My 1.5 year old is tall, with long legs and arms. He is still small around the waist & chest though. He’s not ‘skinny’ as in underweight, but just when it comes to clothes it’s so hard to find things that fit well. Has anyone had the same problem & found any particular brands or items of clothing that fit this shape? I always buy 1-2 sizes up to get the length, using belts on pants etc but I would love to find some other options. What are some clothing recommendations for long babies?

  • Target are really good for quality as well as most of their clothes have the adjustabe waist in them my 2.5 year old has the same problem.
