Making a Nighttime Newborn Cart

Those middle-of-the-night wakings with your newborn aren't easy, but there are ways to make it easier on you!


Introducing...the nighttime newborn cart - aka your best friend!


In this blog I'll show you exactly what I had on our cart when my little one (who is now almost 3) was a newborn!




All you need to start is a basic 3-tier cart! I've linked some that I love here. I have the one from Target and it's been great!


On the top shelf, I included diapers, a pack of wipes, pacifiers, breast pads, my haakaa, and breastpump.

On the second shelf, I put extra sleepers and burp cloths. The last thing you want to do is go fishing around a drawer in the middle of the night trying to find another sleeper to change your little into or having to change your own shirt because of spit up. Putting them in a cute little basket like this just makes it all the more better, right!?





And on the bottom shelf I put extra diapers and wipes, because you can never have enough, and a basket with diaper cream, nipple cream, and lotion. The possibilities are endless! Go ahead and throw in some gripe water or whatever else you frequently use with your newborn.



The great thing about the nighttime newborn cart is that it is completely customizable to what you need. Every baby and mama is different, so during the first week with baby, you will learn what exactly you need and where on the cart it is most conveniently placed for you!

Another great thing to add on your cart is snacks! Yes, snacks. Especially if your baby is waking up very frequently, you may get hungry, and having a few non-perishable snacks on your cart keeps you from having to walk to the kitchen and keeps you full while your baby is filling up their tummy or just snuggling with mama!
