My son was 4 weeks premature. He weighed 5lbs 7 oz and was 18.25 in. At his 2 month appt he was 9lbs and 21 in. He will be 3 months in 4 more days and is still in NB clothes. His arms are long like his daddy so he looks so funny with them hanging out. But when i put him in 0-3 his feet come out of the legs because he's not very long! It seems like his inbetween sizes stage, preemie to nb, nb to 0-3....takes so long like 3 weeks!! he just looks ridiculous in everything he wears!! Just curious to what everyone elses babies are wearing and how old, and did your inbetween stage last so long?!

My daughter is 3mths and a week and she wears anything from 3-6 mths. All her pj's are 6mths. She's really long but also the doctor said she has gained a lot of weight for a breast fed baby. She was two weeks early and weighed 7lbs 7oz and at the doctors at 2mths old was already 12lbs 8.5oz. We will be finding out on the 26th what she weighs now.

My daughter was just over 4 weeks premmie and weighed 5lbs 6oz she was only 14.5in. at 2 months she was virtually the same measurements as your son. She is now 3 1/2 months and only in the last week have I put her in 00 & some 0s. She had a noticeable growth spurt, she feels like she grew overnight almost :)

my son was 2 weeks early and is now 18wks old but he is still in 0-3 months anything bigger looks absolutely ridiculous on him. I think as long as babies continue to put weight on you shouldn't worry.

Wow.. I guess my little one is definitely a bit far along. She's around 15lbs and 26inches at 3 months.. So she fits in about 6-9 month clothing.

My daughter is 15 weeks and in 6-9 month clothing. She is 7450g at her last weigh in at 12 weeks. She is very long to for her age with a big tummy too so sometimes she is in 9-12 months depending on the cut.

My little girl is 14 weeks and wears a variety of sizes. Sizes run so different among different brands. She's in very few 0-3 mostly 3-6 and 6mos. She's 22" and 16lbs. I think littles are always in between sizes!! If her pants or sleeves are too long, I just cuff them and the outfits are still cute cute cute!

My son just turned 3 months yesterday. And he exactly wears 0-3 months clothes. But on his arms i can see his growing out of them slooowly. But his legs seems to be shorter, so even those 0-3 pants seem often still too big on him! lol

Oh goodness. My son was 5 days late & 9.2 at birth and could wear newborn clothes for about 2 weeks? He is now almost 4 months and he has been in 6-9 month onsies for about 2 weeks now. Other clothes, like pants and shorts are still 0-3 months or 3-6 months, A little bit of everything lol.

My daughter at 14 weeks is wearing 6-9 months clothing she's growing pretty quick.

[deleted account]

My 3 month old was 7 lbs and 20-1/2" long when she was born. She is now 14 lbs and 24-1/2" long. She mostly wears 6 month and 6-9 month clothing. It's amazing how fast babies can grow!!! :O

my son is 3months and a week he still is in 0-3 months, he still has one nb that fits but alot of his stuff is to short he is already 24 inches. When he stretches, the clothes get really tight!!!! 3-6 are long enough but he gets lost in them because he's so skinny!!!

[deleted account]

My daughter was born only a day early at 6 lbs 13 oz. She is now a week away from being 4 months and have found that the size doesn't matter. My daughter couldn't fit into 3 outfits that were NB until she was 2 months! The white onsies from Gerber she is in 6-9 months now. She is really long and skinny through the middle so she has always had problems with clothes. She is now wearing 3-6 but still wearing some 0-3. I think it depends on the brand etc. Sometimes the size doesn't seem right because every baby has different body types. It can be annoying but don't worry to much on size but what fits him regardless.

My first daughter was born at 8lbs 12oz and 21.25 in. She from about 6 weeks on wore at least 2 sizes bigger that she was and still is that way. My 2nd daughter is almost 4 months old and still wears 0-3 and she was born at 9lbs 13oz and 20.25in. Obviously all babies are different try short sleeves with a onsie of the bigger size under. That's what I do when my girls are in between.

My son will turn 4 months on the 2nd of April and he's wearing 0-3 months mainly. Most onesies fit him at that size (Gerber's run small; he wears 3-6 mon, probably 6-9, in that brand) but pants is where I have an issue. Newborns fit him great at the waist but are WAY too short on him. Size 0-3 month pants fit him lengthwise but are usually big at the waist. He's long (tall) like his daddy. He's even in between sizes in socks it seems. Eh...Kids!

My son is a BIG boy... and when I say big, I mean really BIG. He turned 3 months on 3/12/10 and he is already in 12 month clothes. He was 9lb 14oz at birth and has really packed on weight since then. At his 2 month appt he was 17lb 7oz and is now around 21lbs. He's also 27" long so it's hard for him to fit in shorter clothes.

My daughter is 3 months and 5 days old, she was 8lbs 4oz at birth, the dropped about a pound. She is now around 11 pounds and wears anywhere from NB to 3-6 months. If it is a one piece it is 3-6 months, but super baggy, two piece outfits has to be NB to 0-3 months for pants and 3 months for shirts. Socks.... I have to laugh because she wears 6-12 months. Don't feel bad that nothing fits right, because I am right there with ya. I don't want to get to many spring or summer outfits yet, she may just have a growth spirt. Good luck

Megan - I don't think you should worry! Babies come in all different sizes, my daughter for instance weighs in at 11 lbs and she's 3 months, while her cousin who's only a week older weighs 16 lbs. She's in newborn clothes while he's in 3-6 months, and they're both healthy babies. Talk to your ped if you are worried about it, but chances are if they haven't said anything to you yet it's probably fine. =) Hope this helps!

Reading alot of these replies, my son now seems so small! He was born 5 weeks early and weighed 5lbs and 3oz. He turned 3 months on the 20th of march. At his 2 month appt he weighed 7lbs 13oz, he eats every 4 hrs or so, and has started sleeping through the night. He is still wearing nb clothes really well. Maybe im wrong, but does he seem too small to anyone else? Seems like everyone else has kids that are growing alot faster, 0-3 months still swallow him when other kids his age are wearing bigger sizes and weighing alot more. Just seems to me like maybe he isnt growing as fast as he should be. Anyone got any advice?

My little girl weighed 6lbs 15ozs at birth 19 inches long, and now at 14 weeks she weighs 11lbs 3ozs and is 24 inches long. She's still in newborn clothes as well....she can fit into SOME 0-3 month but for the most part she's still swimming in them. Glad to hear that she isn't the only little one still in newborn though! =)

I had the same problem with 3 months pants being waay to big and newbornbeing to small! it was horrible since he is my first and i wanted him to look cute all the time :) hehe. What i did was buy three month shorts (they went past his knees and we're pretty baggy) and some suspenders.he wore those with his newborn onezies. i also bought some infant volcom visor beanies to mix up the look a bit and he looked like a stud! it look about three weeks of that before he fit into his three months outfits, but you couldn't even tell he was going through an awkward stage! hope that helps :)

my little boy was born 1 week 4 days over and weighed 8lbs 3 oz...he know weighs around 13lbs but is still in newborn clothes other then his sleepsuits (has slightly longer legs) 0-3 month clothes hang on him they look so odd when i put him in them...he will be 13 weeks on wednesday altho i think it may be to do with the fact he has a low weight gain
