How long did your baby fit into their newborn clothes for?

I think the time our babies spend in newborn clothes can vary a lot. Many mums and midwives tell you not to buy too many newborn clothes as babies often outgrow them and to focus on zero to three month clothes. But this definitely depends on whether you had a small or premature baby.

So, I found it best to stick to the numbers on the list given to me by my midwife but also to have the same number or more of zero to three month clothes. I also chose to get most of my baby’s clothes second hand to reduce the environmental impact of going through so much so quickly and also as these in general have fewer chemicals in them as they’ve already been washed frequently. A great way to save some money too! Hope that helps!
