Just that. Petite baby growING out of 0-3 month wear. Buy new stuff from Boots, Primark, Debenhams and Tesco.
Tesco is ENORMOUS!! I check the back: their sizes go "up to" 0-3 months then at 3 months theyre expected to fit 18 lb suits! What a leap ... that's the 99th centimetres in the red book.
I'm all for clothes that last but just shock how big compared to others.

Oh well ill keep them for future use and use the others! smile

Centile not cm. (3-6 month clothes ... after 0-3 which fitted her ok!).

SlinkyB Thu 08-Jan-15 18:44:16

The legs on them are stupidly long too.

squizita Thu 08-Jan-15 19:31:34

Lol yep ... my comparison against a typical 3-6 month grow.
As I say DD is petite ... but this is hilariously big!grin

Have you washed and dryed them? I'm just wondering if they shrink more in wash?

DS was heavy (75th cen

Posted too soon!

DS was heavy (75th centile) because he was tall (91st centile) and I loved Tesco babygrows for their long legs. I had to cut the feet off others.

Mines a fattie (98th centile) so we get on ok with their sizing but they do seem larger than m&s for example

whereisthewitch Thu 08-Jan-15 19:59:11

This must be a new thing because when DD was a baby she was always a size ahead in tesco babygros. They always seemed to be made for skinny babies which suits ds.
Now asdas babygros are huge, as are m&s, funny how different they can be.

squizita Thu 08-Jan-15 19:59:31

Yeah they seem good quality but will have to save them! Just amazed compared to others!

CoolCat2014 Thu 08-Jan-15 21:31:00

Maybe I should try Tesco then. DD is 99th Centile for height and grows out of everything ridiculously fast even though it's still huge around the body. I find M&S the best for her - nice and long! so maybe don't try M&S! Mothercare and mamas & papas seem really short.

I love Tesco babygros! DS is 91st for height but 25th for weight so their long legs suit me fine!

MissWimpyDimple Thu 08-Jan-15 21:38:51

When dd was tiny, Tesco were for long skinny babies! Perfect for her grin

ASDA were more "square". Definitely for the bigger babies!

SlinkyB Thu 08-Jan-15 22:22:20

YY, Tesco definitely suit long slim babies. My ds's were both 75th for weight, don't know about length but I'd say average. Always found Next babygrows very good for sizing.

FATEdestiny Thu 08-Jan-15 22:26:14

Conversely, ASDA babygrows are tiny.

littlesupersparks Thu 08-Jan-15 22:30:08

Definitely made for long skinny babies! They didn't do up around the chubby middles of mine but the legs were hanging off lol!

Blueberrybaby Thu 08-Jan-15 22:31:44

No idea what percentile my dd is but I bought 18-24 mos sleepsuits for her when she was coming up for 17 months. I thought I'd buy something she could grow into! She was tripping over the feet - their was at least 6 inches of extra leg there! Now at 20 months and firmly within the age/size range she's still flip flopping around in them!

TwoLittleTerrors Thu 08-Jan-15 22:37:33

Both of mine are petite. Primark -and sainsbury ones are good, I found asda too fat as well. And h&m are stupidly long.

Waggamamma Thu 08-Jan-15 22:41:05

They're great for my 91st centile ds smile . He's 15wks and in 6-9months shock .

I'm not getting any from matalan again though as there's not enough poppers, leaving big draughty gaps at the legs!

NorahBone Thu 08-Jan-15 23:28:54

I find you can't really generalise about a supermarket' s sizing as they source things from different factories. I don't know about other shops though: Primark seem to be made for Mr Tickle' s offspring and H&M are about one size larger than the label says.

squizita Fri 09-Jan-15 09:06:53

My little lady is average length but skinny (healthy though) and Primark/H&M/Uniqlo work very well for her.

Mrsgrumble Fri 09-Jan-15 09:08:47

Leg length ridiculous !
