Giving Away My Baby's Clothes is Hard To Do

I have a niece who is six months younger than my baby girl. "Perfect," I thought. "I can send her all my daughter's old clothes." Yet every time I go through my baby's clothing to pack things up and send them off, I find myself sorting through saying, "Well, maybe I'll just keep this. And this. And this."

These clothes do not fit my daughter nor are they particularly interesting to anyone (other than me). I'm not talking about her Christening gown or the little hat she wore in the hospital. I'm talking about onesies and footie pajamas—clothes that will sit in storage going to no good use. I know keeping them is not very eco- or economically friendly, but I have the hardest time letting them go. I guess it's so hard to see her growing up so fast.

Do you save your baby's clothes? Do you have a hard time giving them away?

I resale a lot in consignment sales to buy new things-- then I keep special things and pass others along to a good friend so I can see her children wearing those little outfits.

I totally understand what that means, Suzanne - exactly the same happens to me...
