Trivial question about sleepsuits and FEET

(17 Posts)

DD is 5 weeks, was 7lb when born 9lb9 a few days ago, so not huge, don't feel she's a particularly long baby either.
She's usually dressed in a sleepsuit, and within a week her feet were bunched up in the newborn stuff. A few days later i packed away her "up to 1 month" stuff.
She's now in 0-3, and at 5 weeks I'm worried about her feet again! They seem to be constantly pushing against the bottom of her sleepsuit. Now I might be hiking the suit up when I feed her but that's most of the time!
Does she really need to go into 3-6, or am i neurotic?
I know the answer is "use your common sense", just wondering if anyone else has noticed this with an average sized baby??

I used to cut the feet off the sleepsuits if they still fitted every where else but squashed their feet - then just put a little pair of socks on grin

will you want to use the suits again/pass on? i cut the feet out of dd2s as they fit fine except for her toes being squished.

We cut the feet off and put little socks on in winter and bare feet in summer. I always used to think it looked very cute. Meant we could afford to buy much nicer sleep suits and get a bit more wear out of them.

Toes pressing on a sleep suit must be very uncomfortable.

maybe she has big feet? (serious question, not being sarcastic)

dd1 was 6lb when born, so tiny. 3-6 month sleepsuits/socks etc were all too SMALL for her from birht - she had the most enormous feet (and still does - size 12 at 5 years old)

btw gap do really nice footless ones i used to buy them on ebay for a couple of quid.

not really bothered about cutting feet out, will just move up a size, all hand downs from DS/other people so it's not as though i have to buy loads of new stuff!
Don't think she has biog feet
just wondering why this is the case or if anyone else notices the same!

ooh i wonder if this is why she's been grumpy the last few evenings? "MY TOES!!"

I always cut off the feet when they got tight too

Agree. Cut of the ends and add socks. My DS still likes socks on when it's cold at night now and he's 3!!

I think it depends where they are from too. My DS is in sleepsuits for the first time ever at age 2 (since he was tiny) as his room he is in now is freezing! But a lot of places I have been to get them, the feet would be just way too small but the rest of it all too big! He's not a big 2 year old at all either. I have found sainsburys to be the best so far. Lovely towelling ones too, and only £4.50 for 3, teamed with a towelling vest, scrummy grin

We cut the feet out too. DD had really disproportionately long feet when she was born - we called them her flippers grin.

She's grown into them a bit now but I still like to give her lots of room to move her toes around.

Agree that Sainsburys are very good and also have built in scratch mits which have been a godsend to stop her hands getting cold & pulling her dummy out!

BTW - I'm sure I read somewhere that babies don't have much sensation in their feet and toes so won't be able to tell it their feet are too cramped so it's even more important to check that they're not.

well at the age of 5 weeks she is now in 3-6m sleepsuits
ver advanced, no doubt wink

Very advanced indeed! I'm not sure what that says about my baby who is currently flapping around in a 3-6 month sleepsuits that looks like a tent on her at 5 months!

She's still in 0-3 months with her other clothes!

yes, DS is 2 1/2 and still needs his 18-24m trousers tightening almost as far as they'll go
