How many newborn size outfits do you have?

I had my shower yesterday, and finally started sorting everything by size. I have quite a few newborn outfits - probably about 15 or so. But I have no idea if DD will even fit into NB stuff, or for how long. I'm hesitant to take the tags off and wash everything in case I don't need them. 

Should I just get a few NB outfits ready and play it by ear? NB only goes up to about 8 lbs, right?

Re: How many newborn size outfits do you have?

  • We've got only 1 newborn sized outfit, a onesie my in-laws got LO.

    We're gonna bring it to the hospital just in case he's little enough to wear it, but we're highly doubting it.

    Keep the tags on them.  Sizes from different companies range so much, DS can fit into some 12 month items still and others he needs a 24 month.  It really depends on your LO and the clothing.

    Right now (pre-shower) we have about 38 NB through 0-3 month outfits.  I doubt we'll use them all and I doubt all of them will fit, but I feel like we're at least prepared.

    I only have this many because I went to a community garage sale and there were tons of gender neutral outfits that looked brand new.  I couldn't resist.

  • Last week I had an U/S and they estimate LO to be about 5 lbs 2 oz now, but I've heard that any estimates/predictions can be grossly inaccurate. I wish there was a way to know! I was 5 lbs 15 oz at birth and DH was 8 lbs 6 oz, so who knows?!

  • I have none and probably wont get any most of my friends know that I wont get much use out of newborn clothes.

  • We dont have any because DS was 9.1 (2 wks early) and DD is also measuring big, so everyone knows that we wont use them.

  • We have zero NB size outfits.  If we end up with a kid less than 8lbs I will be completely and utterly shocked.

  • We have about 10 total, including onesies and sleepers. I figure that will get us thru about 5 days after which we will reevaluate our needs. I just don't think that this baby is going to be very big, I am a smallish person and have gained less then 20 lbs so I think we will be in nn size for a few weeks. I also can't stand baggy baby clothes so that is a factor as well.

  • Like 2 but I hate gender neutral so I am buying more after the baby is born. I have smaller babies..around 7lbs at birth and less by the time we leave the hospital. I think both of my girls wore newborn clothing for about 3wks. Carters runs big IME will gerber runs a little smaller. You never know how big DC will be at and after birth so I would have some NB on hand just in case..

  • I bought two newborn outfits for pictures - everything else is 0-3 months. DS #1 was out of newborn outfits in less than five weeks, and we have a lot of stuff from him that he never wore. We'll re-use those until this baby outgrows them.

  • I would keep the tags on all your NB outfits. Maybe wash a couple to take to the hospital but I hear most babies grow out of them in a week or two. I have about 5 NB onesies.

  • A garbage bag full!  We got a ton of hand me downs from my SIL. I have 5 bags of close all less than 12 mo in size. It's So hard not to buy more. 
  • This baby has very few clothes at this point in general. I think I have 2-3 in newborn size. DS wore newborn for 3 weeks or so, but I still won't take tags off of too many things before she's born bc you just never know.

  • I have 6 NB onesies and 2 NB outfits/sleepers.

    6 0-3mo onesies and 7 0-3 outfits/sleepers.

    I'm kinda freaking out.

    I have about 6 newborn sleepers and around 20 short sleeve onesies and 15 pairs of pants. The onesies and pants are all borrowed though.

    I would like to have a few more sleep sack style sleepers too...did I describe that right??

    I'm behind on 0-3 and 3-6 month stuff though and need to go shopping soon...

  • I don't have any. 0-3 months is the smallest I have. My daughter was a big baby, so I am anticipating this one to be on the larger size as well. And they grow so fast anyway. In my experience newborn sizes don't last. At all.

  • We have about 10 onesies and a couple sleepers. We probably won't get much use out of them, if at all. LO's already estimated to be close to 5lbs.

  • We have I think 2 shirts and a pair of pants that are NB sized and were used (received as part of a box of stuff). MiL bought 1 or 2 NB outfits this weekend and I'm leaving them with the tags on so I can try to return them if (when) she can't fit into any NB stuff. DS never wore NB sizes.

  • I have 2 NB sized dresses for bring home outfits, 1 NB sleep and play and 2 pairs of NB pants.  That's all I'll need, the pants are mainly for when we got to the DR's office for visits in the first weeks and she'll just wear a plain white side snap kimono shirt with those.  In fact, I plan to keep her in a kimono shirt and diaper pretty much the first weeks swaddled anyway.

    I have (3) 0-3 outfits, 4 pairs of (0-3) pants and a pack of (0-3) colored long-sleeved onesies.  Otherwise, I've got the basic white stuff leftover from DS in all sizes and shirt sleeve lengths.

  • I have probably 15 total.  I bought one (but still have the tags on it) was given one at my shower and was given tons of brand new NB sized things from my mom's co-worker who had a 10 lb. baby.  I'm going to keep the tags on the one outfit I bought until he's born and see how big he is.

    I mainly have 0-3. In NB I have about 3 sleepers, 8-10 onesies/shirts, 4-5 pants, 2 rompers.
