    Is this best to do before LO arrives? I know I wear new clothes before I've washed then but thinking baby might be different? X

    I've washed everything, newborn skin is very sensitive. Don't use softener and use non bio powder. I use an ecoegg as it's chemical free. X

    Up to you I guess, I was advised not to, and it affects absorbency so muslins, reusable wipes, nappies etc shouldn't be washed in it.
    I'm almost about keeping things 'natural' esp for baby's skin. I know some people love the smells of softener, just use the sensitive one if you do use it (i would advise) xx

    I washed all our baby stuff before she arrived....loved folding it all up in the drawers :) but I soon stopped washing everything before she wore it when the baby presents kept piling in lol or I would have never kept up! X
