All of our garments are made from UPF 50+ protection spandex fabrics.  We recommend washing Tidewater Tots garments machine wash cold, gentle cycle. Tumble Dry Low. Do not use bleach or fabric softener. Do not iron or dry clean.


Industry standard for baby and toddler apparel is to use age as the size, however we do recommend measuring a child as it is possible to have an older child that needs a smaller size, or vice versa. For example, a baby that is 14 months may still be wearing a size 6-12 month given his or her other measurements. If your childs measurements fall between sizes, we recommend sizing up to ensure a better and longer lasting fit. Please refer to the chart below for measurements:
