First off - I am always worrying I'm posting in the wrong place. If someone knows a better spot to post this, please just let me know!
Just came back from the store and feeling confused. Went to get some clothing to take to hospital for the baby to wear.4 weeks left so feel I should be getting ready! For gifts we received a lot of 0-3 month clothing, which is great, but I'm guessing would swamp a newborn. I know they grow quickly so it is wise not to invest in much newborn clothing, but I wanted to have a few things to put on the baby that would not be massive.
Have been told the baby could be in the 8 pound range. (this was after an ultrasound I received at 32 weeks because I was measuring small....then they decided that inside the small bump is a fairly big baby...not sure how much faith to put in this, but that is another story.) I don't know what it is, but the sizing for newborn where I was shopping seemed to indicate: 7lbs (which was labeled preemie) and the next size was 10lbs (which was labeled 1 month). I don't know if the 7lbs is "round about" or "up to" or what.
I bought a little set in each size, but left feeling like I didn't know what I was doing. Obviously best to have some of each size, and bigger is better since baby will grow, but does anybody have any thoughts on this? (still can't really believe, looking at the 7 pound clothing, that something would come out of me that would be TOO BIG to fit into that outfit, but maybe that's just my nerves....;))
