    I was also told to go straight to 000 (x3) but glad I didn't as both my boys (7lb11oz & 8lb) were in 0000 (x4) for at least a couple of months, I'm only packing 0000 for the hospital.

    My ds was 4kg at birth & was in 0000 for a few weeks (?4), but then moved from 000 to 00 at about 2.5 months. We had very few 0000's and had to buy lots when he was born.

    This time around I got lots of 000's and a few 0000's to add to the collection of heaps of gender neutral 0000's that I had already. My dd was in 0000's for about 10 days (she was 4.4kg at birth) and then out of 000 by 2 months. Lots of my 000's didn't get worn, or if they did it was only once! In retrospect she had WAY too many 000's. She's now 4 months old and just moving from 00 to 0! She's still on the 90th percentile, so she's a big bubba

    DD (born 7lb 10oz/3.47kg) didn't need any 00000 clothes...got told I shouldn't get any 0000 clothes either but glad I had them as DD used them for a good month before going into 000...
    Like previous post - had waaaay to much 000 clothes though...didn't get to use them all lol! DD is a tall chubby bubby & is starting into size 0 now at almost 5months.

    Yep, 0000s will be sufficient... DD2 was 6lb 1oz (2.7kg) and would have fit 00000s but it wasn't worth going to get some as she quickly fitted the 0000s. She has only just recently gone into 000s at around 4.5 - 5 months!

    When DS was born we put him in mainly 0000, but he was born in july and he was a tall baby, so he quickly didn't fit into them in the leg/feet bits. If you are putting bubs in summer outfits then 0000's will be good for longer, but if you need full wondersuits with the feet you might need to go up a size sooner.

    I have three girls, two of them were both your average between 7lb and 8lb+ babies. Both pretty much just went straight into 000. My other DD was just 5lb when born and she was in 5 x 0 for a very long time, it seemed like it was a year before she finally went into 000.

    My advice would be have some of what you already have and then see what happens after bub is born. Like someone said before, sometimes they say your bub is a particular size and he/she can come out very different.

    My 2nd DD was 5lb (full term) and with my 3rd DD they also said they thought she was basically the same size as my 2nd DD, oh no, she was another 2lb+ heavier lol. Needless to say, thanks to having 3 DD's, my 2nd girls baby clothes all become doll clothes

    I find the Target sizing to be smaller than others. My son's legs were too long for the Target jumpsuits 0000 with feet built in so I had to cut the feet off the clothing at the hospital. He wasn't particularly long either.
