    I've just sorted through all the clothes we have for baby. Most being 0-3m upwards.

    I have somehow accumulated 32 x short sleeve bodysuits - But I understand these go under baby's clothing? (i.e like a vest type purpose.)

    We only have a few sleepsuit/romper style pieces, which I'm not sure whether there's a difference between what you'd use in the day compared to night or not?

    Will you dress baby whilst in newborn in anything other that the long sleeve and long leg one piece style sleepsuits? If so, what?

    How many sleepsuits will you buy in newborn? (Think they go up to 9-11ib ish)

    Thanks in advance, hope this post makes sense !!

    Thanks all, I think I'll just get a five pack, plus what I have and that should do.

    Will you put bodysuit/vest underneath?

    Do the sleepsuits cover both day and nightwear?

    Oh god. I got really bad.. Don't know if it's pregnancy brain but I picked up clothes, sleepsuits, bodyvests practically every day was going through them last night can't believe how much I actually got, you loose track. I'm not one of these organized mums - 6 of everything blah blah blah.. Last count of NB was about 20 sleep suits, 33 body vests, 10 outfits. i got 0-3, 3-6, 6-9 and little bit of 9-12.. I just lost count. Lol whatever she doesn't wear I'll probably charity shop them anyway. x x

    I can't count how many outfits I have. I mostly have onesies and sleepers. I don't put onesies under sleepers because I found them warm enough on their own. I know some people do though. I wanted a sleepsack made from cotton, and I would put a onesie under that not a sleeper, since they stay warm enough IMO. Since it will be hot outside and I will run the a/c, baby will probably be in sleepers in the house, and onesie and shorts or pants when we leave the house.

    I've not got that much in newborn, as baby probably won't be in them for long (glad I decided this now as I've been told baby is on the big side!). I think I have 5 newborn bodysuits and about 8-10 newborn sleepsuits. I then have 2 newborn outfits.

    The rest of the stuff I have is 0-3 months - about 30 bodysuits and probably about the same number of sleep suits. Only one outfit so far in 0-3 months.

    I plan on baby being in bodysuits/sleepsuits day and night whilst at home, probably for the first few weeks. I'd like to dress baby in an outfit when going out - so we're taking one of the newborn ones to the hospital to bring baby home in.

    I've been told you can never have enough body suits, as they sometimes go through 3 - 4 a day. Generally you'd have a bodysuit on baby underneath their sleepsuit. Although if it's hot you might just have baby in a bodysuit during the day when you're in the house.

    We don't know whether we're having a boy or a girl yet, so we're planning on stocking up on little outfits after baby is born.

    We haven't bought that much either - but I have a very eager mum who hasn't been able to help herself. I had to tell her to stop when we got to 30 bodysuits in 0-3 months. So what did she do - she started buying 3-6 months instead!! :haha:

    Aww those pics are cute. So, the top pic are what I'm calling bodysuits - you would have baby in these under their clothes be it a sleep suit or outfit and not just on it's own, kind of like their underwear ? Sorry to be so dim ! Don't want to take baby out half dressed without realising !

    Actually I don't put them under clothes the onsies I just use when we are home... Since it is summer here in texas I don't want to over heat baby... If it was winter it would be a different story though. :)

    Thanks honesty, it will be summer here when baby comes, but uk summer is no doubt very different to yours ! At least I know I can get away with just putting bodysuit on baby if weather is rather hot

    It's so confusing isn't it! It took me a while to realise what the difference is between vests and body suits and body suits and sleepsuits.... Doh! I've also been feeling really confused about how much baby should wear - for a UK August baby, I'm thinking a vest under a sleepsuit and then with a cardigan on top if it was a bit cooler. Does that sound right or too hot or not enough?? Help! If we did have a heatwave(!) I was thinking I'd lose the sleepsuit indoors at least and just put on a little bodysuit instead. Also what is better, a vest that is just a top or a vest that has the bottom bit with poppers? Sorry to hijack the thread but these are things that I've been wondering about for a while now....! I feel like such an underprepared mum!
