Cold weather is here, and unless you’re planning on hibernating inside with the kids until spring (a recipe for a breakdown if we’ve ever heard one), you’re going to need the proper gear in which to bundle them up. 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.
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 2020 with the best toddler and baby snowsuits for every little snow angel ahead.
