So Ian's life started off a little on the larger side. He ate like a champ, was on the top of the growth charts, out grew his clothing faster than we could buy it, and thanks even more to his cloth diaper booty, he never had a problem with his pants falling off.
Then Ian began walking at 9 months old, and thinned down quite a lot. By 18 months his height and weight were just average on the growth charts. By 2 1/2 years old, he potty trained and that is when his "pants problems" really began! Maybe he inherited my husband's lack of behind (because it's certainly not from me), or maybe toddler size jeans just didn't fit him quite right, but man, I wish I had a nickle for every time I said, "Ian, pull your pants up!" Have you ever had your child's pants literally fall to their ankles and have them sprint down the isle of Target yelling, "Hey, look at me! My pants fell off!" No? I can't be the only one!
Then I ran across this nifty little device, the Dapper Snapper! It's like a belt, but even better. We tried belts with Ian, but trying to undo a belt before sitting on the potty is not ideal for a 2, 3 or 4 year old. In fact, it's downright risky to waste those precious seconds! The Dapper Snapper goes on the back of their pants or shorts. It's elastic so it offers stretch and makes it easy for them to pull their pants up and down while it's attached. And of course, it prevents the dreaded "Plumbers Crack".
In just a couple weeks Ian is starting 4k! There are already so many things that kids worry about when they begin school, don't let mooning be one of them!
