  • I just prefer to have my son not use underwear used kind of like training him to not share them. Just my opinion because we all have our own body fluids and I just would not want to share that so I do not let my son do it either.

  • Actually... yeah it doesn't bother me when they are little and form someone I know. I wouldn't do this over age like 6 though....especially for girls. This is what hot water is for.

  • I used to buy used cloth diapers and I don't really see much of a difference in using used underwear. As long as they are well cleaned then I don't see an issue. That being said I have not ever received them, but my SIL has asked me for them when getting my son's stuff.

  • We don't take hand me down underwear. I'd rather buy new underwear that way I know my kids butt is the only one that's been in them!

  • I took hand me down underwear for my daughter, that's why bleach and hot water are around. It's not nasty...unless they are stains.
