Rather than hibernating inside with your little one through the long, cold winter, keep your baby warm with one of these reliable snowsuits. They come in fabrics like warm polar fleece and water-resistant nylon to keep your bundle of joy cozy whether you’re going to the park or building a snowman in the yard. In today’s update, we added in the Polo Ralph Lauren Quilted Bunting, a stylish and practical choice that’s available in either pink or navy blue and is safe to put into the washing machine. It sports the manufacturer’s signature pony logo embroidered on the chest and engraved into each of the snaps. It’s got two cute pockets on the front waist. It’s made of polyester with cotton trim and includes a hood that covers the ears nicely.
We also added in the Steve Madden Pram, which boasts a double zipper design that makes it easy to change a diaper without removing the entire snowsuit. It can be folded easily over the hands and feet to keep them warm. It too is safe for the washing machine and is available in bright red, vibrant pink, and shiny rose gold.
The North Face Thermoball remains in the top spot, as its lightweight build and protective insulation are tough to beat. It’ll hold up nicely to be passed down among siblings, and features the brand’s sewn-in logo and comes in your choice of neutral gray or white, as well as vibrant pink or blue. It’s backed by a generous lifetime warranty, so you can purchase it with confidence. The Columbia Snuggly Bunny is another stylish, tried-and-true option that’s available in a wide assortment of colors, with fun, patterned linings. It contains responsibly sourced goose down and a weather-resistant taffeta shell.
On a safety-related note, the American Academy of Pediatrics advises that bulky clothing like winter coats or snowsuits should not be worn underneath the harness of an infant car seat. In the event of a crash, fluffy padding can flatten out and thus create extra space that can, in turn, cause a child to slip through the seat's straps. Rather, dress your child in thinner layers that can include long underwear as well as a hat, mittens, and warm socks or booties. You can also lay a coat or warm blanket over your child, as long as it isn't entirely wrapped around her body or otherwise interferes with the seat's straps in any way.
