Project Pomona is a very unique children’s clothing store. They make adorable jeans for babies. Not just any babies; they make jeans for cloth diapered babies. How many of you have tried to fit your elbow in your ear? It doesn’t work very well, does it? That’s how I feel sometimes when I try to put K-Dub into a pair of jeans now that he’s a heavy wetting toddler with a bodacious fluffy booty!
I decided to contact Project Pomona about being a sponsor for the Merry Fluffy Christmas Giveaway Blog Hop event since I have read several online reviews of these jeans and had to see if they were the answer to my predicament. I was thrilled when the wonderful owner, Meghan graciously accepted. She asked me a few questions about colors and styles that I like so that she could make me a custom pair of pants for K-Dub. What I ended up getting in the mail was one of the exact pairs that I would have ordered for myself! She sent me a pair of their City Jeans with a blue cuff. I love them!
Not only are Project Pomona jeans cute but they’re also economical as they are designed to fit a fairly wide range with one size. These jeans are super adjustable in the waist and in the length. The waist has four snaps and a stretchy elastic in the back to give you the perfect fit and the cuffs are designed so that you can roll them up to expose the cute fabric underneath or unroll them for extra length if needed.
K is 24 months, 29 lbs and 34″ tall so I chose the size 3 pants which fit babies 18 mos – 2T or 24-32 lbs. Please note that the sizing isn’t typical so check their size chart to determine the correct size for you. I initially made this mistake when stating the size I would need and thankfully I noticed quickly that I’d made a mistake and corrected it.
The first time I put these on K he was wearing an AppleCheeks diaper with their bamboo insert along with their bamboo doubler and the pants fit great! We also happened to be raking the yard and he was running around, jumping in the leaves and “helping”. He had a full range of motion, which isn’t something that always happens with regular jeans if they’re a little snug in the seat.
Here you can see the extra length you can add by unrolling the cuff. I could get another 2″ or so.
Also for comparison purposes I put these jeans on with the trimmest diaper that I have in my stash to see how well these pants would fit on a disposable diaper wearing baby. Why should our cloth babies monopolize all the cuteness, right? I probably should have snapped it all the way (I had them on the second snap like with his fluffier dipes) and it was a little saggy in the seat but totally doable.
All in all, I am in love with these jeans! Since K doesn’t seem to be even remotely interested in potty training just yet (clap, clap) I am definitely going to have to order another pair. Look at all of the adorable fabric choices and color options, including colored snaps. They even have shorts, hoodies and onesies!
