Your Questions About Baby Care

Helen asks…

Do newborn baby clothes usually last beyond 8 pounds like the tag says?

I have a ton of newborn clothes but my doctor is saying the my baby is going to be a big boy. I’m worried nothing will fit him.

The Expert answers:

My son is a 2 months old and over 13 pounds and recently I found a onesie that was labeled NB 5-8 pounds and I looked at it and said to myself, let’s see if it still fits and it did. It really depends on the brand. It’s kinda like I had size six pants that would fit and size 10 that where too tight.

Carol asks…

Does or Would anybody rent their newborn baby clothes?

I have heard that there are services that you can rent newborn baby clothes, and due to them growing so quickly that this is a viable option.

If you don’t rent now would you be attracted to this type of service? What would be the pro’s and con’s?

Doing some reasearch, and your answers and thoughts are appreciated!

The Expert answers:

I find that unappealing on several levels, but I’ll answer it from a business perspective.

Lessee- will never get their ‘deposit’ back because it would be rare to return all clothing in the same condition it was rented.

Leassor- will have constant outflow of cash with minimal inflow because of the above- clothing can never to rarely be returned in new condition! Even consignment shops only take a fraction of what people bring them for consideration.

George asks…

Do you wash baby clothes before putting them on a newborn?

I just wondered whether it is common to wash and iron new clothes for a newborn baby before the baby wears them for the first time? All the women in my country do that but to me it seems pointless if the clothes are brand new. They say a baby needs a sterile environment in the first weeks of his life, but to me it just seems like a bit too anxious behaviour.

The Expert answers:

Absolutely – you don’t know where they’ve been or who has handled them

Thomas asks…

Did your baby actually fit newborn clothes?

I’m 7mnths pregnant and started putting my babies clothes in her draws. I noticed that 98% of the onesies are newborn size..So im a little worried cause I know everyone says to buy clothes bigger BUT aren’t newborn sizes up to 8pds? And they make newborn n 3mnth sizes for a reason, right? So did your baby wear newborns at all or even at least one month???

The Expert answers:

Nope my baby was born 8 lbs and he fit jus right in premies… Newborn were big on him.

John asks…

How much clothes do you buy for newborn baby?

Am going to be a mother of twins soon. And i dont know how much baby clothes to buy for newborn.


The Expert answers:

I know this, believe it or not babies grow quite rapidly up to 6 months old. So i would suggest buying a few pairs. Make sure they are loose but not big as you do not want your child to look like he’s drowning in a pool of yarn. Hehe. Good luck picking out the clothes. Have fun!
