Raising a Baby in 300 Sq Ft

Raising a Baby in 300 Sq Ft

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.

Read more about how she, her husband, and Huck are making it work at Natalie's blog, Nat The Fat Rat, and at Babble.
