Question Hurry, need an answer!

A friend of mine had a baby boy yesterday via emergency c-section. She wasn't due until after I am.

I want to get her a gift and go see her today. The baby weighed 5 lbs 12 oz, but he was 20 1/2 inches long.

Will premie clothes fit him, or should I go with a 0-3? I would like to get premie since I'm sure he doesn't have much to wear now, but I don't know about the length.

Any ideas?

I'd probably go with Newborn size. It'd be between preemie and 0-3.

I'd go with newborn, if not the next size up, too. It's better to have something that's too big than too small.

Oh, I never thought of the newborn size. That should work!

Thanks ladies!

Brianna was a tin y bit heavier than that, but the same length. Newborn worked great for her!

I'd definitely go with newborn size.

Shelby was 5 lbs, 7 oz, and 16.5 inches long, and wore preemie size for a little over a month.

Jacob was 6 lbs even, and 18 inches long and wore preemie for only a few weeks. He wore newborn size for a little over a month after that.

I'd agree that newborn would probably fit this baby better since it's an inbetween size.
