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?

DD could have come home in preemie clothes, the newborn outfit I took to the hospital was HUGE on her! DS1 on the other hand barely fit the newborn outfit and could have worn 0-3 months. I'll bring a newborn and a 0-3 month outfit this time for DS2.

Why not just pack the newborn and 0-3 months outfit. Baby clothes are tiny and won't take up much space in your bag ;)

I would just go with newborn unless you have larger babies. My kids were all 8 1/2 and still fit newborn sizes fine.

My first born weighed 6lbs 6oz, 19 inches long, he came home in a preemie outfit even though he was full term, my second son weighed 6lbs 5oz, 17 inches long and came home in a newborn also full term... Wait till baby is born and have someone bring the right size...

My babies are between 8 and 9 pounds. 8lb 15oz, 9lb 2oz and 8lb 6oz. We bring them home in 0-3. They are chunky and finding newborn outfits to fit them nicely is hard!

We did pack newborn and 0-3 months outfits for babies 1 and 2. But for #3 and this one coming in May, just 0-3!
