How do I know what size to buy?
L’ovedbaby clothing is quite true to weight, and is designed to be form-fitting and tailored to the body. Since cotton shrinks after the first machine wash/dry, we account for this shrinkage by cutting our baby clothing slightly long, so that it shrinks down to its intended fit.
|0-3 Months||7-12 lbs.|
|3-6 Months||12-16 lbs.|
|6-9 Months||16-19 lbs.|
|9-12 Months||19-22 lbs.|
|12-18 Months||22-25 lbs.|
|18-24 Months||25-28 lbs.|
Should I choose NB/Preemie or 0-3 Months?
The newborn/preemie size is intended for four to seven pound babies (1.8kg - 3.2kg), and fits quite accurately. The zero to three months size is intended for seven to 12 lbs (3.2kg - 5.5kg) and while definitely longer and a little bit roomier than the newborn size, it still offers a nice tailored fit in the torso and arms.
All of L’ovedbaby clothing is cut a little long to account for the shrinkage that will occur after first machine wash and dry since our baby clothing is made with organic cotton and includes no synthetic blends. If you are looking for a form-fitting homecoming outfit or a newborn photos outfit, we recommend the newborn size. Just keep in mind that you may need to line dry your baby clothing if you feel that it is going to be too small for your little one once it is machine washed/dried. It's really a preference as to what you are hoping to use it for (immediate wear versus longer-term fit).
What's the difference between white, beige, and stone?
White is a pure, clean white. Beige is a cream-colored hue. Stone is a very light shade of khaki (and is found in all 6 of the 3-tone stripe colorways). All three of these gender-neutral colors are beautiful and complement all of our other solid colors.
