True! but I l only washed them 2 days ago. That Dreft Detergent is expensive!!
Yes, you should wash all babies clothes and blankets, sheets, ect before you use them even if they're new. I also read you should not use fabric softener or dryer sheets because they reduce the flame resistant properties in the clothing and bedding. I thought that was weird because I use dryer sheets with every load I do, but I wont with the baby stuff I guess.
True... all the blankets, towels, linens and clothes up to 6 months - which was all I could fit in her closet and dresser! I haven't washed the bigger clothes that I tubbed up, or prepped all the cloth diapers.
Sort of true. I've washed about two newborn outfits just in case (will return the others pending how big she is so left tags on), and a bunch of her 0-3 month stuff. We definitely have enough clean clothes, onesies, blankets, sheets, etc. to get us through two weeks or so before I'll have to do more of her laundry. (Plus, I've got my mom on standby with a bottle of Dreft ) I just didn't want to get too far ahead and end up washing stuff we don't get a chance to use.

True- I washed most of them about 2 months ago so I could put them away. And all the new ones we've gotten are washed also.
Even washed the 9-24mos ones that are in a rubbermaid tub it was easier than trying to separate them before washing them.
Brenna- I have washed all new clothes but that is because I have very sensitive skin and dont want to chance anything irritating LO if she has my skin and gets my eczema also.
Any laundry detergent that is Free of dyes & perfumes is fine. Its the same thing as Dreft but normally cheaper. I have used the same detergent for her stuff as mine & DH's. Which is, All Free & Clear and then Downy Free & Clear for fabric softener.
