    So maybe, take a few of each (if you want baby to wear their own clothes at hospital), or else use hospital onesies and then tell someone what size to bring in for a 'going home' outfit once you know baby's weight?
    That is most hopeful as our OBGYN has already estimated the bub at3kg so I feel like bythe time bub is born she may be more like 4 kg! Good to know 0000 would still fit a 4kg bub:-), i have no idea as u can tell

    our bub was quite long at birth (54 cm) and he still fit in newborn/0000 size clothes.

    we did bring 000s too which he wore.

    I would stick to 0000. Bub was 3.19 kg and could have worn 00000 but 0000 were fine, just a little big. She stayed in 0000 til 2 months (or 5kg)

    I packed all 0000. Baby had nothing to wear for a few hours as the clothes I brought were too small and the hospital clothes were to small.


    Eta he was 9pd11.5oz. 4.41kg.

    With ds2 I only packed 000 clothes. He was 9pd9.5oz. 4.35kg.

    You could always pack 2 000 and 2 0000 and then once you have the baby and see what size is best, send your partner home to grab the rest of that size. Mine was 4.67kg... we couldn't do up the top button on the 0000 because she was too fat. lol.

    Our hospital only keeps you there for 4 hours so we don't need much. I just packed a couple of 0000 suits and one 000 just in case he's big.
