    I just wondered what size sleepsuits/vests people are taking to hospital?
    I spent ages yesterday deciding whether to get newborn or 0-3 months and in the end went for 0-3 months in case my baby is on the big size! When I got the stuff home and took it out of the packaging it looks really big, now I'm thinking I should have got newborn instead.....or should I get both? :shrug:

    I have also been thinking about the sizes of baby clothes!! I have so much 0-3 as I though that would cover new born as well. But apparently not! I have friends who had 8lb + babies and still said the 0-3 was too big. I have very few new born bits and mainly 0-3.
    Sorry if not much help - this is all very new to me too! x

    Hope you don't mind me stalking your post and replying :)

    My baby was 6lb 14oz born and her newborn stuff was massive she was in tiny baby for the first 5 weeks.

    My friend who had a 9lb baby said the newborn stuff was big on her baby too. Unless you or your partner are really tall I would get newborn.

    Goodluck

    xx

    I'm apparently gonna have a big baby so I put both nb and 0-3 in the bag, I'll be quite upset if he doesn't fit in nb tbh as I've bought quite alot of them.

    Best thing to do is look at the weight rather than just focusing on newborn or 0-3. I noticed that m&s newborn was different to sainsburys and mothercare was different again. I have about 4 different sizes for newborn! I'll be taking the larger, more generous newborn sizes as well as a few of the "normal" newborn just incase!

    i got all 0-3 months last time because my family have biggish babies, then my 11lb 6onz baby came out! lol i only have 0-3 this time too

    my friend was told her baby would be big and he came out tiny and none of the 0-3 fit him at all! at least buy one pack of newborn sleepsuits and that way if baby is small send dh out to go get a couple more packs or your mum xkx

    I have got a couple of newborn sizes but mostly got up to 1 month or 0-3 months as they grow so quickly! You will also find that you will get given sleep suits etc as gifts so I wouldn't bother getting too much stuff!

    ^ ^ I agree! i brought some stuff from sainsburys which looks much smaller than anything i have from asda or tesco =/

    I have a couple of newborn outfits (vests and sleepsuits) to take to hospital and also one 0-3 outfit & spares=/.

    My friends baby was really long and didnt fit into newborn becuase her legs were too long, saddd, i will be upset if she doesnt fit in the newborn stuff =[

    I have more 0-3 than newborn though, and definalty more 3-6 clothes!!:flower:

    Thanks everyone, I'm going to go out and get some newborn stuff too. I'd hate to take a bag full of suits which were too big! I have noticed the difference in weights from shop to shop on some of the things people have bought me already. I'll have to look around and get a selection, any excuse to shop!!
    This is my first baby so I'm a bit cluless but do they give you an idea of how big your baby will be before it's born? I think I'd need advanced warning if I was going to have a 12 or 11lber!! O:)

    The sizes vary so much from shop to shop too. I've packed tiny baby and newborn in my hospital bag. My DD was in tiny baby for 6 weeks (we were expecting a big baby but she was 6lbs 9ozs) so we had to send MiL out to buy tiny baby and more newborn stuff.

    Just to add to your thread if you don't mind, my LO was 12 days early and i'd packed newborn which was far too big (she was 6lb 11oz) and didn't go into 0-3 till she was around 5/6 weeks old. And she is long too! I would defo get some newborn suits & vests and some of the up to a month!
