One of the best things about having babies and toddlers is being able to dress them exactly how you like. Long gone are the days of choosing what the older two can wear, so I indulge my clothing compliant toddler now and then. Styling him in what ever takes my fancy.
And when you have an active toddler it’s always best to go with outfits which look good and feel good, you really do need clothes which are going to last as well as wash well which is why I’m a fan of Cornish clothing company Frugi.
Created from a mission to find clothes which babies and toddlers could wear over cloth nappies, they’ve expanded into clothes for breastfeeding mums (of which I have owned a few myself) to children up to 8. Being organic they’re gentle on the skin and incredibly soft to the touch.
But the real proof in the pudding for owning a Frugi item in my experience is the quality and longevity. I’ve owned t-shirts and baby grows which have been passed down through brothers, cousins and back to my wee man and still look and feel great.
And we’ve recently added to our collection thanks to joining the #FrugiFamily. As a cloth nappy user, my default outfit is usually leggings when we’re home and these rather funky looking parsnip pants are a sort of hybrid leggings / joggers style trousers (and stops old people calling my boy a little girl!)
The new and improved Parsnip Pants! A must have for any babies’ wardrobe. With longer elasticated rib cuffs which can be folded and unfolded to grow as baby grows! Made from scrumptious organic cotton in a gorgeous all over print these parsnip pants are super soft and durable.
They’re cut like a jogging pant with long cuffs which can be folded over, as is the waist band, allowing for lots of room to grow and there’s no restriction or digging in which I’m sure helps with sitting in car seats and having afternoon naps.
We team ours with a coordinating t-shirt in bright and bold patterns which are synonymous with Frugi clothing. Even a simple top boasts the same thick, quality material with button fastening to make getting dressed stress free.
The real proof is in the pudding though and I’d say that judging by the extended play sessions, lack of wardrobe related frustrations and the epic climbing attempts that the Toddler loves his Frugi outfits too.
And don’t just want take my word for it see what Dolly Dowsie thinks of them too!
