Side note: Cloth diapers don't count as laundry, so none of this applies to those loads. Also, if you have an infant under 6 months old, I wouldn't even attempt any of this. Carry on.
B and I have one very full basket, Cora's basket is half-full or a bit more. (Kids' clothes are small!) For us, that's usually 2 full loads on laundry day.
*I'm pretty sure I can maintain this once a week thing with 2 kids (after the 6-month window). Time will tell. After 2 kids, maybe we'll bump it up to twice a week.
Read: no mud stains to sort out. Snowsuits and coats don't get washed until June, of course.
|None of this is laundry.|
[I say this, but I'll also claim that I only have enough maternity office clothes to last me about one week right now. And yet we still make it work.]
|The 'hot wash' (don't-care clothes) are in the washer and the 'delicates' are standing by|
On that note, don't pre-wash anything unless you got it second-hand. This tip especially applies to brand-new baby clothes. Because if you don't take the tags off and baby never wears it, you can totally re-gift it.
