Some parents feel that the baby's clothing needs to be washed separately from the clothes of the rest of the family. This belief seems to stem from the fact that the other family members' clothing could somehow taint or contaminate the baby's clothes. There is no reason to worry about this at all, and it is perfectly safe to wash baby's clothes, and also their bedding, along with everyone else's. The only exception to this rule is cloth diapers or nappies. If parents are using the traditional cloth diapers, and washing them at home rather than using a diaper service, they must be washed apart from everything else.
