The following information will orient parents on some of the
major points to consider when shopping for toddler snowsuits. Obviously, you want to keep your baby as warm
as possible and it is very easy to do so by dressing him or her in one of the many high quality snowsuits
made today by most of the major manufacturers of children’s winter clothes.
Listed below are some of the major points to keep in mind while
shopping for a snowsuit;
Thickness and insulation: While you certainly want your toddler to stay warm, be careful
not to select a suit that is designed for colder temperatures than are typical in your area. If you live in a
region that has extremely cold winters you should consider heavily insulated clothing that is rated for below
freezing temperatures. But, putting the same suit on a toddler in an area in which the winter temperatures
stay above freezing and perhaps never dip below 45 degrees, you run the risk of overheating, which is very
dangerous to any child.
Weight: These suits can, if heavily insulated, get somewhat bulky and heavy – which can
affect your toddler’s mobility. Restricted mobility can bring about other problems such as making walking and
playing difficult, or perhaps making sitting in a car seat uncomfortable due to the bulk of the suit making
the "fit" of the seat too snug. Remember, your toddler won’t be able to complain to you in most cases, so you
have to be vigilant and ensure that he or she is wearing an appropriate, comfortable snowsuit.
systems: A key factor to consider when selecting a suit.
While most fasteners work quite well, some are better than others should you have to change diapers while
traveling, etc. Think about what activities your child will be doing when wearing the snowsuit and consider
which type of fastening system will make it easier for you to change diapers, as well as the dressing and
undressing process. Typically, fasteners are made of velcro, zippers, buttons,
Hoods: Some snowsuits come with hoods and you must consider if this is a good option for your toddler.
Hoods are quite effective in protecting children from wind, rain and cold, but some designs can be somewhat
restrictive and cause chafing on the face and neck. If you desire a suit with a hood, make sure it has enough
room for a knit hat to be worn underneath it. Some of the better made suits have detachable hoods, which are a
very nice feature that enables you to use it when the weather calls for it and take it off when it is not
necessary to help keep your baby warm.
Size: Toddlers grow quickly and it is
probable that your baby will be larger at the end of the winter than he or she is in the fall, which is when
most parents purchase snowsuits. Factor in some growth and if appropriate, buy a size larger than your child
currently wears. Unfortunately, snowsuits rarely are used by the same child two winters in a row due to their
rapid growth. Consider this when buying and be realistic about how much your child will wear the suit. While
you certainly don’t want to buy a poorly made suit, there’s also no sense in spending excessively for a suit
which might be worn a dozen or some times before your child outgrows
Car Seats: Do not overlook this factor when choosing a snowsuit! Chances are your baby will be traveling in a car seat and you want to ensure a
safe, comfortable fit. The sheer bulk of some snowsuits make it virtually impossible for you to secure your
toddler in the seat. We recommend that you put the snowsuit on your toddler and place him in the seat to check
the fit. Make sure that all buckles, belts, straps, etc., can be secured as intended and that your child isn’t
being pinched or cramped.
