Do you care if your child wears hand-me-downs?

A lot of new moms prefer that their child only wears/uses brand new items.  Do you care?  Do you make a point of only buying new things for your child or do you shop thrift stores or let them wear things that previously belonged to someone else?

We buy her hand me downs and/or take hand me downs all the time.

All of my little ones stuff are hand me downs from my family.
I dont mind one bit (: Still plan on cleaning and washing everything though when the nesting phase kicks in. My little guy will be here in 3 more months. Although, I should get some new things at my baby shower.

 Majority of my son's clothes are bought second hand.

I buy new. I won't put second hand stuff on my son. I just picture it being disgusting and dirty though I know that's not the case. My sister in law shops thrift stores and I could never tell unless she told me, so I know it's just in my head. I don't knock people who do though, saves a ton of money.

We only do hand me downs from our own children. I don't shop at thrift stores and don't take things from other families.

We usually buy new but I am happy with hand-me-downs if someone gives them to us.
