Im going to go over to the kiddie korner consignment store to look at baby clothes, but need some help with sizing. I’m guessing the smaller kits 17-19" probably wear preemie sized clothes…yes? After that im lost. What sizes do your 20-21" babies wear, and how about the bigger babies like Sweet Pea, what size should I get for her she’s 23"?
I put my 18-20 inch babies in newborn. It’s a small bit big on the 18 inch babies but not much. Preemie, depending on the brand, is a better fit for a 15-17 inch baby and it might be a bit tight on a 17 incher. However, I’ve seen some “preemie” outfits that could fit an average 6 month old child. I don’t do the bigger babies so I’m no help there
If you use BB’s recommended body for Sweet Pea then she or he will wear size 3-6 months clothes, 20 -21" 0-3 months, and some Newborn.
18-19" Preemie and Newborn (Mostly Newborn)
No I didn’t get the BB bodies for sweet pea, I got a front loading body. Should that make a difference In The clothing size?
In that case, I would try 0-3 months and the 3-6 months. It will depend on the size of the front loading body.
If the body is BB front loading body then size 0-3 months. If you had the body custom made then you will need size 3-6 months clothes.
It’s this body from dolls by sandie for 22-24" babies. Im going to gather the front and the bottom area before i put her together though. i saw another post where someone described how to do the gathered chest and butt.
With that body, I think I would go with size 3-6 month clothes.
I found a few things today, but not nearly as much as I’d imagined. I guess that’s what happens when you wait until the last day of the sale…everything is all picked over.
