Re: S/O Newborn outfits...

  • The outfit we have is newborn and says up to 7 lbs. If Sheacox's prediction of this one being 8lbs4oz is right, Baby might be naked! Stick out tongue

  • It depends on the brand. It usually says on the tag. Most of my outfits say 6 to 8 lbs.

    Conveniently, there is a bin sitting in my living room with clothes that I still have tags on because I don't intend to wash them.

    Carter's newborn outfit [onesie and pants] says 5 to 8lbs, up to 21.5".

    Old Glory onesies [Wal Mart] say 5.5 to 7.5lbs, up to 21".

    It varies by brand, most are 5-8lbs. The way a brand fits though matters too.

  • I find that a size is outgrown by length and not weight.  My son was and still is a shorty so sizes last forever, even if he's beyond the suggested weight.

    lol. DD wasnt even 9lbs and never fit in NB clothes. Leave the tags on, I tell ya! Or go exchange them for 3m stuff, then you're guaranteeing they'll get use.

    Yeah, I didn't even bother with the newborn and just picked up a bunch of 3M. Of course I determined this with a very scientific method.

    *Hold out onesie. Look at it. Look at myself. Look at my partner.*

    "Our kid isn't ever going to fit in that!"

    I was about 8 and a half pounds and that's what they are predicting so far for this little one too so I felt pretty comfortable skipping most of the newborn stuff. Now watch her come early at 6 pounds :) But better too large than too small, it's not like they'll be tripping over long pant legs at this point!

  • My LO was 7 lbs 13 oz at birth. She was back at birth weight within a week. She was 21.5 inches. She wore NB clothes for several months. It all depends on the baby. She was still wearing 03 month pants at eight months.
  • I think the length is important, too.  DS #1 was 21.5" at birth and he grew like a weed.  He was in 3-6 month clothes by four weeks old because he was so long.  They were baggy on him but we had no choice because he couldn't straighten his legs in 0-3 month clothes!
