Small Space Minimalist Nursery for the Solo Mom

 Single motherhood means only one salary. You may be crunched for space and funds when it comes to designing your nursery. I'm all about a minimalist approach if you are short on space. Look for baby products that are collapsable and have multiple purposes. Less stuff will make your life easier and give you more time to relax at the end of those long hard infant days.

Tip: If your working with a small space, choose even-toned room colors to make it look spacious and cozy. Floor to ceiling curtains can also make a room look larger. 



  1. Small olive green dresser - that doubles as a changing table. I like this one because its just under 3 feet long so it'll fit in a cozy space and add a pop of color to any nursery. 
  2. Keekaroo peanut changer - I've been eyeing this dresser top changer for my nursery because it makes cleanups easy which is a must when you are doing it alone plus it has a strap for added safety. No time wasted washing and drying changing pads is a win in my book.
  3. Foldable wooden play gym - It folds up for easy storage, coordinates with most nurserys, and can be used in multiple ways. You can also easily add it to cribs or over a dockatot.
  4. Crib canopy - This is cute to define a sleeping space if you plan to room share with your infant. 
  5. Portable folding crib - It's just over 3 feet long, trendy, and folds up easily for storage when your baby outgrows it. A bonus that it comes with wheels so you can easily move it around on your own. Comes in a variety of colors as well.
