What Size Hangers Do I Need for My Baby’s Clothes?


If you’re a new parent, there are probably upwards of a million things buzzing through your head at any given moment. Chances are, you never pictured yourself reading a blog about clothing hangers for kids, but here we are. We get it, being organized at home helps you feel organized elsewhere and we’re here to help.

Baby sized hangers start at 10”. This is the perfect size to hold those pint-sized onesies, tank tops, pajamas, dresses and shirts—especially the nice ones from grandma. To hang your baby’s pants and skirts, use hangers with clips. Sturdy metal clips ensure you won’t find those slippery leggings or tights laying on the closet floor an hour later. They also work great to organize hats and mittens, costumes or other accessories.

Quality wooden kids’ clothes hangers will hold up over years of use and abuse and survive several rounds of siblings. Our 10” sized hangers will serve you well between the ages of 0-3.

What Size Hanger Is Best for Kids’ Clothing?

By age four your child has probably graduated to toddler (aka big kid) clothes. And between the ages of 4-12, kids become more independent, able to take on responsibility. Providing your child with the right tools to keep their closets organized will help set the standard for years to come.

Our 12” hangers are designed for kids’ clothes up until their teen years when they’re ready for normal adult 15”-17” hangers. Quality kids’ hangers will hold your baseball jerseys, princess dresses and favorite outfits for years. Someday when your kids outgrow those beloved outfits, you may want to store them—hanger and all—in another closet to preserve the memories.
