    Hi Soph!

    I would take newborn as they fit up a 9lb baby and as you are petite and gawjuss I'm pretty sure your baby won't be a heffalump!!!

    Vests and babygros as they have poppers and easy to get on and off....also muslins or bibs for any windy/colicky moments....


    I'd take a vest and a babygrow for each day you think you'll be in and then also pack two extra vests and two more babygros , just in case of emergencies! You can always get your OH to bring extras in as and when you need them!

    Annabelle was 7lb 9oz born and new born was huge, she didnt go into 0-3 months till she was about a month old!

    like others say dont bother with outfits too fiddly.

    I'll probably pack a premie outfit for my little girl for leaving the hospital. Aiden was 6 lbs 6 oz when he was born and needed to be in premie size outfits for 2 weeks. I'm expecting that his sister won't be a whole lot bigger. I will pack a newborn size outfit, too. Just in case she's bigger than expected. 0-3 month size will be too big, I'm sure. For the hospital stay, the hospital provides little shirts and swaddling blankets. I'll probably bring my own cute little swaddling blankets though.

    I was worried about this too.... My mum was saying i wont be in any mood to be trying to get little arms and legs into proper outfits and i'll just want to have loads of onesies with me.... I'd quite like to have him in a nice outfit for coming home though... I got a gorgeous little outfit that some friends brought back from the states, i may put him in that

    I have packed a few vests and a few baby grows in newborn sizes, I was thinking that the baby will probably be wrapped in a blanket to come home so no-one will see the out fit anyway and babygrows will be so much easier!
