I say don’t argue with the hormonal pregnant lady and let her buy as many as she wants, it’s her money and if she wants to waste it then it’s her prerogative. ๐Ÿ™‚

It depends how frequently you do laundry I guess : ) I’ve always had 6 pajamas 6 outfits for each size from newborn-12mnths. They outgrow cloths extremely fast so its not worth buying a lot for me.

Let her buy everything she wants. Now, if she’s asking you to buy them for her, then that is different.

AngelS has a good calculation but I think we had even less than that and it was still shocking after the first load of laundry that she’s outgrown the clothes she wore in the first week.

Just tell her to buy what she wants so she feels prepared but keep it in the package…then she can return it for the bigger sizes.  My sister-in-law definitely NEVER used newborn clothes.  Her son is now wearing 18 months at 9 months!

Yeah, I would echo others and say just let her get what she wants/thinks she needs and encourage her to keep tags and receipts so she can return anything she ends up not needing. She probably just feels really anxious about being “ready” for the baby, so if that makes her feel ready just let her have that.

Just because she is measuring ahead doesn’t mean that she will have the baby early. It can mean either bub is big (she may even run over her due date if its her first child) or just in an awkward position. You can never guestimate the size of a baby IMO. I always measured ALOT bigger and my baby was small and had heaps of clothes in the wrong size. You can never really plan for a baby with exactly what you need untill you know how big bub is after birth.

She is going to get whatever she wants as it is HER baby. Remember mummy’s know best Wink let her do it her own way, there is nothing worse than people telling you what to do when your trying to fit into a new role.

Let her buy what she wants for herself but you and your mom can just buy her bigger sized clothes.  If she questions why, you can tell her that you’d like to give her options or the the baby will grow into them or something.

Honestly the last month is so hard, but it sounds like she is taking it extra hard!  I would try to get used items from once upon a child or similar.  Then, you aren’t out much $.  Or, try to talk her into leaving tags on things, and tell her you will wash them for her if she needs that many.  We had lots, since we had handmedowns from friends, and I think probably 5 was more than enough.  My baby was 8.5 pounds @ 39 weeks if that helps, and he was 11lbs @ 4 weeks I think.

PS  I measured ahead for awhile then measured behind…it just had to do with the shape of my tum and when I dropped.
