What size bodysuits/onesies did you pack in the hospital bag for bubba? I know the newborn size is usually 0000 or 000 for bigger bubs. Is it best to pack a few of each size? I'm just worrying if I pack all 0000, bub will come out huge and none of them will fit! Tell me if I am overthinking this What was your experience??

I pack only 0000 but no harm in packing some 000 & 0000
I only take the minimum has I have to take boys and girls because I don't know the gender
I have had a 3kg & 3.3kg and both times 0000 has been large on them

When DD was born I didn't pack any clothes for her, and just used the ones provided by the hospital. She was 3.7kg, and went home in a 0000 outfit.
This time I'm not decided whether to pack my own clothes for her, or use hospital ones again! We're due a bigger baby (estimated more than 4kg), but I'm still thinking 0000 should be okay. Most of my friends who had babies 4-4.5kg started them in 0000.
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?

Haha I packed 0000 & 00000.... DS was big so there was no chance he was going to fit the 5x0 clothes and the 4x0 clothes were pushing it so DH ended up bringing up some 000 clothes... I made the same mistake with DD cause I just thought there was no way she would be big So my advice is to pack mostly 4x0 but have a few 000 just incase

I packed 00000 and 0000 both times. 00000 swamped the twins for quite a while but DD3 only got wear out of 1 legless suit and went straight into 0000.
ETA twins were 1.5kg and 1.8kg, DD3 was 3.6kg.

My hospital didn't provide any clothes for bub, (or anything else for that matter), mine both wore 4x0, at 3.3 and 3.2 kgs, but could easily have fitted into 5x0, but I never bothered getting them clothes that small.

DD1 was 3.9kg and went straight to 000 (wore hospital clothes while we were there so I didn't have to wash). She was long and chubby. DD2 was in 0000 for about 5 weeks, she was 2.8kg.

I packed 0000 and 000. DD was 3.3kg and wore 0000 for a couple of weeks.
I wouldn't worry too much. If you haven't packed the correct size, you could always get your partner or another person to bring up a different size. At the hospital we were at, bub was in a little gown after the birth until we decided to change her.
