I have a 15 month old who goes to daycare a couple of days in a week, and will need snow gear for playtime during the winter.
I looked online for snowsuits but was not sure what to get. I finally went to Carters and got her a snowsuit marked for a 12 month old (She is very petite and is barely 20 lbs).
I tried it on her when I got home. But although the length of the outfit seems just right, it is so bulky that the poor child actually toppled over a couple of times and was unable to get up without help!
I dont know what to do next. Does anyone have experience with dressing toddlers for snow? She's just starting to walk and run, so can some one recommend a good snowsuit that will keep her warm but not restrict her movements? I have spent the last two nights scouring shopping sites but very few of them have any good reviews, if at all any!
We do one piece fleece snowsuits until they're 2 or 3. Big bulky ones are hard to move in even for much bigger kids and they're not safe for the carseat so you need a secondary coat anyway. We've used Carter's fleece, Old Navy, LL Bean and Lands End. I find the LL Bean and Lands End better for kids who are actually outside playing in the snow frequently and they usually have fold over hand and foot covers.

yes- the fleece bunting from hanna andersson-- light cozy warm adorable. my now 2.5 yr old lived in his last winter and now I tried it on him toay and am glad it still fits. amazing and he loved it too. and you can throw a jacket over it if it is really cold
You little one will get the hang of it. It might take a little bit but it is better than frost bite. Oh by the way, we do not let her wear it in the car seat.
