So your oldest child is no longer a baby, so what are you supposed to do with all of the baby gear that you have? Most people choose to save the baby items so that they can use them for a future baby. Even if you are not planning on having any future children, you may have friends that want to use the baby items someday. Baby items are very expensive, so it is worthwhile for you to hang onto the items for the future. Unfortunately, many homes do not have the space needed to store all of the large baby items when they are not being used anymore. If this sounds like a situation that you are dealing with, you may want to consider storing all of the large baby items in a storage unit.
A storage unit is a great option for storing your large baby items because all of the items will stay safe until you need them again. Plus, you do not have to take up valuable space in your own garage to store all of the baby items.
There are many baby items that you may want to consider storing in a storage unit. One of the biggest items that you need to store is the baby crib. Baby cribs have a lot of components, including the crib mattress. When you are storing these items, you should make sure to put the mattress in a mattress bag. That way, it will be safe from any bugs that may be in the storage unit. It is also a good idea to wrap the frame of the crib in furniture wrap to help protect it from getting scratched. When packing up the crib, you should also wrap all of the screws up with the crib so that you can easily find them when you need them. You should do the same thing with the dresser and changing table. If you keep all of the components for each piece together, you will have a much easier time using them in the future.
Many babies also use swings and walkers that can take up a lot of space. These items often include fabric components, so you should make sure to wrap these items up in plastic as well. Since you do not know how long the items are going to be in storage, you want to make sure that they will still be in great condition when you need them again.
