  • Yes it is bad to take them and not to use them. Your friends thought enough about you and your baby to save those items for you. I would think that you are ungreatfull if you don't use something someone gave you for your child.

  • I accept them and use them as long as they are in good condition and not outdated. Or else I will go through them and take what I like and that my kids will wear and give the rest to them to offer to another friend.

  • My grandma does that she buys me clothes for the baby and myself that I would NEVER be caught dead in. I feel bad not wearing them but they have actually made pretty good pregnancy clothes. As for the baby clothes I just explain to her that I have enough clothes but if I need some more I will gladly let her know.

  • I accept them, but dd has so many clothes already that we don't need them. I have other friends who do need them, so I accept what anyone gives me and then give it to someone who really can use it and needs it.

  • I accept and use them, but what is outdated, dirty or useless to me I will either give it away again or dispose of it.

  • If you take clothes and don't use them you need to pass them on. There are lots of people out there who could use them...
