Choosing Clothes for Children
  • Chapter 11

  • Clothing needs change as children grow and
    develop. One sign of the growing independence of
    toddlers is their desire to dress themselves.
    Clothing which is easy to get on and off will
    help with self-dressing. Growth occurs at
    different times during the toddler years.
    Clothing design which provides for growth will
    extend the length of time garments can be worn.
