    Default Best clothing brands for a well rounded baby

    Ok so DS3 will be 3 months old next week and is a well rounded 8.7kgs he has rolls on his rolls lol

    He is currently wearing size 1 leggings in bonds - ridiculous the legs are way too long but they are already getting firm around the middle (more ).

    DS1 was like this but it was over 20 years ago so everything has changed. DS2 didn't hit 8kgs until he was 1. So DS3 has outgrown DS2's country road size 6-12 months, and the 18-24 month CR stuff is the wrong season and will be way too small by the time it is cool enough to wear sigh. The seed stuff is the same.

    Ok so best clothing brands for a well rounded baby? Big waist sizes and short legs/arms lol

    Help!

    Mix apparel (Coles) you can buy online or in store. Cheap but good!

    Not Target lol. Not sure if it's me but they were always small with DS. I now deal with a girl so don't have to worry about length of sleeves and stuff. I also roll them up and pretend it's cool to wear it that way.

    Its getting warmer so you can prob get away with not having to worry about length of sleeves/pant legs too.

    I would also keep the size 1's for next year as he may slim down when he starts moving.

    I agree. Really good value for kids clothes.

    I have the opposite problem with DD so i'll tell you the ones I've found too big
    Next direct, sprout and jack and milly brands from myer have always swam on my DD so might be good for your DS.
    Also agree with @twinklify that i would hang onto the pants that are too long as when he starts moving he might proportion out a bit and you could get a second wear out of them!

    I find bonds and target to be good for long skinny bubs.

    I found NEXT clothing too generous for my baby, had to take his onesies in! Might be a good option

    Try Marquise brand. They sell it at Myer. Some of it can be a wee bit on the pricey side but they are always on sale. I would definitely put them in the "short but chunky" category. Ds always outgrew them in length but never in snugness.
