  • I washed clothes as soon as I would get them from showers, random gparent gifts, etc. and then fold them/hang them up. You never know!! I had the overnight bag packed and ready at 35 weeks, and I had an emergency c-section later that week!!

  • I also washed them when I would recieve them.. Then I would fold them nicely and put them in the dresser. Im 38 weeks pregnant now and Im still washing random stuff I get from people. LOL your best bet would be now before you get way swamped

  • All clothing and washcloths (not sure what you are asking about) should be washed. I don't see a reason to wait.

  • I washed the clothes as I got them so I wouldn't be overwhelmed with piles of clothes to wash and put away all at once. It really did help!

  • I only washed the going home outfit and a couple others...because I was afraid of 2 things 1) that she would come out a boy and then I'd be stuck with all these clothes I couldnt return...or 2) that she would come out really big and not fit the newborn clothes. My sister was 10lb 15oz and wearing a 3mos when she was born so I was kinda worried about that. She came out a girl and 7lb 4oz so I just washed them as needed after she was born.

  • Um.. I would say 37 weeks would be about perfect. That's what I am right now and in a couple days I'm washing all her clothes and blankets.
