In Australia it depends on the brand. Today I dressed my daughter (who is 4 1/2 months old) in a 'Bonds' size 0 (12months) suit with a 'Dymples' size 000 (3-6 months) jacket. I don't pay attention to the sizes any more. I usually hold up the item of clothing to see whether my daughter will fit in it or not. She is mostly in size 00 (6-9 months) and size 0.

6/9 months, she is very long. I also find that the Carter's outfit are shorter than other brands and shrink a lot faster (poor quality cotton?)

Hi, here in Finland they sell baby clothes not by "months" size but by length, so my baby who is 5.5 montjs old is wearing 70 cms long clothes since he was 4 months old.

She is 17 pounds, but 26 inches in length, so she wears 6-9 and has fit into 12 month onesies. It does depend on the maker, every one has a different opinion on sizes. I had onesies that said 6-9 but when I compared it to a 3-6 of a different brand they were identical.

my daughter is just growing out of 6-9 months but she is very large for her 5 months of age. yesterday she was wearing a dress for a 12-18 month old but she weighed 9250g 2 weeks ago and is getting heavier. She is long measuring at about 74cm but she is chunky too. I don't think it matters what size your baby is just as long as they are happy and healthy, Some babies are small and some are large you have to look at family gentetics. It's whatever works for you.xx

At almost 6 months, my girl has grown long too. She's mostly wearing 6-9 month clothes. Sometimes she wears things for 12 months though (a tad long, and baggy, but still works, lol.)

my daughter is six months old and still for the most part wearing 0/3 month clothes still. She canwear some small 3/6 month outfits. She is just now starting to outgrow 0/3 but still fits most. My two older childrem grew out of 0/3 right on schedule though. All depends on the child.

my girls are growing out of their 3-6 month clothing, so we are getting ready for 6 month clothes. But yes the brand makes a huge difference!

Any size from 3-6 in Gap as it tends to run big to 9 months although they can seems a little baggy. Every brand of clothing is so different, but if I could only choose one size to buy for him...it would be 9 month clothes because I like clothes to be on the bigger side. There is nothing worse than tight baby clothes, or tight kids clothes period. Kids and babies are so active, they don't want or need to be restricted!

My son is 6 months on June 2, he wears mostly 6 mos brand and 6-9 month. If they are footed sleepers they're tad on the long side, but the alternative is keeping him in the too snug 3-6 mos footed sleepers. My friend's son was born 4 day's before mine, and he's in 18 mos clothing... he's also taller and heavier than my son

my son fits in 6-9 months right now, he can fit in some of the Faded Glory 3-6months still but not for long. plus he's getting closer to fitting in Carter's 12 months.

My son is in 3/6 months, but he has some 6 month onsie jumpers that fit him because he has a long torso.

My daughter wears 3-6mo and some Carter's and Target brand are 9-12mo. She is really long, so some of the 9-12mo are baggy around the middle.

Sounds like the makers of baby clothes need to make clothes a little longer in length. A lot of moms are having troubles with their babies being too long for their clothes.
