DS (ASD) loves playing in the snow, but has no sense of temperature and tends to sit a lie in it a lot so he ends up frozen really quickly. sad

Looking for suggestions for keeping him warm. I'd love some kind of all in one snow suit so there's no uncovered gaps, but he is a l08 cm so seems to be too big for a lot of the fleecy suits I look at, (we have largest regatta fluffy puddle all-in-one which is lovely but way too short in the leg)

Any ideas?

Skisuit.

Ds2 has one and they are almost completely waterproof and VERY warm.

If you are in reach of farm and country supplies shop... waterproof bib and brace and all in ones do go right up to adult sizes.

I got boys age 6-7 ones (which are a bit long for him, hes 111 cm) at Mole Avon country store and I'm planning on getting me a bib and brace set too.

oh, forgot to say why I buy from farm supplies shop... price. waterproof, WAY cheaper than a hiking/ camping shop. Waterproof Overalls for big kids were about 12 quid.

The down side is I can't find a URL to show you boys set.

www.molevalleyfarmers.com/mvf/store/products/child s-puddle-suit not quite what we have, but similar, sizes up to about age 9.

we have suit ski trousers for the girls. They wear leggings and trackies underneath and wellies. They then wear, vests, tshirt, jumpers and coats, plus hat, scraft and gloves.
We really dont like cold and wet in this house wink

Decathlon sell all in one ski suits up to age 14, they are about £20 and really good quality, we had one which did 2 children 2 winters each.smile

fleece trousers

I bought these sets for both my dc, they are good all year round, very good quality and they come with height measurements - I would get the 120 for your ds as the elastic on the dungaree strap is adjustable.

Thank you for all the advice. I went for a ski suit in the end, never even thought to google for "ski suits" blush.
