Does anyone have any suggestions for baby clothing brands that fit tall, skinny babies. My son's pants are always falling down. :) By the time they fit his waist, they look too short for him.

  • My son is tall and skinny and we seem to be doing ok with Garanimals from Wal Mart. He's been in 9-12 month for a year, and it actually FITS now. He's 20, almost 21 months old.

  • 2 words: adjustable waistband. Old Navy has them, and so do some of the Target (circa) brand. Gap might too...

  • Haha we have the same problem here. We do have a couple pairs of pants that have the adjustable waistbands and they're great, but the rest of the pants usually just end up off while he's playing lol. I try to buy pants that have a nice stretch band in the waist to them.

  • I got these about 6 mo ago for my DS who is too dang skinny for his own good. Sometimes, even with the adjustable waist, we need them. LOL. They work great BTW! -

  • gymboree also has adjustable waistband pants. that is what my sister buys for my niece (she is tall and skinny).

  • Actually, they typically don't do the adjustable waistband until 2T. Old Navy tends to run a bit skinny I think though. I cloth diaper my son, so it bulks him out quite a bit, so that helps. =)

  • Target has the adjustable waistbands starting at 12 months.
