    Do you find the sizing true to size for boys? My DS is 102cm and according the the sizing for jeans that's a UK 3-4 years. He's only 2 and not a big boy, just tall.

    I find it to be a bit larger than the sizing here...my DS has just moved out of their size 1.5-2yrs and he's 3yrs old (wears size 2 or 3 from Target). He's skinny but I would say average height (about 101cm).

    I bought the size 2-3 jeans for this season and I have to do a cuff at the bottom for now but they the 1.5-2yrs are a bit short now.

    After reading this thread I wandered over to the Next website for a look.... and ended up buying a bunch of stuff for DS!

    I can't believe I didn't know about it sooner! Their stuff looks really nice, especially the boys' jackets/coats.

    I would buy all my kids clothes from Next if I could afford it. I love it. Both my newborns have had their onesies as a going home outfit. Super cute stuff.

    Unfortunately though, most of the time I buy my kids clothes from K mart, Big W or Best and Less as it's cheapest. Particularly when having to get lots in one go like a whole Winter wardrobe in a new bigger size.

    About 80% of DSs wardrobe is hand me downs from his cousin, but I am a bit fussy about what he wears and I buy a few key pieces from one of my favourite brands which usually end up lasting for ages. For example, he's got five t shirts than he has worn constantly for a year (I put a long sleeve top underneath in winter) and only just started to outgrow so even though they cost more than some tees from Big W, they have lasted well and will see the next bub through too. I do the same with pants from there too, usually buy them a size bigger and their waist is nice and snug so I can roll up the cuffs and they last for a whole year - 1.5 years.

    I pad it out with staples from bonds and target.

    I don't care if people think I spend too much on his clothes though, I like him to look nice and find most of the stuff in regular shops for boys to be very uninspiring!

    I love Cotton on kids, country road and seed. For play clothes I shop at Target.

    My DS is exactly the same size wise. He's 3.5yrs. 2-3 in pants and 3-4 in tops. I love Next, just got a huge delivery this week. PJ's are so good. The tops are long enough not to show his back which annoys me about k-mart and target etc. Their basic packs of t-shirts are great value and you can get something a bit different from local stores for better stuff. People always comment on DS's clothes when he wears Next. The only problem is the season difference so there isn't a huge range of winter stuff because the UK is going into summer.
