Have you ever heard of Maxaloones? They seem to be all the rage among the cloth diapering community, and after recently purchasing a pair, I can see why. Maxaloones are pants that can fit ages 6 months until 3 years. A typical child will change pant sizes 7 times during that time span, purchase a pair of maxaloones and they will fit the whole time. Not every child is the same, and some may fit into the pants much longer, just as others may fit into them a shorter time. Knowing how expensive baby clothes can be, especially when you are constantly buying new sizes, I thought I would give them a try. I purchased mine from A friend who makes them for $20, which seems to be the average price. You can find a huge assortment of styles and prints on Etsy, or if you are able to sew unlike myself, you could probably make them yourself.
Now down to the nitty gritty, how does ONE pair of pants fit for up to THREE years? Simple, the legs and the waist band roll up or down depending on the size you need!
See how one leg is super long and the other is short? This is what makes the pants “grow”. You can also do the same thing with the waistband. These are made of a soft cotton so they also have stretch in them. If you cloth diaper you know the issues of sizing up or down depending on your diaper, but with these it doesn’t matter!
Plus, with a wide range of prints to choose from you can have all the pants you need! It is warming up outside so if you prefer shorts you can also find shortiloones which work almost the same way with a growing waistband!
