    Just started doing this as we've been given looooooads of new and second hand stuff but it all needs washing anyway... I actually sat and watched it spin around in the machine for about quarter of an hour going 'awwww, look, it's so cute!' while husband sat there thinking I was a lunatic!

    I know it's sad but oh my life, how cute are those tiny clothes? :blush:

    Biological has enzymes that CAN irritate baby's skin. It doesn't always but when they're tiny it's best to be safe. I've used the free 2 Fairy non-bio tablets from my Bounty pack and then bought a concentrated non-bio liquid from Tesco which worked out the best value. I also got some of the pure fabric softener.

    Bit early to ask, and haven't actually got anything yet, but just in case, do you have to wash new stuff too? Or just second-hand?

    Thanks x

    New stuff also needs to be washed as most have a chemical on them for packaging purposes.

    will probably use fairy non bio as well. I like looking at how small and cute the clothes are but then I panic that I give to birth to something that will fit those clothes :D
