Jeans are perfect for casual events, but you’ll notice some obvious differences between buying jeans for yourself and buying jeans for your children. This is especially the case when buying jeans for a baby. JCPenney brings you a wide variety of jeans for your kids to create multiple fashion possibilities every day. Before you begin shopping, learn a bit about the size charts, measurements, styles for baby jeans and how you can find a pair that is stylish, durable, and comfortable. Keep scrolling to find the perfect pair for your tot.
Shopping Baby Jeans for Boys and Girls
Jeans are available in a variety of styles and vary in color, cut, pockets, waist type, and fabric. You’ll find many options available for boys’ jeans and girls’ jeans, and the most important thing is to find a stylish pair that fits comfortably. Boys’ and girls’ sizing charts and size numbers for babies are identical and are based on the child’s height and weight.
Though you’ll notice differences between boys’ and girls’ jeans size charts for older children, charts for infants usually follow the same standards.
Size 0-3M (20.5–24 inches tall, 8-12.5 pounds)
Size 3-6M (24–27 inches tall, 12.5-16.5 pounds)
Size 6-9M (27–29 inches tall, 16.5-20.5 pounds)
Size 12M (29–30.5 inches tall, 20.5-24.5 pounds)
Size 18M (30.5–33 inches tall, 24.5-27.5 pounds)
Size 2T (33–35 inches tall, 29-31 pounds)
Size 3T (35–38 inches tall, 31-34 pounds)
Size 4T (38–41 inches tall, 34-38 pounds)
Size 5T (41–44 inches tall, 38-42 pounds)
In size charts for infants and toddlers, the size number refers to the baby’s age. For example, size 0-3M means 0-3 months old, while 2T through 5T refers to sizes for toddlers aged 2 through 5. An age chart can help you pick a size but remember to refer to your baby’s height and weight as well.
If your baby’s height and weight both fall into a size’s requirements, you can rest easy that the pair will fit comfortably. However, if your baby’s height and weight don’t fall into the same size category, you’ll have to look at individual measurements, move up a size, or consider a special style, such as husky jeans, to guarantee they’ll fit comfortably. If your baby exceeds the maximum listed height or weight for the size that corresponds to their age range, move up a size. For toddler sizes, you can expect these approximate measurements (in inches) for the waist and hips, respectively:
2T: 20 and 21 inches
3T: 20.5 and 22 inches
4T: 21 and 23 inches
5T: 21.5 and 24 inches
Baby Jeans Styles
Similar to adults’ jeans, jeans for babies are available in a range of styles. A few of the options you might come across include:
Skinny jeans: These jeans are slim, taper at the ankle, and sit low across the waist.
Boot cut: These loose-fit jeans are straight but flare out at the bottom to fit over boots.
Straight fit: Also known as a regular fit, these wide, loose-fit jeans are straight all the way through the ankle.
In addition to styles, you’ll notice differences in the pockets (such as the number of pockets, their size, and whether they close), waist type, fabric type (such as denim or cotton denim), care requirement, colors, and wash. Baby jeans can come in a dark wash, medium wash, light wash, and faded wash, referring to the shade of blue. A variety of colors are also available.
