Winter Outerwear for the Whole Family
Gearing up for a snowy adventure with your little one? Whether your child is walking or not, you’ll want a coat or snowsuit that will keep him warm and dry. Since there are tons of options out there, we did your homework for you and selected the best winter coats for babies, toddlers and, yes, even YOU! Because we know y’all will be spending a lot of time outdoors this year.
NOW is the time to bundle up — both you and your littles. Seriously, friends — stock up on winter gear before it all sells out!
Remember, don’t use heavy, puffy coats in the car (because, safety). For car-appropriate covers and coats, please go here.
Another thing many families like to have on hand for the winter is high-quality rain gear, which you can use for waterproof layers overtop of warm pants/coats, etc. (Also, depending on the climate where you live (west coast!), waterproof layers may fit the bill for the winter months in general…).
For toddlers, we love Reima — they make great rain bibs, waterproof jackets, and even layered rain mittens — and for slightly older children, Grunden’s (yes, the fishing-wear brand) is a great bet!
WHAT THEY'RE SAYING
Hi there! I subscribed to your newsletter when I was about halfway through my pregnancy. My son is now 3 weeks old and I just want to say THANK YOU for making your website and newsletter! First of all it is hilarious and always makes me laugh which is much needed at this point of no sleep! 🙂 Second, the information you provide is priceless and much appreciated as a first time mom. I always look forward to the next newsletter that pops up in my email. Thank you for doing what you do! It has really helped me along my mommy-hood journey!

Why don’t they make any waterproof kids outer layers?? I can’t seem to find that anywhere.
Hi Emily! I personally love LL Bean, North Face and Patagonia for warmth, quality and they have lines that are waterproof. Best of luck in your search!
Are there any recommended car seat safe winter jackets other than the Road Coat by One Kid?
Sorry! You can ignore that question. I just found the section 🙂
