Did any of you use clothes that were size newborn? I have only 0-3 months sized clothes. I was wondering if I should get a few sleepers in newborn or if the 0-3 months would be OK. TIA
my dd can still fit into newborn clothes at 6 weeks old.
i would buy a few onesies/sleeper on clearance at target just to get you
throuh the 1st month.
My baby was 7 lb. 6 oz, too, when he was born and I only had one newborn outfit, his coming home outfit. I put him in 0-3 month clothes right away. They were a little big, but he basically was in undershirts and swaddled or in sleepers so it wasn't a big deal. He grew super fast and already outgrew 0-3 clothes by nearly 2 mo. So I'm really glad we didn't waste money on newborn clothes. They would have lasted him two weeks.
It's hard to say because they're all different I would get a few and see what you end up needing. You or your husband can always go to the store if you need more, rather than wasting money if you don't need them.
DD is still in newborn sizes, she was 7lbs. 4oz. 20.5 inches. Here is my view on newborn sizes....
Carters = great clothing, pretty much true to size. She's still in Carters, they are a bit big length wise, but great fitting everywhere else.
Target brand (Circo I think?) = their newborn sizes are huge!!! DD swims in them....onesies and pants! They are more like 0-3 month, even though they are marked NB.
I can see DD growing, but she's filling out....not really growing length wise. We would have been lost if we didn't have newborn sizes! So yes, get a few things! We have 4 sleepers and bought about 6 Carters pants and a couple packs of Carters onesies to match the pants, and that's all we need, works great! GL!
We didn't use hardly any of the newborn clothes... but DD was 8lbs 4oz when she was born. There is nothing wrong with using 0-3 months from the start... they might be a little big if you have a smaller baby but that's OK.
If you get newborn clothes I would recommend not taking the tags off everything until you have the baby and make sure your LO will fit in the clothes. DD had a lot of clothes that she never wore but I had already taken the tags off and washed them so I couldn't return them for the appropriate size.
