The Complete Baby Nursery Storage Checklist

You are here: Home ~ Baby Checklists ~Nursery Storage Checklist



Make Sure You Have All The Nursery Storage Space You Need Before Baby Comes Home

This nursery storage checklist has been prepared using the Creative Baby Nursery Rooms Layette List as a starting point.

Each item on the layette list has been allocated a space in the part of your home that will be most convenient. For instance, bottles will be stored in the kitchen as that's where they will be prepared; breast pads will be in your closet as that is where you will be getting dressed etc.

After this you will find a summary for each section of your home so that you know exactly how much storage space you will need in each of the following areas:
