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.

Which baby wipes are best for a newborn?

Before I had baby girl I felt really overwhelmed over lots of little things like what nappies or baby wipes should I buy and use on a newborn. Standing in the baby aisle at the supermarket was mind-boggling. There are lots of different brands of baby wipes and then there are the different kinds as well – scented or unscented? I really wanted to buy the correct baby wipes so as not to affect baby girl’s delicate skin. I also had been reading about just using cotton wool and water, so as a first time mum there is lots of different options out there, it’s just finding the right one for you.
