Does your little one have trouble keeping trousers up? All three of my kids do. Most of the pants and skirts I purchase nowadays have the adjustable elastic waistband, but even that contraption has it's limits at times. I came across these belts at a trade show here in NYC and thought they were absolutely genius.
Myself Belts creates belts that even your littlest one can manage. The belt attaches to your child's pants with a hidden snap. Then, for the rest of the day, the belt can be fastened and unfastened by your child (with ease!) because the closure is made of velcro.
This is perfect for any child who is potty training, but can also be great for older children. My 5-year-old loves her belt, because traditional belts always take a little more dexterity than she has. I love it, because she no longer runs to me after each bathroom break looking for some belt help. My favorite belt styles are the Airplane, Polka Dot, and Leather.
Myself Belts even sells belts for teens or adults who may deal with disabilities that would limit their ability to fasten a belt. These belts have the appearance of a regular belt, but also have a velcro closure.
If you order a Myself Belt, make sure to follow the weight recommendation as you select sizing. My 5-year-old daughter wears a size small, which is labeled 3 yrs.
You can purchase a Myself Belt on their official website, or you can find a retailer near you. Some Nordstrom and Stride Rite locations carry the Myself Belt. I was surprised by the number of stores here in NYC that carry them, so chances are you can find a shop nearby.
