I may be still a little early to think about wanting to donate all my preemie clothes that once belonged to my 3yr old son. But regardless, they are boys clothes, and this time i'm having a girl, so it may not be good use for me if something were to happen again
So my first thought was, to donate it to the hospital where aidan was born at (NICU). They might have good use for the babies in there? Would they even take it?? It would be such a waste to trash them, as they are still so very new!!
I'm glad to hear that you're having a girl and that your pregnancy is going well. I'd honestly wait to get rid of your preemie clothes until baby is born. But once baby is born, I'd contact your hospital and your local March of Dimes to see if they will take the clothes or give you a suggestion of where you can donate them.
I was thinking more so along the lines that since she said that she was going for a scheduled c-section at 37 weeks that I'd recommend holding onto the preemie clothes just because baby could be small enough for the preemie clothes at 37 weeks... But there again, like you pointed out, wouldn't be the first time that she turned into a he when baby was born! LOL!
We still have ours since we are trying again and its likely ill have another preemie, but, i would donate them - save a few pieces that are special (first clothes they got to wear, gifts, take home outfit etc) and give the rest away if you're sure you wont use them again. Someone donated a TON of preemie clothes to us and we were so grateful. With the expenses of a baby in the hospital, no time to go shopping, the expense of clothes babies are only going to wear for a short time... its a lot to deal with buying that stuff. I'de either donate them to a specific family or just give them to the NICU and they'll either give them to a family for your or save them for babies who dont have clothes
