hello all

i have a collection of baby clothes for my id twins as well as blankets and all the bedding etc, i also have a collection of non bio washing stuff ready to get used. i think yes, but want to check, do i wash EVERYTHING due to come in contact with their skin?

Hi Sarah, i did with my first (had too much time on my hands obviouslysmile)
With DC2 i didnt (not enough time smile) and his skin was quite sensitive so ended up having to when he was about a week old.

So, i did wash everything but tbh not sure i used non-bio ever - sorry!

My twins are nearly 2 now, but I remember the days of washing tiny sleepsuits and vests!!
I washed it all, yes, but only used 1/2 the amount of (non bio) washing powder as I'm sure soap residue is nearly as nasty as the chemicals on the clothes.
I recently bought myself a box of fairy non bio to use (the one we used when they were tiny) to get that lovely smell again! Mmmmmmmmm smile

ok, am being reliably informed that we DID use non-bio! 3 kids under 4 caused a memory overload me thinks grin

right, best get the washing machine on then! non bio non bio non bio....

think it will be quite a cute and realistic sight seeing all the little onesies etc on the line outside!!


thanks other twin mummies

I did this too and IRONED shock the first load smile

Once born (6 weeks early) they didn't fit anything we'd bought and they wore new clothes straight from the shop with no issues!
