Apologies to start with as this is probably in completely the wrong place! DD is 9 months and has skinnied out a bit, I used to put her in Next leggings but these are suddenly massive around her waist. Has anyone any recommendations about where does smaller fitting ones?

I always found tesco clothes quite narrow fitting. My daughter can be strange fitting so I use a lot of dungarees from penny's as they don't catch anywhere.

Oops sorry that's primark in the UK.

Boden have drawstring waist so can be pulled in to fit

Mine is skinny. I find Boots and Primark fit well. Mothercare, Next and Jojo come up pretty wide.

Next come up massive! I find H&M come up quite small. I have some second hand F&F as well which fit well on my skinny toddler, but I'm not sure if that's because they've been shrunk before I owned them.

I used to add elastic by unpicking a few stitches on the waistband seam and threading elastic through the channel.

Long and lean 3 month old here - H&M are fantastic for his body shape.

Anything European rather than British tends to come up skinny. H&M, Zara, Vertbaudet

BabyGap used to come up very narrow

My dd1 was a skinny thing and baby gap was basically the only stuff that would fit her. Next stuff is huge.

With dd2 im having the opposite problem. All the baby gap hand me downs won't go up past her lovely chubby knees.
