A hamper (also known as a laundry basket) is where you place dirty clothes that must be washed before using them again. These are a must for any household.
In fact, we recommend owning two to three per household to ensure that dirty clothes have a home and do not end up on the bed or floor. At Wayfair, we sell
hampers for kids and babies, so you can match your nursery or bedroom theme. A baby hamper for the nursery is essential since babies can go through a number
of outfits in one day, having a place for the outfits that need to be washed is helpful for staying organized.
There are a few important questions to think about before buying a baby or kids hamper. The first is where will you be transporting your new hamper? This
might affect the size of the hamper you choose as a large hamper can be heavy to transport. If you are taking it from the nursery to the basement that means
you will bring it up and down stairs. If you are bringing it to the laundry mat, you will be taking it out of the house, into your car, and carrying into the
laundry mat. If you are in the two circumstances above, lighter cloth baby hampers might be better for you. On the other hand, if you live in a smaller sized
home and will only be transporting your kids’ hamper from the bedroom to the room over then you might want a heavier plastic one. Another question to answer
is where will you place your kids’ hamper in their bedroom? Is the nursery tight space or open quarters? If the room is in a place where the hamper will be
seen by people, you might want to make sure you have a stylistic one! Lastly, you should consider the amount at which you will be doing laundry. The less
you do laundry the bigger baby hamper you should get in order to hold more clothes. This might be the case if you are heading to the laundromat to wash
clothes. If you plan to do laundry frequently, then you could get by with a smaller hamper.
Plastic Hampers: Plastic hampers are one option for your kids’ bedroom. They are affordable, long lasting, and easy to clean. They follow a more simplistic
design since they are often one color. No matter which plastic baby hamper you choose, the holes allow for extra ventilation for dirty clothes that might
be wet from sweat.
Cloth Hamper: Cloth hampers in your baby’s nursery or kids’ room can be extremely stylistic. These hampers can have a certain pattern stitched on that
portrays style and character. You can choose from 3 Sprouts hampers that have lions, goats, or ducks on them. There are also more famous childhood
characters such as Mickey Mouse, which makes for an awesome baby hamper if your child is a fan. Some cloth hampers can also be washed which makes
keeping them clean easy!
Wooden Hampers: A very stylistic option is a wood baby hamper. They fold open when in use and close when not in use. They portray a blend of style
and tradition. Similar to ones made of cloth, you can buy wood hampers with designs on them so you can get the baby hamper that matches your nursery today!
