Each child has different growth progress. At the same age level children are different in weight and appearance. At the same weight but different appearance, the baby needs different size of diaper. Consider the weight rather than the age. Choose the size that fits to the waist and thigh. We cannot immediately decide the baby should wear size M because his/her weight is 7kg.
For example If the baby’s weight is “7 kg.”, which is the age range for size S (4kg-8kg) and size M (6kg-11kg), it should be considered case by case to decide if the baby fits to S or M. Sometimes, the baby possibly fits size L.
