weight measurements are great ... sure, but i do not shop for clothes based on weight or age...
what it really depends on body habitus.. the way you carry weight.. every BODY is different
as an example a 120lb woman that is 5' 0" is going to look much different than a 5" 9" 120 lb and wear a different size.
so... in babies... a 20lb 6 month old is going to have much different measurements than a 20lb 18 month old
- it is best to take measurements over a diaper, preferably a fitted or prefold that you plan on using with the cover. if you do not have a diaper handy add 1" to the rise measurement to accommodate the thickness of a diaper in that area
- also while measuring be sure to have the tape measure against body, but not tight that it presses into the skin/fat of the area.
- a pen and paper for noting measurements
- a tape measure. if you do not have a tape measure, you can use a piece of string yarn or ribbon. mark or cut it to the length and then measure on a ruler or yard stick
i am going to show and explain waist, rise, and thigh measurement.
waist: around the belly at about the level of the belly button
rise: from the belly button, down through crotch and up to the back at about the same level as the belly button
hope this helps!
