On a baby sweater you wouldn't need to leave off the seam sts, that would amount to less than an inch unless it's bulky yarn, so would be okay to leave them. The more room the better for baby and children's clothes.
Yeah... what she said.

The only reason I mentioned the selvedge stitches is that I didn't look to see if there was ribbing or anything. If there is, that might get thrown off slightly, but I wouldn't bother just for size.
