How to make a cute nursery in your bedroom

I am having my first baby while living in an apartment. We don’t have the space to have a separate nursery so I created this little wall to showcase a space for my new baby. Here is how to make the most of your small space!

The bed: Pack n Play

Use a pack n play for the baby bed. Not only can you use one with a bassinet and changing table on top, but you can use it for years as your baby grows! I got this one on Amazon and love it! (HOT TIP: Add items to your baby registry so that you can get the discount from Amazon later!)

Organization of changing station supplies

I bought this great over-the-door organizer on Amazon for holding diapers, wipes, baby wraps, bathroom items, maybe some swaddles and such. Anything I may need in the middle of the night when I get up to change the baby. I have a bin on my nightstand for breastfeeding items and such which I will discuss in the next paragraph.

ORGANIZATION OF Clothing and supplies

I have some shelves in my dining room/kitchen that I put plastic shoebox tubs on. These tubs are labeled with the clothing size or supply name. When clothes are outgrown I will rotate the tubs. I use them for bottles, swaddles, burp cloths etc. as well.

I created some printable labels (seen below) available for sale here: SHOP

These labels include a link to the Canva template so you can customize them!

Nursery Art

You can spruce up a small space with printable nursery art, small pieces from the store, or by creating your own. I made my own and taped it to the wall. I didn’t want anything too heavy. I also painted a letter “E” I got from a craft store. I used glow in the dark paint on the stars. I found a cute metal hot air balloon that I painted as well.

Breast Feeding Station

On my nightstand I have an acrylic divided basket where I keep medicine, breast pads, water, snacks, a bottle warmer and pump supplies. This way everything is ready to go at 3 am feedings! I actually got it from when JCPenny went out of business, but you can use anything to create an organized breastfeeding station, including a 3-tier cart if you have the space.

As you can see, it is possible to have a cute nursery space even if you don’t have a nursery!
