This has been covered everywhere. People suggest different brands that have adjustable elastic (doesn't help much since his but is so little, looks very bulky)
But what about sweat pants?! They fall off his but and are huge. As a three year old, he looks very silly in 2T pants that are too short, plus its getting cold.
My chubby baby has turned into a slim waist toddler and I too have this problem now that we are potty training and moving away from the bulky cloth diapers. We live on the coast and its chilly most mornings so something I do is put one of those adjustable waist paints over another pair like pj bottoms (the ones that Gap has work great for this). But to answer your question I did find some sweatpants at Target (Cherokee brand) that fit well on his waist. Have a pair of Old Navy fleece paints with a very small waist, and a KRU Supplies brand (from local Free Box, so no idea where from) that fit him well too.
I just love being a mama to my son born 9/22/2011 and expecting baby early December 2014
I'm wondering if any girls pants would do. This is so sad....
Children's Place has elastic waist pants in various types. They have a waist that is like a sweat pant band, no buttons or zippers and they sell them in jeans, cargo, or corduroy. Some of the styles fit narrower then others and can be tightened with a drawstring. I have a 4 year old boy who has physical disabilities, he can not do zippers or buttons and is extremely underweight because of his feeding difficulties. Finding pants has been a massive challenge! We can't do pants that tighten inside with buttons to make them narrower. The jeans at TCP seem to tighten/fit the best for him, they are long and skinny, he can wear a 4T in those. We also do a lot of track pants, some different style fit narrower as well. We have some Nike ones that are awesome but I can't find that style again and all other current ones, are too big. it is hit or miss with those. I hunt them often at TJ Maxx.
I love hanna andersson sweatpants. I am not sure about the waist size but you might get a pair and see. They size them in European sizes and a small 3 yr old would probably be size 90
they are more expensive than some other brands but they are great quality and last a long time--http://www.hannaandersson.com/style.asp?from=SC&pcid=10&styleid=36300&simg=36300_82F
