So, how many newborn outfits are you buying and how many 0-3?
I'm not sure what I'll be buying and what I already have. If I end up with a boy, I really won't need much of anything since my son was born at the same time of year. If it's a girl, I'll end up getting some new stuff.
As for NB versus 0-3, I think I got 2 or 3 NB outfits but kept the tags on--that way I can do an easy xchange once baby arrives. I feel like Carters NB only goes to 8lb. Boutique stuff always runs small.
And a word of advice for those that don't know this--I love Target brand Circo clothing but it runs VERY small! As do the Gerber onesies and undershirts.
DD was very tiny at birth (5lbs 6oz) so I have a TON of NB and 0-3mth stuff that Charlotte should be able to wear! I think I have atleast 10-12 NB onesies and 8 NB sleepers. I have a handful of 0-3mth onesies and sleepers too, but
I have 5 newborn onesies and will probably buy a package of newborn sleepers.
DD was on the small side to begin with (6 lbs 11 oz) and then had a tough time gaining weight so she was in newborn clothes for at least 2 months. I'm not anticipating that this LO will be huge, plus I find the sizing of most items quite generous so this LO will be in all newborn clothes initially.
When my first was born I had one pack of newborn onesies (3 total) and that was IT in that size.
The problem I had with both of the girls was that they were long.
