TBH at least 10 of each and in the first weeks they may go through an outfit at every feed between sicking up and nappy leaks/wee'ing on their clothes

I'd buy a couple of 7 pack body suit vests and at least 3-4 sleepsuit sets of 3 and prepare to have the washing machine on flat out But if you buy many more it's a waste as well because they won't get more than a month or two's wear in them at this age due to fast growth

It's a really clever little device

Newborns tend to be snuffly and congested and obviously they can't Bblow their noses so this little device gently sucks anything out.
