Ease of Use: 8/10
Jeans for cloth diapered bums are near impossible to find. Traditional jeggings are a little girly for our tastes. So what’s a cloth diapered baby to wear? KayCircus blue jean look maxaloones. These cloth diaper pants are made to fit wonderfully over cloth diapers, all while looking like blue jeans. To make these pants absolutely perfect- they fit nice and loose, perfect for both boys and girls.
KayCircus offers these pants in a variety of sizes: newborn, 0-6m, 3-18m, and 1-4y. We ordered the 1-4 year size for Pumpkin (15 months and 21 pounds) to maximize our use. With this size you could easily get 4 (or more) years of use out of these pants which is amazing when so many kids clothes are outgrown in a month or two. I can’t wait to see how these pants fit Pumpkin in a few years.
These maxaloones by KayCircus are of outstanding quality. The material for the legs and bands is all the same soft, stretchy fabric which means no fabric will wear faster than the rest. The fabric is also high quality and I have no doubt it will last for years (has already held up to once a week washes). The stitching is all even and professional and you can see the craftsmanship that went into creating these pants.
These seem to run a little larger than other maxaloones we’ve tried. These are still a little large on Pumpkin at 21 pounds and 15 months, but they still fit without falling down. Because they fit a little larger we prefer them for summer months (they’re nice and loose, so not too hot) and I’m hoping they will last us until he’s 5 or so. If you have a smaller (thinner or shorter) child, I would recommend going with the 3-18 month size until they are closer to 18 months old. If you have a larger child, these will comfortably fit them from 1-4 years.
I want to mention that I love the looser fit of these. They look less like leggings and more like pants- perfect for boys or girls who don’t want leggings. Sometimes I hate how tight fitting maxaloones are but these pants by KayCircus fit comfortably without making my son look goofy.
Ease of Use:
Maxaloones do require a little more effort to put on your kiddo vs. standard sweatpants. With these, you will need to roll or fold the belly and leg bands to match the height of your kiddo. We finally (a year later) figured out the best way for us to fit maxaloones and that is to roll the belly band or drape it loosely however it falls and fold the leg bands over once. After a few uses of these maxaloones, you will figure out the best way to fit them for your child and you will be throwing these on your kiddo with ease.
At $23 a pair, plus shipping, you only need to use these pants for a year before they are cheaper than buying multiple pairs at a large retail chain. While the upfront cost can seem a little steep for some; you are supporting a small shop/WAHM and are paying for pants that will fit your child comfortably and last for years. Whenever Pumpkin needs a new pair of pants, I prefer to spend a little extra and just buy one pair, knowing they will last for years.
KayCircus has created some comfy, well fitting pants that look similar to jeans. I love the simplicity of the colors and styling of these pants. So often maxaloones look babyish or are too colorful/bright so if you’re looking for some classy pants that will still fit well- these are perfect! KayCircus also offers a huge variety of other solid colors as well as a few select prints. You are certain to find a pair of pants that match your kiddos style. The pair we ordered was light heathered denim and it’s the perfect color for both boys or girls.
These KayCircus maxaloones are my favorite pair we have tried so far. The fabric is so soft, the fit is so comfortable, and the colors are so simple. Bottom Line: Yes, I would buy this again. I’m going to wait until the cooler months and then order a couple more pairs (heathered olive, yes please!).

If you are on the fence about buying maxaloones, KayCircus would be a great brand to start with, they are so soft and wonderful (plus they’ll last forever!).
