Mmmkay... I'm at my wit's end with buying clothes that don't fit Lily. Just as I cut the tags off... I pull in on to find that it won't go over her belly.
She's a 4 month old that needs a 18 month waist and a 9 month length... which doesn't exist. I recently found a cute jean skirt for her to wear with all of her new colorful tights. I bought the 9 month size because anything bigger was practically a floor length skirt on her. My mom and I first tried snipping the treads sewn into the elastic to try to loosen it... unsuccessful. Then we tried going in and snipping through the elastic... unsuccessful. Finally, I just had to cut right down the sides to try to make enough room for Lily's growing belly... and she still has a muffin top. The poor thing is doomed to wear onesies and tights with no pants this winter... because I can't stand to think she might be uncomfortable. Maybe I could find some sort of belt to go with her tights and she could just go with the festive holiday elf look.
I think she's precious and would never wish for her to be any different. Thus, my solution is that there needs to be baby plus size clothing stores... selling pants and skirts with GENEROUS elastic or even expander tabs. Perhaps I could get the people at Lane Bryant on board.
