What is your newborns waist & thigh measurement?

I'm trying to construct a pair of pants for a friends newborn (well, he isn't born yet) and I cannot for the life of me figure out what is an average waist & thigh measurement on a newborn. Can anyone help me out?

Re: What is your newborns waist & thigh measurement?

When I made recycled wool pants for my cousin's baby, I bought a pair of 0-3 month knit pants at Target and used them as my pattern. That's what I'm planning to do for my baby, too, if I ever get my act together. Craft chat also has helpful information on newborn measurements.

When my son was a newborn he had like a 13/14 waist, 14/15 rise and about 5 inseam..Or like the mama said you could just measure a newborn pair of pants..
