Re: Would you ever skip newborn size?

Daddy's size has very little to do with how big the baby is going to be at birth, from what I have read, been told and IME. My DH is 260 lbs, and 6'3" and I'm 5'2 115 and our baby was full term 6 lbs 12 oz. However, now at 8 months she is a little above average, which I never was!

We didn't start using CD until my DD was about 6-8 weeks. If you want to start from the beginning you need something that can fit underneath the cord, which is usually why you need the newborn size. Next time we will start around 2-3 weeks and I plan on just skipping to smalls

ETA: Newborn size resells very well!
DH and I have been together since April 2008 and welcomed our DD June 2011 and DS July 2013
