Child and baby clothing sizes

The Scandi and continental clothes sizing is based on height, which of course is a much more sensible way of sizing baby clothes than the method we currently use in Ireland. I Have a 9 month old baby in 18-24 month clothing and I also have a 4 year old that still fits in clothes for 2-3 year olds. Its crazy and rarely your child will be in the size that actually corresponds to their age. That type of sizing in more familiar to us though, so in an attempt to simplify the Scandi sizes, I have created the chart below. Please be aware that these are approximate sizes. Its best to measure your child.
