DD was 6 lbs. 12 oz. at birth and has always been pretty much spot on with clothes sizing. Give or take a week, she would inevitably be moving into the next size of clothes at the exact month that she was (switching to 3-6 month clothes at 3 months, etc.).

DD was 6 pounds 7 oz. She was 6 oz. when she came home.

She wore preemie the first 4 weeks, newborn weeks 4-9, and 3 months after that. Carters and Gymboree stuff ran bigger than most of the other stuff, so she grew into those outfits the latest.

My guy was 7.5 lbs. at birth and we started putting him in 3-6 mo. Sleepers around two and a half months. We're still using 3 mo. onesies but the legs in the 3 mo. sleepers are a tiny bit too short.

My DD was born exactly 7 lbs. She fit clothes mostly around the same age, though she was a little bit petite , so most things fit her longer as well. 3-6 month clothes are very generous though and those really did fit quite well during that time frame. Gerber runs really small, though, at 4 months DD could barely fit into one of their 3-6 month onesies while she could still fit Carter's 0-3 months easily. Target also runs big.

DS was 8 lbs 15 oz at birth. He has been switching sizes right at the age on them, except for shorts. He is tall and skinny and still can wear a 12 month in some. Pants always seemed to be huge on him. (He is 22 months now)
