Re: What age to purge "baby" books?

I love to purge and pass on and very rarely do I ever wish I had held on to something but the board books bit me in the butt because we gave them all away and then decided to have 2 more children after a 5 year break I have repurchased our favorites and was able to find quite a few second hand but it still was a bummer. If you are 100% sure that there will be no additions to your family then anytime after 3yo is probably good. I love the idea of rotation because that will keep them fresh and you will get lots more use that way.


Just in case.

Re: What age to purge "baby" books?

I'm starting to get rid of some now. I'm having a harder time with these than with clothes. I have lots of nieces and nephews coming, so I won't get rid of all of them, but between 3 kids we have tooooo many!

My twins destroyed many a board book, so books with paper pages have just started making an appearance.
