I have never had an issue either. We always have jeans with elasticated waists as ds is slim so maybe that makes the difference :-? He always has a wool soaker on underneath his jeans with no problems. On the rare occasion he hasn't got a wool soaker on then it's fleece.

Erm, you could try a wool interlock wrap or soaker, super stuffed pocket, a pocket and wrap, or pocket and soaker (we do this if she's in the pushchair or sling to stop compression) or a wool AI2 or pocket, though I'm not sure if there are many available, if any, I find bumgenius and ecobubs wool pockets the most reliable pockets, and old style WN pockets are great too!!

We've never had a problem but i don't buy jeans.cords we tend to buy a size up but usually he's in jogging bottoms.we found some generous trousers and dungarees in pumpkin patch.we use bg,greenkids or fitteds with airflows mainly.
Have just got some fleece to try.we only really use wool at night.

If we're not using wool then I usually use Wonderoos with the microfibre inserts. I don't think they're that popular but they fit my little man perfectly at the moment :giggle: If I still want to use a fitted then I just pop a Wee Notions pul wrap over it, they work fine and don't bulk him out too much.

We always used pockets for under trousers, so BB or WNOS normally. Under dungarees or jogger bottoms. Leggings are handy for girls then once it gets warmer it's all skirts and things so I guess it is a bit easier then. I like bamboo interlock and bamboo velour trousers, minkee too, though maybe they are quite girly. :giggle: Anything with a bit of stretch generally works though. Synthetic fleece is good too, but I'm a bit funny about using synthetics, except for jumpers and Snugglebots. Otherwise I like natural fleeces for warmer trousers.

Sandy generally wears his itti bittis under jeans and things. They are so trim they are under even the most fitted of jeans.

I have to use ittis, BBSS and BG for some of R's clothes after her latest growthspurt. I do find that you have to change them frequently or they wick though and they give R sore legs. :-?

I wondered about this too actually but so far have only used pockets or BG flips under jeans etc. Can't imagine a fleece or wool soaker fitter under DS's trousers, although they might under his looser and thinner summer ones. I like DS's ''normal'' clothes but am falling in love with wool especially the wooly shorts I've bought him recently!! I look him to a toddler group in his woolly longies and got soo many comments about how nice they were (snugglepants from Jabula)
