    You could always get the shoes and give her the receipt so she can change them if they don't fit? Or tokens for the store that sells them, attached to a photo of the ones you want to buy.

    Board books are always good. Like the Very hungry catapillar.

    Otherwise I think the standard show size for a 12 month old is about a 3 but that depends on the baby, some places do a 12-18 month size, otherwise go for a 4 and then he can grow into them (always better to go too big than small).

    PeanutBean really does! lol I've just received it today for my nephew who will be 1 in Jan. It only fits from 12 months so can't get it from mine. It's too cute!

    Really,will it not adjust? I'd be tempted to try the one you bought on your LO - that or sew on some velcro....

    I had to stop Mum frombuying mothercare's little reindeer outfit on Monday - I said it was better to wait and see how big he is and get it for Xmas day,.

    And Boots have a really cute pumpkin bib - don't think he'll be here in time thou.

    I would just ask the mum for his clothing and shoe sizes. You dont have to tell her what your getting, just ask for a general idea.

    Well mine hasn't been born yet! lol It's kind of smock like so I can't see it adjusting really. As it happens we are definitely going to get the reindeer outfit though! There are so many cute things and as we've not been able to buy any clothes at all yet we're going to have a mini-splurge on some cute stuff. https://www.babyandbump.com/pregnancy-club/60903-cant-resist.html

    You should ask his mum what size clothes he takes and what size shoes he takes. You can just say you have no idea what you are going to get but when you go shopping to get his gift if you decide on shoes or clothes you want the right size. :D

    I love the reindeer slippers, you can get similar at Mothercare too but when would I use them on a newborn? Next year, I'll go all out with the cute stuff! We'll have more money too as I'll be back at work.

    Can you ask the mum for his size or did you want it to be a total surprise
