Once your child is growing, he or she will start to participate with other kids. With this, you may want to buy your child toddler couture clothing in order to build up his or her confidence when interacting with other kids. This clothing will also help your kid attract new friends as they will be curious about the cute and unique design of the outfit.

However, there is a notion that designer clothing for toddlers is very expensive. To start withthat will come into their mind is that they are made by popular designers and would cost them several hundreds of dollars for just one outfit. The truth is that as long as it has a unique design and high quality fabric, then it can be considered toddler couture clothing.

If you are like me, finding the accurate size for your toddler is pretty testing especially if he or she is larger or smaller than the average size. In my case, my youngster is an very healthy baby boy and I did not know what to expect. As a recent born, my youngster was ten pounds and 23 inches tall!

I mean the kid was gigantic! Almost all the clothes we received from our relatives and friends did not fit because they were expecting an typical size kid. Furthermore, I could not really understand the sizing chart because they were labeled in age instead of the real sizes! Although the sizes are labeled with infant/kids age, we really did not have any indication to how large the sizes were and if it would fit our overgrown son.

It was a hassle to ask the storehouse clerk each time. And I am sure there are a lot of parents out there with kids who are large or smaller than the typical size chart. So, I decided to write an article about child sizes by their age, weight, and height. Hopefully, this will help other new parents like myself. It is hard enough to raise a kid for the first time let alone have to lose sleep and squander money on clothing that barely fit their children.


It is confusing to determine if your youngster is a toddler or baby size. Also, some brands label the sizes as child instead of baby when crossing certain thresholds. The ages that are classified as toddler are from 12 months old to 3 years old typically. It would make sense to have a universal size chart for all clothing brands, but in reality this is not always the case.
