Don’t worry, if your baby isn’t born yet and you want to buy a hat, simply follow the column in the table that shows the sizes of baby clothes by age, as babies are quite accurate in sizes up to 6 months.

Child should stand on both feet without kneeling. Wrap around foot and measure with a tape measure from a furthest point of heel to a tip of longest toe. Remember to add 1 to 1.5 cm to a size on a paper. It depends on seasonality of shoes. For size of children’s winter shoes should add extra 1.5 cm, but adding extra 1 cm will suffice for summer shoes.
