Finding the right size for toddlers
Finding the right size for babies & toddlers is very easy. With this guide, we would like to try to explain the right sizes to you and possibly simplify your decision.
Before you order, we would also like to ask you to check your baby's size with the help of this information in order to avoid unnecessary returns. In this way, we can make a joint contribution to environmental protection. If the item you ordered is still too big, we recommend that you check whether the baby bodysuit or romper suit for infants could fit in the next few months. Especially in baby or infant age, the little ones grow up to 12 cm per year. If the item you ordered still does not fit, we will of course take it back. When placing your order, please note that there may be variations in size between different manufacturers. However, these deviations are usually rather small.
Sizes for toddlers, such as sleep rompers, pyjamas, jackets, tops...
From the beginning of the 2nd year of life until the completion of the 3rd year of life, children count as toddlers. Here is a simple rule of thumb that you can use for the first years of your child's life and development. - Your child's clothing size corresponds to your child's body size! - So if your daughter or son has a height of 98 cm, this corresponds to a clothing size of 98. You should also consider your child's weight and chest and waist circumference when determining the right size, because clothes that are too tight can cause skin irritation, especially in young children.
We have divided our categories into baby, toddlers and children. In the toddler category we have bodysuits, trousers, jackets, dresses, nightwear and tops. For these, the clothing sizes in the following table apply.
FAQ about the different sizes for toddlers
Take a tape measure and measure the circumference of the head, just above the eyebrows around the head. This value gives the circumference of the head in centimetres. You can also use the age groups to help you get closer to the sizes. We recommend that you order the cap or hat one size larger so that the cap does not fit too tightly on your baby's head.
Take a tape measure and measure your child from head to toe. For example, if your child is 98 cm tall, size 98 would fit. Since toddlers grow quickly, it makes sense to order the overall one size larger.
A baby's, toddler's or child's clothing size corresponds to their height. This means that when you measure your child's height, make sure you measure him or her from crown to sole. It is a good idea to stand your child up straight in the doorway or against a wall. Then place the tape measure at the top of the back of the head and pull the tape measure down to the sole. The value in centimetres is your child's dress size. It is also a good idea to measure your child's chest circumference. Measure it by placing a centimetre tape measure horizontally at the height of the nipples.
Here, too, the height of your child corresponds to the clothing size. For underwear, it is always advisable to measure the circumference of the chest and the torso so that the vest is not too tight. The chest circumference is measured horizontally at the nipple level and the torso circumference is measured by placing the centimetre measure directly under the chest.
You can determine the size of trousers or jeans by knowing your child's height or by measuring him or her from the top of the head to the bottom, without shoes. For trousers and jeans, the waist size and length are equally important. Measure the waist circumference with a tape measure. And the leg length is measured from the side of the waist down to the ankle. You can also take your child's current trousers and measure them.
