  • Honestly you will only need a few. They outgrow them so fast! My son had some outfits he never even got to wear.

  • To be honest, I don't see a reason to buy newborns unless you feel you will have an especially small baby. 0-3 months is usually all you'll need... My kids were generally out of those even by the time they were 1 month old...

  • It depends how big the baby is when he/she is born. My DD was 8lbs 7oz and 20 1/2 inches. She wore newborn for probably 3-4 weeks.

  • You really only need a couple of newborn outfits.. Most babies wear 0-3 months right away..

  • You may not need newborn outfits, but it is going to depend how big your baby is when he/she is born. Mine were all over 8 pounds so none of them needed newborn sizes. Congrats!
