I'm gonna be a new mommy in about 7 weeks. I was just wondering when/if I start washing baby clothes, blankets etc.?

Whenever u want. I did it a week before my induction date.

I washed as I bought or acquired the clothes. It's good to get a jump on a few outfits in the newborn and 0-3month until you know what size your little squish will be in. Congrats momma.

I did mine about 2 months before I had my baby, which ended up being perfect timing as he came a month early :)

Start doing it when you have the time. You never know when your LO will choose to arrive!

Do it as you get time. Do not leave it for later you'll have tons more stuff to do

I did it early and just got it ready. It made me feel better to have that done and one less worry

I did some and saved some of the older sizes for later. And because we had so much of everything, I didn't wash it all and left tags on some(like that weren't my favorite) so I could return and use that money elsewhere like on diapers :)

I would say do it a month or a little more before :) at least a load with what you want the LO to wear on way home from the hospital. Might want to buy a fragrance-free etc detergent to wash with. My friend's husband washed their LO's clothes with their detergent and he started breaking out :(

I would wash the blankes and things that aren't clothes. And wash a couple new pieces of clothing but when my son was born he weighed 10.7 and had to go straight into 3m clothing and I couldn't take any or the younger clothing back because I had washed it all already thinking I would get ahed of the game lol

I found that I washed clothes that she never ended up wearing. I could have returned them and saved money. (Or washed clothes that didn't fit well) It's up to you but I would wait until your sure your LO is going to wear it.

I washed mine 3 months before, and thank god I did! I ended up being put on hospital bed rest at 32 weeks and had my little one at 35 weeks! My family was making fun of me when I had everything prepared and ready to go so early. So glad that I did!!
