My best mate had a baby today at 35 weeks and so he's only a tiddler (5lbs 6oz). I wanted to get her some sleepsuits in the early size as I assume he'll not fit the newborn stuff.
I popped to Tesco this morning but they didn't have anything in that size. I know they were a good size for Little Miss who was 6lbs 12oz.
I'm popping out after dinner to have a look elsewhere but wondered if anyone knew what Sainsburys sizing was like? I've looked online and Matalan's "tiny baby" stuff is up to 8lbs which sounds big. I'm sure Tesco was around the 7lbs - 7.5lbs mark.
Mr GB is off out for a pint with her husband tonight (it's now a tradition for them) so wanted to be able to pass them over tonight. I can get to Sainsburys, another Tesco, Next or a Boots?

I know Next used to do tiny baby stuff, maybe check their website. I've always found Sainsbury's quite generous for sizing, so newborn is probably going to be a bit too big - no idea if they do a smaller size.

Sainsbury's do a 5lb size, then 7lb size, up to 1 month, up to 3 months etc. so the 5lb size sounds spot on.
Yeah I think Next is your best bet looks like their sizing chart goes that low... www.next.co.uk/.../WinHelpSGC.asp

You could try H&M too, not sure on weights but their >1month size is pretty small.
Ahhh! Thanks all! I couldn't find Sainsburys info and only when posting did I remember Next so hadn't checked their size guide.
Will try Sainsburys, and if not pop to Next. I just wanted a pack of them so they had a few. Already got a few bits for her and a 3-6 sleepsuit so just an interim early present for them

Thanks Saisi - it's somewhere to try later this week if I can't get anything tonight. I wanted to get it today if possible & can't get into town.

OMG! Totally forgot about Mothercare! Haha! I can get there too. Will have a quick look on the website now

Hmm - might try Mothercare instead of Sainsburys now. But not sure whether to get Tiny (up to 5lbs) or Early (up to 7.5lbs)?
17/04/2013 at 16:49
I'd go with the > 5lb. They will probably be a good fit right away.

I tried the other Tesco first and then Mothercare. All I could get was a pack of plain white ones. No selection of the early baby stuff! Such a shame.
Still, at least she should have something to put him in now that won't swamp him.
