For my nephew's 3rd birthday, I wanted to make him an apron, since he is starting to get into baking with his mom.  I used Sew Liberated's free pattern.  The 3-6 size seemed small when I printed the pieces, but I may not have scaled it correctly, so I made the size 6-8. 

The torch (of modeling my crafting) has been passed down to DS, who, at 8 months, sports his cousin's apron:

DH was a little jealous, but we couldn't get the neckstrap over his head, so he agreed it was time to let the young' un take over.


Mama to baby twins.  Frantic crafter while they nap!

Aww how cute. Yes, I think you might be right: if the apron pictured is 6-8 and it only barely swamps your baby son I suspect the 3-6yr old one would have been too tiny.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I made the same apron for my just-two-year-old grandson in the smaller size and it is fine for him. It is a fun thing to make.  He is rather tall and slim and will be able to use it for a couple of years.  When you print out the pieces be sure to set your printer for no shrinking to fit or any other reduction choices or else it will be too small. This is the apron used in Montessori classrooms because the kids can put it on and take it off by themselves.
