We asked our Facebook fans: "Do your children wear hand-me-downs? See what they said:

I have no problem with hand me downs problem is that no one else in my family has twins so we end up having to buy everything. - Gezell Andrea Johannes

Yes, my two older sons share clothes all the time. I only have one daughter so no hand me downs. But I have no problem with them. I still shop though. But especially for crèche they don't need new stuff. - Allison Wainwright

Yes thank goodness for them! Babies grow so quick. - Rika-Marie Whelan

Yes, its great, I have young ones, they can wear it at home and whilst playing. Keep the good new clothes you buy for going out! Lol! - Beverley Rantso

Yes, why not? If the clothes are in good condition without and holes or tears. I don't see a reason why they shouldn't. It's just clothes. If you lost everything in life and got hand me downs, you would accept it then, wouldn't you? It should be good enough for you always! - Sherree-lee Kruger

I don't see a problem with it if I had children but I hate it when people keep all their "junk" to give you just to get rid of it. I don't have children and people are keeping all their stuff for me, I know they being good hearted but if I do have a child I like to experience shopping for them! - Desiree Pillay

Yes! My baby girl gets everything from her older sister, except underwear and shoes. I also buy most of their clothes from baby/children bazaars. The clothing is good quality and its cheap. I do buy new clothes for both of them on the odd occasion. I just personally find it pointless to spend huge amounts of money on new clothes when they grow so fast. Some people look down on me for doing this and they think Im poor and cant afford new stuff, but hey, each to their own, plus I'm saving lots of money that I can use for other necessaties for them! - Caitlin Barber

See no problem with it if it. Is still in good condition, especially 0-3 months and 3-6 month mostly it is only worn once or twice. And if your clothes got to small/big for you don't just let it lie there give it to some one who can use it. - Jolanda Janse Van Vuuren-Greyling

Nope. I also don't keep anything for the second one! - Estelle van Rensburg
