How dumb is this?

i went to walmart and was looking at baby clothes and they had a Baby's 1st birthday 0-3months, why would a 1 year old need a size 0-3. Who thought of that and why?

  • Well, I think it's probably pretty rare that any one year old would fit into a 0-3 month outfit. 0-3 months is for like 10-12lbs I think.

    I agree OP. That is dumb.

  • There are babies who are 1 year old who are that small, is one pretty good reason. Not all babies grow according to the size of clothing their age matches.

  • That does sound dumb. I've seen that at the WM here.

  • I have a friend whose daughter is 3 months younger then my 18 month old twin girls she was born 2 months early, has a feeding tube and several heart conditions. She is still in newborn clothing. Think about those who are less lucky then you are when it comes to the health of their children OP. Thank you.

  • I suppose you could argue that birthday year 0 really is their "1st" birthday. :)

  • Oh go cry us a river Anon. It's clearly not the norm.

  • Not the norm... but there are clothing options for those babies out there.

    When my youngest turned 1, he was in 3-6 month sized clothing. Being able to have something special for him was nice.

  • BridgetC140 you clearly need to google how many preemies are born in your country every year. It might do you some good to know what you are talking about before you say anything. Just some advice.

  • I know preemies are born, but they are usually way above 10lbs by one year. THANKS

  • The norm? Not at all thank God. Dumb? Not by any means either. As the mother of preemies I can agree that it is nice to have the same cute clothes available in a smaller size, sorry if it bothers ya'll though.
