How to Store Used Baby Items Properly For Next Baby

You’ve finally gotten through pregnancy and gave birth to your baby. And you’re probably thinking, what am I going to do with all these baby items? Should I keep them or should I get rid of them? Do I need to store them? How should I store them? If you’re second-guessing your storage methods, don’t worry, here are some tips on how to store used baby items properly for the next baby.

Outdoor Shed

An outside storage shed is a great investment when storing baby items. It’s weatherproof, so your belongings will stay dry and protected from the elements. Plus, it’s typically more affordable than renting a storage unit. And if you have the space, you can store a lot more in Keter sheds than you can in your home. 

Here are some tips for storing your used baby items in a shed:

  • Invest in some good storage containers. Look for ones that are durable and stackable.
  • Label everything! This will save you a lot of time and frustration when you’re trying to find something specific.
  • Organize by category. Put all the clothes together, all the toys together, etc. 
  • To make sure things don’t get lost, put each item into its own bin or bag before putting them into the container.
  • Buy plenty of plastic bins with lids for storing larger items like stuffed animals or cribs.
  • When it comes to baby decor such as Baby nursery rugs from, pillows, or plush toys, it’s best to wrap them up in stretch wrap individually and then stored in a bin to keep them in their best condition.

Storage Bins

You need to make sure you have the right storage bins for your baby items. You want something that is big enough to fit everything, but not too big that it takes up too much space. You also want something that is airtight and waterproof. Look for something with a lid that snaps on tight so you can keep dust and pests out. When storing blankets, make sure they are folded neatly and put in large plastic bags first. Then stack them upright in the bin or container. Stackable storage bins are a great choice, especially if you’re wanting to save space. It also helps if these containers are clear so that it is easier to see what is in the bin.

Closet Space

One of the best ways to keep your used baby items organized is by storing them in a spare closet. This way, you can easily see what you have and where it is. Plus, it keeps everything tidy and out of the way. Here are a few tips for storing your used baby items in your closet. Every time you get something new (or finish using something), try to find a place for it right away so that there’s no unnecessary clutter. As soon as you wash clothes or sheets, store them immediately so they don’t become wrinkled or dirty while they’re waiting. When putting things back into the closet, put like with like — matching outfits together, newborn clothes together etc. And when possible, hang up clothes on hangers instead of folding them because this will save space in any dresser drawer and make getting dressed much easier!


You want to be sure to store your used baby items in a cool, dry place. A garage is a great option, as long as you have the space. Be sure to put them in plastic containers with tight lids to keep them clean and dust-free. If you live in an area that’s humid, a garage might not be the best place to store things. If moisture can easily seep through containers, you’ll want to stay away from storing any baby items in your garage since standing moisture can cause mold. 

Storage Unit

A storage unit is a great place to keep your used baby items until you’re ready to use them again. Here are some tips for storing your items properly:

  • Choose a climate-controlled unit if possible. This will help protect your items from temperature extremes and humidity.
  • If you can’t find a climate-controlled unit, try to find one that’s at least partially sheltered from the elements.
  • Wrap delicate items in acid-free tissue paper or bubble wrap before packing them away.
  • Use clear plastic storage bins so you can easily see what’s inside.
  • Label everything clearly, including the contents of each bin and the expiration date of any food or formula.

If you’re short on storage space, consider using an under-the-bed storage container for larger items like a pack and play or bouncer. Make sure to label everything so you know what’s what when you go to pull it out for baby number two! And don’t forget to wash everything before you put it away – no one wants to use a dirty bib!
