Re: How long in NB clothes?

A week or two. I would never buy newborn again except for a 4-5 pound baby.

Re: How long in NB clothes?

I've only had two that could actually wear newborn clothing at birth. They were around 8 pounds. The others were in 0-3 right off the bat. Weights were 9.6, 10.14 and 11.6 ( one son was in 3 months by his 10th day on earth. He weighed in at over 12 pounds at 7 days)

All 3 of mine came home just shy of 6 pounds. All wore newborn size for about a month.

My boys were 8lb 19.75 inches and 8lbs 6oz 20 inches.

They never fit into nb clothes and only wore 0-3 for a month or two. If anyone gives me nb clothes I exchange them.

Carter's & Old Navy have size charts online that will list height & weight. Carter's & Circo (Target) list the weight & height on the tags. You could check those.
Body shape will make a difference.

DD 6lbs 8oz lasted about 2 months, she left the hospital at 5lbs 11oz... She lost a lot of weight.

DS 8lbs - well, he's a barrel of a man! Left the hospital at 7lbs 9oz. Only wore NB for a week, lol! He's BF'd, just started solids, 24lbs and 29 inches, and he wear 18M clothing!! Guh!! So, in 6 months, we've gone through NB -18 month clothes. Hopefully, these 18's will last more than 3-4 weeks! *Fingers crossed!*

DS was 6.4# and 20.5" but he was TINY. They had the NICU ready to go before they weighed him b/c the hospital's policy was to automatically send all term babies under 5lbs there. They thought for sure he was under 5lbs. He wore preemie sized clothing for almost two months, then he wore NB size for another month or two before he hit a growth spurt and bulked up.

DD was 5 lbs 13 oz and 19 inches. The some newborn clothes fit for a week and others a month and 1/2.

It depends on the brand. She wore some 0-3 with her newborn clothes. She is currently 30 inches tall and 20lbs and wears 24months/2T in most brands. (She turned 1 on the 11th of July).

Re: How long in NB clothes?

It really all depends on your baby. My oldest didn't even need newborn. He started wearing 0-3 right at birth and was wearing 3-6 months at 3 weeks old. My middle son wore newborn for a few weeks because he was a preemie, but was in 0-3 at about three weeks. My dd lost a lot of weight at birth and wore preemie for three weeks and then newborn until about a month. She quickly went into 0-3 and then 3-6.
