Buying for baby HELP

Ah - what size will baby be...that is the question that even the professionals often estimate wrong!
Even though a baby might be bigger in pounds sometimes it is longer and needs a bigger suit to fit in the legs.
Do you have the measurements from your 20 week scan - they "might" give a rough idea as to whether the baby is big, small, long legs, etc. In saying this though, if they cook for longer/shorter then it throws everything out!
In short...most people buy 0000, but try not to over buy just yet as he/she might grow quickly and may not need them for long. Most people get given a few outfits after birth.

I had a feb baby so I bought 1 long sleeved wonder suit in 0000 and I short sleeved body suit in 0000 plus a couple of singlets in 0000 otherwise I bought 000.
If it were a winter bub I'd probably buy 2-3 0000 suits then the rest 000.
You can always buy stuff after bub is born to

Bub #1 I bought mostly 000 and they were all too big... I scoffed at the little pink 0000 jumpsuit a friend bought me.... That's what bub went home in :/ lol
Bub #2 bought half and half but only took 0000 to hospital... The midwives couldn't even get ds foot in the little foot pouch and couldn't even do the buttons up on the legs hahaha
I would suggest buy both. You just never know.
My sil had a bub that was still in 0's when he was 14 months old. Where as both my two were in 1-3 at that age. (I'm 5'10 and hubby is 6'6' not much hope of small babies )

I think 2 x 00000. 3x 0000 and 8 x 000 plus singlets in 000 is a good start. You will be given heaps. Target has $4 terry suits that are good 'just in case' option for the first few days if bub is tiny.

I think it's always good to have a few 4x0 in basics, wonder suits and singlets etc.
My 3.7kg dd1 was in 4x0 for a few weeks after birth, and my 2.2kg DD2 6 month old has only just grown out of them haha. It's so hard to tell!
I wasn't prepared for a small baby, so just had family run out on day 1 and buy me small clothes, so there is always that option too

I would get a couple of 5x0 and a number of 4x0. My DD was 7p7o and she wore 4x0 for 3-4 weeks

If you have the option, I'd suggest buying a few 00000 and 0000 outfits from cheap op shops, or a bulk lot from gumtree etc. My daughter was in 0000 for about a month, but some bubs are out of them SO quickly. At least that way you have things bub can wear, and have plenty of time to buy adorable things when they'll fit for longer. As others have said, people tend to give clothing to newborns to..so you may well be gifted plenty.

I took 0000 & 000 stuff but it was all too big for my bub.
She was born at 3kgs & has just grown out of 0000 at 8wks old!
Lucky she was born in summer during a heat wave because she didn't need any clothes apart from singlets & happy covers. Newborn singlets looked like dresses.
I'd definitely take 00000, 0000 & 000 next time.
