As a new parent, there is nothing more exciting than preparing for the arrival of your little bundle of joy. Among the many things you need to do before the big day, one important task is to make sure you have the right-sized onesies for your newborn. While it may seem like a simple task, choosing the right size can make a big difference in your baby's comfort and overall wellbeing.
Here are some tips to choose the perfect "take baby home from hospital" size!
- Newborns can vary in size and shape based on a variety of factors, but full-term babies on average weigh between 6 and 8 pounds.
- They are usually between 19 and 21 inches long. Our 0-3 months size fits up to about 10 pounds if you want to give the gift the baby can wear when leaving the hospital.
- Of course, if you think the baby is going to be very large, you can opt for the next size up—the 3-6 months size which fits up to about 16 pounds and typically fits babies up to 6 months.
