Coming home outfit?

Has anybody decided what their LO will be wearing home from the hospital (if you are having a hospital birth)?
Last time we knew what we were going to put DS in but didn't realize how truly tiny newborns were so the pants were gapping at the waist and the shirt was too big. But he looked so cute! This is probably the best picture we have of it.


Anyways, with this baby and everyone having gave us so much cute stuff I can not decided on anything. I love all the little girlie clothes. I know she'll end up wearing them all but I can't make up my mind what I want the very first thing she wears to be. I have a feeling having a little girlie is going to cost a lot more to clothe than DS was

Re: Coming home outfit?

we did a coming home outfit for lucian but had the same problem it swallowed him, lol. this time we're not getting into all of that. it's still really cold and snowing here in late march so i'm just taking a couple new born size sleepers and a couple 0-3 month sized sleepers. also we literally live like 3 blocks away from the hospital so it isn't a bit to do.

I picked up an outfit from Gymboree last week. The size on the tag says "5-9 lbs" so I think that just about covers the range, lol! It's little pants, a LS shirt with ruffle sleeves and a little zip hoodie. It's freezing here (-3 right now!) and I don't expect that to change in the next 3 wks.

I knitted an outfit for this little one...usually, we just pick a comfy set of PJs, but I decided to go all out this time!

Not sure with this babe yet. DS1 I had a miracle/angel onesie. I had also bought him a Superman onesie and hubby a superman shirt, but it was newborn, so WAY too small for him. I did squeeze it on him like a shirt for one quick daddy/baby pic.

With DS2 I just brought a comfy, cute monkey layette set.

I have been eying a few wool outfits for Thomason, but it is so hard to spend so much on something that might not fit, or fit for long. I think this baby will be my smallest, but who knows if newbie stuff will fit. Off to tempt myself...

I picked an outfit! Ill post pics after work. It was pretty easy seeing as how I only have 2 or 3 newborn sized outfits lbetween what our friends have gifted us and what Ive bought lol! DS was almost 9 lbs (and she looks like she is following in his footsteps) so I essentially skipped that size this time...all excpet for the coming home outfit b/c Id like that to fit well.

Re: Coming home outfit?

I haven't decided yet, I think it will depend on what week I go into labor. I have a cute knitted outfit that would be warm but I'm wondering if it'll be too big. My other idea is just a warm sleeper that I purchased that's a little smaller. It's been cold here so whatever I choose will be warm
