Default Belly bands?

Where on earth do you find belly bands small enough for your chi???

I need some for Mojo who is like maybe 4 lbs pushing it.

All i see are big. What size would you recommend? I think XS but some i read say 12 inches and that isnt small!!!

Do you have a sewing machine? They are incredibly easy to make, I use a stretchy knit and flannel or arctic fleece. Velcro closure, super simple to do, and easier to get the right fit.

If they don't work, let me know. I'd be into trying to make a couple to test my sewing skills!

Measure hips to bellybutton and around the waist. Add about an inch to the legnth and 2x the width for folding over. Finish one end of the lining before you put it together and leave that open to put in whatever you want to use for absorbing, if you need a pad in there. If not, double thickness flannel is usually enough as long as you keep on top of changing it when he wets.

Make um! i had to make one with legs for a JTR many years ago he could get out of a band, i lined mine with tena extras and flannel making it machine washable and it was also reusable if he was only dripping, a tena extra maybe massive on a chi by the way,

Also seen the incontinence pads being used with a section of lycra leggin legs as a short term thing. Worked well and you can make at least 6 per leggings with a weird pair of shorts left over. That was for a yorkie who widdled like a maniac in the car stopped the car needing a wash out after a trip lol
