If your new arrival was over 10lbs did you get much use from the 0-3 band of clothes? Lots of ours don't have guides on the tags (now they're out of packaging and washed etc) but 2 I found had 0-3 months as up to 11lbs.
We at least had the foresight to buy no newborn size, but I would like to get at least some wear from the 0-3

I think it'll depend on the brand, they all seem wildly different!
Zara was 8lb7 when weighed on Monday and has just this weekend started wearing some 0-3 stuff but she's also v long so was growing out of newborn stuff lengthwise rather than width wise. I think some of the up to 1m stuff is 10lb and the 0-3m stuff is more like 14lb.

O was 9lb 7oz, so not quite a 10lber but she still got a lot of wear from 0-3 months and even some newborn clothes. As Isis said, I think newborn/up to one month is typically up to around 10lbs and 0-3 months up to 14 lbs.

J wasn't over 10lb (he was 9lb 9oz), and 0-3 only lasted him 2 weeks, 3-6 didn't last much longer.
He was in 6-9 by around 6 weeks old.

U was 4kg exactlt at birth and was in 6-9 months by 11 weeks because of her length as opposed to her mass.

Interesting stuff!! So fingers crossed the outfits I'm in love with are the more generous brands!! And that folk don't buy us small outfits for Baxter ha ha

N went straight into 3-6 month vests and was totally into 3-6 months at 5 weeks old. (He was 10lb 9.5 oz)
