Pudge Pants by Little Hob Review and Giveaway

Cloth Diaper Extras, Reviews

facebooktwittergoogle_plusmail

Little Hob is a family run business that has one super comfy flagship product available for your child.  Seriously comfy.

Pudge Pants were created out of necessity like many amazing products that you find yourself grabbing for on a daily basis.

David and Lauren were blessed with a precious son, Ursul.  Ursul had a fluffy cloth diapered bum and a not so pleasant acid reflux problem.

Two problems: pants weren’t fitting over his bottom and those that did squeezed his poor tummy.

Leave it to an Apparel Design school grad to whip out the sewing machine and design the perfect pants for his son.

Out of necessity was born Pudge Pants: The pants that don’t pinch!

Honestly, I love them and want a pair for myself.  This pregnant belly ain’t getting any smaller and my pants aren’t stretching like they need to.

There are a couple of different styles of Pudge Pants that you can choose from: gussets or no gussets.

You may be asking yourself why gussets matter?  The gussets allow for extra room for an extra fluffy cloth diaper.

For times when your child is wearing a trim diaper the no gussets style allows for a more tailored fit.

The stretchiness of the material allows either style to be easily pulled up over a cloth diaper and gives your child plenty of movement ease.

We’ve now solved the problem of finding pants to fit over a cloth diaper.

Next, is the gentleness on the tummy.  Even at 20 months Camden gets uncomfortable when I put blue jeans on him.  They just don’t give you a feeling of freedom.

Pudge Pants are designed with a wide, super soft cotton waistband.  Like buttah.

No pinching, no red marks, no grunting when bending down to play with toys. (see I need a pair just to cure my grunts).

The leg cuffs are also made from the same cotton/lycra material.

One of the pairs I was sent for a review is a wild Jamaican woven print (my description. They call it Deco-Tiki.) that I lovingly call “Hammer Pants”.  If you don’t know what Hammer Pants are then don’t tell me because I will start to feel reeeeally old.

Camden looks so cute in them!

Another aspect of Pudge Pants that I love is the loose leg length.  You may have been wondering why there are leg cuffs but the design is great for us moms that like to make a dollar stretch.

By creating a longer length in the legs and adding a cuff they are essentially extending the time your child can wear them by 6m-1y.  As your child grows the pants “grow with them”.  The leg cuffs prevent a fabric from dragging on the ground while your baby is in the smaller size range end.

This makes me feel more comfortable about buying pants for my little guys.  They grow so fast it seems within months like their pants are high-waters.

Right now is the time to grab your child a pair of cotton fleece Pudge Pants.  The fleece is great for Fall and Winter weather!

Of course if you live someplace like I do that has decided not to have Fall weather you’d be good to buy up the adorable tie dyed cotton damask from Africa.

Would you like to win a pair?!

    My son is very long, but not extremely chunky, so whenever we find pants that fit in length, they’re often loose around the waist. This combination of the stretchy material at both waist and cuffs would be perfect!

    I like the cuffs on the bottom of the legs. When I have to size up her other pants to fit over her fluffy bottom, my LO trips over the legs because they are too long. Cuffs would keep the longer length out from under her feet! :)

    The softness, and ease of stretch in the pants overall is what I believe to be the best feature! My DS also has GERD/reflux and when anything is too tight, or even just putting him in a carrier after an hour or two after he’s eaten he still spits up. What an innovative idea! Kudos to the great minds who came up with pudge pants. :)
