It is impossible to guess what weight a baby will be until it is born. Mothers can be told they are having small babies and deliver nine-pound bruisers, and vice versa. Newborn baby clothes may never fit the baby or may only fit for a few weeks. Buying them in
bulk is pointless, so it’s best to buy a few essential newborn sized clothes and wait to see what size the baby is.
Remember that clothes are a popular gift for friends and family, so lots will arrive once the baby comes. Plenty of things can be bought after the birth. Be prudent when buying clothes until the baby is born or you can waste a lot of money.
