  • Yup Yup.. I washed everything before my girls come home! Definitely.. store bought fabrics can have things in them that will cause your baby to have an allergic reaction.

  • congratulations Some stuff I did..other stuff I didn't. It depends on what you want to do. The bedding I had was givin to me used so I did wash that before putting it in her crib. The brand new stuff, I didn't wash first. I don't know why..guess I really didn't think about it..I liked th e"brand new" look of it all, I guess LOL.

  • I started uning the generic brand of dreft because it was half the price. I washed everything in it before my son was born, I am glad I did because for the first 3 months he had really sensitive skin and broke out if anything was washed in regular detergent.

  • This is my third baby. I will was his clothes in Purex free and clear which is what I use for my other kids who have sensitive skin.
