Top 10 Snowsuits and Fleece Coats for Baby


Snowsuits and coats for babies and toddlers need to be warm but not too thick, so baby can move easily and be safe in a car seat. Fleece makes a great material for baby coats and snowsuits, since it's thin but very warm. These snowsuits and coats are plenty warm but comfortable for little bodies to wear.

2. Land's End Solid Fleece Baby Snowsuit

Land's End makes one of the best baby snowsuits for everyday use. This toasty fleece snowsuit has a built-in hood and a water-repellent finish so you won't have to fuss with a hat for baby, and any snow that lands on baby won't soak in to cause a chill. A full-length zipper makes it easy to get the snowsuit on and off. Flaps on the arms and legs are easy to fold over little hands and feet, so booties and mittens aren't required for warmth.

Little Kids sizes are also available.
