No, it’s seeping down to the very beginnings of our society, trying to infiltrate our babies by starting them off as Mom Jean loyalists at the youngest of age.
Too many styles of Baby and toddler jeans have horrendous pocketage (if they have pockets at all), bubble around the butt, and (gasp) have The Dreaded Grandma Elastic Waistband ALL the way around.
It takes a lot of shopping to find a right pair of baby jeans that appropriately goes over diapers without creating that Dreaded Bubbly Butt, but that isn’t too far on the other end of the spectrum – Baby-Skank:
I personally have had my own successes…
Finally, there are efforts being made at helping solve the root problem of baby/toddler jeans: the bubbly diaper-underneath. Huggies has come out with…a Jeans Diaper.
My friend Christen graciously sent me the link to these special edition diapers, something which I will just HAVE to go ahead and stock up on for Newbie, for fear that the “limited time offer” will be up before December.
Now granted, this product is not perfect yet, but it’s a giant step for babykind in the right direction. If only those pockets were a little bigger and a little lower… and I’m not so sure about that denim color – it looks a bit Wrangler-ish to me. But maybe it’s better in person – I WILL be finding out.
I’m really a Pampers loyalist, so my hope is that they steal the idea and improve on it. My recommendation would be that they take a cue from the creator of the US Olympic Team snowboarding pants, who took his favorite pair of designer jeans and had the exact look photographically reproduced onto snowboarding pants:
I can see it now. Citizens of Humanity Diapers. It’d sell – and you know it.
