    Everyone told me not to worry about the smaller sizes, start with a couple of OOOO and then all OOO's... Ds was born 7lb, he was very long but TINY... we had to buy OOOOOO's and 5 O's to take him home from hospital and he was still in OOOO's at a few months old...

    My bub was 9lb 5oz when born, and she was in 0000 for a week I think! I found that bonds suits were a size smaller than everything else.

    My daughter was 7lb12oz and my son was 8lb4oz and both went straight into 000.

    With DS I actually purchased about 2 x 0000 suits but his feet were way too big to fit in them.

    000 looks big but it looks cute too and lasts longer! I think 0000 is a waste of money in most things unless it is larger sizing. I definitely wouldn't bother with 0000 in Bonds as they are such a small make.

    DS was 8lb4oz and is still wearing 0000 now at 4 weeks old. A few of the outfits are starting to get a little tight but I think we will get another few weeks out of them.

    I have found the 0000 onesies from Best n Less to fit perfectly but 0000 onesies from Big W are quite baggy around neck and legs. Bonds wonder suits in 0000 are a good fit too.

    I can't believe how varied the sizes are from brand to brand. Makes it hard to know what will fit and what won't.

    ds was 2884g or 6lb 5oz when born and 48cm long. he went straight into 4x 0s but they were a little bit big but i didnt see the point in getting 5x 0s as babies grow so quickly. i packed 3x 0s in ds bag for hospital aswell as 4x 0s as going by scan ds was meant to be about 1kg or 2lbs roughly heavier going by growth scan.
    i have packed the same sizes again for this baby's bag too.

    it is interesting seeing different peoples opinions on different brands, i personally found big w and kmart to be smaller than target and pumpkin patch.

    My first bub was 8pd7oz and 54cm and went straight into 000's, my third bub was 6pd 4oz and 53cm and was in 00000's for a few weeks and my fourth bub was 7pd 11oz and 55cm and he was in 0000's at birth, mainly for the length as the 00000's were way to short in the legs.

    If you're expecting a 6-7 pd bub I wouldn't bother packing any 000's.

    My dd was 5p5o full term. Was in 00000 for ages. She is just a tiny petit little girl. Think most babies are 0000.

    personally i would pack atleast 4x 0 and 3x 0 if i were you as a lady next to me had a 10lb 14oz baby and she only packed 4x 0 clothes which she gave to me as she was expecting the baby to be around 7lb as her other kids were all around the 7lb mark, she also said as she was expecting a 7pounder she didnt bother having any pain meds
    ds at 6lb 5oz was painful enough with only gas i cant imagine having a 10pounder with no drugs.

    DD was 9lb.4oz drug free, but really I think giving birth to any size hurts a lot! Though I've never had a small one (DS was 9lb10oz) so I'm not speaking from experience.
