  • Mine was never in newborns. Both were in 3 month old clothes from birth.
    If you are going to be a mom soon I would suggest buying only one or two 0-3 month clothes before your baby is born. They normally grow incredibly fast and you can always get some more if you need them. I would concentrated on the larger sizes unless you know your child is going to be very small.

  • Born at eight pounds. Newborn clothes lasted till the three week growth spurt. I don't remember his weight at that point, only that there were unworn clothes. Including a cute pair of OshKosh booties a neighbor gave me; his feet were born too big for them!

  • How much they weigh depends on you and your husband's genetics and your nutrition and prenatal care.

  • About 10 days... The older two were 22 inches long. One was 8lbs5oz and one was 9lbs 1oz. My youngest was a schrimp and 19 3/4 inches and 8lbs1oz. He was in newborn clothes for around 4-5 weeks. The older two were skinny...just Looonnnggg! So the clothes were baggy, but not long enough.
