So, for those of you that have children already, what is the difference between 0-3 month and newborn sizing in baby clothes? I found a funny onesie that I want to order, but was confused when I saw the sizes listed.
Is there any difference?
Will baby #3 be another girl?
It depends on the brand too, I think. Some brands run big while others run small.
I always think if you are ordering online that a 3-6mo. size is the way to go.
Yes, after the baby is born they are generally to small for 0-3 months (it's more based on weight). NB stuff is usually for 6 - 10 lbs and 0 - 3 is for 10 - 15 lbs. However just like adult clothing every store/line is a little different. DD still has some 18 month stuff that she fits in and some 24 month stuff she is to big for....there is no "uniform" fitting guide.
However, I wouldn't but very much newborn stuff. Generally they are only in it for a few weeks and you will get TONS as gifts. You are better off buying stuff from 6- 9 and up.
agreed- newborn is smaller, but I wouldn't buy much of it in advance. some babies never wear newborn, some only for a few weeks, or like our DS, he wore it for months.
brand also makes a HUGE difference. gerber runs smaller while carter is bigger. off brands in my experience have a tendency to run small. at 3 months DS wore a 12 month NFL brand jersey (it was a little big on him mind you, but he wasn't swimming in it) while he was wearing 0-3 everything else.
