I'm hoping someone out there can help - I have a DD who is starting to potty train. Because of an endocrine disorder, she doesn't grow easily or gain weight, and has no body fat at all. At 20 months, she is still wearing 6-12 month clothes. But she has started to show an interest in potty training, and she needs some undies (we've CD'd, and she's still in the covers from when she was first born). Anyone have any ideas about where I can purchase the tiniest pairs of underwear ever? I can't figure out the google search term I need....<br><br>
Any help or suggestions would be so appreciated....thanks, mommas!

Try <a href="http://www.theecstore.com" target="_blank">www.theecstore.com</a> . They have undies for babies so I would think that they would have them small enough for you. My DD potty trained herself a month ago and I have her in 2T-3T panties. I do remember finding some smaller ones at JC Penny's too. I have also shrunk them as well. She is pretty skinny, so I've also had to size her pants and shorts down as well. Good luck!

I had luck with buying Wee Essentials training pants from JCPenney (only available in the store, not on-line) in size 2T, and then washing and drying them on hot to shrink them a little bit. You can also check out the tiny undies available at <a href="http://www.theecstore.com" target="_blank">www.theecstore.com</a>. And if you need more resources, you might try posting or searching in the Elimination Communication sub-forum of the Diapering forum - there are likely to be quite a few people there with babies in underwear or training pants.

This brand runs very, very small (and really expensive, unfortunately). But, they do have panties in both the baby girl and girl section. When my DS was wearing size 24 mos in most clothes I bought here, he was taking either a size 4 or 6 in this brand. He was given a size 6 mos bodysuit that I had to stuff him in at just 5 weeks just to get a picture to send to grandpa (who sends these over).<br><a href="http://www.petit-bateau.us/asp/us/?lang=US" target="_blank">http://www.petit-bateau.us/asp/us/?lang=US</a><br><br>
A couple of friends had this same problem of needing smaller undies than you can easily get in the stores. They ended up using the "bloomers" that often come with little girls dresses as underwear.

Wow, Petit Bateau wants $21.00 for a pair of panties...that my daughter will undoubtably poop in...yikes (I do love their clothes, though)! I placed an order for some nice organic cotton panties at The E.C. store. Thanks so much, ladies!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:
