    Hi Girls,

    I was wondering what sizes are you buying your baby clothes in?

    I bought loads from Mothercare and Next in their Newbaby range but a family member just told me that it will only fit for a week or two.

    I have to admit they are quite small but I thought they'd last at least 1 to 2 month. :wacko:
    I have been told to expect a big baby...

    Is it better to buy 0-3months items? If yes how many newborn clothes did you buy? And most importantly what?
    Thanks

    Most stuff I have bought in 0-3 but I bought a few sleep suits vests and a going home outfit in new born too, just in case.... I tried not to buy too much in newborn because as you say, she might never actually be in them...

    I brought all 0-3 with my first.
    She was 8lb 3oz and everything was massive on her!
    Had to go out and buy some newborn clothes, but she only fitted into those things for a month at the very very most.
    I don't feel any wiser buying for the 2nd time round as 2nd babies are usually bigger.

    I would say 3mos or 0-3mos is a good size. I have three outfits that are newborn size that were left over from my daughter, but like your family member said she only was in newborn size a couple weeks and she was 7lbs 5oz when born. She was in 3mos sizes for about 2 mos then was in 3-6mos and 6mos sizes for about three to four months. My nephew was a 10lbs 4oz baby and he was only in newborn outfits for less than a week, and 3mos size for about a month before he was in the 6mos size. So if you are already measuring big, I would buy the 3mos or 3-6mos sizes and only one or two outfits that are newborn size.

    Yeah... I guess I should go out and exchange some items for the 0-3Months sizes. That seem more sensible...

    Thank you for your input girls. Saved me quite a few pounds! X

    Also just be aware that the next clothes are generally much smaller than mothercare. I have newborn sizes in both and the next stuff is very small in comparison. The next 'up to 1 month' is nearer the size of mothercare newborn. But unfortunately they will only fit baby for a couple of weeks at the most but 0-3 can be too big in the first few weeks xx
