    Might not fit though? They seem pretty small size compared to what I've seen you girls saying was babies weight at birth. I think it said 15lb? Not sure now though!

    I obught only couple of newborn for Jack and loads 0-3, They bury them for a bit but they soon grow in to them.
    Top tip aswell if anyone wants to buy for you after baby is born ask for 3-6/6-9 as you'll get loads of 0-3 that baby will barley wear

    I bought mainly newborn for Charlie, but when she arrived we had to borrow stuff off the hospital, she was only 6lb and nothing fit her!!
    Even the tiny baby stuff was large on her.

    Id get a mainly 0-3 and a couple of newborn outfits, then get OH to pop out and get some stuff when you know what size!

    Most people I know had to put their babies in newborn or even tiny baby for a couple of weeks before 0-3 months fit.

    At 9 pounds and 10 pounds, neither of my girls ever fit in a newborn outfit, nor diapers.

    My mum told me to only buy 0-3 months, since when my brother was born she and my aunt had stocked up on tiny baby clothing and it was too small! so of course having my first baby and all, I listened to mums advice. Turns out my gut feeling was right, Bethanie was 7lbs.. and nothing fit her properly. Most of her outfits were huge on her at first.. but it's true, they grow into them so quickly. Id say 0-3 just to be on the safe side, but id also get some newborn stuff and leave the tags on/keep receipts so that you can return if you need to.

    By the way - will you be finding out the sex? because I have way over 150 things for sale (all pretty much new/hardly worn).

    Also, your baby is due a day after Bethanie was born. :)

    Yep, some have tags.. some have tags removed but have never been worn and the majority of the stuff has been worn literally only a few times. It's all very clean and in great condition, she has been so spoilt with clothes so I feel bad that she didn't get much wear out of it.. but it's also nice that another little bebe is going to get some nice stuff!

    I had two premies. Kassidy was 3lb 110z and Bailey was 4lb 15oz. Tiny! I had to exchange soooo many outfits....a real pain. But, then they grew so fast, I was right back shopping for bigger sizes. I would say buy 0-3 months instead of newborn. A little big is not as bad as too small.
