Toddler snowsuits — and newborn baby snowsuits, for the smallest family members — keep little ones cozy when the weather outside is frightful. After all, ’tis the season to stock up on toasty baby and toddler outdoor gear, especially if you live someplace where temps dip below freezing. Yes, the cold weather is here, and after being in quarantine inside our homes since early March, we’re already experiencing “cabin fever.” Winter in 2020 might look a little different this year than in year’s past, so it’s best to be prepared to enjoy it, and the outdoors, safely. That means bundling up your kiddos with the right gear like boots, hats, gloves, and of course, snowsuits.
Freezing temps can turn a winter wonderland into a parenting nightmare fast. That’s why we’ve rounded up the best toddler and baby snowsuits 2020 has to offer, perfect for keeping your mini warm and dry all season long.
What size snowsuit do I buy?
Your snowsuit needs may vary, depending on whether you’ve got an upright walker in tow or he/she is still baby carrier-bound. You’ll also need to consider how frigid it actually gets where you live (to avoid over- or underheating your babe) and how many seasons you’re looking to score out of your snowsuit. Don’t forget to look for convenient features like front zips, two-way zippers, foldable cuffs, and elastic/drawstring details to adjust the fit–because the best snowsuits make life easier for you and your kiddo.
From blizzard-ready picks to lighter, flurry-friendly options, get prepared for winter with the best toddler and baby snowsuits for every little snow angel ahead.
