Babygro sizing

Postby lazylexis » Sat Jun 09, 2012 1:26 am

Well Jacob is 6 weeks old and long.That combined with a bulky cloth bum means we are struggling with babygros.Tesco 0-3 months won't do up at the crotch,mothercare centre opening ones will do up but with neck stretch,same with Asda. The mothercare ones that have the asymmetric poppers like a Jamie jumper are ok. Some are also getting short in the leg,others are ok. Our 3-6 m M&S ones are absolutely huge.
So any recommendations on larger fitting babygros or smaller fitting 3-6m ones?

JoJo mama Bebe are fab Really lovely and not too tight in the body IMO DD is in 12-18mth with cloth and soakers which is roughly the same size as the rest of her clothes. Or of course Frugi.

I used to put socks on ones that were too big to stop them flopping off her feet and just fold the arms back.

That's a great tip - I'd have never thought of doing that at all! :D

I have always found Sainsburys ones to be quite generous - A is still just about in 0-3 in those while she has grown out of all the other brands x

Sainsburys is fab for long babies :wink: I have a very long slim baby here and they are perfect for him. I do sometimes find they are actually too long in the leg, so I cut the feet off and hem them up so that he can wear them out and about with shoes on or socks in your case

H&M do 2-4 mths size which is good for that inbetween sizes stage, I also like the ones we got from TKMaxx. I've been using shortie sleepsuits with an extra blanket as well.

I've found that Asda seem to be designed for short, rotund babies, Tesco for short babies. Mothercare and Sainsburys are giving the best fit for mine (apart from the odd nice expensive ones I've picked up second hand), who is long and thin.

I have found Next one's to be the last one's A grows out of, she need's 6-9 now apart from in next, tesco's she grows out of the quickest.
