    Charlie will be 14 months when we go on holiday, hes in 9-12 now but most of them are a little big for him so i have a few questions.....

    1] What size to ge him, 12-18? or will he still be in 9-12 then??
    2] Do i get him little t-shirts so his sholders are coverd up, or do i get him little vests so hes nice and cool and just put extra sun cream on his sholders?
    3] Will he be ok swimming in his little shorts or will he need his back and his tummy covering??
    4] If i go with little vests ware on earth do i get them from!?

    All of your help will be greatley appriciated!

    I would prob try keep him covered as much as poss. You can get them little swimming suit things for babys so there covered up, not great looking, but better than an accidently burnt baby!

    We've got these for Seth when (if!) we go on our hols

    http://www.mothercare.com/gp/produc...?ie=UTF8&m=A2LBKNDJ2KZUGQ&n=71404031&mcb=core

    He's also pretty small for his age but we're getting him some slightly bigger clothes, rather they'd be a bit baggy than too tight in the heat.

    Also we've bought hima couple of linen shirts for the evenings to stop him getting bitten hopefully :)

    I know thats not much help, we're having the same dilemma.

    We had the same problem holiday in June to Portugal Kaysie will be 13 months, but been buying bits for a while, and didnt know 9-12 or 12-18, I found it depended on each individual item as some look massive and others tiny.

    If you decide on a few vests, matalans sell them x

    we first took Jack to gran canaria when he was 13 months old and I would defo put him in one of those wet suits they are factor 40 and skin is much more likely to get burnt in the water. you can get the thin ones from places like next he wont overheat in it. and i would take sleevless tops and t-shirts and I would always make sure he wears one of those swim hat things with the bit at the back that protects his neck x
