Red face baby stretch headbands... what size?

hello girls!! i know i haven't posted too much, but between my two girls (4 and 13 months) and my very big belly (expecting by december 26th c-section) i feel blessed enough just to be able to read new posts a bit every day before i go to bed and manage to make some clippies and bows for my two girls and some friends i sell them to..

I bought some veeeeeeeery nice colors of a soft elastic to make baby headbands for my new coming baby girl, but don't know what size to make them, and dont want to wait for her to be born and measure her head to start!!!

does anyone know what sizes are used in general for elastic and stretchy headbands??
thanks!!

I think I seen somewhere that a new born head band should be 12 in, I hope that helps let me do some reserching and make sure.

I do 10" for newborn
12" for 0-3 months
14" for 3-6 months
16" for 6-9 months
18" for 9-12 months

So far they have fit perfect when people have ordered. Mine are made from stretch lace though and have about a 2" stretch to them .. so a 10" could stretch to a 12" ... hth

I've also done 12 inches for newborn. I had a friend measure her newborn's head for me and I did a 12 inch headband for her, and it worked perfectly

BTW I have 2 girls also, and am due in Dec congrats to you!

Measure a baby that you know and go by that. Some babies heads are bigger than other though.

I measure my lace unscretched. So I cut 10" unstretched, and than it stretches to 12" I hope that makes sense...

It seems like you already have an answer though
