Sizes: 
0-3 Months= The circumference of the head is 13" to 14"= take 2 inches less than or subtract 13 to 14 inches or so, it will be about 11-12 inches, which is about 19 shells.  
3-6 Months=14"-17"=take 2 inches less than 14 to 17 inches or so, it will be about 12-14 inches, which is about 21 shells.  
6-12 Months=16"-19"=take 2 inches less than 16 to 19 inches or so, it will be about 14-16 inches, which is about 23 shells.  
Toddler Size=18"-20"=take 2 inches less than 18 to 20 inches or so, it will be about 16-18 inches, which is about 26 shells.  
 
You may need to check the child's head to see if its a good fit and when to stop the shells, but that is a good estimate with the circumference of the child's head.
