i just assumed that everyone washed all the clothes etc bought for newborns - however was saying it in friends house the other day and they thought i was mad - having family who work in retail and have seen some stock rooms and things thrown around i would want to have peace of mind that everything is clean and fresh whats the norm
I have washed anything that was in plastic, can't bear 2 wash my little stuff on hangers in case they lose that new look-it said in the book I have if u wash whats in plastic rest should b ok hth
I washed everything, new clother (even ones on hangers) cellular blankets and cot /moses basket sheets.
No I dont plan on washing everything, I got some fab babygros in M&P's that are sooo soft and smell lovely dont think they need washing, may wash some baby towels or anything that might feel "hard" but other than that everything is staying as it is
I hadn;t planned on washing clothes, just towels and sheets/ blankets. But midwife at antenatal class recommended washing everything. So probably will now. I would have thought stuff in plastic was protected and stuff on hangers more likely to have been sneezed on etc.
God hadn't even thought of washing stuff - what washing powder is best for new borns?? Do you use Comfort is the wash?
) After the first few days I don't think I'll wash new stuff, will try and see if baby has any reaction.
I wasn't going to wash anything either but then the midwife in my ante natal class was saying how thin and sensitive the babys skin is especially in the first few days that I decided I'd wash everything.(I actually got my mam to wash it all
A non biologial washing powder is the one to use according to midwife. I hate alundry, DH does it all. But I'm off this week so said I'd do it today. Instead I'm on WOL avoiding it!
oh I didnt know it was mentioned at antenatal classes, think i'll be doing a lot of washing by the time Jan comes
I washed absolutely everything whether or not it was in plastic but then I am a bit OCD about things like that, couldn't bear the thoughts of people's grubby hands being all over the clothes before I bought them and then putting them straight onto the baby. I used persil small and mighty non bio and comfort pure but might try using the aldi non bio that we use ourselves once baby is a bit older as couldn't afford to keep using the fancy stuff!
