What should newborns wear to sleep?

Do I need to wash newborn clothes?
A: Yes, you must wash newborn baby clothes before you dress your baby in them. With hand-me-downs, it can be tempting to skip the wash, but you don’t know how long the clothes have been in storage collecting dust or possibly mildew, so it’s best to wash them anyway. With brand-new baby clothes, washing is a major must.
