Five Top Tips for measuring your child
1 Use a cloth tape (not a really old one they can stretch out) check it's a UK based tape against a ruler as some of the very cheap ones do not measure correctly.
2 If you are trying to pin down a small baby or toddler, stop right now and wait to measure them while they are asleep!!
3 If measuring an older child who is a bit fidgety a game of standing still like a scarecrow can work or let them run around and come back to it later when they are calmer
4 Have a note book and pen ready to take note of the measurements or use our free printable which you will get when you sign up for the newsletter *here*.
5 If all else fails bribe with chocolate or favourite treat ;)
