What size clothes for an 18 inch baby?

I have a 19 inch Lane who wears newborn, but I have and 18 inch baby coming and I don’t know if he needs newborn or preemie. He wont be here for a couple weeks and I want to get him some new clothes before he gets home.

My Easton & Elliott are 18" and they wear preemie clothes - but brands can vary in size like Gerber which runs small.

All the 18 inchers that I have done, wore preemie sized clothing.

Preemie …usually Carters !

Thanks ladies. I have a special little guy coming in a couple of weeks and didn’t want to buy the wrong size for him.

For my 18’’ babies I purchase the preemie in the Carters Brand.
