Chrissy Teigen is quickly learning just how important those last few weeks of pregnancy can be for a baby — it's when they do some of their best growing. Because Miles, who was born on May 17, was three weeks premature and clocked in on the scale at just four pounds, five ounces, Chrissy is struggling to find clothes that will fit his tiny frame — and other moms are totally commiserating with her.
"Nothing fits my teenie premie," the mom of two wrote on Twitter. "Not enough stuff out there! I gotta learn to sew. Miles is tired of your body shaming, society!"
Several Twitter users commented swiftly, sharing that they had the same struggle with their small babies, preemies or not.
my baby was 5 lbs 5 oz at full term, and she needed preemie clothes! cant imagine how teeny your babe is— Emily Zolman (@undimmedheart) June 4, 2018
Aww, tiny baby!! My baby was 3.3 lbs and you’re right, there was hardly any clothes because preemie clothes was still too big.— Adri C. (@cuevas_mrs) June 4, 2018
For sure. My first and fourth were just a little early. They came home with me from the hospital and everything, but they were so small, 4.5lbs and 5.5lbs. My other 2 were 7.5 lbs at 39 weeks and 7lbs at 38 weeks. Those couple extra weeks is where all the baby chub comes from.— Jillian Hadley (@Cheatara) June 4, 2018
Mine was 3 weeks early as well and as 4 lbs even. Only found 4 onesies that would fit her. Had to wash daily. She’s almost 12 lbs now.— 3rd and 17 of the Dark Order (@vestan) June 4, 2018
Other users offered up baby clothes boutiques and Etsy shops that might fit her needs, but the best comment came from another mom whose baby was three weeks early. And her casually hilarious tweet proves another point altogether — each woman's pregnancy is completely unique.
