Most european children's wear companies on the Continent use height as an age/size guide.
Now you and I both know that children are not all the same height at the same age (just like adults are not all the same height) but we have found that this method works best for us.
To find what size you need to buy, measure the height of your child (please don't guess as an inch can make a huge difference on a baby or toddler).
If you don't have a wall chart then the most acurate way is to stand your child against a wall and put a rule (or slim stick etc) on top of their head and mark the wall (oops! not on the wallpaper) and then measure the wall rather than the wriggling child.
