby Dresser
I’m going to show you the drawers starting in the top left and work my way through all the drawers and end on the bottom right.
Since we use the dresser as a changing table, which is hands down the best use of space, I put diapers and an extra package of wipes in the drawer. More wipes are stored in the nursery closet.
We originally had our wipe dispenser in the drawer, but we ultimately decided it was easier to have it on the top of the dresser to the right of the changing pad.
- diaper creams
- diaper bags
- changing pad covers
- movement monitor
The second drawer from the left houses our absurd amount of washcloths. We use them under Owen’s booty when we change his diaper as an extra layer of protection. Because I could care less if the washcloths get stained with poop. Plus, I can always bleach them. But we also use them for other things, like wiping up spit up.
This drawer also contains butt creams, powder, diaper bags, Owen’s movement monitor (I seriously love that little device– it’s the only thing that gives me peace of mind when he’s sleeping. Read more about it here), and extra changing pad covers.
To be completely honest, there’s usually one of those changing table blankets (the gray and white striped material) over the gray and white arrow changing pad cover because I don’t want that changing pad to get stained. We love the changing table blankets, which explains why we own four of them. Hey, they’re only $5 at Ikea.
- newborn clothes
- 3 month pajamas
This drawer has changed a little bit because I took this photo before Owen was born. Since I didn’t think he would be in newborn clothes for very long, I dedicated this drawer to his newborn clothes and 3 month pajamas. I was wrong about how long he’d be in newborn clothes though. He wore them for a little over a month.
I used the drawer organizers to help with the nursery dresser organization, which separates his clothes into pajamas, white onesies, regular onesies, and one piece outfits.
I’m a big fan of rolling clothes when it comes to packing my suitcase, and I found that this method works great for putting Owen’s clothes in the dresser.
Now this drawer is dedicated to his size 3-6 month pajamas. You’d think my breastmilk contained steroids because this kid is bulking up.
- newborn and 3 month clothes
This drawer has his short-sleeved onesies, long-sleeved onesies, one piece outfits, pants, and socks.
- healthcare and grooming kit
- diaper bags
The middle left drawer is sort of a catch-all. I used a drawer organizer with compartments for this drawer.
I’ll just go ahead and list everything that’s in this drawer. Hats, lovies (the blankets with heads), thermometer, Nose Frida, lotions, bath washes, washcloths, petroleum jelly, bulb syringe, grooming kit, pacifiers, pacifier clips, diaper bags, and wipes.
Behind the organizer I’m hoarding some of his hospital stuff (receiving blanket, beanies, measuring tape) until I find a better place to put it. I may or may not have also saved a size newborn diaper from the diaper package we brought home from the hospital. I held the diaper in my hand the other day and almost got a little weepy, amazed that he was once small enough to fit into that size. Seriously, motherhood makes you soft– emotionally and physically. Hah. See what I did there?
- swaddle blankets
- burp cloths
This is probably my favorite drawer. Doesn’t it look pretty with all those fabrics?
In this drawer, you’ll find bibs, DIY burp cloths, swaddle blankets (found here and here), and swaddles (found here). I’ve found that you can never have too many burp cloths.
- baby blankets
- mattress pads
- boppy covers
- 6-9 month clothes
The bottom left drawer is where I keep his blankets, crib sheets, mattress pad, boppy covers (I got mine from this shop), and some 6-9 onesies and pajamas I’ve already washed.
- 3-6 month clothes
I use the bottom right drawer for 3-6 month clothes I’ve washed– socks, one piece outfits, pants, pajamas, long-sleeved onesies, short-sleeved onesies, baby legs, and extra bibs.
But now that Owen is fitting into most of these clothes, some have moved up into the drawers on the top row. I may end up moving the drawer with the burp cloths down to this drawer and the clothes into the former burp cloth drawer.
Nursery Dresser Drawer Organizers
If you live near an Ikea I recommend investing in the drawer organizers. If you don’t live near an Ikea you can order the organizers from here.
They make organizing clothes, especially baby clothes so much easier. And like you saw with the catch-all drawer, they also help with organizing random items too. Plus, like with most things found at Ikea, they’re inexpensive. A set of 6 organizers is only $8. Since we live 2 hours from an Ikea, I stocked up on them on our last trip. And I’ve already used them for other things, like the postpartum care kit I put together in our master bathroom.
I purchased 5 sets of 6 (35 total) organizers for the dresser. For the configuration in the photos, I used 7 small, 10 medium, and 5 large, plus the large organizer in the left middle drawer. So I didn’t use all of the smaller organizers, but I’ve used them in different places around the house.
Anchor Baby Dresser
The IKEA Hemnes dresser tips over VERY easily– see the photo below (look at the back leg). All it takes is a child opening most of the drawers. PLEASE anchor all the furniture and electronics in your home! A child dies every two weeks as a result of a tip-over incident. These deaths are 100% preventable. I strongly encourage you to read my blog post on how to anchor furniture and electronics.

I love how organized his dresser is! I need to get my act together and get some of those drawer organizers… that’s an awesome price but we live no where near an IKEA. Thanks for sharing!
Yes you do! They’re awesome! Do you have a friend or family member who lives near an Ikea and they can ship them to you? I have my best friend pick stuff up for me when she goes to her Ikea and she brings me the stuff whenever she visits.
amazon has them
you can order online from ikea!
I wanted Skubb organizers for our nursery but they don’t ship them! They look so handy!
You mentioned the Nose Frida; what’s your opinion on it? My family thinks it’s the grossest idea. I don’t want to invest in something if I’m just going to use the $2 bulb syringe anyway, so I’m looking for other opinions.
Do you have a friend or family member who lives near an Ikea and they can ship them to you? I have my best friend pick stuff up for me when she goes to her Ikea and she brings me the stuff whenever she visits.
I haven’t had to use the Nose Frida on Owen yet but all my friends swear by it. I get how people think it’s gross but there’s no way you can ingest their snot. The way I look at it, if it provides Owen relief when he’s congested I’ll be more than happy to use it. 🙂
Loooooove the nose frida. We use it all the time.
We’ve used the Nosefrida for both of our girls and plan to use it for the one on the way.
It really is the best way to get the snot out when they’re too little to blow for themselves. And it’s easy to clean, unlike the blue bulb.
When they get older and start getting huge boogers then it’s usually time for me to stop. But by then, it’s usually a lot easier to use a tissue.
We have the skubb drawers organizers and love them! Best thing ever for their little clothes!
Totally agree! Love them!
So funny that I stumbled on this pin…I have the exact same dresser in the nursery and kallax unit in the closet! Still trying to figure out which storage cubes i want to buy for the kallax though. And I love the skubb organizers too! I have them in my dresser currently and will be buying some for the nursery after reading your post so thank you! Do you know how many sets you got for all the drawers?
Hi, Kath! So sorry I missed your comment. I used 5 sets total for the dresser (7 small, 10 medium, and 5 large). Hope that helps!
Great, thanks so much!
How does five sets equal 7 small, 10 medium, 5 large? Please clarify further?! Thanks.
Each set consists of two small, two medium and two large.
I wanted to copy the exact organization but I seem to be missing one medium? It looks like you used 11 in the pics but I’m not sure cause I can’t tell very well. No clue what I’m doing wrong. Please help! 🙂
We have the same dresser! I used cut up cardboard boxes to make dividers. Our little guy is two now and it’s still working great for us! We have toys and stuff in some of the drawers, too.
Have you seen these overlays for it? I’m considering them… Maybe you should try them first!
I’ve subscribed to your blog for quite awhile. Thank you for posting your nursery organization ideas! I LOVED what you did using the Skubb drawer organizers and Kalax closet organizer so much-I went to Ikea (first time there-it’s 40 minutes away) and got them for all three of my kids drawers. Thank you! I’ve been looking for an affordable and eye appealing system to use-then saw your post. Being a girl with more traditional tastes I haven’t been drawn to Ikea furniture in the past, however, after visiting their store for the first time I now know what a HUGE variety of items they offer for great prices! I thought they primarily sold furniture. Big misconception! They have everything you need for a home. We are going through a major home renovation in the next couple months so I now plan to spend a whole day going through the Ikea store and getting all we will need post renovation. I already found a new comforter for my three year olds new room (when I got the Skubb organizers). I’ve been looking everywhere for the right color and style. Congratulations on little Owen and thanks for your great blog. You’ve made this mama an Ikea shopper and so relieved to find so much at one place for our upcoming house project.
You have such great ideas for decorating and organizing-my two favorite things. 🙂 I will continue to visit your site.
Thank you so much, Patty! I’m so glad you’ve found inspiration from my posts!
You’re so lucky to live only 40 minutes from your Ikea! And yes, I totally agree– they definitely have different styles of furniture to appeal to different tastes and a plethora of home items. I love to window shop on their website and go with a list so I know the things I definitely want. It’s easy to get overwhelmed and distracted when you get in the store. But I have to be a little more strategic about my trips since it’s 4 hours roundtrip to the nearest Ikea.
Best of luck with your renovation!
I am loving all the colors throughout the dresser. Wondering where you purchase your fabric for the burp clothes and where you bought the changing table covers? Are those Ikea? Thanks, and love your site.
Thanks, Sara! I purchased the burp cloth fabrics from OnlineFabricStore.com and Fabric.com. The changing pad cover (grey with white arrows) is from the Etsy shop ModFox. Hope that helps!
I’m so happy that Pinterest brought me to this post, it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for! I’m pregnant with my first, due in January. I have this Ikea dresser in the nursery & bought 2 sets of these organizers but now wish I had enough to match your awesome drawer organization. Do you happen to know how many sets of 6 you needed for the dresser? Thanks so much for sharing!
Congrats! So glad I could help! I had to go back through the photos and look because I had no idea. Hah! I’m going to say 5 sets (of 6) because I used 7 small, 10 medium, and 5 large.
Awesome! And I’m making the (4 hour) trip to Ikea this weekend, perfect! Thanks so much.
So what exactly is the total. I’m still confused as to what and how much to buy.
If you buy 5 sets, you will have enough. Each set consists of six pieces: 2 small, 2 medium, 2 large. Therefore, 5 sets will give you 30 total pieces, including the 10 medium boxes that you need for Chelsea’s plan. Plus you will have 10 small and 10 large boxes, although Chelsea only used 7 small and 5 large. You will have a few of those left over to use elsewhere.
Go to the Ikea website and look at the Skubb boxes. Buy five Skubb sets.
I have been eyeing that dresser for the longest time and now that I’ve stumbled on your post, I am convinced it’s perfect for the nursery. My only hesitation is the assembly! Was it easy for you to put together?
Hi, Lauren! So sorry I missed your comment. My husband assembled the dresser, and it definitely wasn’t easy. But I think it’s doable. Just make sure you use power tools. Best of luck!
Wow i love the way u roll the clothes. I am not sure if i am good at that. I am expecting mine next April n i have been looking for tips.
Also the shelf above the dresser did u get it in ikea too? N the lamp n the stuffs on it too?
Sep the shows the dresser is adorable..
Thanks! Yep, the shelf is from Ikea, and the lamp is from The Land of Nod. You can find out where everything in the nursery is from here: https://www.twotwentyone.net/2014/10/nursery-sources/
How do you get the clothes to roll so nicely? I tried it in my nursery and even the newborn stuff takes up way more space in the drawers. I have the same dresser 🙂
Practice? Maybe I should try to post a gif of how I roll clothes. Hah! If I’m doing a onesie, I fold it in half and just roll it up. Don’t you love the dresser?
I love all your brightly colored burp clothes and blankets! Where did you get them from??
Thanks! My mom and I make the burp cloths. Here’s the tutorial: https://www.twotwentyone.net/2012/06/diy-baby-onesies-and-burp-cloths/. The fabrics are from different places– Fabric.com, OnlineFabricStore.com, JoAnn Fabric. What specific blankets are you wanting to know about? Reply to this comment, and I’ll let you know about the blankets! 🙂
I was wondering how man of the drawer organizers you bought. I am going to ikea soon, 3 hours away, and would like to pick them up but have no idea how many and how many of each sizes I should get. Love your nursery!!
Thanks, Amanda! I used 5 sets total for the dresser (7 small, 10 medium, and 5 large), plus the large organizer in the middle left drawer. Hope that helps! Happy Ikea trip!
So helpful, this inspired an ikea trip and full on drawer organizing for my little one on the way!!! Thank you 🙂
So glad you enjoyed the post, Hannah! Happy organizing!
Hi! Love your organization! Is your hemnes dresser in white or white stain? Thanks!
Thanks! White stain.
Are you happy with the white stain? We are getting the smaller version of this dresser, and can’t decide between white and white stain. I’ve seen folks say that white is actually creamy off-white, but that white stain looks like it’s not finished and needs another coat. It looks great in your photos – are you happy with the color, and does it seem truly white?
Yep, the white stain is definitely more of a true white than the white. I had the same concern as you– the white stain looks somewhat unfinished because you can kind of see the grain coming through but it’s not super noticeable so it doesn’t bother me. The creamy color of the white bothered me more. Especially because Owen’s crib is a bright white. The white stain matches his crib very well. I do have the white Kallax 4×2 shelving unit in his closet but since the doors are typically closed there’s not a big issue of it clashing with the crib. So in short, I’m glad I got the white stain over the white. Hope that helps!
love the paint color!!! What is the name of it?
Thanks! It’s Tidewater SW 6477 by Sherwin-Williams.
I’ve been eyeing furniture from IKEA for awhile but the closest store is hours away. My main concern is the quality. I love this dresser, but do you feel that it will last a good while? I’d just hate to drive so far to find all their furniture is “Walmart quality” and cheap composite wood.
P.S. I’m new to your blog (thanks Pinterest!), but so far I love it!!!
Hey Kendra! Glad you found me! 🙂
We have four pieces of IKEA furniture in our house, and we’re very happy with the them. And I’m very critical about the quality of large pieces of furniture. This specific dresser is sturdy. It’s made of solid pine wood, which you can see by looking at the sides of the dresser drawers. We had a slight issue with one of the top drawers not sliding in and out very well, but we played musical drawers, switched them around, and that helped with the issue. You can’t see it in the photos, but the drawers also come pre-lined on the bottom, which is nice. The quality is great, especially for $229. Hope this helps with your decision!
I love the Ikea Hemnes collection. We just purchased the 3 drawer dresser in white stain for my soon to be baby’s nursery. I am debating whether or not to return it for the white instead of the white stain. We bought a white crib and I want it to match…do you find that the white stain matches well with other whites in the room?
My son’s crib is the white Modern Elemental from The Land of Nod, and it’s a bright white. The white stain dresser matches it much better than the white would have. The white is too off-white/creamy. Hope that helps! You can see more photos of the nursery furniture here: https://www.twotwentyone.net/2014/10/owens-bright-and-colorful-nursery/
Awesome, thanks! I was worried about the white stain looking too “grainy” with the wood showing through. Do the white shelves from ikea match pretty well?
Thanks! I love Owen’s room!
Yep, I think they match pretty well.
My sons white crib has a glossier off white finish.. Some Italian brand.. The white matches but they aren’t close together so you would never know.
The satin is grainy almost looked like a just a primer in the store but I guess you can paint it later on if you wanted some change which you can’t with the white its texture is too glossy.
It also matched my sister pottery barn crib bc it’s an more of an off white.
Hi! Love all the fabric prints in burp cloth and swaddle drawer. What type of fabric is it? I love the prints.
Thanks! The burp cloth fabric is regular cotton quilting fabric or flannel. Most are from JoAnn Fabric, Fabric.com, and OnlineFabricStore.com.
THANK YOU! I have been scrolling pinterest for weeks – I knew SOMEONE would answer the “white stain” vs “white” ikea question! Seeing you crib (very similar to mine) and knowing you think the white stain matches better – I am now ready to make the commute to Ikea to purchase my dresser and organizers! Our store is only 45mins away – but I really wanted to avoid walking the whole store just to view color options! In to the market and out before I spend too much :). Your nursery is perfect – thanks for sharing!
So glad I could help! I totally know what you mean because I went back and forth about which color to get. Thankfully, when we made the 2 hour trek to Ikea they only had white stain in stock, white wasn’t available. So it worked out perfectly.
So…now that it’s a few months later, does the dresser still look this organized day to day?
Pretty much! I’ve moved some stuff around but it looks pretty much the same.
What’s the depth of these drawers? Wondering if it’s deep enough. Are your pics with the drawers fully pulled out? It looks like the items near the end of the drawer would be hard to get to
I don’t know. It says on the IKEA website though. There’s a few inches of space that remains in the main unit when you pull the drawers out. It doesn’t bother me, especially because I only paid $229 for the dresser.
It doesn’t say the depth of the drawers on the website. Would you be able to measure for me pls? Also did you not have a changing table wooden attachment for the change mat? I wanted to get one to attach
I think I remember this is what my Hemnes dresser looked like right before my son was born. :0) so beautiful and perfect! Then I went back to work :0/
we still use it for a changing table(hoping not for long!) My husband had built a little frame with rubber feet to keep the pad from moving. They didn’t have the white stain when we bought ours a few years ago.
Since he is 2.5 and much bigger clothes we use middle two drawers for clothes, bottom for sheets blankets snow pants sweatshirts bathing suits, extra diapers. Top ones for socks & undies 2 for PJs and one for all the medicines creams lotions etc.(will have to move all of that out one we buy the big boy bed) I bought dividers at Container store. But they were a pain to install.
I just bought those dividers from Ikea for my dresser and LOVE them!
Hi! Awesome post! I’ve been planning on buying the same dresser! Do you find a need for a second smaller piece as well, like the 3 drawer chest from ikea as well?
Thanks! No, the dresser and closet (https://www.twotwentyone.net/2014/10/nursery-closet/) provide more than enough storage space for all of his things.
I am so glad I have stumbled upon your blog! I’m not the keenest at organization, so you’re post has helped me not drown in the massive amount of new baby stuff I have acquired :). I was wondering what wash clothes you use from IKEA? I haven’t been able to find a thick durable wash cloth yet.
Glad you found me! I use the Krama washcloths, but I use them mostly as changing pad protectors under Owen’s booty (https://www.twotwentyone.net/?p=9231).
I recently bought the white stain Hemnes for my baby’s nursery. I’m debating if I should put a clear coat of water based poly on it to help with clean up and prevent any stains. Just curious if you think yours is easy to clean without it. Thanks for the post!
We never really get anything on it that requires cleaning up so I can’t really say. If you want to be extra careful I’d say go ahead.
Would you please enlighten a little further as to how five sets of 6: 7 small, 10 medium & 5 large equals “5 sets total used for dresser”. The math seems to me if if you bought five sets of six that would equal 30. You calculate: 7 small, 10 medium and 5 large, which I total as 22!? Please further clarify real soon. Thanks.
Eileen, The SKUBB set of 6 comes with 2 small, 2 medium and 2 large. In order to get the 10 mediums that Chelsea used, she needed 5 sets. She would have ended up with 3 smalls and 5 larges left over.
New mom to be! Love this! my question is did you attach the dresser to the wall? I went to look at the dresser and in the description it mentioned that you should attach it so it wouldn’t fall. That was the only reason why I haven’t purchased it yet. Yours looks amazing though!
We haven’t attached it to the wall yet. We probably will when Owen is old enough to pull out the drawers and scale the dresser. There are different furniture wall straps you can buy on Amazon or in baby stores to attach any furniture to walls though.
Hi, what color is the paint on the walls? I am looking for something similar 🙂
Tidewater SW 6477 by Sherwin-Williams.
Hi! I love your burp cloths (and the tutorial 🙂 )…where did you find the beautiful fabrics? Such a great collection of colors and patterns!
You have helped this Type A organization mommy-to-be immensely! I have a different dresser but did get the Skubb organizers and I love them! I found you on Pintwrest but will subscribe to your blog.
Hi, we are planning to get this dresser. Thanks for the inspiration. Do you have to secure this to your wall or its sturdy enough?
I think it’s really important to secure all furniture to the wall, especially this dresser.
I was just wondering how you roll owens clothes? I do it for my daughter alexis, but can’t seem to get them so they fit like yours do. Any tips or video?
I’ll have to post a video because I get asked that a lot.
i love this dresser!? I m so eyeing it! ?M just waiting for a little time to pass before I jump on my uninitiated husband with a puppy face to buy this baby! N thanks for spoiling me! I m buying those badass drawer bins/ organizers too!
Where is the changing pad from?
All the nursery sources, with links to the products can be found here: https://www.twotwentyone.net/2014/10/nursery-sources/
Hi, great website! I love your nursery posts. I have a question about your dresser. I noticed on the IKEA website they recommend securing the hemnes dressers to the wall so they don’t fall on small children. Did you do this with your dresser? It scares me a little that there is a possibility that a dresser will fall on my toddler. Also, how does IKEA recommend one secures it to the wall?
Thank you! You should secure all furniture and electronics that can tip over onto a child (dressers, TVs, TV stands, bookcases, nightstands, leaning mirrors, etc.), not just IKEA furniture, because a child dies every 2 weeks from a tip-over incidents and most of those incidents involve a TV. IKEA is just being really proactive about informing people about tip-over incidents. I actually did a post on how to secure furniture a couple weeks ago. Please read it and share with your friends. 🙂 And thank you for reminding me to add a link to the post to this blog posts! Have a great weekend! https://www.twotwentyone.net/how-to-anchor-furniture/
How do you decide what to hang and what to put in the dresser?
I hung all of his outfits, dressier shirts and pants, and put all of his separates in the dresser.
Thanks! So what about onesies with matching pants. You would hang that? Also how do you know the difference between a 1 piece outfit versus pjs? Do pjs always have feet?
How did you secure the changing pad onto the dresser?
How did you secure the changing pad to the dresser?
It came with a strap that could be screwed into the back of the dresser.
Thank you for your post! Would you mind my asking how tall you are and if you find the height of the dresser is comfortable for changing a kiddo? I’m 5’4 and when I saw this dresser, I thought it was a bit high, especially when adding a changing pad. Thanks!
You’re welcome! I’m 5’10”. However, my mom is around 5’5″ and hasn’t had an issue changing my son on the dresser.
This is so helpful. I am featuring this on my site if you don’t mind.
Any advice on how to roll sleepers? I really want to try rolling everything like you did. I’m just not sure how to do it
Thanks so much
What an organized dresser! I am sharing this on Pinterest
I just had my first baby in April and I bought this dresser and did all the stuff you did and I absolutely love it. Then I went to look for the dimensions online today and it looks like the stopped selling this dresser! SO SAD!
Where did you get all the stuff that is in his dresser? I see a lot of arrow stuff & that’s what I’m doing my daughter’s room in.
Anything in particular?
Hi I actually just bought the same hemnes with white stain! I was wondering if you noticed a strong smell coming from it and how Long it took for the smell to wear off. I have been airing the drawers for 2 weeks now to no avail! Have been waiting so Long and can’t wait to start Organising my baby stuff in it
Oh no! I didn’t have an issue with a smell emitting from our Hemnes, and I have a strong sense of smell. I’d suggest calling IKEA’s customer service.
Thank you so much for this post!! I used this for my sons dresser, same dresser and inserts, and I’m in love! Such a great easy way to organize 🙂
Yay! So glad it was helpful!
Hi- thank you for all of the wonderful information on the Hemnes dresser. Have you ever felt the dresser was too tall for diaper changing purposes? I am considering this and a few others, the other seem to be a few inches shorter. Thank you!
Thanks! I’ve never felt it was too tall for diaper changes. My son is now 2 and we still do diaper changes on top of the dresser. That being said, I am 5’10” and my husband is 6′ so we’re on the taller side. But my mom is 5’4″ and doesn’t have issues with the height.
I love how much storage this dresser gives and we’ve bought it for our nursery. But I’m having trouble deciding where to place it in the room. I thought we would want to stand at one end of the table for changing, but I see you have a trash bin at the end of the table instead. Do you find it comfortable changing the baby sideways? I have little experience changing babies so have no idea what works. Thanks!
Really impressed with your nursery dresser organization and hope if i could do the same.
This post convinced me to get this dresser for my baby girl! Even mentioned it in my nursery blog post. Thanks so much for the organization tips! Definitely a time saver.
This organization is so cute!! 🙂
Super cute! Great organization tips and inspiration for my nursery printable sets!
Love your organization. I notice there is a lot of confusion on the number of organizers used. You mentioned to buy 5 sets of 6. Can you please clarify further how many go in each drawer? I can’t tell from your pics….for example…drawer 2 = 1S 1M 1L. Would be so helpful, thanks!
I seriously CANNOT express enough how insanely helpful this post is for me!!! This was soo detailed! First time mom here! Due in 2 months! And I am going to have this up while I organize the dresser! I also clicked your registry.. Thank you soo much for that! There were so many things that I missed!! Seriously the biggest life saver for me!
Love this post and thank you for this! Ftm here and this is very helpful. By any chance, would you happen to know the dimensions of each drawer? I looked on IKEA’s website and they don’t go into specifics – would like to know when you get the chance.
have you attached the changing pad to the dresser? Does it slip? Where is your changing pad and covers from?
These Ikea drawer organizers are honestly life changing! They are so perfect for tiny baby clothes! I’m planning to use them to organize some of my drawers as well (socks, underwear). Thank you! 🙂
Thanks a bunch for sharing this with all folks you really understand what you’re speaking about! Bookmarked. Please also talk over with my web site =). We may have a link change arrangement between us!
I love all of these! This is exactly how we organized for babe. Now that he’s a toddler, his clothes are a little too big to roll. I now have to fold, but I still stand everything upright so it’s easy to access what you’re looking for. My only suggestion here would be to put your diapers in the opposite way – that way when you reach in you can see that you’re grabbing one diaper (from the butt end) rather than chancing pulling 1-3 out at once.
Thank you so much for this post!
Just ordered delivery of Hemnes and all the fillers!!! Thank you!
Only ten weeks to go!
