    Target & pumpkin patch both do a size 1-2. Sometimes hard to find in target stores but you can usually get online pretty easily

    I haven't read the replies but no way I would ever hand down undies. Yuck.

    I would never in my life wear a 2nd hand bikini bottom and never wear anyone else's used undies, so I wouldn't make my kids do it. Eww.

    Default Hand-me-down Undies

    There have been a few times when I've been at a friends house and forgotten a change of clothes for my dd (got wet/dirty playing outside) and haven't hesitated borrowing undies and clothes from my friend's daughters. The same goes for when they are visiting our place, never an issue. I've passed on my Ds's undies that he has outgrown to a friend (asked her first if she wanted them) when she was toilet training her son, she was very grateful as her son was going through so many in a day.

    Any that are visibly soiled or stained get put in the bin but thankfully I can say that my kids never had any poo accidents so apart from the odd skid mark, they stay in pretty good condition.

    Gave my sons old undies to a friend. They had never had a accident in them and were in great condition. She used them as spares for kindy and in the car

    What if her kids had ringworm or some other skin disease? And she only washed in lukewarm water?

    Thanks for everyone's views... I'm still undecided.

    Can I really expect ds2 to wear someone else's undies when there's no way in heck I would wear second hand undies/swimmers myself? (.... Leakage.... Ewww...Enough said!)

    Mighty have to defer to hubby...!

    Would you throw out your children's clothes/undies if they had the same thing???

    I don't know about everyone one else but I always make sure I re-wash all hand me downs for my children.

    A bit of common sense goes a long way.
