Clearing Out the Wardrobe: What to do With Newborn Baby Clothes?

Well baby girl has reached the 3 month mark and doesn’t fit her 0-3 month old clothes anymore. Now is the time to do the first clear out of newborn clothes in her wardrobe.
I do feel a bit sad about this as some pieces are so cute. I have been making up a Keepsake box as I go along keeping some items that hold special memories for us. I’ve kept her first baby gro and hat that she wore in the hospital. The first item of clothing we bought at our 20 week scan when we knew we were having a girl. That’s the cute little dress in the picture below. We have popped her little vest into the box as well that her daddy bought her as he is a huge Metallica fan.

Other newborn baby clothes we have decided to pack up, and sell some bits on eBay. At least this way other mums will get some use out of them as well for their babies. These snow suit items are perfect for winter, keeping babies warm and snug.
If you have family or friends with babies at the correct age, that’s another way of clearing out your babies wardrobe. I believe it’s important to have a clear out every so often to keep that clothing cycle going around and so you don’t get over run with outgrown clothes.
It seems nowadays babies never get full wear and tare out of there clothes, they grow so fast. Another way of clearing out newborn clothes is to give them to your local charity shops. They are always glad for baby clothes.

 The money we get from the clothes sales we will be putting back into her clothes pot. 
These sleep suits from Next below are gorgeous, very good quality, lots of wear still to get from them. The one thing I love about Next sleep suits is that they all have foldable covers for the tiny little hands. Perfect for night-time keeping the hands warm. They have very cute designs for baby girls. We bought some more in the next size up to use now.
This is the cutest little sun hat and dress for a newborn. Baby girl never really got to wear it due to the time of year she was born in. It’s not really for February weather!.

There is always something she needs at the minute. Mind you that’s partially my fault as I can’t resist wondering into the baby clothes department at my local supermarket. This week I happened to come across the cutest denim jacket in her 3-6 month size. I couldn’t help but buy it. My reasoning is that the weather is getting warmer so she will need to have a light jacket instead of her woolly fleecy one. 

What do you do with your outgrown baby clothes?
I would love to hear your thoughts.

Clothes for my baby girl

Today’s post is about recent finds and what clothes for my baby girl we have been given. We have been so lucky with family and friends giving us lots of clothes for baby girl.
Isn’t funny that before I had baby girl I never used to take any notice of the children’s clothes departments in supermarkets?
I can tell you now that’s changed! I’m straight over to the sale section hunting out bargains. I didn’t realise how fast babies grow. She is 9 weeks old and for the past couple of weeks she’s been in 3-6mths. It’s because she is very long, must take after her 6ft 4 daddy! Her sleep suits are baggy in the middle but fit her perfectly length ways.
We picked up this cute little pink dress in the sale at Sainsbury’s for her. It was £12 down to £6. I love the little matching pants inside that come with them!
This little pink dress will be perfect for her great-grandmothers 100th birthday party in July.
