Baby sizes

Baby sizes are 0-3 m 3-6 m 6-9 m and 12 m. Where the sam hill is months 10 and 11? What size should I buy for those months? I'd like to hit the sales and buy stuff for the future, but how do I know whether to buy warm or cold things when they don't have months 10 and 11???

  • It's all a guess! ...and it's hard to predict what size your baby will may have a very little baby or you may have a big baby by the time winter rolls around. Ya never know!!! My daughter was 5 months last Christmas and in sizes 9-12 months. My neice who is 8 months this Christmas is still in 3-6 months clothing!! But to answer your question if you want to by 10-11 months clothing for next winter I would buy 12 months.

  • LOL! Baby sizes are confusing. Generally a 10 or 11 month old will be in size 12 months. It really depends on the baby and the clothing company. I have seen some sizes that have said 9-12 months but most of the time it will just say 12 months. Same with 18 months. There are no "special sizing for 12-14 months, or 14-18months, etc. My advice is if you want to buy clothes ahead of time then I would base it off the weight your child is now. If they are average weight then you can buy size 12 months for when she is 10 and 11 months old but if she is smaller or larger then I would adjust to that.

  • they also come in 6-12 months, most babies are in 12m size by then tho.

  • There are some 9-12 month, but you have to look for them.

    I wouldn't count on your baby wearing 12 month clothes when s/he is 12 months old. I had one in 2T's at that age and one going into 3T's!

    Don't try to buy too far in advance......

  • Look at the weight charts. some brands do what you said, and some have a 9-12 month size. But they all cover the same weights over all. I only go by weight now.
