    how many sleep suits do you think we'll need?????????

    all the ones ive got at the mo are up to 3 months, so i think theyll be too big to start off!

    so just spent £50 on Next.co.uk on sleepsuits for newborn lol! i duno if theyll last long or not - so we put vests on them aswell or just a romper suit???

    i have no clue! :haha:

    I plan on always putting vests on for the nappy aswel as warmth, I have ended up with loads of sleepsuits i get the tesco ones £4 for 2!! they grow out of them so quick i reckon theres no point in paying lots. I think in newborn size i must have about 8. Thats just a guess of the top of my head iv got more in 0-3 and in 3-6 i think i have 5 or 6 i dont think ill need more than ten as they will be getting washed obviously :thumbup:

    i always put a vest under both sleepsuits and day clothes

    not sure how many we need exactly, i have a drawer full of newborn and 0-3 months but only coz my gran bought some and i was buying them too but yeah i would say in the winter you will prob need a vest on all the time, so 2-3-4 per day depending on nappy leakages lol

    jees sounds like a right waffle, hope it makes a bit of sense

    Like sweetie_c, I've got around 8 sleepsuits 0-3 months. They are also from Tesco, didn't want to spend too much at this point. Vests are also important for keeping the baby warm and cosy, I may have about the same amoung as the sleepsuits.

    The good thing about baby clothes is that they dry fast on the heaters during this time of the year.

    It goes nappy,then vest,then sleepsuit :)
    For warmth and for comfort :) Especially in this country where its pretty chilly all year round!
    They wear the vests until they're potty trained which is when you switch over to like proper vests,with no poppers.

    Ive got about 15 sleepsuits and 15 vests in newborn, its amazing how many you go througj with wet nappies and sick, lol.

    What size did you get off next upto 1 month?

    All my sleepsuits are Next and I think there worth the extra money they are good quality and wash really well too - plus the built in scratchmits are very handy x
