April lurker-newborn sizes?

congrats to everyone's LOs! I was wondering how much did your LO weigh at birth if they ever/still fit in NB sizes!?

Re: April lurker-newborn sizes?

  • My LO was 10 lbs 8 oz. she never fit in newborn. They expected her to be 8 lbs so they were a little off! Haha
  • DS was 6lbs 15oz and 20" NB fit him a bit loose and now he's up to 8lbs 5oz and his NB stuff still fits but I can tell he will outgrow it soon.

    my son was 7lbs 2 oz, 20 inches and is 3.5 weeks old right now. he is still fitting in newborn clothes. we just ran out of newborn diapers 2 days ago and have been using size 1 and they are fitting him better so we arent going to buy any more newborn diapers...but he definitely needed them in the beginning, especially because when we came home from the hospital he was 6lbs 11oz.  For reference...we are using Pampers swaddlers diapers. He fits into carters newborn perfectly fine...Gerber runs smaller so those are getting tight-i probably will put them away in another week or 2.
  • DS was 7lbs 10 oz and 19 inches long. It took him 3 weeks to outgrow his newborn clothes and diapers. However, if you are Canadian, Superstore brand Joe clothing size 0-3 months fit him well from week 1 and still does.

  • 8 lbs (even) 20in - newborn fits fine still, but the 0-3mo fit okay too, just a little baggie.  With DS1, the preemie even fit and he was 8lb6oz, 21in.

  • DS was 10 lbs. 3 oz., 22 inches. He is wearing 3 month stuff. It's big, but the newborn stuff doesn't fit.
  • 8 lb 1 oz. unsure of current weight (probably close to birthweight), but they won't be fitting for more than 2-3 more weeks, I'd guess.

  • DD weighed 9lbs even. She fit in Carter's NB footed sleepers and onesies for about 3 weeks. Never fit into NB size diapers, went straight into size 1s.

    ETA she was 21" long at birth, and was back up to birth weight 5 days postpartum.

  • LO was 7lbs 2 oz and 20 inches. At her 4-week check up last week, she was 8lbs 2oz and 22 inches - very long and thin. She is still in NB sizes and they are fitting pretty well. Some of her sleep and plays got retired because they were too short, but her onesies and most of her Carter's sleep and plays (all she wears) fit fine.

  • DD was 6 lbs 6 oz and 18.5 inches long at birth. She's almost 5 weeks old now. At her one month appointment she was up to 7 lbs 13 oz and 21 inches long. I would say that lengthwise, she grew out of her newborn sleepers about a week ago. The 0 to 3 month stuff is baggy on her, but the length is pretty much perfect. Weird how much it can vary. She still easily fits in newborn diapers.

  • Born at 39 weeks at 7 lbs 14 oz. and 20.5 inches. Down to 7 lbs 1 oz at her lowest. She will be six weeks tomorrow and is about 9.5 pounds. NB diapers still fit well. NB clothes fit, but are getting too short. 03 month clothes are HUGE.


  • LO was 8 lbs, 12.5 oz at birth, 20 3/4 inches long, and he fit into most newborn size until just the past few days. He got weighed today and he's 10 lbs, 13 oz, and 22 inches long. No wonder the newborn is too small! BTW, he's almost 1 month old now.

  • LO was 6lbs, 2weeks old 6lbs 3oz.  Newborn clothes are big on him.  He has a preemie out fit that works, or I wash the nb clothes in hot water to shrink.

    7lbs 15 oz, was 8lbs 12 oz at 2 week check up. He can fit into most of his newborn stuff. He is chubby but not long so I think he will be in newborn pants and 0-3 mo shirts here pretty soon. He is three weeks today and wore a newborn outfit, the pajamas are a little too tight though.
