    Then she'd tell me. And I'll wash them and canesten rinse them so I don't see the problem.

    Between family members is fine. My kids put each others undies and clothes on sometimes and then parade around the house being funny. No big deal.

    This thread has left me quite confused.

    DS2 has some jocks from his cousin (my sisters son). I was planning on passing DS2's jocks to DS3. As they are expensive (I buy bonds and petite bateau). I would get rid of anything marked or stained

    But having read all the comments about not wearing second hand underwear themselves it hit me - I wouldn't wear secondhand underwear so why am I allowing it for DS2 and thinking about it for DS3.

    Quite conflicted now.

    I have three boys and they each get their own fresh sets of undies. DS2 and DS3 have to use enough hand me down stuff from their older brother so I always do brand new undies and socks.

    I think the differences for me are: 1) kids grow out of underwear quite quickly whereas adult underwear would have been worn for much longer. 2) pre-puberty there's a lot less that could have been on the undies.

    ETA: thinking about it it's mainly reason 1 for me though. I should also add the clause that I haven't actually done second hand undies for dd.

    Yeah I hear you. It's just really made me think about the decision though

    for those that say chuck the sh!tted on undies: do you also chuck out baby clothes that copped a visit to brown town?

    if it's for training purposes only and within the family, who cares. seems so wasteful to throw a pair of undies that got poo on them!

    Anything with poop is binned here. It's way too gross for me.

    I've only ever thrown out two pairs of undies - one of DS when he had gastro and honestly it was more of a oh my god it's both ends just try to clean up and he was a bit distraught so just threw them.

    DD had an accident at childcare and they bagged them and sent them home, hours later complete with dried up chunks of poop. I just looked at it and went nope!

    I put undies in the give away bag for charity provided they don't have holes in them and of course are clean. We only had one other boy to had DS' undies down to and I know she wouldn't take them and DD wouldn't wear his.

    have you had a child that has toilet trained yet?

    poo in a nappy is very different to poo in undies. Undies have no absorption whatsoever. If the poo rolls off the undies then maybe I'll keep them.

    A bit of poo on clothes I don't mind and I would keep. A number 3 all over clothes I would throw away.
