Lots of people don’t love colder temperatures, but everyone can agree that babies all bundled up is one of the best parts about winter.

It’s all about striking a balance when you’re shopping for winter clothing for your baby. You don’t want your little one to be too cold, but you also don’t want to overheat them with too many layers.

Before shopping, think about the climate where you live and about your lifestyle. Do you spend your days walking long distances outside with your baby in tow or is more of your time spent in the car running errands? This can help you decide what outwear will work best for your little one.

A winter safety tip to keep in mind: winter coats + car seats don’t mix. That’s because coats and other thick layers are bulky, and no matter how tight you make your car seat straps, you’ll leave behind a few inches of slack—and that means your baby may slide out of their seat in the event of a crash.

Instead dress your child in two to four thin layers or use a blanket or car seat cover that fits over your seat’s straps. (You never want to put anything under your baby or the straps or use a product that compromises your seat’s safety in any way.)

Great for Layering

This fleece romper is the perfect layering piece for the winter months. Slip it on over baby’s outfit or a simple footie depending on how many layers are needed to keep your little one warm. The foldover hand and foot cuffs mean less items to keep track since you won’t have to worry about mittens or booties.

Outdoor Ready

Primary makes some of the best no-frills basics for babies and toddlers. This one-piece puffer is a winter staple. It’s made from a durable windproof, water-repellent fabric and features fold-over mittens and footies to keep your little one extra warm. It’s also not too bulky so it won’t restrict your baby’s movement.

Toasty Toes

Baby booties are a winter must-have for keeping tiny toes warm but are notorious for slipping off babies’ feet—but that’s not the case with Zutano booties. The unique design features a two-snap closure and ankle elastic and keeps them in place on even the wiggliest of feet. The outside of these booties is made from sherpa fleece and the inside is lined with a solid cotton interlock for added warmth.

Cozy and Cute

These mittens are just as cute as they are warm. Double-layered and fleece-lined, they’re crafted from sweater knit high-quality yarns that doesn’t itch. And don’t forget the matching hat!

Head to Toe Warmth

Designed to go right over your baby’s clothes, this cozy fleece suit is perfect for when the temperature dips and you need to head outside with your baby. The pram is made from Sherpa fleece on the outside and combed cotton on the inside and features built-in mittens. The zip-up design makes it easy on, easy off and there’s a magnetic closure up top that’s much faster than dealing with a button.

Just Right for Chilly Nights

It’s important to keep baby warm all night long during the winter months—and this versatile sleep sack is the perfect way to do it. It’s lined with Merino wool, a fabric that naturally regulates temperature to help keep little bodies warm when it’s cold outside. (It also works in reverse, keeping babies cool during the warmer months.) It’s an investment, but one size works from two months to two years so you’ll get plenty of use out of it.

Easy On and Off

This fleece jacket is a parent favorite. The unique flap-over-flap design has a Velcro closure so it’s easy to put on and take off, plus it provides an extra layer of warmth in the front. The grosgrain ribbon around the hood is cute and functional; it can be tightened to ensure a snug fit around baby’s head.

Super Soft

A simple top knot hat is a winter baby staple, and this adorable option is one of the best. It’s soft, stretchy and a super-stylish way to keep tiny heads warm all winter long.

A Winter Staple

A zippered one-piece footie is a baby wardrobe staple all year long, but especially in the cooler months. Footies work for both daytime and overnight to keep babies warm and comfortable. This affordable two-pack is made from 100% cotton and features a front zip for easy on and off.
