Baby Organization Ideas don’t stop in the nursery, because you’ll be spending a ton of time all around the house with your new bundle of joy.
Chances are you’ll be spending a ton of time in the living room, so I recommend having a few baby stations handy in reach!
Diaper Changing Station
I always keep a diaper changing station in my living room.
I preferred using a small basket to store wipes, diapers, diaper rash cream and a small baby blanket to change baby on. You can also use a diaper caddy to keep everything super organized.
I’ve also seen people use rolling carts in the living area to create diaper changing stations, which is a great idea too.
Change of Clothes
I’m not sure how much of an actual “station” this is, but I highly recommend keeping a few onesies and baby pants in your living area as well.
Newborns tend to have blowouts and spit up quite often, so your little one will probably go through a couple outfits a day.

Whether you’re breastfeeding, bottle feeding or both – you’ll want to setup a station with all your essentials in the living room.
You’ll want to create either a basket full of supplies or even a rolling cart loaded with essentials like burp cloths, nipple cream, boppy pillow, extra bottles of water and things like that. Of course, you’ll tailor it to whether or not you’re breastfeeding.
Hanging Out Station
You’ll want to create a little corner of your living space for the baby to just hang out and learn about their environment.
This can include a large baby blanket or activity mat for tummy time, a pack and play to take afternoon snoozes in, or a baby swing to soothe a crying baby when all else fails.
