I know I would like a hamper in the nursery, but I'm having trouble deciding what to get. I see a lot of nursery hampers that are wooden frames with fabric over them. Are these hampers practical or just cute? They definitely have some adorable designs on them, but I wonder if there are any features that are useful in a hamper that these do not have. I'm thinking it'd be nice to be able to grab the whole hamper and haul it off to the laundry room. I fear I would pinch my fingers in the wooden frame, though. Something like a basket might be easy to turn over straight into the washing machine, but I think you might have to fish each item out of the wood frame hampers?

I'm not a fan of hampers in the bedroom (especially kids rooms, cause of the yuck stuff babies get on their clothes, and there is a smell)... BUT if you want one in the babies room, I agree with you on wanting one that I could take into the laundry room and dump. What I've been thinking of doing is using one of those generic tall hampers and making a "cover/bag"

Sewing a simple "bag" for it, like a trash bag would go in a trash can, with cute fabric and use elastic around the top... make it a little tall so it comes about 1/3 of the way down the outside so it look decorative (kinda the same concept as the baskets on the changing table in the "Pics of our nursery & DS's big boy room... " post but for a laundry hamper)....

Maybe you could find a linen laundry bag and use that the same way if you aren't a sewer (sp??)

Well, I believe most the nursery-matching fabric ones on wooden frames come with an interior laundry bag netting. At least my DD's did. I just pull the laundry bag out of the wooden frame and hall it to the laundry room.

However, I'm still more of a fan of a regular plastic hamper. So, for DS's nursery, I just got one in a color that matches his nursery.

I prefer carrying the plastic container versus the laundry bag netting.
And, yes, I was always afraid that some of the stinkier stuff would seep into the fabric of the other hamper. In 2.5 years, I have not had that problem, but I think it's mostly luck. Plus, the clothes are all caught by the laundry bag net inside.

We have this hamper that matches his nursery..
NoJo Jungle Babies Clothes Hamper - Crown Craft - Babies "R" Us

And I love it. It has netting on the inside that you can wash. You can actually take it off the wooden stand and wash the whole thing. I just grab his laundry out and carry it to the laundry room, but if I wanted I could take the whole thing.

huge thanks to Jaidynsmum for my lovely siggy!
