Buying baby clothes can be tough to navigate, and sizing often happens to be the biggest problem. If you always end up buying clothes that are a number too big or too small, we’re here to help you make the right verdict in three short steps.
The sizing of baby clothes often differs from brand to brand, and it’s tough to make the right verdict. Babies of the same age also aren’t always the same size, so it’s a good idea to measure your baby before shopping for clothes to make sure they’ll be the right fit.
Baby clothes will often be labeled with months and years, but not necessarily with the measurements. Check if the size chart is available, especially when shopping online. It’s also a good idea to keep the tags on so you can exchange the clothing that doesn’t fit.
Keep Season in Mind
Buying clothes that are too small is a much bigger problem than buying clothes that are too big—but there’s one catch. If you’re buying baby clothes “for later”, keep in mind there’s a possibility you still won’t be able to use them if the fabric and sleeve size doesn’t match the season.
