Preparing a nursery for your child must be the happiest moment in life. The joy from decorating the room with the cutest items is priceless. However, that joy will turn to despair when you need to pack your nursery for relocation. The nursery is often the most overstuffed room in the home, with countless toys, baby clothes, storybooks, and etc. The sheer number of nursery items already sounds intimidating, not to mention the size of green moving supplies you will need. Additionally, moving with a child, especially with a baby, is more difficult than a regular move. In this type of move, the hardest part is packing. However, with good organization and preparation, you will pack your nursery in no time. 

Get your supplies on time when you need to pack your nursery for relocation 

Every parent goes through the newborn checklist when preparing a nursery for the first time.

When you have a baby, it’s very important to keep everything clean that comes in contact with your baby. To keep items clean during the move, you should line moving storage bins with paper or plastic wrap. With this method of packing, your items will have extra protection from dust and dirt. After you put items in boxes, you should cover them with another extra layer for protection.

You can task your older children to pack toys or school supplies. If you have a baby, every help is more than welcome. The best help you can get is from the moving company itself.
