winter coat

I was wondering what kind of winter coat you recommend for my 15 month old.  I am looking for a winter/warm jacket for everyday use (not just for being outside).  I have heard you aren't suppose to have your child wear heavy coats while in a carseat?  I'm at a loss on what kind to get! If you have any you like-please share!

Re: winter coat

  • I've always done the 3-in-1 coats for my kids. They can wear the fleece alone or with the jacket. In the car, they wear the fleece and we just put the jacket part on when we get out of the car.

    This is what I am doing too.

  • We have Osh Kosh 5-in-1 coats with the zip-out fleece and detachable hood. One of them has been through both boys and has stood up really well and still looks great. I'm thinking that DS2 should be able to wear it again this year, and we definitely gpt our money's worth out of it.

    Oh, and we do the same as the ladies up there as far as wearing their coats in the car.

  • Yes, winter coats and car seats don't mix, glad you know that! That makes me happy! You can get a fleece. Or you can get a winter coat, and have them take it off every time you get in the car. That's what heat and blankets are for in my car! So they can stay home and not get sick, but also stay safe! We keep snuggles in the car and like I said, warm up the car before getting in as well as keep blankets in there. My three year old has a winter coat and a fleece. My 20 month old has a fleece from old navy that PP mentioned, and Kyden we just throw blankets on.

  • This is the {boy version} of the coat DD wore from 1-4 probably. I LOVE this coat. They come in all sorts of colors and no matter what you can get at least two seasons out of one size.

    Same here. They are fantastic. DD has one from Lands End that she wore last year and will wear again this year. Well worth the $.
