What did your baby weigh at birth? 6 lbs 10 oz

How long did he/she wear newborn size clothes? not long at all. Maybe a week or two, if that.

How long did he/she wear 0-3 month size clothes? he wore size 0-3 month onesies & pants longer than footed sleepers because he grew length-wise very quickly and I believe he was in 3-6 month size sleepers at like 6 weeks old, perhaps even before that. I do know that he has always outgrown a size long before reaching the "age", if you know what I mean.

How old is your baby now? 10 1/2 months

What size is he/she in now?
18 month & 2T

What did your baby weigh at birth? 7ls, 7oz 20.5"

How long did he/she wear newborn size clothes? about 5-6 weeks

How long did he/she wear 0-3 month size clothes? It depends. She can actually still fit into some 0-3 onesies & snap shirts as well as pants. It's the sleepers that are a problem b/c they're not long enough.


How old is your baby now? She'll be 4 months next week..wow! She's also now 13 lbs, 14oz.

What size is he/she in now? Again, it depends on the brand (I find Gerber tends to run smaller for example) & what it is. She has a lot of one piece dresses that have the underpants built in & just snap closed...they're all 6 months & are quite big on her but yet she has other rompers that are 6-9 months that fit just fine. By & large, I'd say she's in 3-6 months (esp pj's) & 6 months for onesies.
I found some bodysuits that I'd forgotten about...they were 0-3 & 3 months. I figured she'd be too big for them, but they fit just fine.

Probably not the help you were looking for, but it's hard to say. Babies grow at different paces & are shaped differently so clothes can fit so differently than the "standard" or average. KWIM?

What did your baby weigh at birth?
7 lbs, 8oz

How long did he/she wear newborn size clothes?
at least 6 weeks

How long did he/she wear 0-3 month size clothes?
hmm. 6ish weeks



How old is your baby now?
5 1/2 months

What size is he/she in now?
Depends on the brand and the style of clothing. For Carter's he can still wear some 3 month stuff and some 6 month items, some of the footed 3-6 month clothes are getting too short! He's a long, skinny baby so anything with a fitted waistband just hangs on him!

What did your baby weigh at birth? 7lbs 8oz, 21in

How long did he/she wear newborn size clothes? He was in nb for about 6 weeks. He had short legs and all newborn pants were toooooo big, even rolled and cuffed. I bought some preemie ones and they fit perfect. Then some 0-3 and 3-6 pending the brands. They are all different! Carter's brand nb run big, he was in them for 6 weeks, Old Navy/Gerber run smaller he was wearing 0-3 for the first 4 weeks, then from 4-6 weeks was in Old Navy 3-6. I think Children's Place, Gymbo and Gap are normal sized not big or small if that makes sense.

How long did he/she wear 0-3 month size clothes? 4-6 weeks pending the brand. He wore 0-3 pants longer than the onesies, cause he has short legs and a long torso. He wore 3-6 month the longest.

How old is your baby now? 6 months next week!! :'(

What size is he/she in now? 6-9m

What did your baby weigh at birth? 6ls, 4oz 20.25"

How long did he/she wear newborn size clothes? He is just now outgrowing his NB clothes at 8-9 weeks. He can still wear all his nb pants and shirts, it's just the footed things that are too short now.

How long did he/she wear 0-3 month size clothes? He is just now getting into 0-3 months. Most of them are still pretty big on him though because he's thin. He's just very long so he needs the bigger ones for length. Brands vary a LOT. Gerber and Ralph Lauren run small, Carters runs a little bigger.

How old is your baby now? He will be 9 weeks tomorrow! He's now 10 lbs, 23"

What size is he/she in now? Still in NB in some things, and now 0-3 month in others. The footed sleepers were the first to go. Then the tight carters NB onesies as they are too short now.
