These are nice pants and seem good quality, but there’s no elastic in the waist! There’s only a drawstring! I was not expecting that (maybe I missed it in the description?) Most pants of this style have both a drawstring as well as elastic, but not these. That makes it difficult to keep them on my two year old because he doesn’t like holding still while I tie them. Other than that they fit him well. They stay up fine when they’re tied, but what mom honestly wants to have to tie her toddler’s pants every time they need a diaper change? Not me!
