Default baby clothing size

i received a baby gift from a friend in antwerp. there usually is a size of either age ie newborn, or 0-3 months sometimes including weights of the baby or measurements... but all this cardigan has a label with shop name (c&a) and what it is made of etc and the number 62. what does that mean?

That is good. I have had terrible luck researching baby clothes. Seems like every other site lists something different. It may depend on the manufacturer, or maybe its starting to get a bit more standardized.

When I was starting my infant wear company and researching the whole size issue, I found that there was no standard in infant apparel. Or any apparel item for that matter. This was a bit frustrating. I liked that Gap Kids tended to run true to size or "large" compared to other baby clothes. I have found that because Carter's and Gerber have been around so long and the clothes are so readily available, that people tend to assign their sizing as some sort of norm. Carter's probably was true to size when they started 135 years ago but babies are born bigger now, generally, so the line appears to run small. When designing our line, Stylease, which are one-piece rompers designed to look like separates, it was important to get the sizing just right because a one-piece has to address the trunk length of the baby, in addition to the inseam and arm length. Stylease runs true-to-size, which some would say, runs large. When buying off the web, always ask for a size chart if one is not available. Also consider climate. If the baby lives in a seasonal climate, you can't just get the next size up to be safe, because it might not fit when the weather changes... Just make sure the company has a good exchange or return policy in case you need to swap a size. Happy shopping!

I had the same issue...my brother in law gave us some clothes from Europe. The best sizing chart (easy to read at a glance) is at littlelunablue .com/Size_Chart

Smile Re: baby clothing size

Am a bit late on the response but in essence, European clothing runs 'true to size' as it is based on the length/height of your child, so 62 is 62cm...etc. (The only marked difference I have noticed is with French sizing, which seems smaller - I think a 62 there means up to 62cm, while in other European sizing a 62 means 62cm to the next size up, which is also how a lot of other places like the UK/Australia seem to work the labelling).

Saying 0-3 months, while useful in a broad sense, is a little misleading as, for example, my son is already 59cm at 6 weeks old while my daughter was the same after 3 months! She continues to wear smaller clothes (9-12 months at the age of 2), so basically, each baby is different anyway!

Good luck! :-)
