With parenthood, just like life in general, you can never be too prepared. Before the baby comes you need to make sure their closet is ready to go, as babies can go through outfit changes faster than Beyonce. Sometimes I would change my baby's outfits 3-5 times a day; it’s crazy.* I recommend getting everything locked and loaded well before their arrival.
When you are prepping clothes, you may have a mix of new items and hand-me-downs. It could seem overwhelming looking at a pile of different tiny items to de-tag, wash, fold and organize, but you can tackle this task in just a night if you take three easy steps:
Buy a good, non-toxic laundry detergent, like this.
Stock up with dresser organizers to go within the dresser (I got mine at Ikea, but you can also use shoe boxes).
Get hanger size separators and baby hangers (I made mine using size separators from a fabric store and a label maker).
