    What size was your baby wearing at birth?

    Here's a poll which will also act as a help for first time mums-to-be! When your baby was born, what size clothes did they wear?

    House of the crazy cat ladies...

    I guess it also really depends on the different sizing of different brands... I had Aidyn in only a couple of 0000 suits for about a week.
    Yet he was 000 for Bonds wondersuits and most others straight away!
    He was 8lb 7oz at birth...

    Paris was in 0000 and the funny thing was SIL told me not to buy any 0000 cos they would be too small. And even though I ended up having a 9lber she was still quite tiny! I swear someone lent on the scales when they weighed her J/K

    Jayden left hospital in 000000. Tiny hey, he was only 5lb 2oz.

    I took 0000 & 000 to hospital but they were all way too big. DH had to go do more clothes shopping while I was in hospital.

    Kimberley was in tiny baby clothes at birth. Not sure what size they are here but it is smaller than newborn. Even that size was to big and we had to roll her sleves up.

    Felix was in 0000 for a month he was 3.3 kgs (7 pound 6 ounce) , he actually fitted into 00000 width wise but he was too tall for them. I actually had some second hand 000's which were great as they were shrunk abit and he wore them as long as the 0000 other brands.

    Everyone told me to buy only 000, but they were way too big most of them for him, he grew very quickly though, but he had a 0000 suit that was for "good" I would limit the amount of 0000 because in felix's case he grew into and out of 000 so quickly too..was out of alot of 000 by 2 months..but since he has been taking ages to gain weight now..has been in 00 for ages..but not all in ones sue to height..that is important to look at your own birth heights..

    This is an interesting one!

    Alex, at birth, weighed 1.9 kilos (4lbs 2oz) and the 000000 available from the specialty shops and hospital were too big.

    My grandmother made him some dolls clothes to wear.

    Even the "Baby Born" clothes were WAY too big for him.

    Oh well...

    Luke fit 0000 (3750g - 8lb 4oz) perfectly and then grew out of them after about 4 weeks.

    He wore 000 at birth and although they were a bit big they looked ok - he has just grown out of all of his 000 now (2.5 months)

    Harry was 7lb 9oz and Grace was 7lb 10oz and both started in 0000 clothes. Grace is currently wearing a mix of 0000 and 000 stuff and if she is like Harry she will fit into 000 clothes until she is about 4-5 months probably.

    Olivia was 6lb 6oz and in 00000 for nearly a month. And like everyone else I was told to only buy 000 and roll the sleeves up! I bought a 000 pumpkin patch outfit (whiche have generous sizing anyway) to bring her home in and it was gigantic (it only just fits now!). A quick trip to the hospital gift shop (and $40 later #-o ) she had clothes.

    Cairenn was 8lb at birth and wearing 0000. Liam was 6lb 7oz and wearing 00000 (which were a bit big on him - he was a skinny little thing!)

    Hope this helps

    Jacob was in 000, but they were massive on him! He was 8lb 6oz. We were told he was going to be on the bigger side, so I didn't ever get any 0000, but I regret that now as he wasn't as big as expected and 0000 would have fitted him for a while as the 000 remained big on him for quite a while.

    Alexzander has been wearing 0000 & 000 - but the 000's are a little on the long size. He was 8lb 14oz at birth.
