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?

My dd was 7 pounds 3 ounces at birth and went home in a newborn size.  My ds was 9 pounds 12 ounces at birth and went home in a 0-3 month outfit.

Ds came home in nb. He was 6.5 at birth but 5.15 at discharge. I'm taking a nb and a 0-3. Honestly, it's not like they take up a lot of space, so pack and extra just in case! Why not? LOL

All of my babies wore preemie.

#1 Was born 7 lbs 6 oz and 20 1/2 inches. He was 6 lbs 11 oz when we brought him home. He wore preemie for about a week.

#2 Was born 6 lbs 5 oz and 19 inches long. He was 6 lbs when we bought him home (Preemie clothes were actually too big) He wore preemie for a month

#3 Was born 7 lbs 9 oz and 21 inches long. She was 6 lbs 11 oz when we brought her home. She wore preemie about a week.

my son was 6lb10oz, and he came home wearing preemie. all the newborn ones were too large. we ended up in the hoppital for 5 days, and by the time we left, he was 6.4, so preemie worked well. but 5 days was so much more than i planned for! I hadn't brought that many clothes for him to wear. so plan ahead!

And, 0-3mo is 12+lbs, so its unlikely you'll need it.

My girls were both over 9lbs...they outgrew newborn size in the womb, lol! However, different companies have different cuts (linda like women's clothing) so you just never know!
