Yes, I'll definitely wash everything before he wears it. Clothing companies put sizing-chemicals on their fabrics to help them keep their shape on the hangers in the store, so that should definitely be cleaned off before getting into contact with new baby skin.
I'm in the process of clearing out the nursery, so once the closet is clear I'll be able to wash and hang up all the sweet clothes!

Anything that wasn't already ours, yes, because as pretty much everyone has said, who knows what's on it!

Yup washing everything and actually as I type this my washer is full of baby pink girl goodness!! :) I do it because I LOVE for them to be nice and soft and not have the crispy new feeling, PLUS I just absolutely LOVE the smell of the baby dreft. :)
