The Basics: Babies Grow at Their Own Pace

In general, baby clothing is sized by age. Newborn clothing is marked as NB (for newborn), infant clothing is marked by month (for example, 0-3M) and toddler clothing is marked by age (for example, 2T for two-year-olds). But there are some hiccups with this convention.

Can babies wear clothes that are too big?

If you’re buying for your unborn baby, in general it’s best to buy 0-3 month clothes, as newborn size can be outgrown very quickly. It’s important to never dress them in clothes that are much too big though, especially sleepwear. It could be a suffocation risk.

How do you know if a baby grow is too small?

Your baby’s clothes are too small if:

  1. The leg snaps pop open.
  2. You take off your baby’s pants, and there is a line where the elastic or buttons irritated the skin.
  3. Shirts roll up over the belly.
  4. When you push the sleeves up, it cuts off their circulation.

Buy only a few 0-3 month size baby clothes: Your baby will grow so fast in those first few weeks that he’ll probably bump up to size 3-6 month before you know it. So have plenty of 3-6 month size clothes ready for your newborn before he arrives. … And with bigger clothing, you’ll get so much more wear out of them.
