They may be tiny and cute, but folding your baby’s clothes is no simple task. And as tempting as it is to shove them into a drawer when you’re carrying out the mundane task of putting the washing away, folding and organising your baby’s clothes neatly will save you a lot of time (and creases) when it comes to getting them ready for the day.
As for the perfect folding technique, there’s only one person who knows how to satisfyingly fold clothes to perfection, and that’s Marie Kondo.
The KonMari method of folding applies to all kinds of baby clothes, whether it’s baby grows, vests or leggings. Although there are numerous ways to neatly fold away these items, as long as you are left with a neat and compact square at the end, you're doing it right!
Lay the baby grow on its front. Fold the sleeves in so they lay on the back of the bodysuit, creating straight lines either side of the baby grow. Fold it in half, bringing the bottom of the bodysuit up to the top, leaving a small gap, then fold again (depending on how long the baby grow is to create a square.
Vests and tops
Lay the vest on its front, then fold the sleeves in so they lay on the back of the shirt. Fold the bottom of the shirt to the middle of the back. Bring the bottom of the folded portion to the top of the vest.
