Does your child...?

My son is 5 months. His clothes are 6-9 months, which I know is pretty normal. He's right around 16lbs now. But his feet fit into 18-24 month old socks????? is this just a size difference thing? because his feet don't look anywhere that big to be fitting into 2 year old socks....but the 6-1year old socks don't fit him?!?!?! anyone else have this happen?

  • It's normal. My son is only 2 but wears the same size as most 4-year-old boys. I wear a size 10 and my husband wears a size 15 so we expected it. Plus, socks always seem to fit funny for kids.

  • My DD is almost 10 mos. Wearing 6-9 mo and 12 mo clothes, but wears size 18-36 mo socks. My 2 yo wears size 3-5 yr socks. But 2T and 24 mo size clothes are too small, and 3T is too big.

  • Lol, my princess is the same way. She's 9 months old and wears either 12 or 18 months (depending on the brand) comfortably. Her socks are 12 months i think and just slightly big. I was worried, until i saw this question. Thanks for asking! ^__^

  • My son was born wearing size 2 shoes.....ugh. He didnt get to wear all those cute newborn shoes.

  • My son was wearing a size 5 shoe at 11 months. He was wearing 9 mo. clothing by 6 mo. It's all normal. They say that you pretty much double their age and that's the size they wear. Babies start to slow down on their growth around 1.
