What do you do with your baby things after they pass? Is it too hard to use it for another child?

I recently lost my baby girl who was my first born, she was barried the day after she turned 6 months old. It's been almost 4 weeks now and I still have her things out in the house. I don't know if I should get rid of the things and only keep a few things or keep everything in case I want to use it for another child.

First, i'm so sorry for your loss. I can't speak from experience but I would keep everything. I can imagine it is incredibly hard for you right now to keep everything and be reminded of your little girl but I would hate for you to get rid of everything and regret it later on (sometimes one can really be hard on themselves with regret for something done). I would suggest you keep everything but put it away so you don't run into it every day, reminding you. I don't believe I have ever heard of anyone regretting for keeping something like that but I have definitely heard of people regretting getting rid of something that meant something to them.

I would keep everything. But that's just how I am. If my daughter dies it would be really hard to get rid of things.
