Clothes size ? for 6 month old Livy's Mommy 1 child; Slidell, Louisiana 419 posts

Im getting my baby's 6 month pictures done around halloween, she'll be 6 mos on the 27th of october. Im looking at clothes for her to wear but unsure if i should get 3-6 or 6-12 months. I dont know why they dont have a 6-9 month, atleast where im looking, at gymboree. For her 4 month check up she weighed exactly 16 pounds and 26 inches long. Should i just get her the 6-12? I may just have to wait till that time gets closer. And as far as shoe size goes i know every baby is different but what is the average size for 6 month olds?

I don't know if this helps, but my son was 16lbs and 26in at his 6 month check-up, and he is just now (at 7 months, 17lbs, 27in) wearing their 3-6 month clothing. The 6-12 does fit, just a little big. If I were you, I'd go with the 6-12 month stuff! Plus then it's usable for a little longer :)

Gymboree runs big IMO. I'd say 3-6 month.

My dd is 7 months old, between 15-16 pounds and between 25-26 inches and she wears a 6-9 months, so i'd say you would be safe to go with the 6-12. I can't really help you with the shoe size because my baby has little feet like me and she can still wear a size 1 and 2.
