When do you wash the babies clothes/linens?

How soon before your due date do you plan on washing the babies clothes and linens? 

I'm getting a little nervous because we're in the middle of a home improvement project that won't be finished for another few weeks, which is about a month before my due date. I don't really want to bring any of the baby stuff out right now because the house is dirty and dusty from it. 

I'm glad we're getting this renovation finished before the baby comes, but I'm starting to get that nesting urge, and I can't do anything with it!

I washed the babies things about a month before.  Then as I got more things from people, I washed them the week of.  I am having a c- section tomorrow and I had to wash some things a couple of days ago. Very exciting time for me!

I was renoing when DD was born a month early. My BFF came over while I was in the hospital and washed a couple loads. The rest I did when I got home.

I did about 3 weeks ago. I'm due in 5 weeks.

Your EDD is not a psychic prediction of exact timing, or an expiry. Be patient - every extra day your baby remains in the womb is a blessing for his or her health!

I would do it whenever you have the urge IF you weren't renovating. There is a lot of stuff floating around in those materials I wouldn't want to risk near my newborn.

I'd do it once you are done with your renovations.

I'm due mid-December and I don't plan on washing anything until mid-November. If I take it out and do it any sooner my other kids will just get into it and play with it all so I'll just have to rewash it. I'll just wait.

I don't even remember with my boys. I have a feeling since I know how I am with my kids that it happened atleast twice before they were born. The clothes that I have been given for this pregnancy (first girl) seriously smelt like baby puke so they were immediately washed. I will re was everything new and used again the beggining of December since December is a crazy month for us.
