Hmmmm… I’ve been wondering about this too.  We have tons of hand me downs and I have been sorting and trying to figure out a system.  Right now we can fit the 0-3 in the dresser and everything else is in a pile. 🙁

Okay… disclaimer: I am crazy and my daughter has WAY too many clothes.

I organized her drawers by type and size. She has an 8 drawer dresser, so 4-6 of the drawers are always her current size, tops in one drawer, onesies in one, pants in one, etc. Her socks and tights have a bin of their own, as do her headbands. The remaining drawers have the next size up in them. In the closet, we have a hanging organizer which holds small blankets, bibs, burp cloths, etc. I hang things in her closet by size. As for what I hang vs what I fold, I hang outfits of nicer brands, jackets, dresses and things like that. I always hang a few outfits so that DH can grab one without having to match something. lol. Her shoes live in a jewelry organizer that hangs in her closet. Her bows live on an organizer I made out of an old frame. 

I pack away/sell/donate her clothes as she outgrows them, so that it gets done a little at a time instead of having to do a bunch at once.

I put them in drawers by size. The 1st drawer was originally newborn, 2nd drawer 3-month, 3rd drawer 6-month, and so on. As baby has outgrown stuff, it goes in a box and gets labeled with the size, and everything gets moved up a drawer so the 1st drawer is always his current size. A couple drawers are dedicated for things like socks/legwarmers, bibs, hats, baby towels, and other odd-ball stuff.

I have almost no clothes in the closet. (I have a boy though, and I dress him mostly in onesies or sleep-n-plays. I can see that cute little dresses for girls may need to be hung up.)

@zippylef:  What kind of hanging organizer do you have in the closet?

With smaller clothes PJs and onesies I kept those all in drawers organized by size, I only hung a few dresses here and there. I didn’t really use her closet until she was older and wearing two piece outfits (like shirt and pants seperate) and dresses more often. Now (18months) I have shirts and dresses in the closet.. PJs, play cotton pants in one drawer and jeans in another.

good luck and congrats! 🙂

x.x  ho my gawd, it’s damn near impossible to organize baby clothes.  My little girl will fit in 0-3 month old clothes, and 3-6 month olds clothes….and she’s 4 month’s old.  I’ve dedicated the first two shelves in her dresser for clothes I think will fit and hung clothing in different stages….but it’s freakin impossible for me.  She grows so fast what she fits in one week will be too small the next.

I suggest using the closet size divider thingies. I have all of her clothes organized by sixe (newborn, 0-3months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months, 9-12 months, 12-24 months, and 2T). I have a dresser for her too, that I am going to use for hats, socks, bibs, onesies, pjs, blankets, and misc.
