I wash everything before I put it on my son (3 months old) but I bought another set of sheets today and I want to put them on the bed. The sheets on there now need to be changed. Do I have to wash the sheets first too?

I usually only have one set but i have realized that with cosleeping I definitley need 2 lol.

I would wash them. Besides that stiff feel of new sheets there's no telling what sort of residue is on them from manufacturing and packaging. I'm kinda funny about that stuff though cause DD and I have sensitive skin.

I wash all cloth/clothing for everyone before we use/wear it.

I would specifically because you cosleep. I'm not gonna lie...before baby I probably wouldn't...but it was just me and my dh. Now I always make sure to wash everything no matter whose it is. You never know who or what babies my come in contact with.

I would. I always worry about gross hands touching the things I wear. lol

Man, I haven't bought new sheets for our bed in years. I'm so jealous.

Oh, you're better than me. lol I'm so lazy.

"That spitup's dry. Don't worry about it."

"How MUCH pee is there? I mean, is it a lot? What's your definition of 'a lot'?"

"Just wipe his nose on the sheet. On the END of the sheet, where our feet touch. That's fine."

I wash new stuff because I worry about other people touching it. But my baby's pee and spit up and snot? Oh, that's fine. lol

Quoting Ashiopeia:
