Re: If you had a 6-8 lb baby.. how long till 3-6 month clothes?

I would not bother with newborn - we bought some 0-3 clothing, but our main clothing was 3-6 but I always size up - funny thing, they generally will grow into it. Or, at least my son does. He's "smaller" on the growth chart, and he's now fully in a 12 month and he's 10 months. I'm buying 18 month for winter (I have 12 month jeans, etc. I got clearance). Remember you have to get through the entire winter...when I buy gifts I always but 3-6 or higher. My son was 8 pounds, 6 oz. at birth. I have friends though whose kids are younger and on 18 or 24 month clothing so it really depends on the child - it also depends on the brand. Target brand is true to size, gerber (which I don't like) shrinks like mad. Carters is true to size or a drop big depending on their actual branding and where you buy it.

Umm... DS1 was wearing 3/6m on his 1st bday.. He was 16lbs then. I don't remember things by weights for the most part so I don't know if I can help much. DS2 wore 3/6 from 4-7mo and DS3 has grown right on, if not quicker than, the estimated sizing.

One thing to keep in mind for us the width was not an issue at all but our August baby who was born 8lbs 2oz, kept true to sizing by age, 3-6 months at approx 3 month, except pants and footed sleepers, DS was so tall we had to size up on those much earlier. So if you have taller kids that is good to keep in mind.

Both of my kids were 8lb 6oz, and my DS didn't fit 3 month clothing until he was 3 months. I DD was longer at birth, and was wearing 3 month clothing about 4-6 weeks. For us, it had to do with the length, more than the weight.

I couldn't vote.

DS1 was 7lbs 4oz at birth. He was in 3-6 months around 4 months old. They fit him in length, but were baggy on him.

DS2 was 7lbs even, and was in 3-6 just before he turned 3 months.

DS3 was 8lbs 2.5oz. He is 5 1/2 months old. He he can still fit in some of his 0-3 stuff, some of it fits in width but is getting snug in the length. And the 3-6 fits, but not well, just depends on the brand.

God bless!

DD2 was 6lb8oz and newborn clothes were swimming on her. She could have worn preemie clothes. She went into 0-3m by 2 mos, and 3-6m by about 4 months. Now she's pretty much right on for age/size.

DS was 7lb5oz and wore newborn for 3 weeks before jumping into 0-3m, and pretty much followed the sizes up by age.

DD1 on the other hand, was 9lb6oz and went right into 0-3 from birth and was in 3-6m by 6 weeks LOL

DS was 7lb 2oz at birth and he started wearing 3-6 month stuff at 2 months old. He can still fit into some (the Gymbo stuff) now at 5 months and ~16 lbs but he's mostly into 6-9 month stuff.

My kids are the opposite. They have long torsos and short legs. DD wears 4T tops and dresses, but can wear 18 mth pants (for length, but is too skinny for the waist). Since we hardly wear pants around here (SoCal and all), I did my sizing by when they needed larger torso sizes (which were always too big around and BARELY long enough).

I also agree with all the PPs who've said that different brands fit diff. DD still wears 3T gymbo, but is abt to move to 5T in Target brand. Gerber runs REALLY small.
