We have a big space in our hearts for tiny spaces. And when it comes to adding babies to those tiny spaces, we wholeheartedly know it can work, even in a 300 square foot NYC apartment. Have doubts? Read on.
If you are feeling the pinch of not enough square footage, take a look at Natalie Holbrook's blog and suddenly you'll realize your home isn't as small as you thought. She and her husband are raising their new baby boy, Huck, in a 300 square foot Manhattan apartment. Without an extra inch to spare, Natalie has carved out a space for her baby (in the closet!) and blogs about the various choices she has made from cribs (a Bloom Alma) to strollers (so vital to life as a parent in NYC) to the things she does without (a changing table). And while there is no place to dump a spread of toys on the floor for play dates, she does have "Mary Poppins view of rooftops" and Central Park just down the block.
