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

DD was 7 lbs 14 oz and was way behind in clothes. DD was behind on clothes. She wore NB for at least 2 months and then it went from there. At 20 months she is still wearing 18 month clothes and I don't see how she is going to fit in 24 months clothes this winter..crossing my fingers that she does since that's what I bought.

DS was 6 lb 15 oz when he was born, and wore NB and preemie clothes for the first month or two. Generally, I've been able to move up a size when he his age hits the next size range. However, he also still fits in some smaller sizes, depending on the brand. That being said, I only started CDing in the last few months. There is no way he could wear his 9-12 month pants with a disposable; they would fall down around his ankles.

I voted 13 weeks but I am pretty sure dd wasn't in those clothes for a while after that, actually. There wasn't a longer option . The NB was huge on her. She didn't "chunk up" until she was 2.

Liev was 8 lbs even and started 3-6 months clothing at 2 months. Hunter, my oldest, was 7 lbs 13 oz and didn't go into 3-6 months clothing until closer to 5 or so months. He's always been small, still is.

I need an "other" option. My ds1 was 7#2oz at birth & was in 3-6 mo clothes right at 3-6 mos. My ds2 was 7#8oz at birth and was in 3-6 mo clothes at 4-8 mos. My daughter was 6#11.5oz at birth and at 21 mos has JUST stopped wearing some 3-6 mo clothing, but that's more because she's a girl & dresses become shirts while pants become capris. But she still fit in them around! She officially stopped wearing 3-6 mo clothing at about 9-12 mos.

DD was 6lbs 15ozs when born. She was 11lbs and change by 5 weeks. She was able to fit into some 3-6 months clothes by 6 weeks. Some brands run bigger though like Carter's, it took her a little longer to get into those.

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

Just depends on the kid and their growth pattern...DS was 8lbs 8 oz and was wearing 3-6 month clothes within 3 weeks, DD was 7 lbs 15 oz and was wearing 3-6 month clothes at around 6 or 7 weeks old...but both of my kids have super long torsos and chunked up really really fast. We never used newborn size clothes for either of them. My niece was 6 lbs 6 oz when she was born and wore preemie clothes for the first 2 months...I don't think she wore 3-6 month clothes until she was 6 or 7 months old.
