How to Organize Baby Bath Stuff – To Make Bathtime Easier

Bathtime has become my daughter’s favorite time of the day. She loves to splash around and get me all wet! On the nights that I have to give her a bath on my own, I’m often scrambling around to find everything. Knowing how to organize my baby’s bath stuff has made things so much easier.

For most, giving their baby a bath is part of their nighttime routine. You eat dinner, play as a family, read some stories, then head to the tub. As this becomes a routine, you’ll realize that you are using the same products and items over and over again. Because of this, it can be so easy for things to get unorganized quickly! 

It’s really important that you know how to organize baby bath stuff so that you can make the actual bathing part of the bath quick and efficient! That way, you will allow your baby more time to enjoy and play! 

Today, I’m going to be sharing how to best organize baby bath stuff in a way that is efficient and, simply, just makes sense! 

Towels + Washcloths Organization

Towels and washcloths are used at every bath time. Because they’re for baby, they’re smaller than your regular towels, and they need a designated place!

Storage Tips

Whether you have a linen closet, space below your sink in your vanity, or another place to store your towels, you’ll need some form of storage to keep your baby towels and washcloths in one place. They’re smaller, and they’re used often, so you need somewhere handy for them to go! 

With me, I’ve found that putting them in fabric storage bins can really spruce up a linen closet and keep things together! 

Depending on the size of the fabric bins that you will use, you may want to add a divider to keep the towels and washcloths separate! As you’ll see in my tutorial, I did a quick DIY where you take a piece of cardboard, place it in the center of the bin, and secure it with tape. It is literally that simple! 

Folding Tips

Once you have your storage for your baby’s linens, you may be interested in how to store them more efficiently! Folding your linens not only creates more storage space, but it also makes everything look nice and neat! 

How to Fold Towels

My daughter, she has those adorable baby towels with decorative hoods. They’re not a typical towel shape, so I usually fold it in half longways, then half it again. Once it’s nice and skinny, I’ll half it in a way to make the towel shorter and roll it from there, making sure the decorative hood is facing up. 

How to Fold Wash Cloths

As for the washcloths, you could probably get away with simply tossing them into the storage bin, but if you’re anything like me, you want a little more structure and organization! So, I like to fold it in half and roll it up. It’s the little details that can really make a difference! 

Lotions + Soaps Organization

When you want to organize baby bath stuff, a big part is figuring out what to do with all of the soaps and lotions your baby will need! For me, I like to keep things simple and uniform! 

Similar to storing the linens, I like to use a matching cloth storage bin for lotions and soaps! If you want, you could use a divider, but you may find that you don’t really need one! My biggest suggestion is that you find a bin that is deep enough so that when it is stored, none of the lotion bottles or containers stick out.

Bath Toys Organization

Bath time is a great time for play! From an imaginary ocean with a boat sailing across the seven seas to bathtub crayons that wash off, there are so many fun things that your child can do while also getting clean! But, if you’re not careful, toys can completely take over your bathtub! 

My biggest advice on how to organize baby bath stuff is to get an organizer that will suction to your bathtub. For my family, we’ll be using one of those mesh toy organizers that sits up in the corner, but there are so many varieties available to choose from. No matter what you choose, it makes a world of a difference to have all of your toys out of the tub and into an organizer at the end of each bath time! 

In Conclusion…

There are lots of things that you will use when your baby is taking a bath, but towels, toys, and soaps, and lotions are some of the biggest items that take up the most space! Yes, you may find it easier to leave out all the soaps on the side of the tub, but if you’re wanting to freshen up your space and make it look a little more polished, you could try some of these simple techniques!
