Living in Maine has taught us a lot about how to dress for winter. As adults, it's a little easier because you know when you're cold, wet, uncomfortable, etc....but when you're responsible for a baby, it's a little different. After two day cares, numerous mom suggestions and our own experience, we have some suggestions for your little one in the snow!! (The top two brands are definite "must haves" in my books...the jacket, snow pants and hat you can find anywhere - LLBean, Children's Place, consignment stores, etc...)
2. Snowstopper Mittens - If your child is going outside, you have to get these. They pull up high on the arm so they don't get pulled off, fall off, etc...Cam has never taken these off while outside which means that his hands have never gotten wet or cold! So worth the $15!
3. Waterproof Jacket - We got an LLBean jacket at the local consignment store, which was a major steal!!! I may always buy his winter jackets second-hand because people pay good money (Thing, LLBean, Patagonia, North Face), and their child only wears it for a few months. Cam's jacket looked brand new and was $12!
4. Bib Snowpants - There's no way I am allowing snow to get down Cam's pants!! The bibs keep them up and provide a little extra warmth in case his jacket goes up a little...
5. A lined hat with a chin closure - We scored an awesome hat at the GAP Outlet this past fall and Cam loves it. It's comfy, cute and WARM. The hats that just pull on haven't worked for us...
His hat that he never takes off...if you follow me on IG, I am sure you've seen it a hundred times!
Cam all dressed up and ready for the snow!!
Do you have any winter "must haves" to share??
