there is no way that you can go by tags on clothes...sometimes they are too big or too small and they are the size that they take...it just depends on the company

yep, it is still very aggrovating though. you would think they could came up with better way of sizes these clothes so that they are all a little closer.

Knowing which size baby clothes to buy for your baby has been a problem since clothes were manufactured out side the home. I would like to find the person that came up with the way that baby clothes are sized. He should be whipped with a wet noodle. Baby clothes should be sized according to weight and length Maybe if a mother’s petition was sent to the manufacturer of infants clothing they would change the way that they are sized

Good question! My son is 14 months old and he wears clothes for 24 month olds. Granted he is a big boy. He weighed in at 25lbs 1oz at his 12 month Dr's appointment. I think it's important to buy clothes based on your childs weight and height and not just on age. How old is your child and what size does he wear?

he is 3 mo. and he mostly wears 6 to 9 mo in most things like onezis and shirts, shorts and paints he is in newborn and mayby a 0-3mo. it really just depends on what i am buying. everything is a different size.
