We cloth diaper. This is known by most of the readers of this blog, but I have to put it out there for this entry. Now specifically we mainly use DSQ prefolds with Thirsties covers. Now this combination is fairly affordable and very absorbant, but it is a bit bulkier then some other cloth diaper options and by far bulkier then disposable diapers. The fact is that today’s baby and toddler clothes are cut for disposable diapers. This can be a big problem when trying to find clothes for the girls, especially since my girls are 90-95th percentile for height and weight for girls (yes I have big girls).
So all this leads me to one of my new favorite brands of clothing for the girls. The brand is Mini Boden. Now the outfits are just adorable, but one of my favorite parts is they are cut much wider then other pants. This is true for both the clothes I have gotten for Norah and for Tara.
Now as I said, both my girls are big. Tara is 2 years 2.5 months old and wears 3T or 4T clothes. Now the hard part of this is she isn’t potty trained yet (still working on that), but the size she is is starting to get cut narrower because the design clothes thinking 4 year olds are out of diapers. Then there are these great pants from Mini Boden that are red with white polka dots and cute heart shaped back pockets. These pants we bought in their size 3-4, and they go on with ease. And again they are just cute.
Then there is Norah. Now she came out a pretty big girl and that is still the case. She is 8 weeks old and mostly wears size 3-6 month (or 6 month depending on how it is labeled) clothes. Some of the body suit type things in this size are actually too short for her because of her long torso. Now we have those same pair of red polka dot pants for Norah in size 0-3 month, and they still fit. They are a bit tighter now, but not so much that she got mad as I was trying to put them on her. The other nice part is I have some other pants by Mini Boden in size 3-6 month which fit differently but are still cute. This brand of clothes just seems to be a great one for growing kids, especially ones in diapers.
Now of course the cute pictures to prove how cute the clothes are (or to just show off my cute kids).
And from today:
Oh and I was in no way compensated for this review. I just like the clothes.
