  • Yes I did and it has come in handy with my newest child, which is a boy like my first born.

  • Since there will be a 6 year spread, we've only kept a few favorite pieces, and given the rest to people we know who can't afford to buy a ton of clothes. (DH wanted to hold on to everything, like he does everything else, but who wants to hold on to that stuff for 6 years??)

  • no i got rid of the baby clothes after I had my second son. I thought that I wouldn't have anymore but now i'm thinking about a third and I will just go out and buy everything new anyway.

  • Yes. Nothing wrong with dressing baby in older sibling's old clothes. Kid's clothes can be so expensive and they go through them so fast.

  • I plan on doing that. I'm expecting my first one and I know I'm going to have at least one more. :)

  • Yes, I did when I thought there was a chance we might have another one (and I was glad I did- saved me lots of money!) Now that we are done having kids, I do get rid of the clothes as they get too small. However, I mainly give them to friends so in the event of an oops I could probably get most of them back!

  • I was but now I'm starting to give them away but keeping the furnitures and things like walker, playpen, monitors.
