I normally get them a size bigger but they only fit him for the one year. I normally donate them to a friend after.
I used to do that. Now the kids are old enough that they can get a few years out of a coat before they need a new one.
I havent really done that.
We buy the six grandkids new coats every year...sometimes it is nice to get something new..they are so thrilled get to pick it out. I buy them at JCPenneys when they are having their 50% off. I buy alot of used clothes for them all year at a thrift store so the coats are a treat.
My son is usually between sizes at the start of the school year so i do buy a size up for him to "grow into" Otherwise, 6 months into the school year I have to buy everything over again. I always get 2 years out of coats.
Nope, you are not I think my dd is on yr 3 with hers.
I do that
i used to do that until now my kids are now fashion trendy ( so they think) teens who a growing to much. My girls taste changes way to fast.
My son is kinda hatling some on growth but he is having changing taste as well too so since I only have two kids I buy what they like when I can
