Re: What size clothing did your full-term LO come home in?

The one I gravitate to, though, is 3-6mo. Is there any chance baby will fit that at birth? MIL says DH wore 6-9mo home from hospital, and he was under 9 pounds. That seems really odd to me. I was 8lb9oz but I have no idea what size I wore.

You could put a little baby in an adult T shirt if you really wanted to. It wouldn't look right, but it's possible.

I think that gown styles and short sleeves/pants can be worn a size or two larger. Just bring all 3 outfits with you and choose one when you can play dress up with the baby.
