Clothing Sizes

Unlike adult clothes sizes, kids clothes are often linked with their age or even weight. Which means for those who don’t have children, just knowing the age of the child will help when buying for another child.

Clothes sizes for children will go from ‘Tiny Baby’, 0-3 months, increasing in 3-6 month intervals as babies grow, right up to 15-16 years old where children will possibly begin to wear clothes in adult sizes anyway. 

If you’re unsure what size the child is, pick something at least one size bigger than the child’s age- some children grow faster than others, but for those who don’t, the child will grow into the item eventually. 

 

Going Age Appropriate 

As well as making sure that the clothes fit the baby or child, it is also important that the clothes are fit for purpose, too. For example, when choosing clothing for a baby it is important that they won’t irritate their skin- choose soft fabrics that are easy to remove and that are easily washable. 

Toddlers will need clothes that are durable, as once they start walking, they will need to make sure that the items of clothing are safe of tripping and choking hazards, so should be free of loose or detachable parts.
Kids clothing should be of a good quality, safe, and comfortable for wearing as they transition and grow. 

 

Think Seasonal 

Thanks to end of season sales and the predictability of the growth of children, its easy to buy clothing suited to kids that will be great for the following year, too. 

Most clothing options are available all-year-round without seasonal up scaled prices- this means you can buy your girls and boys swimwear in the winter or springtime at a marked-down price.

The same goes for their winter coats- these can be expensive peak season, so it’s always handy to have something available for when the chill hits. 

Unless donned with sandcastles and sea creatures, T-shirts are excellent layering tools to create other, more diverse looks. Choose long sleeve tops, shirts, and dresses to create a mix and match look. 

 

Shoes

You can’t talk about how to buy kids clothes without thinking of their feet, too. As kids grow, buying shoes can be incredibly expensive as they could only last a few months before they need to go up to the next size- but equally, it is really important that they are comfortable and supportive so as not to make them trip over and fall. 

Having well-fitting shoes will ensure that they don’t cause any foot problems as their feet grow.

Go to a professional to get their feet measured properly. Kids will only need a few pairs of shoes to see them through the year- for example- a pair of trainers, boots, sandals and school shoes.

Kids will develop their own sense of style over time. Keep them cool, without over spending!

Reception to year 1 transition tips

The kiddies started year 1 in September and it has been a smooth transition into the new school year. They like their teachers and they are getting on  with all their classmates, which is great. I wasn’t really worried about them transitioning from reception to year 1. They are November babies, which makes them some of the oldest in the class, and I felt they were more than ready for year 1. So far so good, year 1 has been brilliant. It is a lot of work compared to reception, but the twins are quite academic, and they had some settling in sessions before the end of the summer term. So they already knew what to expect in year 1.

Reception to year 1 transition tips

Here are some ways you and your child cam smoothly transition from reception to year 1 in primary school –

 

Talk about it

For me and my kids talking helps us with everything. The lines of communication are always open, and I think that helps a lot when dealing with changes likes moving from the foundation stage in reception to key stage 1 in year 1 primary school. It is normal to be a bit anxious when changes happen and us talking about it before the school year starts helped the twins go into  year 1 confident and ready.

 

Settling in sessions

The primary school the twins go to had settling in sessions for the whole school at the end of the summer term. Every child spent a few days in their new class and that helped them have a feel of what was coming in September. The kids got to meet their new teachers and got an idea of what was expected of them in their new class. Settling in sessions are great and I am thankful our school has this in place to ensure the children have a smooth transition into their new classes.

 

Get the children ready

The school has done their own part with the settling in sessions, we parents have to do ours. Getting the children ready for their new class can be done easily over the summer holidays. There’s plenty of time to have a look at what is to come in the new class year and get the children to start practising some school work. Even if this is done for a few minutes every week, it will help the child massively, especially if the move is from reception (which is pretty laid back informal education), to year 1 (which is a lot more formal and serious).

 

Play down your anxieties

It is normal for parents to be anxious about their children starting a new school year, especially year 1. Our children are forever our babies and many of them are only still 5 years old when year 1 starts. It is easy to get worried about the changes and how our children will cope with them, but we need to be careful our anxieties don’t rub off on our children. Using positive words and affirmations help. Also, being  involved with our children’s school work is super helpful. I like knowing what the twins have been up to at school and what they are learning in the class. Attending parent-teacher meetings also help me stay on top of their school work, which keep the worries away.
