    For sure hence my cringey emoticon.

    In times gone past, i reckon i have got some bras for cheaper than that.
    They are petite bateau a French brand. They're really lovely, well made and fit my DS2's skinny little legs very well. Everything else we've tried so far (including the bonds) gapes around his leg. Which if he's wear baggy shorts and sitting cross legged means the package is on display. That leaves me very uncomfortable. So hence spending a stupid amount of money on his jocks

    What about trunks? Maybe a size 2 can fit?

    That's what he wears in the expensive brand. The bonds 2-3 trunk gapes around his thighs, the brief is even worse. I've also tried holproof, rio, target and big w brand. He only weighs 14kg and has skinny thighs.

    Target have size 1-2 in trunks and undies and they are a good fit for my skinny mini DS.

    Bonds ones are huge on him.

    Try Calvin Klein - DS is tall and skinny and calvins fit him perfectly, they are really good quality, I've just bought DS more this year as he's gone up a size but his last lot lasted 2 years!

    Kmart neon are good for tall and slim boys. We changed ds to bonds briefs and he is tall and slim and they are a great fit - 4 pack for $12 from target

    Using a large amount of water and chemicals to clean one tiny pair of children's undies is also wasteful. (I am assuming that the canesten wash is just for the poopie undies and that they get their own cycle in the washing machine).

    I can't speak for anyone else but nope, not in my house. I've only had to deal with vomited on clothing/bedding which gets put in a soaking bucket (to remove any chunks) and then put through the wash as normal. I don't actually use canesten (was just using it as an example), just line dried in the sun.

    Yes my children have had school sores, hand, foot and mouth, worms, conjunctivitis and gastro. All things that are easily spread and all I have ever done is a normal longer wash (usually use the quick wash cycle), never had any issues!

    Hang on weren't you just giving me crap in the toilet training in a playground thread for not welcoming germs with open arms?
