What size to bring baby home in?

Posted by   + Show Post
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?

All of mine came home in newborn. It was a little big on the third (6.12) and barely fit the 4th (9 1)

That is a good plan! My first was 9lbs 10.8oz and came home in a 3 month outfit. My second was 8lbs 6oz and came home in newborn clothes.

It's funny you posted this because a friend of mine kept telling me to bring a preemie size outfit and I kept insisting it would be way too small. Well, my son ended up being just over 7 lbs. and 20 inches long (born at 40+1). I brought three different sizes with me (same as you posted) and he wore newborn size home although it was a little too big! He even had to wear preemie diapers. Go figure. I'd say just bring newborn and 0-3 months. I think 3 months would more than likely be waaay too big.

My second son weighed 8lbs 13oz and was in newborn for the first month. Second was7lbs 5oz and nb were loose on him but worked for a long time. If you want to be on the safe side id bring nb and 0-3 most likely nb will be fine

I would bring all three, just in case. my NB is just about 4 weeks old and is still in NewBorn size outfits. 0-3 months is waaaayyy too baggy on him!

You never know how much he is actually going to weigh!
