How to get a belt onto a wiggly toddler

From Melissa:

I have a two year old boy who can almost never keep a pair of pants on his waist. Though it can sometimes make a diaper change a little more challenging, I have resorted to having him occasionally wear a belt. (The Children's Place has a nice selection, particularly the braided kind) However, getting a belt on a wiggling two year old is impossible. My hack: I put the belt on the pants before I put the pants on him. Makes it a little easier and his pants stay up.

Avoiding pants without elastics is also a good one.

Old Navy, Gap and Target have kids' pants with adjustable waists. A lifesaver for slim-waisted kids.
