I'm due March 30th and have 3 different coming home outfits picked out - 1 in newborn size, 1 in 0-3 months and 1 in 3 months. I have no idea how big or small he'll be, but I just wanted to see how big your babies were and what size clothing you brought them home in?

My Baby was in preemie size even though she was full term! I would say take the newborn and 0-3 and you should be okay! :)

I would say go by your last ultrasound or weight they give your for the baby how long they think he will be. My son was 22'' long and almost a 9 pounder so when I came to the hospital with a newborn outfit DH had to run to baby gap and request an outfit still in the plastic in size 3-6 mths because nothing else fit. I would say bring the 0-3 and 3-6 and decide from those newborn outfits usually are too small for long babies

I would bring the newborn outfit, and a 0-3 month outfit to the hospital :) 

When we had our son, I thought I had a newborn outfit, but aparently I only had the 0-3 outfit in the bag... Luckily my older brother bought my son an adorable outfit the day he was born and that is what he wore :)

All three of mine were in newborn for a while.  My daughter will be three weeks old on Wednesday and still in newborn.

My son was in preemie for a while full-term.  He was only 18.5"!! Also under 6 pounds when we left the hospital.  Newborn was super baggy on him until he grew in length and in weight lol.
