Baby Clothes (37w2d)

I was blessed with a lot of 0-3 Month clothing at my shower yesterday. I washed a load of clothes, towels, and blankets today so Nano can have some clothes when s/he gets home from the hospital that are fresh and clean and I noticed something interesting.

Every brand of baby clothes in the 0-3 month at least is a different size. I got Gerber, Carter's, Disney, and Faded Glory brands at my shower and while folding them I was astounded. I lined up the 4 brands on top of each other smallest to biggest and there is a big difference.

***All four brands on top of each other Gerber, Carters, Disney, Faded Glory from top to bottom***

Observations:

Gerber is the TINIEST, more what I would think a small newborn would wear. I actually refrained from opening the 2nd 5 pack of onesies in the 0-3 month size from Gerber because I don't know if Nano will even fit in the ones I did open/wash.

***Gerber on left. Carter's on right***

Carters is the LONGEST, but seems sort of slim. I don't know if it is because it is so much longer or what?

Faded glory is the biggest, but still seems so itty bitty for a baby to be in (I guess I'm not used to baby clothes yet). :o)

Disney brand is in between Carters and Faded Glory.

It's so surreal to wash and put away baby clothes! I also assembled my pack-in-play today and the stroller is in front of the love-seat. We are getting close!

I've noticed Carters always runs larger. Trinity can still fit into a lot of Carters 2T clothing, she is 3T in everything else. They always grew out of the Disney stuff fast. fun fun fun!

Carters is our favorite because Trevor is long and slim - it has been pretty true to age. Gerber runs small... grew out of those pretty fast. The others I didn't have much of. But they definitely grow out of EVERYTHING fast! You really won't need much newborn size and a few 0-3. They spend more time in 3-6 and 6-9. :) Getting excited for you!

Carters is my favorite, they wash the best, last the longest, and have been the truest to size. I would say stock up on those. The baby will be here soon, so exciting!
