Weenotions - how long did your lo last in mediums?

Postby rachymoo » Mon Apr 30, 2012 2:10 pm

It’s been waaaay too long since I placed a Weenotions custom order :giggle: so I am been designing a few ideas for some new ones today! Just not sure what size to go for though? I want a couple of WNNL. Last ones I bought new were pockets and I bought medium high rise (do they even still do the high rise option?!), Jake was about 2 or 3 months old and they still fit him! He has slimmed down a lot and no longer has chunky Michelin man style legs :giggle: so in fact a lot of his medium nappies that I bought when he was very young still fit him on the same snaps that they did then!

So I’m wondering whether to go for medium again or whether I should go for large so that they’ll last longer – because he’s going to grow eventually, right?! I do have one large WNNL that was Lilly’s which he does wear, he has a bit of leg gape but I *think* the leg elastic might be a bit loose (I’m not 100% as it was bought preloved, it doesn’t seem very stretchy though if that makes sense). It never leaks though.

He is 13 months, I haven’t had him weighed for months but at a guess I’d say he’s about 20lb. Havent measured him for ages either! Any advice gratefully received :)

Not sure how much help this is (!) but I found when I tried a large pocket (ss) on my lo at 20lbs it didn't fit very well and there wasn't a lot of growing room either because they don't stretch ifyswim. I'd deffo get the higher rise at least if you can get it as you're lo is already at the 20lb weight range (and probably the higher rise height as well) but...every baby is different. My lo is in their medium fitteds with no problem though :shock: x

Ooh really? Thank you ladies I think I'll go for large then! The mediums do still fit on the legs etc but I was starting to worry a bit about the rise, he is quite long/tall! Thanks :)

I'd say larges. My LO was 20lbs when I bought my first WN and it fits well :)

Bella slimmed back into mediums before she was taken out of cloth, but she was older than your Jake at that point. I'd probably go with larges, but maybe think about the standard rise if the rise on the medium is ok.
