Tips for selling children's clothes?

I'm trying to sell DS's new baby clothes (sizes newborn, 1 month, and 0-3 months). I've sold a few things on Ebay before, but mostly books, and a few adult clothes.

What are your best tips for successfully selling baby items? Would I be better selling it as a big bag (one of boys' stuff, one of unisex), or in smaller bundles? I don't want to sell stuff individually as I think the starting prices would be just so low, and the postage so high, that it wouldn't really be worth it.

Baby clothes - if they are straightforward things like vests, babygros, socks etc and they are "ordinary" brands such as supermarket, next etc, I would put them in a bundle.

If you have any items that are a bit more upmarket, consider selling them either individually, in pairs etc. People sell Boden stuff individually for example.

There's so much 0-3 on eBay so I suggest picking out all the good brands and making up into little outfits.
Gap next M&S Mothercare and anything vaguely designer should sell well.
Sleep wear and gap socks sell well!!
Bundle up underwear and add into outfits as it often doesn't sell alone. Don't bother with supermarket unless extra cute jumper or useful.
List in evening, 8pm when traffic is busy
