What is the best way to store items that I’d like to save them for child #2.

What is the best way to store items that 14 month old isn’t using (bottles, play gyms, swing, jumper, etc.); I’d like to save them for child #2.

Saving items for younger children can be fairly simple. The way I prefer to do it is by sorting items out chronologically based on when the next child will need it for the first time.

For example: Bottles will be needed at birth. Get jumbo clear bags large enough for the bottles to fit in and mark one bag “Birth”. Several companies make 2-gallon sized clear zip bags that would work great for this organizing project.

Sippy cups get used first when a child is about one year old, so mark that bag 12-months. Baby spoons are used when a child is about 3-4 months old, so mark a bag 3 months and toss them in. Then put all the 2-gallon bags into a larger box for storage.


Play gyms are much larger so may require one gigantic bin for storing all of the items with baby things on top (play mat, gym), then toddler toys (jumper, walker), then walker (stroller, sit-on-vehicles). You may need one box for each stage.

Big swings that stand up can be wrapped up in a Christmas tree bag or giant gift bag (they are made for big boxes and bicycles) and stored in an attic or basement. If you don’t have storage space for all of this, consider lending them to someone with a baby and getting them back when their baby grows out of them.

Also remember to check for recalls even when not in use.

    It sounds like you’re creating problems yourself by defining this as such a comprehensive, almost unknowable problem. Isn’t that self-defeating?

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
