At our old church, in the nursery, we kept the exer-saucer, and the bouncy seat for littles, inside a super-yard thing, to keep the older tots away from the smallest ones. http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2266978&fromWidget=TRU%3ACategory%3ATop+Sellers If you use just 4 panels, it makes a little square that quite nicely protects a little occupant from the tots & dogs & such!
Ooooh, thanks for the hot tip. I think something like that could work really well. We actually do have a gate that is DS proof to the living room, but it would be nice to be able to put the baby in ANY room, yk? I'm just thinking for if I ever feel like taking a shower before 6PM . I know, I know, but a mama can dream, right?
So we don't have a baby's room. Our house is only two bedrooms, and we pretty much play musical beds anyhow. We've got a queen sized bed in one room, and a king sized bed in our "main" bedroom. We'll have a pack'n'play in the room with the queen, and then DH put in the mount for the Kanoe in the main bedroom. But nothing worth taking pictures of...
As for the changing area, DS is still in diapers. So this area will do duty for DS and new bebe. You can see the big trash bin to the left (for cloth), and then the smaller little trashcan on top (for wipes and nighttime 'sposies). The stack of prefolds under the basket is what I couldn't fit in the dresser. I want to get a shelf at Ikea to put above that I can stack a bunch of folded prefolds on. DS's diapers take up 3 of the drawers in the dresser... I will have so much space once he potty learns. But as of now he's got all his BG's, and plus all the standard prefolds and doublers and such. They just take up so much space!
Here is little miss bebe's diaper drawer. Covers, preemie and infant prefolds, and some AIOs:
I only put the NB/0-3 stuff in the drawers, and then I separated any 3-6 month stuff into a bin that's stored in one of the closets. This way when she starts to outgrow stuff, I can just switch everything out. But this drawer is sleepers and onesies:
And then this drawer is pants and shirts/dresses:
