Hi and welcome to KH!
For many patterns you can use larger needles and a heavier weight yarn to make a larger size. Going from newborn to 12-18 months is quite a bit bigger however. You can always add on extra sts, depending on your gauge to widen the pattern and adjust for the length that you need but it might be easier, especially if you're rather new to knitting, to find a similar pattern which is made for the larger size.
