I feel like my kid is huge, but that can’t really be, right? She’s 5 1/2, and wears a size 7 (she has some things size 6 that still fit her, but most things don’t) My husband and I are not tall- we are 5’ and 5’ 6”. This kid stretches like Gumby!! Loooooong torso, looooong legs….

Yes, but I mean generally what size, like what range. I get most of her stuff on Amazon, and it’s all similar sizing.

Yes, very tall and also probably off the charts in weight

In target,hm he actually can fit into smaller like 8-10
Still big for a 5yr old

My 5 year old can literally wear size 2t, most stuff I'm buying her now are 4 some are size 3. My husband and I are of average height and weight. All my other girls are tall or average and she is just teeny tiny.

My 5 year old is almost 6 and wears 3-4. He’s definitely on the small side. My other kids were all ‘true to size’.
