  • Who knows. I always packed a preemie, newborn and 0-3 month outfit. Ds was 8.1 and fit into preemie, dd was 8.2 and fit into newborn... Better safe than sorry!

  • You never really know till they are born what they will fit in. Bring a few different things. One of my sons didnt fit in anything I brought so I ended up bringing him home in the little tshirt they provide at the hospital. He didn't know any different lol

  • You never know! I had 2 that wore preemie or newborn and 1 that wore 0-3 mos! So my cousin always bought a coming home outfit while I was still at the hospital. It was kinda her thing by the third, lol. She was darn proud of it too (she bought all 3 of the girls their coming home outfits)

  • my first two were 7#8 and 7#1 and they fit into preemie! My youngest was 8#2 and she fit into newborn. I would consider what you were and what the daddy was at birth, your baby will likely take after one of you, but if you go with a gown, it's gonna be a good fit! Love those things!

  • I would say newborn. I had 0-3 months and the clothes fell right off of him. I had my mom go all the way home for a different outfit. I love her, she was such a trooper lol..
