It’s inevitable that with big life changing events comes clutter, and it’s no different when welcoming a new baby to the home. Your whole world is probably turned upside down, and you can’t help but find yourself living amongst new baby toys, bottles, nappies, and little tiny clothes (aww!).

While this time is super exciting for you and your family, it can also be a hectic period, so what better time to declutter and get rid of mess? You know what they say; clear space, clear mind.

With a new baby, you will probably feel like you’ve already stored away your hobbies, freedom, any money you had, your sense of humanity, your fear of what’s hiding in the nappy, and all concept of time. You could take all that out of your unit and take back your sanity- replacing it with all the mess around your home.

This is where the superhero that is storage units come in.

Put the Kettle On!

When word gets around that the stork has brought a little one, you’ll have visitors ‘ooing’ and ‘ahhing’ everywhere. A Facebook post isn’t enough. You’ll have endless knocks at your door, cameras flashing in the babies face and probably a few brews to make whilst they are visiting.

While your friends and family aren’t expecting the perfect show home, it’s not ideal for them to tip-toe around your home, hopping, skipping, and jumping over mess. Baby brain is a good excuse for mess, but there’s a certain point where a storage unit is a must-have!

5 Minutes of Baby-Free Bliss

Your most valuable part of the day may be that quality time with your buddle of joy. It may also be the moment they fall asleep and you get the rest of the night (or even a couple of hours) to sit back and relax. (That’s okay- you’re not the only one!) So, of course you want the space to be clear of mess, nice and tidy and a little slice of child-free heaven.  A bottle has been chilling in the fridge all day, waiting for you! You deserve it!

They Grow Up So Quickly…

There’s no doubt about it- kids seem to shoot up if you look away for one second. First their shoes are little tiny baby boots, then they are wearing builder’s boots and are off at 6am on the job. But where do you put all that stuff they grow out of? A storage unit; staying safe and sound until the next baby is born (or until you sell it- ones enough, right?)

Not only is it clothes they grow out of- we’re talking car seats, beds, bicycles. Absolutely everything!

Baby Bulk = Great Idea

Yes, you now have a bundle of joy (amongst other things), but with this new life comes things you need to buy. Clothes, nappies, car seats- the list goes on. Can you think of anything worse than being woken up in the middle of the night by a crying baby, an unpleasant nappy, and no new nappies?

Many parents opt to buy in bulk just in case. But if you have a small living space- a room of bulk nappies which doubles as a bathroom isn’t quite what you want.

Working 9-5

Do you work from home? Got an office full of paperwork, valuable documentation and much more? We are sorry to say this, but what was previously the perfect place to work, could now be turned into the opposite. Why not use a storage unit as office space and keep your important work documents away from the baby bedlam?

The same goes for anything which is of any value- financially or sentimental. When your baby begins to walk, and things begin to go missing at the same time; this is not a coincidence!
