It's hard to believe that gloves for such tiny hands even come in different sizes, but they do! And just like with shoes and clothes, it's important to choose the right size so that your child is comfortable and can move their hands freely. Here's a quick guide to help you choose the right size baby gloves.

Age/Size Chart

The first thing you'll need to do is take a look at the age/size chart for the gloves you're interested in. Most glove manufacturers will have a size chart on their website or on the packaging of their products. Here's an example of what you might see:

0-3 months: Newborn

3-6 months: Infant

6-12 months: Toddler

12-18 months: Child

2T-4T: Small

4T-6X: Medium

7-10 years: Large

As you can see, there are several different sizes available for each age group. To choose the right size, simply match up your child's age with the corresponding size on the chart. If you're between two sizes, we recommend going with the larger size so that your child has room to grow and won't outgrow their gloves too quickly.

Fit of the Baby Gloves

Once you've determined what size gloves to buy, you'll want to make sure they fit properly. The best way to do this is by having your child try them on before purchasing them. Here are a few things to look for when checking the fit:

The gloves should be snug but not too tight. There should be no gap between the glove and your child's wrist.

The fingers of the glove should not extend past your child's fingertips. If they do, the gloves are too big and your child will not be able to use them properly.

Look for gloves that allow your child full range of motion in their fingers and wrists. The material should be stretchy enough that they can make a fist or grab onto things without feeling restricted.


Gloves are an essential part of every baby's wardrobe during colder months, but did you know that they come in different sizes? Just like with clothes and shoes, it's important to choose the right size of gloves so that your child is comfortable and can move their hands freely.
