Ridiculous PFB question about starting nursery

My 8 month old DD starts nursery next week. I've got a whole bag of nametapes and started sewing. Do I need to name everything (in which case she can wear the same 3 outfits each week) or just bits likely to be taken off and kept off? So far I've named her sunhat, coat and one cardigan. I think I have a long way to go smile

You don't have to label anything however as a room leader in a nursery I like sun hats, suncream, wellies, shoes, coats and bags labeled.

Don't bother with name tapes. Write the name on the label with a laundry marker. Much quicker!

I sew in name tags into the expensive big stuff - coat, sun hat, cardi - and have sticky name labels for shoes, sun cream and bag.

For everything else I just write her initials in marker pen on the label if I remember and so far we've lost a few socks, which I can live with except when she comes home in someone else's minging filthy ones.

We bought a name stamp with fabric ink for stamping names on clothing. Much easier than sewing when they grow so fast. Having said that, I only bother to name a few things now anyway.
