I went wayyy over board and bought 21 of each size lol I would probably say about 10 of each id plenty. The ones from next are great coz they have built in scratch mitts and are sooo soft and cute. xx

We had 3 babygro's in 0-3 but we had a lot of newborn outfits for both ours. Jack was only about 2 weeks old before he started getting dressed in mornings!!

We have about 8 newborn babygros and a similar number of 0-3 month ones. I find this is plenty (Lily generally wears a babygro for bed but an outfit during the day). I do about 2 washes every 3 days (our stuff as well as baby's).
The thing I've found you can't have enough of is little vests to go under the babygros. We have about 14 in newborn and 0-3 month sizes. I find that these get pooed on fairly regularly and so have to be changed more.
I definitely recommend the sleveless vests - far easier to get little flailing arms into than ones with sleeves, and it's the body that needs to be kept warm anyway.

I always found 6 to be enough though admittedly I did have more!!! Remeber you will probably get quite a few gifts in these sizes too. Also I never bothered buying newborn in anything as mine were into 0-3 months quite quickly so if you are buying newborn dont get too many

Sorry, I've written a bloomin' essay, but wanted to add that Lily weighed 7lbs 10oz at birth and has been putting weight on steadily, and is still in newborn size now (she's a month old). She's only got another fortnight or so until we'll need to use the 0-3 month ones, I think.
