When I first started researching cloth diapers I remember several moms telling me that when it came to clothing I should stick with stretch pants and forget about the jeans. Then when I finally got the chance to start using cloth diapers on Lincoln I realized exactly what they meant, and if you cloth diaper then I'm sure you know exactly what they were talking about too. Despite the advice I had several pairs of jeans for Linc. Every time I put them on him ... let me rephrase that. Every time I TRIED to put them on him I tugged. I pulled. I bounced Linc up and down and tried to squeeze his big fluffy butt into those tight unforgiving jeans. Yes, I did get them on, but not without a lot of work. Why couldn't there be an easier way???? I'm a jeans type of girl and I just know Linc was meant to be a jeans type of boy.
Fast forward a couple months. My sister in-law got Linc the cutest little outfit for Christmas. It was a light blue shirt with sneakers on it and a pair of GUESS jeans. "Oh no!" you think? "Not jeans!" you say? Well let me tell you these are no ordinary jeans. These are AMAZING jeans!!! These jeans were meant for a cloth diaper booty. Think pajama jeans (the infomercial jeans), but in mini form. They're jeans that look like blue jeans, but feel like stretchy pants. They're oh so soft, oh so stretchy, and oh so cute! These jeans fit Linc sooooo perfectly and I wish I had a million pairs.
I wish I had told you about them a month or two ago. I just went on their site and although they still have a few of the boys jeans outfit, the boys sweatshirt jeans outfit, and the girls sweatshirt jeans outfit, they don't have all the sizes anymore. I'm bummed because I really would have loved to get bigger sizes for Linc. I searched high and low online and can not find any pants that compare to them. I think it's time for someone to capitalize on this great idea. We need jeans for the cloth diapered booty! Anyone up to the task? I did find a tutorial on the blog Running With Scissors that showed How To Make Baby Jeggings (Jeans+Leggings) that looked somewhat similar, but not quite. If you're the crafty type then it's worth a shot to test them out. Let me know how it goes. Maybe Linc will give me a few hours free time to make him a pair, but till then I hope he never grows out of his GUESS jeans. I just had to tell you about them! If you have a little one that can fit into the sizes that they still have available I would run over there and scoop up as many as you can get. You won't regret it!
