Winter essentials for the whole family

Winter essentials for the whole family

The clocks have gone back and winter is most definitely just around the corner. But the cold weather shouldn't hamper your enjoyment of the great outdoors!

Fresh air works wonders and getting outside is a proven pick me up and, if you're pushing a sleeping baby, then even better! It's time out for you and your little one. 

Here are some of our favourite ways to keep toasty warm and dry for the whole family!

Buggy hand gloves are a godsend when you're strolling out in the cold. You need your hands free when you're not pushing your buggy to pick up the dropped dummy, text your pal to put the kettle on or zip up that fiddly coat on your toddler. These pram mitts  (invented by a mum) stay attached to the pram handle so you can just slip your hands in and out when you need to - genius! 

 

Little hands need to be kept warm too so, if you've got a scooter mad kid, you can't go wrong with super warm scooter muffs which work in the same way as the buggy version! There are a variety of patterns to choose from. 

 

Thermal socks keep your toes toasty even when you're stomping through puddles in your wellies. These autumnal colours will make you smile as you kick up some leaves. 

 

Baby footless tights are not just for girls! These are great as an added layer under trousers or dresses, and because they don't have fiddly feet they can be whipped on and off super fast.  They are also great for baby-wearing when little legs dangle outside the sling. 

 

A puddle suit is great for all seasons as it can be popped on over coats and trousers in winter or normal clothes on a summery but wet day! Regatta stock them from toddler sized upwards.  They make great hand-me-downs too as they're so durable and relatively less worn than normal outerwear.

 

We have to admit these lined, waterproof, cosy boots may not be the height of fashion but for they will last for years and see you through snow, frost and more - but will your buggy keep up? 

 

Cosy AND cute hats are a must, and ones that keep little necks and shoulders warm too are even better! This one comes in a variety of colours and is just super cute with fleecy ears!
