Should I hang onesies? Should I fold onesies? What do I do with all the onesies? These are common questions for any nesting mama-to-be.
It may sound like such a basic question to even write about, but chances are you’re reading this because you’d like to find the perfect way to organize baby clothes.
With that said, let’s tackle onesies first. You’ll be going through a ton of them in the near future, so organizing and storing them efficiently will make things easier for you!
You should fold most of your baby’s onesies and hang the onesies that go with an outfit or the ones you’d like to save for a special occasion.
Let’s dig into the details a bit more.
You’ll go through multiple onesies a day.
Spit up and blow outs will be a common occurrence in the first few months of baby’s life, which means you’ll be changing your little one’s clothes multiple times a day.
This also means you’ll be washing a lot of onesies throughout the week.
Since your baby will most likely be wearing more onesies than anything else, organizing and storing them in the most practical manner would be the most helpful.
For this reason alone, folding and storing most of your onesies in a dresser drawer is the most practical choice. Here’s why.

#1 You’ll want to store onesies close to where you’ll be changing baby.
Since babies go through multiple onesies a day, it’s a great idea to keep them close to your changing station.
I fold and store onesies in the top drawer of my changing station (which is a dresser).
You could also fold onesies and store some of them in a basket or bin near your changing station. I like to keep a basket full of onesies both in the nursery and our living area for easy access.
#2 Folding onesies saves space.
Folding clothes neatly and using drawer divider saves space, especially if you are file folding or rolling them.
I prefer file folding them into drawer dividers, because it keeps them organized. You’ll also have a birdseye view of them when baby needs a change.
#3 Hanging onesies takes too much time.
You’ll go through a lot of laundry in the first few months of your baby’s life.
Folding each individual onesie would take a ton of time that most parents don’t have.
Simply folding the onesies and popping them in a drawer or basket will save you loads of precious time.
Consider hanging some onesies.
I really like hanging outfits together, because it’s easy to lose track of the cute matching sets down the road. So, I always hang onesies with their matching outfit.
Additionally, I like to hang onesies that I want to save for a special occasion or ones that would make for a cute photo. This way they won’t get lost in the mix of my rotating system of onesies. Between spit ups and blow outs, most of my baby onesies ended up with stains, so this is a helpful way to keep them nice looking.
There you have it! What do you think? Should I hang onesies? Should I fold them? What is your baby clothes organization system?
