Packing Diaper Bag For Hospital

I'm a ftm, and unsure if I should pack both a newborn and 3 month outfit or just newborn? How big does baby have to be to not fit into newborn clothes?

My NB clothes say baby up to 8lbs. I packed a 0-3 month just incase along with a NB outfit. Since I don't really know how much my LO could weigh since I know at my 32 week ultrasound she was a week ahead of schedule so I'm just making myself prepared :)

I packed a newborn and 3 month outfit for my son and the 3 month outfit swallowed him whole because he only weighed 6lbs 15oz he was in newborn until he was 6 weeks old and he weighed about 9lbs but every baby is different I will be packing the same thing for this baby just because you never know

I would def say one of each. My baby was 8lbs 3oz when she was born and 7lbs 13oz when we took her home and 0-3 month clothes pretty much just feel right off her.

I packed one of each. She fit into the newborn size. Seems most do.

My son was ten lbs and still fit into most newborn, for about aweek lol. My daughter as 6lbs 14 oz, but lost a whole lbs in the hospital and was actually in some preemie for 2 weeks.

I packed both with my first and a friend had to bring a premie outfit for me because the newborn was to big for him.... he weighed 7lbs10oz and was 19 inches long

My son was 8 lb 6oz and newborn fit him for a few weeks.

My daughter weighed 7lbs 13oz and the newborn outfit was actually really big on her but i had also packed a 0-3 just in case bc my ob never gave me an estimated weight.

Both is what I would pack I know for sure my other 2 if I did put them in newborn it didn't last very long cuz they were both big.
