You don't know who touched the clothes before you bought them. Gross. Also they put chemicals on the clothes to make them have an ironed appearance. I've also heard of someone working at a clothes factory and there's mouse poop in some of the boxes

When my daughter was a newborn I washed all her clothes prior to her wearing it unless she was taking pictures in a outfit then i wouldn't wash it but I think it's best to wash clothes prior to them wearing when their newborn

I didn't once in a pinch when I had no other outfit and stopped at a store. Baby had a rash from the weird chemicals clothes are treated with in the packing process. Definitely wash if you can.

I always wash them. You just never know who or what touched them before you purchased them!

I wash all new clothes before they're worn, for baby, me and hubs.

I did, I still do. You don't know where those fabrics had been at. But for sure in boxes. Also I wash every toy because he takes everything into his mouth

I just do a baby load by itself with all different colours otherwise I'll never get a load haha. But yes I try to always wash them prior to first time use.

Yes, always wash. But as a side note, baby detergent is the EXACT SAME as free and clear detergent. And free and clear is a lot cheaper. And, no, you don't need to separate the colors. Baby won't wear those clothes log enough to mess with that.

Absolutely. And wash it with detergent that doesn't contain any dyes and one that is scent free. I use Tide Free & Clear.
