Flora is potty trained early, by US standards, and she is very little for her age.  I'm happy that she is potty trained and I've come to terms with the fact that she's tiny; my problem is with her pants.  Unless she's wearing leggings her pants are always really baggy in the crotch.  I know it's shallow but I don't like the way it looks.  What size do they finally start cutting pants to fit the child and not the diaper?


  1. I'm not sure, but could you maybe buy petite "big girl" clothes and hem them? I know eventually they start to get bigger in length, and not too too much in the waist. They sell "husky" pants, so maybe they sell a smaller waist? The crotch may still be a little long, but at least they will be made for a normal child, and not a diaper.

  2. I've never seen clothes for the skinny child. I think husky is a bigger problem than skinny in this country. I'll keep an eye out though because that's a good idea. First, she needs to outgrow all the clothes she has and I don't see that happening anytime too soon.

  3. Yea Flora!! We had the same issues with Piper. We just went down to size 12months for pants/shorts. Her undies are also baggy but they stay up.
