Very small newborn clothing
I'm mum to two early blessings. (Boy born at 33 weeks, now age 28 months and a new little girl) My youngest is now 9 weeks (five adjusted) and is a bit too long for her preemie clothes. However, all of her newborn clothes seems to swallow her! Does anyone have any advice on what brands run a touch small? Thanks!

Re: Very small newborn clothing
carters seemed to run smaller. can you do 2 pieces? like pants and shirts instead of sleepers?

Re: Very small newborn clothing
How big are your babies? My DD was six pounds and carters and gerber fit her perfectly. Gerber was smaller than carters, but carter was still a good fit.

We had the same problem with my DD who was 3 weeks early. We found Faded Glory brand at Wal-Mart closed the gap for a few weeks for us :)

Gymboree sells the sizes "up to 5lbs" and "5-9 lbs" would those work?

The Kissy Kissy brand of clothing runs quite small. They are also very soft.

I had this same issue with my 33 weeker. WhatbI ended up doing was buying 100% cotton nb clothes and washed and dried hot hot several times, most shrunk at least a little.
