Does anyone know where I can get extra small undies for my son?

My son just turned 3, we really want to get him out of diapers and in to big boy undies. But the issue is he's got a really little waste. He's in size 3 diapers still and I have to overlap the tabs on those... He's really tall, but really thin - like his daddy... So he's got a 12m waist even though he's 3... But the largest undies I can find anywhere is 2T which just fall off him...

I would really like to find some that fit him better. I know I could just sew them up to fit, but frankly I don't want the extra work - I have enough...

Thanks in advance.

  • if all else fails, you can just pinch a fold in the waist to make it smaller, then staple it. ;)

    ... seriously though, no idea. sorry. But good luck! And YEAH on potty training!

    This is all I could find on Google.
    A *teensy* bit on the expensive side though.
    Good luck, sorry I couldn't help more. :-(

  • Target had "training pants" that were terrycloth that had an 18 month size - I don't know if they still carry them though.

  • Don't know what to tell you as my son was the same way until I started him on Pediasure 2months ago! I put him in Huggies Pull ups size 2t-3t and adjusted them to fit him

  • Look in the baby aisle at Wal-Mart or Target or somewhere, where the basic cloth diapers and packaged onesies/sleepers are. Gerber makes training undies from 12 month up I think. They only come in 3-packs, and they're not the cute designs, but they should fit better. And since they're specifically for potty training, they're a little thicker and more absorbent than regular undies (kinda like cloth diapers with an elastic waist). :)
