    Default Question about washing clothes for new baby

    Ok this is probably a stupid question, but how soon is too soon to wash clothes for a new baby? #2 is due in about 12 weeks time and I have pulled out all of DDs baby clothes that I want to re-use (or at least prepare, if it's a boy I'll have some shopping to do!).

    Is it too early to wash it all? Should I wait until closer to the due date? It'll be stored in the wardrobe once washed.

    I'd just wash them so it's a job out of the way. All the best for the final few weeks 😊

    I'd do them now, get them all ready for bub! One less thing to worry about later.

    I would do them now too, especially with winter coming up and them taking longer to dry with winter weather (not sure where you live)...

    I washed them as we got them over the course of the pregnancy. It never occurred to me that it may be too soon.

    Best of luck for 12 or so weeks time. : )

    Thanks everyone! I think I'll start washing them now so I can get the wardrobe organised and see exactly what I have. It feels like ages away but bub will be here before we know it!

    It's a fond memory of mine the first time I washed baby clothes and had all the little outfits hanging on the line when I was expecting my first baby.

    I washed mine in a bunch about a month beforehand, as it gave me an idea of what I had and still needed.
