I am starting to think of getting some cloths together. This is my fourth so I do not want to go overboard. Do you think one pack of 5 Carters's Bodysuits is enough or should I get two in each of the sizes. That is the only cloths item I will definitely buy new.

When they are tiny I don't like full outfits, with tops and bottoms and socks and all that jazz. I am a fan of the sleep and play look at least when they are still in Newborn, 0-3 and some 3-6. But, how many of each size are you getting?

I figure if I make a buying plan I could pick up a few bits and pieces here and there so it will not be such a shock to the system. Also I buy most of the kids clothes still in the states and my mom ships it over to me. So lighter and more frequent is cheaper for shipping.

I'd get 2 packs of each, just because they spit up so much.

I am going to try not to buy a whole lot new. I have to see what I have left, I purged a lot of stuff before I moved, so I don't know what I have left, but I know I had surplus of everything.

I will want to change out some of the blue stuff for pink if it's a girl, but I really want to limit how much I buy.

I usually go with two packs of each size because of spitting up or blow outs as well.....I'd say when they are really small they could stay in just a onesie and receiving blanket if you wanted...or you could add those little stretchy pants that they sell to match onesies...babies always look so comfy in those.

I'm the wrong person to ask because I love shopping and buying clothes for the baby lol. I do buy mainly sleepers, onsies though. I'll buy a few NB until I see how big/smaller this guy will be.

We've bought a couple onesies and sleepers that are gender neutral. But the ones I found are cheap (clearance for like $3). Ill probably want a bunch of plain onesies since I spit up a lot when I was a baby!

When I had my DD in sept I skipped newborn size altogether and went straight for 0-3 which she wore until she was 5 months old..then she skipped the 3-6 and went into 6-9 which she is wearing now..I found with her I didnt have enough sleepers so Im still having to buy more..If I have a girl im all set..LOL..also I would recommend a ton of onsies because you'll be changing it 4-5 times a day in the early days when they blow throw their diapers(Im using cloth prefolds and havent had that problem like I did with sposies)..

I would buy 2 of each. I am the same way with them when they are young, i dress them comfortably and not in lil suits, jeans etc. I think there is plenty of time for that

I'm sure if this baby is a girl i'll buy way more than is actually necessary Of course i'll find good deals. I was surprised how long my son fit into NB sizes and he was in 0-3 mos for a good amount of time as well so if this baby is anything like him we'll need quite a bit. I definitely feel like its important to be comfy but knowing myself i'll probably find comfy stuff that also happens to be cute. Plus i'd rather have too much than not enough since i'm sure i'll be slacking on laundry at first

Definitely agree with dressing babies in comfy onesies and sleepers. DD also hated getting anything over her head, so I mainly used sleepers with zippers.
