I need my knowledgeable ladies!
Between family hand-me-downs, yard and consignment sales, I've started gathering some clothes. Cheap! Reused! Great!
I don't really know how much I'll need. I know I'll get some gifts and such (not really planning on registering for clothes, but I'm sure I'll get some anyway), so I don't plan on buying everything myself-- at least not yet. But I'd like to have some idea of what the end game looks like-- that is, what I'm really going to use in ~the first year.
-# shirts/onesies in 0-3 months, # in 3-6 months, etc.
-# footies/sleepers in each size
-# sleep sacks or swaddlers
-# pairs of socks
Or, to give me some idea, just how many outfits your babe went through in a day at different ages (I hear it's more than you'd think!)
Now, I'd love to see general answers to this question, or what you did personally with your older kids, but if it helps to give a recommendation for my personal situation...
-No daycare is planned, so we don't need a lot of "presentable outfits," per se.
-We are planning on EC'ing and CD'ing from birth, so I'm envisioning a lot of "outfits" that consist of just a T-shirt or cut off onesies and a CD butt... Maybe just a CD around the house when it gets hot over the summer, and maybe adding some Baby Legs/leg warmers next fall.
-We do laundry almost every day to keep on top of it... I'm sure that our frequency may go down, but I'm hoping it's at least 2-3x/week after baby gets here.
Thanks SO much! I don't have much of a clue, and I really need input before I buy out the next consignment sale (or pass up things I could really use)!
