I want something warm and practical but cute too.
I don't want pink or fur collar and cuffs, or an all in one.
Have seen some quite nice ones in Monsoon and Next but nothing that is quite right.
Any ideas?

actually, I say 8m, but she will be 9-12/15m at the age she'll wear it

Jojomamanbebe do some nice polartec coats in a range of colours.

ooh, I forgot about them! Thanks I will have a look!
Just looked at M&P too but they are pink and furry sad

They are lovely! Really like the red duffle coat one!
saw this one too and love it! It looks a bit grown up for a baby though, do you think?
Will bear them both in mind but sensible head says 'red polartec'! Can't afford both!

there are some lovely John Rocha ones in debenhams, they are around £28 , khaki, lining is pink though. also matalan can be really good for coats and jackets.

That other one is gorgeous too! I always getted suckered into buying more than I intended on JJMB but their stuff is so lovely & much nicer than the swathes of pink stuff in the high street.

I did have a look in Debenhams but wasn't struck. I will definately pop into Matalan and If I don't see anything I like I may well order both from JJMB and see which one is best on her - or is that lethal?!

popped into Matalan and there was a nice plum coloured coat for £9! The problem was that the arm length must have been fitted on an ape and even the 3-6m was massive, the sleeves were double her arm length!

Just ordered the one from JJMB grin
