I remember when I was a kid I got new underwear once a year... just before school started. Maybe that was just because my parents had seven kids and were trying to save money...
Anyway, my older girls are 3 1/2 and 2 1/2 and both very tiny. They're both in 2T underwear (regular panties, not the thicker training kind) and mostly potty trained (we have #1 accidents once every-other-day or so, but rarely #2). I bought their current sets of underwear about 6 months ago and they are falling apart. They still look clean and white, but the elastic is just falling off, the stitching is unraveling and there are random holes other places in them. I don't use bleach or even oxi-clean in my laundry, so I'm not sure what would be causing this. Do they just make toddler underwear super cheap? Am I going to have to replace these ever 6 months even though they still fit just fine and are still clean?
