1. You will want to go with the basics.

The basics are bodysuits, layette gowns, one-pieces, sleepers, hats and socks. Baby Riddle has a checklist of the numbers of the baby clothing pieces, which can be found on their site

2. Then you should think about the quantity.

Great questions to ask yourself: Realistically, how much time do I have to do laundry? How much laundry do I want to do? The more baby items you have on hand, the less laundry you will need to accomplish. It is a good idea to plan for any setbacks Cesarean section, complications with your delivery, the needs of multiple children or health issues with your infant.

3. Next, consider the size of the clothing.

Though it is hard to predict the size of your newborn, according to several studies the average weight is between 6-8 lbs. The majority of birth weights are between the 6 lb and 7 lb range. Many women purchase the 0-3 Month size and the clothes are too large for their infant. Unless you have a history of having large babies, 9 lbs or more, it is a good rule of thumb to purchase the size Newborn to avoid this frustration. Usually your child will fit into this size for a month or two. Baby Riddle suggests being prepared with the Newborn and 0-3 Months sizes.
