Sizing your Child’s Belt

Kid’s belt sizes are categorized differently, depending on the brand and manufacturer. But to help you in your quest, here are some tips:
* For infants, 0-6 months old, a 20-inch belt is good enough. For 6-12 months old babies, the 21-inch belt is advised. Toddlers, 18-36 months old, may need a 22-inch belt.
* As your child grows, from 3 years old and up, you will have to refer to your child’s waist size. As you may have realized, children are different from one another. To find your child’s belt size, measure his/her waist. Ideally, you need to add two inches to that measurement to find your child’s belt size.
