Baby Clothes Size Charts

It's crazy how fast babies grow! It seems like just yesterday I was switching baby boy from newborns to 0-3 month clothes. As I was sorting through his clothes, I realized he wasn't going to be able to wear some of the outfits for very long! Each brand has such different sizing and babies grow so fast it is easy to get confused!

I kept wondering when he was going to fit in it (it looked huge), until I looked up Gymboree's sizing chart and realized the 3 meant 3 years old. In hopes of not making that mistake again, or the chance of missing and adorable outfit I looked up the sizing chart for the most common baby clothes.

Carter's and OshKosh B'gosh (which also includes these brands: Child of Mine, Just One You, Genuine Kids, and Precious Firsts). size their clothes by only one month listed. This drives me crazy. You'd think that 6m means that the baby would start wearing the outfit at 6 months, not that he would wear it until he was 6 months old. Gymboree and Gap/Old Navy have a larger range for their sizes in baby clothes. One of Doran's cutest outfits is a 6-12 month... can't wait!

***UPDATE 2/20/13*** This post has been gaining a lot of pinterest traffic. I just wanted to let you know that all sizing guides came from the companies websites. Gap and Old Navy are grouped together because their website's have the exact same listings. Hope this chart helps you stay organized!

Here's a more practical guide (not so cutesy).

Does anyone else have a hard time moving their babies up to the next size clothing? I do! It is just so hard to admit he's growing up that fast! Baby Boy has high water pants and stretched bodysuits before I finally switch him over. It is fun to see him in new outfits though!

Thank you so much for sharing such useful information my baby’s wardrobe is a disaster. I think this might help me taking care and arranging my baby’s apparels.
