    Default Do you bother ironing your baby's outfits?

    I have some baby outfits that seem like they require ironing but I honestly couldn't be bothered ie My DS has little t-shirts and button up shirts etc. Do you iron your baby's outfits?

    I iron some of DD's clothes because they do need it (cotton dresses etc) but I wait until I have the iron out to do my clothes.

    iron what's that!?
    I've ironed possibly 6 things in the past 4 years... and they were cotton shirts to wear to a wedding... other than that my iron is a weird looking shelf decoration that collects dust!

    No. Unless I am not in a rush and it is something that looks really bad, like a collar that won't sit down.

    For an event, like the girls wearing fancy dresses etc I iron them, as they don't sit properly if they are crinkled and you can really tell that they need an iron lol.

    I would never iron play clothes!

    I always ironed DD's cotton dresses and shirts. Strange, because I avoid ironing pretty much everything else.
