Will you be hanging up most of babys clothes/sleepers etc or will you have them in a dresser?

We are not doing a nursery as our extra room is upstairs so LO will be in our room which is downstairs but I dont have the extra space to hang up his clothes unless I put them upstairs and that just seems out of the way. Looking over all the cute sleepers and outfits, I would prefer to hang them up but I just dont think I have the room for it...unless I move my clothes upstairs but either way its not as convenient as I would like.

Thank you Jaidynsmum

Most of her clothes are going in the dresser. All the sleepers, playsuits, onesies, pants, shorts, things like that.
The only thing I'm hanging up are her dresses, pants or short sets, jackets, etc.

I personally would be hanging the things you wont be using everyday but only the nicer clothes up and then putting the everyday stuff in a dresser where its more accessible.

I'm hanging them but it the opposite situation for me. No room for dresser but lots of room in my closet. I am SO not into clothes and dh has more than me by far. I'm hanging what I can and bought hanging cubby/organizers for the rest. Maybe just hang them upstairs so you can see them now and as you use them, put them in drawers Can you get a cheapo armoire with a hanging space in your room? That's what I did with Pascale.

we don't have room in the closet or dresser for this one's clothes. I had to just get one of those rubbermaid plastic containers with 3 drawers to fold her onesies, sleepers and pants/shirt outfits. I can hang her church dresses and coat with her sister and brothers things in their closet, but other than that...there is not space.

We have a nice, big closet in her room, so almost everything will be hung up. I do have some baskets that I put things like socks and onesies in, though.

I'll be hanging most things b/c my nursery is very small (ill use the dresser for diapers and things I need to have within arms reach). I might keep pajamas in the dresser.

My brother just made this DIY clothes rack for her that I can use in the hallway closet so I can put most of her day clothes on that.

I'm hanging all of her clothes except plain onesies and pants... I have a dresser type thing, but I'm also using it for diaper supplies and linen storage. I could only fit her clothes up to 6 months though!

No closet room here, but we have a dresser that DH's grandpa built when DH was born, so we're using that.

We are hanging everything up for right now but as he wears them and they are washed they'll be put in the dresser. It's just easier that way, IMO.

I have a combo - because like Mary, my LO will be in my bedroom for a long while. This is what happens when your master is on the main floor, while the other bedrooms are upstairs.

Consequently, both DD's clothes and the baby's clothes are in MY walk-in closet, as pretty much everyone "gets ready" in my room in the morning. Don't get me wrong...I'm thrilled to have a walk-in closet, but it's already packed with my stuff, and now it's packed with kiddo clothes too.

So I have 2 rubbermade drawer systems below the lowest hanging rack, of which 2 drawers are dedicated to BW2 (1 for newborn sleepers/onesies and the other for 0-3 month sleepers/onesies) and 4 drawers are dedicated to DD's pants, microscopic underwear, socks, etc. I also have 2 larger drawers on top of the hanging rack which are currently holding BW2's socks/bibs/shoes/hats and receiving blankets/swaddlers. All of the "outfits" are hanging up for both DD & BW2.

Sadly...it's packed in...and would you believe that the only thing I have hanging in my closet right now are maternity clothes? Clearly, I have a problem.

there is a really neat closet organizer for a nursery at walmart that I plan on using. i am using his dresser for the outfits he will wear most and the closet for everything else that he won't fit in after the first few months and his "nice" clothes/jackets.

I haven't even started on his room though, so that is bound to change.
