Aria was only 5lbs 11.5oz born and then dropped down to around 5lbs. As a result she was (and still is) wearing tiny baby clothes. All of the clothes that we had in readiness for her arrival were too big for her so we had to purchase smaller clothes after she was born.
I found that a lot of shops don’t stock outfits in tiny baby size (or at least our local shops don’t), just sleepsuits and vests. We had a Christening to attend and I didn’t want poor Aria to have to wear a sleepsuit when everyone else was dressed up nicely. We went down to Spytty Retail Park and, after visiting every shop there, managed to find two smart outfits that were small enough for Aria. I couldn’t resist buying both.
First up we have this gorgeous dungaree outfit from ASDA, this set included the dungarees and the top, the bootees that Aria is wearing were bought for us as a gift. This outfit fits Aria perfectly now, it was a little big on her at first, but still wearable. I do find ASDA tiny baby to be a little bigger than other shops tiny baby ranges.
I couldn’t resist adding this photo into the post, she was not happy with mummy taking her photos!
The second of the two outfits that we bought, and what Aria ended up wearing to the Christening, came from Boots. This set contained the dress and leggings, she is wearing a long sleeve vest underneath and again the bootees that were bought as a gift, I am aware that the pink bootees don’t really go with the purple dress but these are the only ones that fit her so they had to do! This outfit is Boots small baby size and fitted her perfectly, it is getting a little tight on her now.
