Do you live somewhere north where the winters are freezing? Or, are you lucky enough to claim mild and brisk weather without an inch of snow? Maybe a fleece jacket layered with a raincoat is all your baby needs.
A winter coat only covers the top — do you need snow pants or warm leggings too? For my mama friends in Buffalo, NY — like the dreaded minivan — the snowsuit has its place and time in motherhood.
For the rest of us shivering souls, ask yourself how much weather will your baby be exposed to each day? Will she be playing in the snow, strolling outside, or running errands with you in your car?
Bundle up and get out there. You can do it. Just remember, spring is right around the corner (okay, it’s really not… but hot cider with brandy helps too).
To help you brave the cold, colder and coldest months, we put together an outerwear guide, with all our favorite winter essentials for baby and toddler — from coats and snow boots, to stroller footmuffs and more.
