Day 13: Ukrainian Kids’ Sizing!

by | Mar 15, 2022

A funny thing has come to our attention as we have met the recipients of our boxes: Ukrainian children are BIG by Italian standards! (Or maybe our Italian kids are just a little small!)

Usually, you size babies Newborn-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months, 1 year, then 18-24 months. Only at this point do sizes start to go by years – 2T, 3T, etc…

We found that we were not getting many newborns here in Piemonte (I think most new mothers would find it hard to travel so far away from Ukraine to get here)! So even the smallest babies were at least one size bigger than our Italian sizes. !!

Other Northern European mothers (Dutch, Scandinavian) in our group also noted that their children tend to size at least one size up in the Italian and French brands. So, go figure! Who’d have known? We are learning every day…
