Shop with me! What do you think of these coats for DD (17mo)?

DD needs a warm wool-type coat for days when a fleece or rain coat is not quite enough - something padded perhaps but not too thick, so she can still fit into the buggy & carseat (and doesn't overheat if we briefly go into a shop/cafe).

She has fairly strong colouring, with brown hair and bright blue eyes, so am thinking something in red or navy. A hood would be cute.

A duffle coat perhaps?

Mothercare has this one: red buttons

Or this one from Next? black 3 button

I never bought a winter coat for a girl before, and DS was always given one from his cousins!

Thanks :-)

Love the Next one best....Mothercare one too slimline for a toddler and JoJo one too bulky. DD1 is always bought yucky coats...I am soo ungrateful blush

The Next one is the nicest!

any other suggestions out there?

The Next one is the best because it looks the most 'loose' fitting - she will be able to run and climb like any other 17mo without being restricted by her coat smile

I like the jojo one best. I got a lovely one for my 12mo at M&S. Also got her a really fleecy hoody from Baby Gap sale which is good for those chilly days when it's not quite coat whether or just going on car trips.

I think the Jo Jo one is the best. The Next one looks like it would blow open where there are no buttons which is no good on a cold day.

I got the Next one for DD - it's gorgeous but really weird sizing, strangely long arms. I'm going to take it back and see if I've got a defective one.
