I'm getting ready to wash the outfits we will be taking to the hospital and what we will need in the few days afterwards (a few newborn, a few 0-3mo, blankets, hats, mits, socks, etc). We're keeping the tags on the rest so we can exchange them as needed or wash them to use when we get home.
I know when I buy clothes for myself, I account for a little bit of shrinking in the dryer when choosing a size.
From your experiences, do infant clothes shrink in the dryer? Should I hang them instead? Or fluff them for a few minutes so they're soft and then hang them? This is my first experience with all of this but I can't help but notice that these newborn clothes look soooo tiiiiiny already!!
