    My dd was 6lb4 but dropped to under 6 and tiny baby fit well. For 5lbs id probably get a mixture of tiny baby and early baby.

    My twins were nearly 6 and 6 1/2 lbs so technically newborn size but we had to get them a bunch of premie for the first month or so. I had newborn take home outfits since US showed them well over 5lbs but they absolutely swam in them so my mom had to get them new outfits before we left. (They didn't wear the others for over a month.

    Easily done when your a first time mum! I just presumed 0-3 would fit... Didn't even think to check the sizes lol

    It depends on the clothing company, I find the sizes vary wildly. It's better to go by the weight on the label. My DD was 8lb 11oz and some newborn clothes would fit her, others didn't. I'm pretty sure my son will be smaller if he's not over due, but I've got a wide range between newborn and 0-3 just in case.

    I bought my stuff from Mothercare where tiny baby was (IIRC) up to about 7.5lb, I didn't buy any knowing DH, me and all my brothers were bigger than that.
    DD surprised me being just short of 7lb but was 50cm tall so at first she was a bit swamped in the newborn (up to 10.5lb) babygros I bought. They lasted about 5 weeks.
    The Mothercare 0-3 range went up to about 14.5lb or so, so absolutely enormous!
    I did buy a "new baby" size from elsewhere but it was too short at 45cm and still has the tag on.

    The confusing thing is is that some people call NEXT First size Newborn and then 1 month just a normal size where as I consider the First size to be Tiny baby and 1 month suitable from Newborn because of the weight on them compared to other shops. So I did make sure I checked so others make sure you do too :thumbup:

    Mine fit the up to 5lbs still when they were nearly 9lbs. I wouldn't say the weights are accurate either (though mine may just have more muscle mass than normal making them heavier as one was holding his upper body up on his own at birth).
