Where can I get hold of some tiny undies? Jude has one single pair of 12-18 month pants, and they are falling down (she’s a pretty big 18 months, so I don’t know if it’s just that specific brand….). She is currently in pocket nappies with nothing in the pocket, but I’d really like to actually get her some proper pants. Preferably buying from the uk, so we’re not shipping them in specially, ideally fairly traded or organic, and probably boys pants or boys/girls boxers…..

Happy with second hand if anyone has anything kicking about….

I know - not asking much…. smile

We’re nappyless too, and looking for something similar. When we’re out we’re using some thick knickers, IMSEWIMSE, and at home just trousers or nothing.

Yes, we had the same problem.  We just bought the smallest size we could get—2 yrs.—and Ru wore them even though they were huge on her.  They are just fitting her now—she’s four!!!—but I would say she’s an exceptionally skinny child as well.

We got one year old pants at Asda. They often have tv characters on, but they do go to tiny sizes (at least they did two years ago when we bought a load of inoffensive pink flowery ones).

I got Kendra’s from M&S in the boys section.  But I find the website is better as they often have a limited selection of sizes, even in our massive store.

Hmm, will try M&S. bought some at H&M but they are 18-24 and definitely still too big :( We don’t use Asda (am thinking I may need to make an exception if M&S doesn’t pan out…), and NOWHERE seems to do them! I know under two is a bit unusual for potty learning, but I’ve met two other people just this week with under 2s out of nappies (all with the same issue!), so it can’t be desperately rare..?

And there were various on Ebay when I searched 12-18 months underwear.

Thank you! I have found a bundle of newborn fabric nappy covers which are about the right size in a charity shop, so we shall see how they go! smile

have had a clearout of B’s clothes today and found her first pants - mothercare 18-24 months, i remember we searched everywhere as she is smallish. they are well-worn but you would be welcome to them, plain with small flower design and a couple of polka dots, all pinks and whites (er, slightly grey due to my haphazard laundry approach - i’m really selling these i know cheese )

edit - should have said 12-18 months

Stargazy, yes please! Let me know how much you’d like for them!

Ahh, thank you, but I *think* I have a few 18-24s in a box from when Grace was little - it is the 12-18s I’m looking fir really.

Thanks anyway,

Angie
