As he or she grows out of it?

We are giving my cousin's daughter first refusal as she is having her first baby at 16. We don't know yet if she's having a girl or boy though, so some stuff may be inappropriate.

Whatever doesn't go to her will go on Ebay or car boot. I'm not keeping it because I am done.

Packing it away for #2

After we're done, I plan to attend mom2mom sales to get rid of everything And kijiji.

Or save for my siblings. None are in any way ready for a baby though so it might be years and years and I don't want to store them that long

My lo's stuff is going to my sil, she is expecting her little one in April, so perfect timing. Not sure what she is having though, so if she doesn't need the clothes they are going on buysellusedstuff.

Sometimes, it feel weird that he is growing out of his stuff so fast.

Thank you Vicki for an beautiful siggy!

I'm sure some of it will be handed down, and some sold. I'll probably donate some things too.

Not sure yet. I'm holding on to clothes so far. I'm sure I'll give some away but I'm feeling more sentimental this time around.

We're still undecided as to whether our family is complete (well, at least I'm undecided ). So I'm not going to hold onto most things. We'll probably sell some things on eBay and big things locally. I will have a more difficult time parting with his clothes. I found a neat idea on Pinterest to make a quilt out of favorite baby clothes. So I'm going to keep his clothes around for a while... perhaps until I learn how to sew.

I just gave my first batch of clothes to a friend who just had a baby girl. I cried sorting through it all, but DH has the V. We're done.

I am going to give everything to a friend who is pregnant with a girl. I've saved a few favorite outfits to keep but since we are done, I will pass everything along for someone else to get use of.

Packing away my absolute favs, or expensive items that can be reused just in case my last baby (ttc my 4th and last in a year or so) is another girl. Gave a LOT away already. Im a big believer in giving baby stuff away, Ive been given so much

I'm keeping it all. I'm all for giving and I like to help others, but Pippa is our rainbow baby. It's all so very special. I can't imagine selling or giving away the clothes George so lovingly picked out. Some outfits brought him to tears because she was so pretty in them. I know I sound awful, but I can't help it.
