This might sound stupid...but I was washing baby clothes and my newborn clothes look like doll clothes they shrank...is there a special way to wash them..?

Not washing but you have to dry on low. My SO shrinks Emma's clothes all the time.

^^^ yes, agree! Dry them on a low heat setting. It'll take a little longer, but it helps keep the shrinking to a minimum! :) Learned that the hard way too.

I wash all of mine on hot and everything seems to shrink a bit, so my LO is always wearing the next size up.

I wash everything on Delicate cycle for washer & dryer on cold setting with the spin and soil level adjusted to what's needed --- most times on normal unless something soiled then I do soil level on high...
