i shopped at boots, they do a small baby up to 7lb, Asda. do tiny baby up to 6lb i think. Tesco and Morrisons also do a small/tiny baby range

My 1st baby was born at 27 week, and discharged home at 5lbs. Tesco tiny baby was good at that point, Asda tiny baby are on the bigger size and so are boots.

just to add, as well as ASDA doing a tiny baby, online they also do premature sizes.

Asda in Durham does prem stuff in store.

Sainsburys also has tiny baby sizes too.

Asda do some really cute perm clothes. My son was 5.5lb when born and mil had to rush out and get him tiny baby from other are which were still big but not by too much

When I was in mothercare I saw a range for tiny babies called Bliss?

Mothercare. H&M 0-1 size is very tiny. I had a DD weighing 5lb 15oz and she wore Mothercare early/tiny baby bits mostly.

I remember seeing Asda premature clothes in store in one of their home/clothes stores. They were really tiny, too small for a 37 weeker I'd imagine.

Yeah the Asda preemie bits are for 3lbers.

Got some nice bits in Sainsbury's for my niece on behalf of my sister when she was induced at 37 weeks. And micro nappies!

YY to micro nappies!
DD1 drowned in newborn nappies and even DD2 needed them and she was 7lbs!

YY to Asda prem range for super tiny, they do 3lb, 4lb and maybe 5lb, my twins were 5lb6 and 4lb1 at birth, down to 4lb9 and 3lb9 after a few days. Asda 4lb stuff was still big but the vest and baby grows have poppers on the shoulder sections (vest), the bottom for nappy changes and all down one side (vest) or legs so they're brilliant to get on and off too, wish there were more ranges like it! .

Boots, Morrisons and Mothercare also do lovely early baby/tiny clothes.

Pampers micro nappies were good for the first 2 months, they're sized up to 5lbs but mine wore them for much longer, found them hard to get though, Boots was the only place we found them.

i used micro till my LO was at least 7-8lb I'm sure i did

sweetchilli77 Fri 13-Jan-17 19:31:21

ASDA sell the micro, always have them in

I bought my son's clothes from mothercare and next. He was 4lb when he was born and he drowned in them. Staff on the neonatal unit ended up putting dolls clothes on him lol. Eventually 5weeks later he was allowed home weighing 5lbs he just about fitted into the premature baby clothes I had bought for him.
Quality wise next was best (personal opinion)

John Lewis do early baby and tiny baby and is where most of 5 week prem DS's clothes came from. They are happy for you to return and change for bigger sizes/refund if you get it wrong! Also had stuff from next, boots and Tesco.
