Dressing Baby for the Winter

Jackets and coats make a huge difference!

When most people think of baby clothes they conjure images of cute sailor suits and frilly pink dresses or perhaps little white “Onesies,” soiled with spit-up Isomil formula. Rarely do they think of heavy winter coats and wind resistant jackets. In a cold climate, however (or on cold days in a warm climate), babies need the protection of a coat or jacket just as much as an adult does, in fact more so.

Fortunately the designers of the finest baby apparel are well aware of the need infants and toddlers have for warm winter wear and have designed several lines of simply adorable coats, jackets, and other winter wear just for the little ones in your family. Most of these are available in fine stores everywhere as well as through mail order and online retailers. The examples listed here were found on the designer baby clothing site known as Tutti Bella (“all beautiful” in Italian).

Jean Bourget

For the days when the weather is cool, not “cold,” designer Jean Bourget offers a smart and attractive hooded Khaki Spring Coat. With a lightly striped inner lining, four silver snap fasteners, and a left breast pocket, your little man will be the coolest bambino on the campo da giuoco. Available in sizes from three to twenty-four months, this item retails for $62.95.


To help keep older baby girls all warm and toasty, Zutano offers up a gorgeous reversible Pink Print Jacket. Made of 100% cotton, this is a coat for double occasions with a pink floral print on one side and seersucker stripes on the other. The jacket zips in front and includes a hood. This Zutano masterpiece comes in sizes from 24 months to five years and sells for $48.95.

Of course not everyone can afford to clothe their babies in designer styles at runway model prices. While $50-$60 is not a bad price for an older child’s winter coat, it is a bit steep for a baby’s piece that, purchased in September will probably no longer fit in March. For the rest of us there’s Wal-Mart, Target, Kmart, and, for the more adventurous, Old Navy. Baby coats can be purchased at these locations for prices that are a bit more down to Earth and the items will still keep the kiddies warm all winter long.

The point is that it is important to remember that babies get the chills and need to be kept warm just like the rest of us. When purchasing baby clothes, make sure that you allot space in both the budget and the closet for a good quality coat or jacket to protect your baby when the colder climes settle in and old Jack Frost starts blowing his icy vapor across your part of the world.
