trousers for cloth bottoms

Postby fairystar267 » Wed Sep 03, 2008 5:18 pm

hi all
those of you with boys where do you get your trousers from? i am having real trouble finding them to fit over his larger bum and when they do they are so tight he looks uncomfortable. I have had to resort to disposables twice this week for the outfits he was wearing.
i would prefer to use cloth as when on holiday we changed him almost daily with poo seeping out with the disposables hadnt realised how much they leak as always used them in the past and only been using washables over the past few months.( he also had a really bad rash on his tum from the disposables which has now gone)
thanks

I find the supermarket brands and oshkosh to be the best fits - we have sainsburys, asda and Tesco's which all fit. Next are a pain to try and fit on, until they get to toddler sizes / 18 month + and then they seem to be more generous.

However I also have to sing the praises of BHS as Ben's pinstripe pageboy trousers fit over massive nappies and wrap (it was a quick flip with a blueberry minki wrap) and it still fitted.

But I also love a baby in dungarees and anything also fits over those.

I have several pairs of cut 4 cloth trousers which i bought in the sale and also 2 pairs from minki (although the sizes are quite small) I have also found boots and tesco quite generous. Weenotion do dungarees but so far have resisted the tempation :twisted:

I don't have a boy but I found tesco trousers were very generous, and H&M are good too (they have adjustable waists)

We also had some cut4cloth trousers when I could afford them which were also great :)

Avoid osh-kosh and mothercare like the plague though!

I agree, tesco and h&m are more generously cut and are perfect for cloth bottoms. :D

I think it depends on the age, as I've heard bad things about next but they are really good in toddler sizes I think! The best I have found are Pumpkin Patch though, but again that's toddler sizes, lol, they will be huge when I PT him!

I've just bought 2 pairs of trousers for Anna from Cut 4 Cloth, they still have their 70% sale on, and if you use FNB15PP as discount code you get free p&p too! :wine:

Pumpkin patch are the worst trousers we have found, they are the only trousers she can't get into with a cloth bum. I love their designs, but the rise is too short to fit over nappies. They even made hipster jeans for babies ???????? why
Another option with trousers is to buy 3/4 length in the size up from what you are currently using and use them as full length trousers - a lovely big rise for a cloth bum.
