    I'm started preparing my labour bag and wonder if I should wash all babies clothes before packing?

    I was told this... but... not sure it matters all that much with packaged babygros, like the packets of 4 or 6 you can buy etc.

    I washed all the smallest sizes (newborn) and took tags off a couple of weeks ago. All the 0-3 months still has tags on and isn't washed yet. I don't want to get too hasty in case anything needs exchanging. There's still the chance she could be a boy after all!

    I've not washed anything packaged- tempted to because then they smell and feel nicer but something stops me (not laziness! honest!) think it just makes it feel a bit too close and real- I'll continue enjoying my denial for a bit longer and have a little kip instead I think.

    I've washed everything (well most things, as there are still a few bits and bobs I need to sort out).. all the items I've knitted need washing as the cats sometimes chew and play with the wool.. also its handled a lot in the knitting process

    Also Spain has a silly 15 day return policy... if you don't return an item in 15 days you can't return it full stop sooooo anything I brought way back when, can't go back now anyway... All the other clothes were Tia's and well needed washing after 8 years in storage...

    anything that came from the UK... how would I take it back? :think: Its going to take me 6 months to get a passport for the baby :roll:

    Personally, even in factories, people don't wash their hands after using the toilet and then these clothes get packaged up etc... nah... I just wanted my stuff clean... also it means your baby's skin gets used to your cleaning products straight away. Some factory standard cleaning products can be quite harsh.

    I washed all bams stuff, new or given.

    Especially the new stuff... if you think of the colouring proces, the chemicals/dyes involved.... i didnt wanna risk her lil newborn delicate skin....
