Jeans for skinny toddler?
October 8, 2012 at 12:15 AM

 Does anyone know where I could find some jeans for my dd?  She is very skinny, but needs 24 month size pants for length.  Her 18 month size pants are just now getting to where they dont fall off, but all of the brands i have tried for 24 month just fall off, even if i roll them at the waistband.

help!

    I order mine at Childrensplace online. I used to get old navy but it seems the length on Childrens Place is just a bit longer even in the same sizes and I haven't been happy with the stitching on ON jeans lately for toddlers

    We buy jeans with an adjustable weight or we have him wear a belt.

     I'm not a big fan of ON anyway, their clothes seem to strech and lose their shape or fall apart really quick.

    I had to get adjustable waists and pull the elastic as tight as it went. It's not ideal because they bunch up and it looks a little funny. Also, you can have a seamstress make adjustments. My mom sews, so she would tighten some things.

    Now that my girls are older and can get slim pants, I do. It's so much better. They make clothes so big! My 8 year old can still wear some jean shorts with elastic waist that are size 3t. My son is 4 and wears 18-24 months from Old Navy and still has the waist pulled a little tight.

     I could adjust them myself if i wanted to...but then i would have to dig out the sewing machine and uggg...bleck.  i dont like sewing :(

    but  Ikwym...my ds is the same way.  he needs a 6 because he is so tall, but can still fit into a 3t waist sometimes.  luckily, though, he seems to be filling out.

    Agreed! 2 winters ago I got some great thermal shirts from ON and the last 2 years they were rags after the first washing. I pretty much gave up. That and with my place cash I got 60 free dollars for boy's winter wardrobe :)

    No jeans, just get jeggings. All the fun of a "jean" look, but they stay put on your kids ass ;)
