Those who have had babies who had to wear "tiny baby" clothes, how much did your babies weigh and when did they move into size newborn? Also did the wear size 0 nappies?

Being induced at 37 weeks and baby was estimated at 4lbs8oz at 35 weeks. Unsure if size 1 nappies and newborn nappies will be ok.

My DD was 37 weeks and 4lb 5oz. Definitely size zero nappies and tiny baby to start with.

My DD was 2 weeks late and 6lbs 1 and newborn swamped her!

By the time we left hospital, ds weighed 6 pounds 2 ounces and newborn stuff was massive on him. He was in tiny baby for about 3 to 4 weeks I think.

My 37 week baby was 6lbs15 but dropped down to about 6lbs5 he wore tiny baby for a few days, he's over 7lbs now and newborn still swamps him

6lb 1oz, he wore size 0 nappies and tiny baby until he was about 6-8 iirc.

My DD was a week late and 8lb 4oz, she was still very small and needed 0 nappies. All her newborn baby grows also drowned her despite saying upto 7lb.

Definitely get tiny baby things and good luck

DD was 6lb 7oz and has only just stopped fitting into some of her tiny baby clothes despite weighing 9lb 4oz at 8 weeks yesterday!

I found some M&S newborn size to be quite slim fitting and fit better than some of the supposed tiny baby clothes we bought.

My DD was born at 40 weeks and 7lb 6oz - a lot of newborn stuff was way too big on her, tiny baby was much better so definitely go for that.

DD was 6lbs, full term, she had tiny baby stuff for a while, newborn was huge and as for 0-3 months...!!!

randomsabreuse Wed 10-Oct-18 16:15:46

6.11, full term in tiny baby for at least 3 weeks possibly longer. Didn't find size 0 nappies so had many leaks!

Tumilnaughts Wed 10-Oct-18 16:25:45

6lb 8 baby at 10 days overdue. Wore tiny baby for about 5 weeks and size 0 nappies for about the same. She's 2 now though and weighs like lead!

DD1 was 6 weeks early and 5lb 4 - she was in tiny baby until she was at least the equivalent of term, maybe a little longer?

Aprilislonggone Wed 10-Oct-18 16:27:25

Ds was born at 35 weeks and weighed 4-12 when I took him home!! Asda prem clothes were perfect! Seemed to be in tiny nappies for ages!! Still in 0-3 months stuff at 6 months anyway!!

5lb 2oz, she was lost in the newborn clothes, think she moved to size1 nappies and 1-3 month clothes at about 4 months old. Even now at almost 3 she has just gone into 2-3 clothing.

DS was 6lbs 15oz and 53cm at 40+6, he needed tiny baby for the first 4 weeks but size 0 nappies were too short on the rise.

DD was 7lbs 2oz and 47cm at 39+5, she needed tiny baby for 6 weeks and size 0 nappies were fine until 3/4 weeks.

SemperIdem Wed 10-Oct-18 16:41:19

Born full term at 6lb 7oz’s, needed tiny baby sizes even before her weight dropped to 5lb 8oz’s.

Figmentofimagination Wed 10-Oct-18 16:59:25

Born 2 weeks overdue at 6lbs. Tiny baby looked huge on him, he was in them for quite a few weeks. Was also in size 1 nappies for a while.

SevenOf1981 Wed 10-Oct-18 17:00:41

Just to be helpful, my DD was 8lb5 and newborn seemed to swamp her too! Bought a few tiny baby things that fit. She must have been all muscle unless someone was leaning on the scales...

AnneElliott Wed 10-Oct-18 17:09:41

My 42 week overdue DS was 5lb 15 oz. he wore tiny baby clothes and 0 size nappies, but they were still too big. Went into newborn about 6/8 weeks I think.

Justme1981 Wed 10-Oct-18 17:14:17

My ds was 37 weeks 4lb 5oz size 0 nappies and even tiny baby size was huge! The est weight from scan 2 days before was 4lb 14oz,
If what you have is too big the hospital may be able to loan you clothes & give nappies until someone can do a shop run. We needed to borrow clothes ended up buying nexts 5lb size which was just right for awhile. Boots was also good for tiny clothes & nappies. Sorry i can't remember how long he was in them for - it did feel like a long time but i guess it all depends on how well baby grows?
Best wishes & good luck xx

DS born at 37 weeks weighing 5 pound 14. Dropped to 5 pound 7.

A friend gave me a bad of tiny baby clothes (mostly Asda and Tesco). He wore them for about two weeks then I had to put him in newborn baby gros as he has long legs. They swamped him everywhere else though. He wore newborn baby gros for quite a few weeks. Can't remember exactly.

You wouldn't think it to look at him now. Just turned six months and he's grown out of some of his 6-9 month clothes.

Oh I didn't actually know size 0 nappies existed blush poor DS wore size 1s folded
down at the waist. No leaks though strangely enough even though they were like a bin bag on him

welshweasel Wed 10-Oct-18 17:38:18

DS was 5lb 9oz at 35 weeks. He was in size 0 nappies for about 3 weeks. He was in early baby (John Lewis) then tiny baby and graduated to newborn when he was about 4 weeks old.

FaithInfinity Wed 10-Oct-18 17:42:54

DD was 38+5 but an unexpectedly tiny 5lb 4oz. We weren’t expecting a small baby, I only had 0-3 clothes which swamped her! Did emergency trips for newborn stuff which she was in for all of 2 weeks before she was too long for them. Size 0 nappies fitted okay.
