My 6 week old baby has nearly grown out of her 0-3 month clothing, has any one else found that clothes just don't fit as long as they're meant to?

You Bet We Have! Our 4 month old is wearing 6 to 9 months and 9 months. She was wearing newborn when she was born (weighed 7 lbs 11 oz) but soon moved to 0-3 size by 1 month, and was in 3-6 by 2 months. It's really a shame that she hasn't worn her smaller clothes but fortunately we have plenty of friends we can pass them on too!

my daughter went in to 3 months cloths when she was 1 month but after that she stayed right on. she is 3 now and she wheres size 3 in most cloths. every kid is diffrent and grow and diffrent paces. your baby might grow to be really tall. And all cloths is sized diffrent I find that the Childrens place is good for my daughter. you just have to find the the s good for you. has long has you baby is healthy you shouldnt worry about it!!

Thanks everyone, its reassuring to hear i'm not the only one with a big baby. My daughter was 8lbs4 at birth and only lost 2oz in the first 5 days. My friends baby is a week and a half older than mine but she still fits in her newborn clothes. I've got loads of 0-3 cloths so am having to make sure she wears a new outfit every day to get them all worn. The dresses are ok because she's not all that wide, its the length she's growing out of - dungarees and all-in-ones are getting tight, especially when i use washable nappies.

Except for a couple of brands, my son never wore newborn or 0-3 month sizes. (He did wear the Carter's NB size for a few weeks). Thankfully, we hardly bought any of those sizes, opting instead for more 3 & 6 month sizes. My son's a year old now and wearing 18 month sizes...in some brands, he could easily do 24 months ones...and he's around the 90th percentile for both height and weight. I think the most frustrating thing is seeing how big the sizing difference is when you look at different brands. I deal with it by buying pretty much one brand exclusively. We're lucky enough to live near a Carter's outlet, so I get super deals.

mine too really, he is tall and skinny...so move him up to the next size range when he has outgrown them length wise but they are huge round the waist hehe...he is walking now so keeps losing his trousers....may have to invest in some braces to keep them up hehe x x

Yep. My LO fits long clothes but has a small waist, so I feel your pain.

when my son was born he had to wear 3 month old clothes. hes six months now and is wearing twleve month old clothes! I find certain brands fit differently. American apparel is made small even for babies! it all depends on the baby and the brand i guess.

Babies come in all shapes and sizes! My 4 month old has stayed true to her sizes but I know thats not common. Shes very skinny and tall so she almost never fills them out the way some babies do and she tends to be able to wear things past what the weight limit says on them. It's completly normal for your baby to have grown out of 0-3 month already

I have found that the sizing on some cloths can be decieving. My twins that is 9 months old is wearing some 12 month old cloths that just fit and some that are still too big. I find that Carters seem to fit best - they are just so darn expensive. I have been able to find a lot of them at yard sales and thrift stores. I guess it depends on who makes the cloths. I hope this helps

oh yes!!! no worries there, my 6 month old is already in 12 - 18 month clothes, rule of thumb, as long as the percentiles for their height is higher than their weight, everything is okay.

I'd say just take her to your doctor, if he/she says shes in good shape and not overweight compared to her height you're good to go!!

All children are different, and grow and different paces. My son was 6lb 10 at birth but stayed in his newborn clothes till he was 3 months old. He is a year old now and still in 6-9 months. A friend of mine her son is 6months and is now in 12-18months.

All baby's are differnt sizes and lengths, the clothes can only go on an average and most have weight and length guidelines...so if she falls out of the brackets for the weight/height range then she will move up.

Is nothing to worry about tho she is probs just a fast grower, where as my son was slow hehe x
