Questions About Newborn Baby Clothes Size

Sandy asks…

How long did your baby wear size newborn clothes for?

I’m thinking my daughter will wear size newborn for about another week and a half making her a few weeks old.

Adam answers:

A couple weeks is pretty common. My kids were at the opposite ends. Lol My son was 7lbs 12 oz at birth but chunked out fast and was wearing 6-9 months by 3 months or so. My daughter was 5 lbs 13 oz and in preemie clothes for the first few weeks, then newborn for about a month. It varies so much for each baby.

Mary asks…

newborn baby clothes size?

buying clothes for an unborn baby. i’m not sure of his weight or size. should i buy the 0-3 months baby clothes? what if its a big baby, will 0-3 months clothes still fit him? or should i buy the 3-6 months sizes? how many should I get?

since babies outgrow their clothes in weeks, what is the average amount to spent on baby clothes.

what other clothing do babies need the most besides ‘onesies’?

Adam answers:

I am pregnant also and have thought of having the same dilemma. I don’t want to buy things that are too small for the baby, but yet I want to have a good start on buying things so I don’t have to worry about having the money for it after the baby gets here. One suggestion I like is to look on Ebay. I’ve heard that you can get really good deals on virtually new baby clothes at just a fraction of the regular cost. Plus, it comes to your house! What could beat that? And, if you’re not paying as much for it, it won’t hurt the purse as much if the baby doesn’t fit in it or if he outgrows it too quickly.

As for a diaper suggestion….I would get a gift card or something at walmart and fill it up as much as possible before the baby gets here. That way, you don’t risk having stocked up on too many diapers that the baby won’t fit in.

Good luck!

Michael asks…

what size clothes should I buy my newborn baby boy?

I have bought a mixture of size 0-3 and newborn….What size is best to buy 0-3 months or newborn or should I just buy a bit of both…He seems hes going to be an avarage size baby 7-8 pounds…I am currently 27 weeks and not to big 🙂


Adam answers:

Some 0-3 month clothing might fit him depending on his size. Babies grow fast and unless he is small he will outgrow that clothes really fast. From working with newborns I have always seen that it is best to start off with 2 month clothing because it will last just a little longer. If your baby weights 8 pounds or more and is 21 inches I think it is just best to start on 2 month clothing. If you are using disposable diapers he will outgrow stage 1 diapers really fast too. A 5-7 pound baby will fit into 0-3 month clothing so I guess it’s best to just have a mix.

Ken asks…

How long was your baby in newborn size clothes?

I’m not sure how many I will need.
What was their birth weight?

Adam answers:

My daughter was 7lb 1 and wore her 11lbs clothes until she was about 4 weeks old. Then she wore her 0-3 months clothes until she was about 5months. The jumped straigh into 6-9month in about the space of a week lol. She just had a massive growth spurt so we had lots of 3-6months clothes that went unworn.

Betty asks…

when did your baby outgrow newborn size clothes.?

my son is two months old. he is 9pounds 12oz, and 22.5in long.

he still fits newborn clothes, and 0-3 is too big for him.
a few newborn outfits are now to small for him, but most of them fit perfectly.. why is that? when did you baby start wearing 0-3 months and how big were they?

Adam answers:

My baby had her check up an shots yesterday, she is a day older then your son,.. She is now 12lbs and 24 inches lol.. She was only 6.12lbs and 18 inches when she was born, i swear all she does is eat an eat.. Ugh.. She now fits well in the 0-3 months an some are too small, unless i jus shrunk them which happens often :/ My son was a chubbster as well though.

My friends son was born on the 12th of November, he is 8lbs and 20 inches… He is still in newborn clothes, and ooh so cute!

I figured since she was a girl she would grow slower lol, so i bought tons an tons of newborn clothes, some i never got to even wear on her.. Your son falls in the average weight an height scale, which is perfectly on track 🙂

Oh yea, i sooo wanted your sons birthday for my daughter lol!! I was even hoping labor would go long haha 11/11 is a great birthday 🙂
