My son is 4 now and I can remember that he wore newborn for a long time!
I think I have like 5 onesies and a handful of sleepers but we have quite a few sizes of 0-3 months.

Wyatt James born 6/15/13 8lbs 6oz 21in
I had gestational diabetes and they said Jack would be a big baby. He came out 6 lbs, 14 oz and dropped down to 6lbs 2 oz. His newborn clothes were huge on them. He is 7 weeks and just now, starting to grow out of them. His 0-3 stuff was huge and actually now is still too big.
I had to run out and buy newborn pants for him. You can get away with 0-3 onesies but not pants if he is a small baby. I suggest a 3 pack of newborn pants. On Amazon, they have a blue, grey and camo set. This lasted him good. The sleepers I never used because we swaddle in his onesies.
Well, we had a ton of 3-12 month stuff from my shower and my SIL (from my nephews) because my LO was measuring in the 95th percentile in weight (they were talking 10+ lbs!). However.... he decided to come 7 weeks early at 5 lbs 10 oz (which is still pretty big for a 33 weeker!). We had nothing to put him in, so I had to go and buy a bunch of NB stuff for him to wear.
So I'd get a couple outfits, onesies and sleepers - but I agree with the PP - it all depends on the baby. LO is just now fitting into 0-3, 3 month stuff, and it still a tad big. His NB stuff is too small now (he's 15 weeks and 9 1/2 lbs now)
ChristyD6:I'm on the other end. DD was 6lb 15oz at birth and lost down to 6 6. Some NB clothes are too big but the ones I bought at a consignment sale are perfect bc they have shrunk a little. We have enough onesies but only a few sleepers and I want more.
rcantor:You can always buy more after baby gets here. My husband made a Target run the night we got home because my daughter came a little early and ruined our plans to pick up more clothes.
this. As long as you have a few outfits and sleepers in NB size, I wouldn't run out and buy a lot more. Every baby is different, wait until baby comes, then if you need more, just get them as the need arises.
