shes 18 mnths and pretty tall

just wondering if i ordered anything else from there what size i should go for 2-3 years or 3-4 years, which sounds a bit ridiculas for an 18month old.

what do you think ?

I would go for age 2-3, I find some of their stuff runs small!

Hope your okay. Just going to pick DD1 up from school so will catch you tonight when I am scoffing my Ben & Jerrys! blush

I bought my dd a knitted dress and it's a bit big - I would say she is a very average size for her age. The trousers are all a bit long for her too. She is 26 months and 18-24 is just about okay now. However, some of the t-shirts are quite a snug fit so it doesn't always follow. Sorry that's probably not much help.

Boy's stuff seems true to size and sometimes on the generous side.

yea i'm ok thanks pg, catch up with you latersmile

well the smallest out fit my dd has, and still fits is 9-12 months top and sticky out skirt.
from next.
yet the boden 18-24 months is too short

its a nightmare buying kids clothes!

Boden girls' stuff is tiny IME, except for trouser lengths. I would prob go for 2-3 in most stuff, but maybe 3-4 in dresses on the basis that she can always grow into it if it's a bit big.

my dd 26 months wears 3-4, and my dss 5 & 6 wear the right size...although it's a little to long.

Well I guess it could depend on which colour you like, as the pink is only avail in 2-3.

I like the green best, but it's oos.
