Baby snowsuits

Is there a more adorable sight than a baby wrapped up snugly in a snowsuit? But of course, there's more to a baby snowsuit than the aesthetic; keeping your baby warm is essential when it comes to their health and wellbeing and knowing that they're comfy and cosy when you're exposed to the elements should put your mind at ease. 

There are lots of different baby snowsuits available, ranging from thick quilted suits to more lightweight options designed to protect your little one from the rain. If you need to get your baby kitted out for winter or you want to gift the perfect baby snowsuit, then fear not; we've got things wrapped up. 

Here are the best baby snowsuits to buy in 2021.

1. Best overall baby snowsuit: Cosy Polarfleece All-In-One

Cosy Polarfleece snowsuit

Price: £39 | Buy now from JoJo Maman Bébé

"JoJo have lovely fleece snowsuits which I love" - PDR

"They can be used on wet days all year around. They have elasticated cuffs, wrists and ankles so I always size up massively." - dancingwitch

JoJo Maman Bébé is a brand that Mumsnetters love and this Cosy Polarfleece All-In-One is a big hit on the forums. It's a great pick for environmentally-conscious parents too as each snowsuit is made from 100% recycled polyester, which equates to approximately 22 recycled plastic bottles. 

It's clear that a lot of thought has gone into this snowsuit, which comes in three colourful designs. It has two long front zips for easy dressing, a water-repellent finish and is available in a range of sizes from birth to three years. The suits from 6-9 months onwards come with mitten clips attached too. 

To get as much wear out of this suit as possible, Mumsnetters advise parents to size up, because the elasticated wrists and ankles allow for extra material that your child can grow into.

It seems that JoJo Maman Bébé has covered every base here, which is why we've highlighted the Cosy Polarfleece All-In-One snowsuit as the best overall baby snowsuit.

Key specs

  • Material: 100% recycled polyester fleece
  • Size range: 0-3 years

2. Best budget baby snowsuit: Bebe Bonito Baby Fleece all-in-one

Bebe Bonito snowsuit

Price: £12 | Buy now from Amazon

"Great value for money" - nnicol96 

Some baby snowsuits can only be worn outdoors, but this snowsuit, from Bebe Bonito Baby, can be worn in both the pram and the car. At £12, it's an absolute bargain and there are 10 different designs to choose between too. We like this stripy navy number, which features a cute car motif. 

Key specs

  • Material: 100% polyester
  • Size range: 0-6 months

3. Warmest baby snowsuit: Columbia Snuggly Bunny Snowsuit

Columbia baby snowsuit

Price: £35 | Buy now from Amazon

"I bought the Columbia Snuggly Bunny suit. Money well spent as we've used it every day so far" - HelloRose

If you're after something that's super warm, then you can't go wrong with a Columbia Snowsuit. Yes, it's kind of pricey, but the power down fill will keep your little one warm on the coldest of winter days. It also has fold-over hands and feet (to protect little fingers and toes) and an insulated hood. The soft fleece lining will be soft against your baby's skin too.

Key specs

  • Material: 100% polyester
  • Size range: 0-24 months

4. Best lightweight baby snowsuit: Umkaumka All-In-One Snowsuit

Umkaumka baby snowsuit

Price: From £32 | Buy now from Amazon

This snowsuit might not be suitable for very small babies, but we thought it was definitely worth a mention as it's perfect if you're seeking something lightweight. 

It's made from breathable material and there's room for clothes underneath, meaning that you can layer your little one up on particularly cold days. It has two full-length zips, making it easy to slip on and the elastic cuffs and foot loops will fit over gloves and boots. It has insulated seat patches too, so little bottoms will be protected when they sit down somewhere cold. 

Key specs

  • Material: Polyester
  • Size range: 12 months-4 years 

5. Best waterproof baby snowsuit: Regatta Unisex Baby Padded Snowsuit

Regatta baby snowsuit

Price: From £27 | Buy now from Amazon

"Regatta is decent quality" - KirstenBlest 

Regatta is an outdoor clothing brand that Mumsnetters trust, so it's not surprising that a Regatta design features in our roundup. This waterproof baby snowsuit has a water-repellent finish and it's machine washable (unlike other waterproofs). It comes in two different designs, each featuring that famous toddler television icon; Peppa Pig. 

Key specs

  • Material: Polyester
  • Size range: 6 months-5 years

6. Best quilted baby snowsuit: Famuka Baby Puffer Snowsuit

Famuka baby snowsuit

Price: From £27 | Buy now from Amazon

This quilted baby snowsuit is giving us strong marshmallow-man vibes (in the most adorable way possible). It's warm, it's waterproof and it comes in four different colours; you can choose between light blue, red, pink and black. In addition to the suit, you get matching mittens and booties included in the price. 

Key specs

  • Material: Polyester
  • Size range: 6 months-2 years

7. Best fleece baby snowsuit: Haokaini Newborn Baby Hooded Knitted Romper Fleece

Haokaini baby snowsuit

Price: From £24 | Buy now from Amazon

You could be forgiven for thinking this was an average knitted romper, but it actually has a fleece lining and this all-in-one is soft and breathable and will keep your baby toasty warm. 

The wooden buttons and the cable-knit design give it a traditional feel and there are five colours to choose from including blue, pink, red, white and grey. We think that the red snowsuit could double up as a festive outfit!

Key specs

  • Material: Acrylic fibres
  • Size range: 0-18 months

8. Best baby snowsuit with gloves: Snonook Fleece Baby Bunting Hooded Romper Bodysuit with Fold-Over Mitten and Footed Cuffs

Snonook baby snowsuit

Price: From £26 | Buy now from Amazon

"I had an excellent fleecy oversuit with fold over hands and feet. Lasted ages and could go under a coat or be used in the car seat" - Calmdown14

If you're looking for a snowsuit with gloves, then this design is a winner. The rollover cuffs convert to mittens and booties, meaning that your child has extra protection on particularly cold days. 

We love the design and the bear ears and cub-print detail are nothing short of adorable. This suit comes in nine different colours but we'd be tempted to go full-on bear with the brown number. As well as being mega cute, this suit is practical; the zip makes it easy to deal with nappy changes. 

Key specs

  • Material: 100% polyester
  • Size range: 0-24 months

9. Best snowsuit for toddlers: Spotty Otter Explorer III Down Chillicub Snowsuit

Spotty Otter snowsuit

Price: £157 | Buy now from Amazon

"Pricey but amazingly good" - BikeRunSki

Spotty Otter describes itself as the "Rolls Royce of kids' outdoor kit" and it's fair to say that Mumsnetters are impressed too. Yes, it comes with a hefty price tag, but this snowsuit is built to last. 

It's clear that a lot of thought has gone into the design. Features include a removable hood (with a removable faux fur trim), Velcro adjustable cuffs and reflective trims. But we like the sound of the hand-warming pockets most of all. 

There's no denying that this is a pricey buy, but you get what you pay for with Spotty Otter. And this would see you through the winter season, snow days and family ski holidays. 

Key specs

  • Material: 88% nylon, 12% spandex
  • Size range: 1-8 years

10. Best snowsuit for newborns: Fairy Baby Baby Snowsuit

Fairy baby snowsuit

Price: £17 | Buy now from Amazon

As well as being totally adorable, this snowsuit by Fairy Baby is soft, warm and breathable. It also has snap buttons from the neckline to the ankle, to assist with nappy changes. 

If this bear-hooded pink snowsuit isn't for you, then there are seven other colours to choose from. Seriously, if you're buying a snowsuit for a newborn, then you can't go wrong with this design; it’s cute, affordable and practical to boot. 

Key specs

  • Material: Cotton and polyester
  • Size range: 0-12 months

How to buy the best baby snowsuit

If you want to buy the best baby snowsuit, then you need to think about where and when you'll be using it. If you want one that's safe to wear in the car (for example), then you'll need a particular type of design, which isn't too bulky. But if you're looking for something for bitterly cold days, you'll be more interested in how warm the snowsuit is. 

How to dress a baby for cold weather

When temperatures drop, protecting your little one from the cold is essential. Layering up tends to work well, as you can add and remove items to suit the weather. 

It's also important that you use your common sense and to look for cues from your baby that signal they're too warm, or too cold. If in doubt, then the NHS has a handy baby care guide

Can snowsuits be worn from birth?

Snowsuits can be worn from birth, but you need to be sensible about it and dress for the situation. It wouldn't be appropriate, for example, to put your newborn in the car wearing a thick, quilted snowsuit that's suitable for outdoor use only. 

What is the best baby snowsuit to buy?  

The baby snowsuit you choose to purchase, will depend on your requirements. We think that JoJo Maman Bébé's Cosy Polarfleece All-In-One is the best overall snowsuit, but there are others available that will meet particular needs. Just decide what's important to you and go from there. 

How we chose our recommendations

We spent several hours sifting through Mumsnet's forums for recommendations from our users on the baby snowsuits they rated most highly. We were also on the lookout for poor reviews of products to avoid.

We also consulted recommendations from experts, consumer websites and print media and made sure we included brands that regularly appeared in top 10 lists.

We then looked at reviews for each of our longlisted baby snowsuits to check that previous customers were satisfied with their purchases.

By doing this, we whittled our longlist down and chose a top list that we think offers something for everybody.
