Storage considerations when expecting a new baby

2 Min Read

Whether it is your first child or your third, nothing prepares you for the enormous life adjustment that a new baby has on the entire family. Along with the tiredness, stress and constant attention comes the strain of creating enough space to make your home liveable now that you have a new addition.

It is understandable that you may wish to save all of the clothing and furniture from your older child which has been outgrown; however, keeping them in your home while waiting for your newborn to grow is not always a practical solution!

With FlexiSpace, hiring a storage facility is guaranteed to be much cheaper than buying new furniture and a whole new wardrobe for your baby, and may be your best option for the long term.

Not only do you need to think of clearing out old clothes and furniture, but also the items within your home which may be a hazard to your baby. For instance, do you have any furniture pieces with sharp edges or which are fragile or unstable when knocked?

It may be a good idea to store these pieces away until your baby understands dangers and what not to touch. This will also allow you to have a bit more space to play with your little one.

When considering storing your furniture, think about the items you use daily and those that you don’t. Although you may not want to dispose of these pieces altogether, storage units give you the freedom to bring them back into your home whenever you choose. Likewise, with appliances, have a think about those you use on a regular basis. It is unlikely you will be using the beer fridge or popcorn machine much nowadays, so make a bit of space and store them for a while.
