What size to buy for the summer????

They have the cutest summer clothes out for little girls and I want to start getting some stuff for Ava but I have no idea what size to get her. She is growing like a weed. Right now she is 5 months and is wearing 9months which fit her perfectly so I'm not sure if I should get her 12 months or 18 months for the summer.....what do you guys think?

Re: What size to buy for the summer????

I've been getting dresses in size 18 mos and i bought some pants/tshirts yesterday at the children's place in 12 months becuase i know she'll wear them in the spring -- however Emily is kinda big so I'm thinking I should switch to 18 mos. How many lbs is Ava now?

Hi Danielle! Wow, Ava is getting so big!! Katherine is 17 lbs. now and still in 3-6, but just beginning to grow out of them. I think we're going on a shopping spree today to Babies R Us and I was thinking of starting with some 6-9 for now through the spring, but I would think by summer time, they'd be wearing 12 mos. I don't know, 18 mos. seems a bit big, but I guess, buy 12 mos. for now and go up as needed.

I hope you're enjoying your week off!!

At last months Appt...Ava was 17lbs...she goes again next week so I'm thinking she'll be about 19lbs by then.....she is really tall too so that is also part of the problem.....last appt she was almost 27 inches.

Erin.....I am totally loving my week off....I haven't done much....but it beats being at work....how about you? Have fun at BRU...they have cute spring/summer stuff.

Re: What size to buy for the summer????

Emily was 15.3 at her last visit, 25.5" and 3-6 mos she has definately outgrown, and so she's in 9 mos now. Carter's 9 mos are fine but in a lot of other brands the length is getting to small on her, so I definately think 12 or 18 months for her.

I think Ava would be the same, and remember, some of these summer clothes she'll be able to wear into september so even if they are a little big in june they might not be a few months later while it is still warm out.

ETA -- how about some new pics of Ava?? I havent been on a lot but I have this week off since I'm a teacher too and I've love to see her!

Alex is 5 months, over 17lbs and fitting into clothes that range anywhere from 6mos through 12mos. I picked up some summer clothes over the weekend in size 12 mos and 18mos... it's just so frustrating that every clothing line runs differently with sizing! Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon

definately -- carter's and children's place seem to run normal-big -- but a lot of the stuff people have gotten us from kohl's as well as the little me stuff (they have an outlet in riverhead) i am finding to run very very small. she's already out of 9 months as far as that stuff is concerned.

What's REALLY frustrating is when people buy her very expensive clothing (i.e. Ralph Lauren) in a bigger size (6mos) and it doesn't even fit her! I can't tell you how many outfits I had to just store away without her wearing them...
