Cympreni, do you mean ridiculous like this?



I was expecting DD to be another 9lber like my son. Nope, she was less than 5.5 lbs when we took her home. I actually had to go out and buy preemie and NB clothes for her because my son wore 0-3 months from birth.

I wouldn't necessarily recommend buying the teeny sizes to begin with, but scope out some things so that you can send DH out to buy them if you decide you need them. Its nice to have some clothes that actually fit in the beginning even if they will grow out of them fast.

My baby's due June 2, so I was planning on using these alot. Did your baby sleep in these too?

yup. i didnt bother with getting sleep n plays or nightgowns or anything like that. i think i bought one, just for good measure. and she never used it because it was so hot. then with clothes she had a ton of outfits, but 90% of the time she ended up in just a onesie because the pants were way to big.

the pic i attatched is a bodysuit that is 0-3 months size and she's one day old. look how big it is in the butt!!

I see a tiny baby and think "Can I pick him up w/o breaking him?" It's weird b/c when I was a kid, I took care of my sister all the time, and I used to babysit babies a lot. But before I held a friend's newborn a month ago, I can't even remember the last time I held a tiny baby. I'm sure I'll get plenty of experience soon enough!
