Not a newborn.... yet

Ever since we have been able to dress Scarlet (yes, there was a point where we couldn't dress her in the NICU), we have had to put her in preemie clothes. I thought I had a decent amount of them, but I still end up doing the laundry almost everyday. I figured to cure this problem, I would just start putting her in newborn jammies. They looked like they may fit her. Afterall, we switched from preemie diapers to newborn diapers a week and a half ago and she does just fine with those (there is not much difference between preemie and newborn in the size. The newborn diapers just have all the bells and whistles with the elastic stuff all over them).

How am I supposed to make the jump from preemie to newborn if there is this much difference (preemie on the left, newborn on the right)?
My attempts were futile. Once I got her in the jammies and zipped up, her little legs couldn't even fill the legs in the jams. She looked ridiculous, not to mention it looked like she was swimming in her jams. It seriously looked like I had put her in jammies that were about 5 sizes too big for her. I swear the package says these jammies are for babies 5-8 pounds. They lie. As for now, I will enjoy my baby being in her adorable preemie clothes. There's just nothing cuter!
Here's the evolution of the diaper. From left to right: Micro-preemie, a little bigger micro-preemie (the one we put Kingston in and it was still way too big for him), preemie and newborn.

man I so know that struggle! There is NO in between when it comes to sizes. Its crazy have these people not ever had infants??? You can try Gap premie they tend to be a little bigger but still small and carters premie in somewhere in-between! Good luck!!! :)
