Pudge Pants by Little Hob Review and Giveaway

September 29, 2012

Cloth Diaper Extras, Reviews


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?!

  1. MicheleC Says:

    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!


  2. Megan Says:

    The waistband and cuffs


  3. Kristin Mueller Says:

    You had me at hammer pants! Seriously, I love that they fit over cloth diapers and grow with my little boy.


  4. Erin K Says:

    The stretchy waist and leg cuffs. My son is chunky, so when I find pants big enough around they are always dragging on the ground.


  5. Jennie Says:

    Pants that will actually FIT with cloth diapers?!? Yes, please!!!


  6. Lindsey K Says:

    I love that they’re made for cloth diapers.


  7. meleakua Says:

    i love everything about these pants!! they’re just what i’ve been looking for! i love the cuffs- brilliant! not only do long pants make my little man fall down, but the puppy loves to chew on them when he’s trying to run around! :D right now the little one is sleeping in a shirt & diaper, & i was also wondering what i could do- no pants in the world are going to fit over our nighttime cloth diapers, or so i thought! these look perfect! thanks so much for the review & giveaway! :)


  8. Anna Wick Says:

    I love the colors! And stretchy pants are my pants of choice for going over fluffy bums.


  9. Brandi Says:

    That waistband is ingenious!


  10. leigh anderson Says:

    I can’t believe this! I have been looking for pants to fit my girl…and they make pants small for baby girls anyways, this is the perfect solution!!


  28. Nicole Peerson Says:

    I, like the wide, soft cotton waistband!


  29. Jessica O Says:

    I love the soft stretchy waistband! I hate when my daughter’s pants squeeze her tummy, looks so uncomfortable!


  30. Jessica Lingle Says:

    I love that i can fit my daughter’s fluffy bum on them along with the cuffed legs


  31. kate Says:

    I love that they have extended wear because of the cuff. I get so frustrated when my daughter outgrows a pair of pants so quickly.


  32. Alissa Says:

    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! :)


  33. Krista Says:

    It all sounds pretty great! I think the comfy waistband sounds the best though. My little guy has reflux, tummy troubles, and a nice fat belly. :P


  34. irina Says:



  35. Marianne Says:

    I love that they are made to fit over cloth diapers!


  41. Anne Perry Says:

    the gussetts and softness


  42. Samantha Says:

    I think these are so cute!! They really do look like hammer pants hahaha


  43. Cristy Says:

    I love that they fit over cloth diapers! We experience the same tummy pinching with jeans for our guys. Bummer cause I love jeans on little boys.


  44. Jill Says:

    waist to go over diaper


  45. Renae Meyer Says:

    These pudgy pants sound so comfy and I’m sure my 2 yr would love them. We are both into comfy pants since I’m 7 months prego! Thanks for another great review


  46. rocketbride Says:

    i love the comfort of the fitted waist!


  47. Carrie W. Says:

    I love the longer length in the legs and the cuff so they can be worn longer and not drag on the ground get dirty or tripe the poor little ones!


  48. Aimee Says:

    These look awesome!


  49. Jennifer Lyden Says:

    I like how to cuffs on the bottom extend how long your child can wear them!


  50. Lela Says:

    The roomy bottom for cloth diapers!


  51. pang Says:

    I like the wide waistband. I’d like to try these on my chubby boy.


  52. Jess Nye Says:

    Definitely the way the bottom fits! But the soft waistband and leg cuffs are so nice too…


  53. Alanna Naylor Says:

    I love the stretchy waistband and room for the fluff!


  54. Maggiemoo Says:

    I really love the cuffs on the legs. My grandson is rather short-legged and wears a cloth diaper. These could really work for him!


  55. Julie Says:

    It’s impossible to find pants that fit my chunky monkey! These look great!


  56. Tory Says:

    I just ordered a pair! The design on these is awesome – the cuffs look like they will keep my son from tripping on them, and they look super comfy. I love that they have plenty of neutral colors.


  57. Bethany McKinley Says:

    I love that the pants grow with the baby, so they won’t be outgrown as quickly as most baby clothes.


  58. Kim Says:

    I love the roominess! And cute patterns too.


  59. Jennifer Perritte Says:

    I like the roomier area in the bottom, to fit over the fluff! :)


  60. Nancy Ludka Says:

    I love how versitile they are. Super comfy for play but look great to go out!


  61. Rain Buchanan Says:

    They’re adorable and yes, I know what Hammer pants are too, lol!


  62. Laurie Says:

    I would love pants that fit well over cloth. My second baby is chunky, unlike his older brother, and doesn’t need his diaper to keep his pants up! I worry about his tummy getting squeezed.


  63. M Holly Says:

    My chunky little man would love some pants that fit well (and not tight) over his fluff!


  64. Tamara Says:

    My little girl can’t wear anything but stretchy pants because all other waistbands make her spit up and uncomfortable.


  65. Felicia R Says:

    I like that the pants grow with my baby!


  66. Heather G. Says:

    These would be perfect pajama pants! I have to stuff my pockets so much that the pajama bottoms have a hard time fitting.


  67. doreen stodolski Says:

    Would love to know where I can get several pairs,,,,Would be making any W/O teh tight ankles? What about making boot cut styles? Again W/o the cuff ankles…Thank YOu~


  68. Megan H. Says:

    I love the stretchy waistband that won’t squeeze my little man’s belly!


  69. Jessica Says:

    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. :)


  70. chelsea preston Says:

    Love the double gussets for the extra fluffy bum


  71. Ashley Bureau Says:

    I love the fleece for these chilly days, and the stretchy waistband, soft on pudgy tummies! :)


  72. Ruth Says:

    Looking for great products to try come January when my little one is due to arrive. I love that these come in cotton fleece! They look so comfy!


  73. Kris Says:

    They look so cute, my LO would love a pair!


  74. Susan Says:

    Ha! Love the hammer pants reference :) I had some- in lovely cheetah print that I usually wore with hot pink- glad there aren’t too many pics :)

    Would love to try these on my little man. He’s my 2nd in clOth, but first from newborn :)


  75. Faith Halverson Says:

    The stretchy waistband! Jeans always cut into my daughters stomach.


  76. Kirstin M. Says:

    I think that is such a great idea! It’s nice to see pants that are designed for a cloth diapered bum. And P.S., you’re not old, Autumn. I know what Hammer pants are ;)


  77. Faith Says:

    Ooohhhh…the waistband!!!! Are more girlie prints in the making???


  78. Lori Knight Says:

    I like that they fit over cloth diapers.


  79. Tara A. Says:

    I hate pants that seem uncomfortable or constricting on my son. I’d love to try these!


  80. Melissa Says:

    These are so cute and such a great idea!


  81. Sam Says:

    I totally agree about jeans!


  82. Hollie S Says:

    I love the cuff!


  83. IzzyMummy Says:

    I love the whole concept and reasoning behind them we cloth diaper a girl an it is really hard finding pants that stretch over a fluffy bottom so these are wonderful


  84. Erin Says:

    I love the stretchy waistband and room for cloth diaper. It seems that any jeans I can fit over his diaper have to be miles too long!


  85. Jenna Says:

    These look so comfortable, I would love to have a few pairs for my little one! I with you Autumn, if they made these bigger they would be great for pregnant bellies! They would also be great for recovering from a cesarean :)


  86. Lindsey newton Says:

    I love the stretchiness — easy to get on a wiggly toddler!


  87. D Ohlandt Says:

    The loose legs with cuffs sound like exactly what we need for our crawler who keeps getting tangled up in his too-long pants!


  88. Erin H Says:

    I love the wide, stretchy waistband & cool fabrics!


  89. Elizabeth Says:

    I would love them for my little girl. They seem so comfy.


  90. Mandy Says:

    Would love the tiki print for my little guy


  91. Rachael Says:

    I totally know what Hammer pants are. I wore them. Yes. I did. And I admit it.

    I love the soft waist band, reminds me of my beloved yoga pants.


  92. Denise Says:

    I love a soft stretchy fabric-perfect for lazy and/or playful days!


  93. Carrie Says:

    Awesome idea. I like that they grow with the child. Clothes are expensive!


  94. Angela E Says:

    I Like how cozy they seem. The prints are cute too.


  95. Claire Smith Says:

    They just look so nice and COMFY! And the prints are so cute and unusual. I love them!


  96. Jenny B. Says:

    I like the tie-dye! :)


  97. Holly Says:

    I love the idea of comfortable pants! Babies have always looked uncomfortable in the huge diapers no matter what kind they are. It’s nice someone is making a way for them to be more comfortable.


  98. Danielle Diehl Says:

    These sound great and I am thinking about buying a pair


  99. Heather Mills Says:

    I like the stretchy waistband and extra long legs.
