    Some toddlers grow quite fast and naturally, they tend to overgrow their clothes. Some parents are keen on the fitness aspect and buy clothes cut to size. I think it would make more sense to buy a cut above their size which translates into savings. For good measure, they should be easy to wash.

    When we were young, my mother would always buy us clothes which were one size bigger. The reason is that we grow fast and for the clothes to last, we had to persevere in wearing clothes larger than our body for in a few months they will fit us. I think that is the attitude of mothers during that time. But now I can see parents spending more for the clothes of their children which I think is only right.

    I think buying a size two too big is a great idea as they are going to grow into them. It also cuts down the cost of new clothes.

    Well I am a mom guilty of doing this one. Haha. For practical reasons, I always go for a size larger so that the clothes would last. However, my mom-in-law says it should not always be the case, since if the clothes are too big, it would look odd and appear like it wasn't my child's own clothes, especially for my little girl because she is the petite type. So now, I am more aware and let my kids try out fitting the clothes first before buying them.
