5 great snowsuits for infants and babies to help them brave the cold

Dressing your baby for winter can be quite tricky considering that he or she can’t tell you if the temperature in the car is too cold or too warm. Thus, choosing the right gear is extremely important when it comes to keeping your baby comfortable and dry.

When you’re looking for the warmest, most durable, and of course cutest snowsuits for infants or a baby bunting suit, go for one that:

  • Has moisture-wicking loose and breathable fabric
  • Is waterproof or at least water-resistant
  • Can fit over your baby’s clothes
  • Has a zipped opening or one with snaps that’s easy to fasten and unfasten

Also, we have provided a list of the best snowsuits for infants that possess all of these qualities.

The North Face Infant Thermoball Eco Bunting

This snowsuit proves that super-cuteness combines well with practicality. It has a relaxed fit and asymmetrical zipped closures that allows for worry-free diaper changing. Additionally, the suit has a handy zip guard to prevent unexpected (but common) zipper mishaps. Also, its lining is made of high-pile fleece, with fold-over cuffs at the hands and feet. Another advantage for the environmentally conscious family is that it’s fabricated from recycled, eco-friendly material.

Arctix Infant Bunting Snow Suit

Your baby will be styling in any of the available bright colors. This baby bunting suit is designed to keep your infant warm in extremely low temperatures without the discomfort of being bulky. It comes with a diagonal zipper that makes it easy to put on and take off in addition to fold-over flaps that will keep your little one’s hands and feet warm. Plus, it’s water-resistant.

Muddy Puddles 3-in-1 Scamp Hooded Snowsuit

This adorable yet practical snowsuit allows for fun and easy winter outings because it’s waterproof. It also has a removable fleece that you can use as a warm underlayer or on its own without the outer shell. Attached to it is an adjustable hood that has Sherpa lining and a double-zipped closure in front.

Gap Baby ColdControl Ultra Max Snowsuit

When you’re looking for both functionality and a unique pattern (vintage palm or flint gray), you might like the Gap Baby ColdControl Ultra Max Snowsuit. The front double zippers make it easy to slip this snowsuit on and off. With a water-resistant shell on the outside and a fluffy inner layer on the inside, your baby will be well-protected from the cold. Also, you’ll love those cute little ears on top of the hood.

Columbia Baby Powder Lite Reversible Bunting Suit

For two distinct looks wrapped into one bunting suit, you can opt for the Columbia Baby Powder Lite. This baby bunting suit stands out because it’s reversible. One side is two-toned with the top being one color and the bottom half being another. When you turn the suit “inside out,” you get a fun pattern or a different solid color.

Moreover, your baby will gain full coverage from the cold with a soft chin guard and fold-over ends on the sleeves and feet. The crossover zipper provides a secure closure without hindering your little one’s movement.

So, as you can see, there are many choices of snowsuits for infants. Now that you have some ideas about which features to look for, the fun part begins — finding the cutest one that keeps your precious little bundle warm, toasty, and protected from the elements during those winter outings.

These 4 trash cans will make changing diapers a breeze
A baby on the floor on their stomach looking over their shoulder.

You love your baby, but let’s be honest, you are not a fan of smelly diapers. They can quickly stink up a room, so instead of tossing them outside or just letting the smell overpower your baby’s room, a diaper trash can is the way to go. Diaper pails keep the scent out using some version of a containment method—a trap door for a diaper to squeeze through. While you don’t have to invest in a diaper pail, it may be worth your while to get one yourself or add it to your registry for your upcoming shower.

When deciding which baby diaper pail you’d like, there are a few details to look into. You will want to consider the following:
Do you prefer plastic to stainless steel?
Plastic can absorb odor even with liners, so if that’s a concern for you, you may want to go with a stainless steel can.
The size of the diaper pail
If you have an older baby or toddler, or more than one baby, you may want a larger diaper pail. Diaper pails can hold as few as 30 diapers at one time and can go up into the hundreds. Even though baby diaper pails prevent odor, you shouldn’t let too many sit in the pail for an extended period. 
Trap door
A lot of diaper pails function with mini trap doors underneath their lids. You push your diaper through, and the door keeps the yucky smells out. Some trash cans have a squeegee-like opening to push diapers through, while others have sliding lids. You’ll have to figure out which style you prefer.

Parents say these 10 night-lights under $10 help their kids fall asleep
A star-shaped night-light

A newborn baby often wakes every two to three hours to eat. During this time, parents may dream about the day their child sleeps longer stretches. Even though toddlers typically need 11 to 14 hours per day of sleep (including daytime naps), they can struggle to meet this mark. Two-year-old sleep regression is one reason. They may also start to become afraid of the dark.
Generally speaking, experts recommend keeping a room dark. But every baby is different. If your child has a fear of the dark, a night-light can help calm them and allow them to get those must-needed ZZZs.
It doesn’t have to break the bank, either. Parents swear that these 10 night-lights under $10 help their kids fall asleep.
