Babies don’t take up a lot of space. Their stuff doesn't have to either. 9 Baby Products for Small Spaces

Babies don’t take up a lot of space. When it comes to their stuff, though…that’s an entirely different story.

If you live in a small space, thrive on minimalism or simply don’t want baby gear to take over your home—we feel you. And all hope is not lost! With an eye on multipurpose, design-forward products and a little bit of creativity, getting everything you need for baby when real estate is at a premium is totally doable. And we’ve got the space-saving picks to prove it.

An All-in-One Sleep Solution

A nightlight, sound machine and time-to-rise clock are all key to establishing a comforting, healthy sleep environment for your little one—and the ingenious Hatch Rest+ combines all three of these products into one sleek, minimalist package. You can control the Rest+ either by touch or from your phone, and each feature is completely customizable to you and your little one’s changing needs. There’s even a battery backup and access to custom playlists, bedtime stories and more with a Hatch Sleep Membership.

A Space-Saving High Chair

Traditional high chairs can be big and bulky, two features you definitely want to avoid when space is at a premium. This clip-on seat hooks onto most tables or countertops, putting baby right at the center of mealtime action without compromising floor space.

A Play Gym That Grows with Baby

This design-forward play gym delivers on both form and function. The soft, muted palette and eco-friendly wood accents blend into almost any decor. And, it’s the only play gym you’ll need for the first year and beyond. From high contrast toys and silicone teething rings to a mirror and learning cards, the gym features tons of activities for a full year of play, and even converts into a play tent for older kiddos.

A Go-Anywhere Changing Pad

Say goodbye to traditional changing tables and hello to this practical, minimalist changing pad that eliminates the need for a separate changing table (the non-slip surface works with any dresser, table or even on the floor!). The pad’s waterproof surface wipes completely clean, meaning you won’t need to deal with separate changing pad covers. Here’s to more space and less laundry.

A Carrier for Day One to Year Four

Use this easy, comfortable carrier right from day one—no infant insert needed—then well into the toddler years. The Omni features four carry positions, a detachable zippered pouch, lumbar support and crossable padded shoulder straps for enhanced comfort and fit.

A Tub That Stores Flat

This sink insert is an awesome option for families that travel frequently or live in small spaces. The Puj conforms to most sinks, comfortably cradling baby when it’s time for a bath. And it hangs flat when not in use, so it won’t take up any precious bathroom real estate.

A Car Seat + Stroller Combo

This innovative piece of baby gear obsessed over by space-saving parents everywhere, especially city dwellers and folks who rely heavily on public transportation, the Doona is a car seat and stroller all rolled into one. No more wrestling with clipping your seat in and out of your stroller, transferring your sleeping baby or dealing finding the space to store two large pieces of gear, this car seat/stroller hybrid is the perfect solution for efficient, small-space living.

A Crib That Fits in a Closet

Specifically designed for urban and small-space living, this mini crib has a small profile but still packs a big punch. The all-wood Origami is durable, beautiful and features locking casters on the feet, allowing it to roll from room to room. It even folds for storage and transportation. And you’ll want a mattress that is specically designed to fit a mini crib, like this one from Naturepedic.

A 5-in-1 Cover

Why use this cover only one way when you can use it five? This one piece of soft, stretchy fabric can be used as a nursing cover, car seat cover, shopping cart cover, high chair cover or infinity scarf. Your biggest problem? Trying to decide which gorgeous pattern to choose.
