Children (child) clothing size is also often referred to as "Little Boys/Little Girls Clothing size" and usually cover 4 to 6 yeras old children (boys and girls).
Child Size vs. Toddler Size
Toddler clothing size (2 to 5 yrs) and Children (little boys/little girls) clothing size often overlap. So, what is the difference between toddler and children clothing size? This depends on brand/manufacturer. But usual differences include:
-Some child sizes are narrower and longer
-Some toddler sizes are roomier (beacause of diapers)
-Some children and toddler sizes are the same, but the garments have different cuts/styles
Keep this in mind when shopping for a 4 or 5 years old child, that actually often can use both sizing systems.
