The best winter coats for babies and toddlers

Section: Kids' Fashion

Wintery weather is showing no signs of stopping and summer seems so far away. We are craving a much-needed holiday and prosecco cocktails on a beach somewhere far, far away.

During the cold months, you feel like you're constantly moisturising your little one's skin to prevent that dry flakiness that we all know too well. Plus you haven't left the warm comfort of the house and your baby's snuggly nursery for what feels like weeks. Then you realise, to your horror, you've run out of hand sanitizer to protect you and your bundle of joy from cold and flu. You have no choice but to venture out into the wilderness. But how will you protect your toddler from the elements?

A winter coat. Yes - it's time to buy some cosy and comfortable outdoor wear for your tots! We have scoured the online high-street to find the best winter coats for babies and toddlers to keep your kids warm this winter. From bang-on-trend faux fur leopard print, camouflage, brightly coloured parkas and mesmerising metals - being practical does not have to be boring!
