Yes. My ds is very long so luckily going the next size up has helped somewhat but there are some trousers he has that look like me wearing hipsters not a god look I have found tesco trousers seem to fit well (and we use tots bots and they are quite bulky) and dungarees have helped.
I havent found it a problem yet, the only thing i buy any bigger is vests and babgros for dd3, dd3&dd4 mostly wear flexitots,bumgenius v2,sandys(dd4) during the day which are quite slim fitting. DD3's super boosted bumhuggers @ night are a completely different matter
I only ever had one cut 4 cloth daytime outfit (a couple of vests as well). The rest of the time just shopping in the right places worked. H&M was always good for us. It is easier with boy trousers than girl.
Thank you I am thinking of using Sandys to start with which claim to be quite slim fitting. Have noticed Tots Bots on sale cheaper in TK Max stores but some of the reviews on them seem to think they are quite bulky which puts me off a bit.
Depends on the nappies you use. DS has always mostly used prefolds which mean no fabric round his hips so most trousers fit well. He's usually in tops that are one size bigger than his trousers actually, as he's stocky and long in the body. I don't find dungarees that great due to the long body issue, they are hard to do up and unpopper themselves.
I got the tots bots from Tk Maxx. I odn't find them too bulky. Obviously they hve far more bulk in them than a disposable but it's never been a problem for us- and ds has been crawling since 5 months so there's no issue with mobility which did cross my crazy mummy mind I would go with tots bots, especially at such a good price.
another vote for itti bitti d'lish, here, they're hardly bigger than disposables, and i haven't really noticed having to go up a size earlier than I should have. dungarees are the best though, DS wears them more than trousers. if you are using cloth from newborn though, i'd get itti bitti d'lishs in medium as they fitted my DS from 3 months - the small wouldn't be worth having for such a short time.
I'm not having any probs with Ds's clothes. But then he tends to grow out of stuff lengthwise while they're still loose on him, so probably down to his shape. I love the big cloth bum plus it gives me something to grab onto ever time he chucks himself headfirst off my lap!
