I love to keep the special and much loved handmade baby clothes. I hope they will be passed onto future generations. Do other mums keep particular items?

  • Yes I do this too. But I’m a bit of a hoarder anyway.

  • So far I’ve kept my sons hair from first hair cut.
    His wrist bands from hospital
    First pair of shoes.
    Birthday cards
    Congratulations cards
    And I had his hands and feet scalptered and put in a frame.

  • We have moved quite a few times since my children have been born and made the tough decision to let a few things go. I did however decide to keep the outfit they came home from the hospital in, their hospital id tag and the card on their crib. I have also kept their first birthday cards.

  • I have kept keepsakes in a special little box which is well preserved.

  • And I think that’s indeed the reason why we keep them. :-)
    I’ve still got all my daughter’s baby teeth!

  • I kept a lot of my kids baby things. My son has recently become a dad and I excitedly passed on all his clothes. Nothing was worn as my son was a summer baby and his son was a winter baby. By the time summer rolls around he won’t fit into the clothes I gave :( I also kept (didn’t pass on) their first shoes, locks of hair from first hair cuts, first tooth lost. I tried to keep my sons umbilical cord, but was unsuccessful. I have the positive pregnancy test for my daughter too. Things I’m sure will get grown out when I’m gone :,( but give me joy while I’m still here

  • I love the fact that you kept the little piece of wallpaper with the bears – so sweet! :)

  • Yes, I do. Some special clothes for example, her first toys… I even have a piece of the wallpaper covering her room. with all the little bears. :-)
