C. belly belts Review + Giveaway

Have you ever came across a product that you really NEEDED?  My husband would argue that there aren't many things that I "need" - but this time, even he agreed with me!  Our 2 year old daughter is pretty tall and fairly thin, and ever since she grew too tall for her 18 month jeans we've had troubles.  Her 2t jeans will not stay up, especially when she is playing!  The last couple of months have been frustrating - she doesn't like to stop running to have her pants pulled up (I don't really blame her).  Anyways, I came across a wonderful product that helps bridge the size gap - and they agreed to let me review their product!

About C.belly:
"The unique design of C.belly Belts is the result of my personal frustration with droopy drawers. My three daughters have been wearing these belts for over six years!  I experienced so much success with the product I began to get requests to make the belts for friends and family. This led to the launching of C.belly Belts for Kids in 2008.  The belts are manufactured in the USA, made of sturdy cotton or nylon, covered with cute grosgrain ribbon, and fasten easily with Velcro.  The belt secures around the front two loops of a pair of pants, leaving the front button uncovered and a zipper easily accessible. The design makes diaper changes easy without the hassle of undoing a belt buckle.  They are perfect for potty training because little ones can get a pair of pants down quickly and easily, and the belts serve as a great tool in promoting independence in youngsters because they are so easy to use."

C.belly comes in many designs and sizes, which makes them perfect for boys AND girls, babies to preschoolers and beyond!  The belts are 1" wide and will fit most bottoms that have regular belt loops (including many toddler jeans that we tried).  They are $12.99 individually and also available in value packs of 2 for $19.99. Quite the value when you consider that little ones will wear the belts for a longer period of time than they can wear most pants.
My Review:

I love this belt!  It works extremely well...in fact, I've already told my hubby that we will probably have to buy new belts every time my daughter moves up in size.  The belts come in a variety of colors to match any wardrobe, which is great.  You can also get a value pack - 2 belts for $19.99.  Since these belts use velcro, they will fit your child for awhile - making these a good investment piece.  C.belly belts have allowed Sydney to wear many pairs of jeans that she wouldn't have been able to wear for while otherwise.  Unfortunately, not all toddler jeans/pants have belt loops, so this belt doesn't work with everything - but out of our 2t jeans, it works with all but 2 pairs which is great. Also, in the How to Use instructions, C.belly says to put the belt on with the velcro facing out, which covers a lot of the belts design.  I put Sydney's belt on the other way.  It makes it a little more difficult to velcro (you end up folding the velcro in toward the jeans instead of out and away), but it lets you show off the pretty colors more.  And since you only have to velcro it once (instead of with every diaper change), I don't mind the extra trouble!

*Sorry for not having a picture of Sydney's belt, but she is getting to the "run from the camera" stage - at least when I try to take a picture.*
