How long were your LO's in Newborn Clothes?

I have an 18 month old daughter who was born 10 weeks early and wore preemie and newborn clothes for months, and I'm expecting a son now, and they are doing interventions to make sure we get to at least 37 weeks. My question is, how long were your babies in newborn clothes? Is it worth it to stock up on plenty newborn or just a fair few and get the rest in 0-3 months? my son is due feb 25th so it will shortly start getting warmer where I live after my son comes.

Thanks mamas :)

Just buy one or two nb onsies and get the rest in 0-3. My daughter wore NB for less than two weeks so I just bought my boys 0-3 and skipped nb completely:)

My son was small. Not premi small, but in NB diapers for a month or so. I mainly dressed him in the gowns w/onsies & long socks(I worked midnights and he was born in the wonter so this made it easier on me.)

My son was 7lbs 10oz and he wore them for a about 3 weeks...

DD was 6lbs 6oz and wore them for a little over a month. I only had a few NB outfits though. I bought mostly 0-3 and 3 month clothes.

My DD was 9lbs 3oz so she wore NB for about 2 weeks. With this one that is due soon I got one pack of long sleeve onesies and 3 sleepers and 2 outfits. I don't expect him to be as big but still.

Oh geez, my dd was born at 37 weeks and weighed 5lb 4 oz.  She started out in preemies and was in newborn for quite a while.  I just dont remember how long exactly, she's 9 now.

My daughter was in them for a little over 2 and a half months, but she was only 5lbs 8oz, she wore preemie as long as the length would allow, which wasnt long, so nb was big on her until she was 2 months old, then i had to go to 0-3 mo again bc of the length.
