wrap a blanket round his legs and bum

or tights and trousers

He is way too wriggly for that omdb! I'd have a blanket on the wheels

Extra pair of fleece-type trousers (next size up) over what he is already wearing, was what I did!

Have you tried a BuggySnuggle or Pupabag. We have just bought the latter (DD is 21 months too, and quite tall) and it is MASSIVE, really long, I imagine it will fit for ages yet.

Lol, I just have DS in normal trousers and socks (he can't walk yet). Figure he's got to get used to the cold some time, he's British!

i think by that age they move around enough not to get cold cold like babies do. But if it's really cold i'd get fleece overtrousers

He's fine...think I am just lamenting him growing up so quick wink...dd has just started school and ds is huge...

Don't get a Pupabag, they are shite. angry

The person selling them is shite. angry

She promised it would fit my Maclaren Techno XT and she would not give me a refund when it just would not fit. angry

I ended up having to cut a hole in it for the leg strap to go through.

There is someone who makes them (I don't know her, she is a friend of a friend) and she can be found on Facebook. Look up 'Cosy Toes with love'.

Jan, I know what you mean - what about a JOJO fleece all in, they do age 2/3 I know DS goes beserk if he is wearing that and I try and bundle him into BS too grin

He loved the jojo all in one though as still so easy to move in and kept him toasty! Also have just got the fleece lined showerproof trousers from there and they are fab too. Really size up in those though!

DD is 20 months and the cosytoes that Chunkle Munkle made is massive, should be fine for ages.
