Quoting KaityBoo:" my son was 9 13 at birth, so we used NO newborn clothes, I just used a ton of regular short sleeved onesies ... [snip!] ... a lot. I had gotten a lot of free clothes from a patient so I just used what I had and what I'd gotten at the baby shower."See this is kind of encouraging because some people told me their "9 or 10 lb" babies used NB clothes for months and I was so confused. But I have some hand me downs for that size, so I'm not sure. I might buy more but maybe I'll keep what I have and see how big she really is.
Quoting Lindsey nikole:" I'd get a few nrwborn clothes, just in case, just cuz they say he's going to be big doesn't mean he or she is"I might buy some. What's the biggest necessities? Like, more sleepers for sure I'd say, but more onesies? I just don't really know what they wear the most that young so until we see her I'll try not to get too much.
Quoting Lindsey nikole:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Lindsey nikole:</b>" I'd get a few nrwborn clothes, just in ... [snip!] ... is"</blockquote> We made the mistake of not getting any because they told us he'd be a bigger baby. He was only 6lbs"That's what I'm worried about. I'm just so confused. She's measuring really big and around 2 weeks ahead. But I know that isn't conclusive either.
Quoting KaityBoo:" it's funny because there were weeks that Eli would measure a week or two behind, then the day I delivered ... [snip!] ... when he came out the doc said "wow, that's a big baby, where were you keeping him?!" I don't think docs ever really know lol"Oh wow haha. That scares me. Only because they already estimate big, with the U/S measurements and weight and all. So I'm now picturing them estimating 8.5 and her being like 10+
Quoting LoveMyBubbaBoy:" DH and I got enough for LO to have enough for me to wash in a load of laundry for him. Lol. He was 7lbs ... [snip!] ... and wore it for 4 weeks. If he would have been smaller, I might have considered buying more but he lived in footy pajamas. lol."Haha okay, so mostly like the sleepers? Lol I'm so new to this, whenever I've been around babies the clothes were there I just dressed them
Quoting LoveMyBubbaBoy:" Lol. I didn't want a ton either and my 4 month old is our first. I did learn really fast that there are ... [snip!] ... they made the diaper changes SO much easier at night. She's going to be tiny no matter how big she is though. lol. "Haha okay, so basically I'll just stock up on those, simple enough lol. She probably won't be going anywhere much so I won't need anything else except maybe pants, since she has some long sleeve onesies for if we do go out. And good I have some gowns, I heard they make changes easier
