I mentioned on a previous post that I've been perusing chinese shopping websites to try and see what's available out there ( and tell myself
to breathe that i'll find what we need). My stumbling upon things that I am looking for is pure luck, since most of the sites are written in chinese characters. I have found everything from electronics, to bottles, diapers, linens and vitamins.
My family has been helping me stock up on clothes for Sal. He's already got a closet full over there, but, I'm pretty sure I have enough new clothes here to send another suitcase over. My sister and I loooove to shop! And here I thought baby boy clothes weren't going to be much fun...I die over anything striped, nautical or has pictures of trucks. Really, I do.
..and thank goodness we've been stocking up on baby clothes, because well...
Apparently, this is totally normal.
Yes, split pants.
Sold that way.
One of my evenings of perusing lead me to baby clothes on the amazon.cn site. This is where I learned of the chinese split pants..called Kai Dang Ku.
It'll be a sight to see, but at least I have been forwarned and won't be surprised . Okay, even being forwarned, I will probably still have my mouth agape..bare butts. I mean, c'mon. I'm a sheltered American. Cut me some slack.
As much as I want to try and embrace parts of the Chinese culture, I can honestly say that this will probably (99%) not be one of them.
I've seen what Sal can do to a diaper..I certainley don't want to see what he could do while riding on my shoulders diaperless.
Can you imagine?
