What do you do with baby clothes that no longer fit?
Give back to your community by donating clothes that are old or no longer worn. For example, go through your baby’s closet and find outfits that don’t fit and hold no sentimental value, then donate them to parents who may be less fortunate.
Should you wash children’s clothes before wearing?
In general, I recommend that new clothes be washed before children wear them, especially if the clothing will be in direct contact with the skin. Some clothes are treated with chemicals to prevent the growth of certain bacteria. They may cause allergic reactions on the skin, especially in areas of friction or sweating.
How much should I sell my kids clothes for?
Generally, it is best to price your items 50\% to 70\% less than the retail price. For example, if you bought a $20 toy for your child, then it should be priced at $6 to $10. Clothes are usually priced $2 to $3 for everyday styles and brands from Cherokee and Carters.

How can I help my child choose the right size clothes?
Have your child try on the clothes from the largest size to the smallest size. Avoid looking at the size label while trying on. This will help her enjoy whatever size actually fits, instead of starting small and trying to force her body into something uncomfortable or despairing over her body’s size.
Should I upsize my child’s clothes?
When shopping for clothes in a retail store, the key is to prepare in advance to “upsize.” This is especially true if your child has recently gained weight or her body has changed. Upsizing means that you choose multiple sizes of the same item, including one that you are fairly certain will be too large.
How often does a baby go through clothes?
From spit-ups to blowouts, your baby may go through multiple outfits a day — which means more laundry. Keep in mind that fabrics like cotton, while comfortable, are prone to shrinkage, so it may be wise to go up a size. Shop in person.
