need some suggestions (baby clothing)

To start, My last child was a girl. We kept all her clothes-- Preemie to now. Most are in ok condition.

this child is 75% a girl and i would like to get some items, BUT for some reason im stumped.

I have never had a baby actually born in winter, i have a Feb 28th baby and May 22nd baby.... no fall/winter babies. I did buy recently 5 preemie onesies because i know those she can wear under sleepers. or by themselves. So should i buy just a few 0-3 outfits as far as sleepers? I know i want to get a coming home outfit... preemie and pink . Not sure what else though.

thanks
jen

That depends....do you tend to have smaller babies or larger? If larger, I'd invest in some 3/6mth sleepers This will be my 1st winter baby too, hehe. Its hard to adjust to...shopping wise.

my ds was born in the winter~12/2 and he was so tiny, we used lots of sleepers and those 2 peice cotton sets, long sleeve and stretchy pants from walmart.
don't get too many preemie, get some 0-3 and 3-6.
don't forget little hats, socks and long sleeve shirts. we also use the blanket sleeper bag, theyre great and warm and super snuggly.

If it's really cold where you are, you can dress baby in a long sleeve onsie and the stretch knit pants. Then layer other things on top when you go out. Think sweaters, sweat pant type pants, and a bunting. Don't forget hats, socks/booties and mittens.

Re: need some suggestions (baby clothing)

for my son i sweared by my carters long sleeve layettes/gowns. they were awesome until he was 7 months. they have elastic at the bottom so you can pull their legs through for a quick diaper change!!! he was a winter baby and i just put socks on him when he wasn't swaddled up for sleeping. when he started sitting then i would hike up the bottom so it became a t-shirt!!! great! he wore his all night and most of the day if we didn't go out any where. They come in GN colors with animal prints/sayings on them! i will diffinately use them for my next baby...even if i have a girl! Pea
