With the weather cooling down I started bundling Little Man up with different layers. We have been out in mid 30's to high 40's and his cheeks are always rosy by the time we finish but he is nice and warm everywhere else! If it's "warmer" out we will do fleece pj's with the snow suit but on our coldest mornings he gets three layers.
Our three layers are:
1. Long sleeve bodysuit
2. Fleece jumpsuit
|Using the box as a car/train/sled. |
He loves it and when it's outlived it's useful life into the recycle can and no toys taking up extra room!
3. Snow suit
Of course he has nice warm socks on his feet. I prefer his smartwool or wool consignment socks to keep those toes nice and toasty. He hasn't worn shoes yet and I'm putting this off for as long as possible! He frequently pulls the socks off in the car and chews on them. Tasty!
My favorite layer is his "snow suit" (he has an actual snow suit for when the temperature really drops) from REI. We purchased his snow suit in a size 18 months so that way it is nice an roomy and he can grow into it and wear it for several months! He also has a matching hat with an under the chin strap. His head doesn't quite fit the hood yet so the hat is perfect!
Here are my favorite features:
1. Attached hood
2. Fold over mittens
3. Fold over feet
So far he has been nice and toasty warm on all of our walks!
