    morning ladies :wave:

    we're going to buy most of the i love my bear clothing range, i absolutely love it :) was wondering what size to get though, baby would grow out of newborn really quickly i imagine? so would it be more beneficial to get the 0-3 months?

    what size of clothes is everyone else buying?

    thankyooo! :hug:

    I started at the 0-3 months sizes, my last dd was 8 13 at birth so newborn would not have fitted her.

    I havent really got that many 0-3 months either, a dozen or so babygro's and vests, a couple of jumpers, and other bits and bobs.

    Have a great shop!!

    I've bought one set of newborn with a sleepsuit, vest, hat and mits etc in case baby is small enough to manage to wear it in the first week or so. It was on sale in Tesco from £8 down to £4 so bargin :lol: Otherwise I'd not have bothered.

    I've then gotten sleepsuits, vests and a smallish pile of babygros in 0-3 but thats about it. Only one actual clothing outfit in 0-3 also.

    Most of my stuff I started from 3-6 months clothing wise. Same as sleepsuits, babygros etc.

    If I need extra baby gros etc in the first few months they are cheap enough to run out and buy then. I'm not going mad buying actual clothes and outfits as I don't go much for trying to dress a small baby in all those clothes and find all in ones much easier for everyone :roll: :lol: Also I'm due in early May and then we will be into summer and hopefully warmer weather, so I don't want to be buying stuff that chances are I won't hardly use. I'd rather buy clothes as and when once Baby is here tbh.

    Good thread Sarafet, it's made me think. I probably need to get buying some bigger than 0-3months too.

    I would buy 0-3 months if you are buying expensive one's. You can slaways get some cheap supermarket sleepsuits in newborn if babys really small when born.

    When james was a newborn I was too tired to dress him up in fancy clothes. He was in his sleepsuit most of the time. They're easier to wash and dry too. We ended up taking loads of gorgeous outfits to the charity shop never worn!

    :( but hopefully someone would have put them to use :)

    That's what I've found when looking after babies. They had all these lovely clothes but never wore them. Mum would dress in sleepsuit and I used to do the same. So much easier as you said, and in those early months anything that makes than happen in a bonus :lol: :roll:
