A Guide to Baby Coats
Kohl's has a wide variety of baby outerwear to choose from, with many different options and designs available, including baby denim jacket options, baby raincoat styles, and baby puffer jacket selections. We understand the importance of protecting your baby from the elements and ensuring they're comfortable in everything they wear. And while it may be easy to dress your baby for warm weather, it's important to also consider their comfort when colder temperatures move in.
Here are four tips to help you find the perfect baby coat for your little one.
Tip #1 - Consider the Weight of the Coat
Despite their warm benefits, winter coats that are too thick can limit a baby's movements, thus making them feel confined and uncomfortable. Additionally, thick coats will make it much more difficult for toddlers to move and walk. Therefore, it's important to consider a coat that isn't too heavy on the child. A thinner, lightweight coat for quick trips inside and out in the cold is sufficient in most climates. However, if you will be outside in cold temperatures for a long period of time, then a thick winter coat or snowsuit will come in handy.
Tip #2 - Find the Right Size
Because babies grow so much within the first year, it's unlikely that you will need a coat that lasts longer than a year. However, you can always go a size up so that your little one can later grow into the jacket over the season. Toddlers, on the other hand, are generally able to use a bigger coat for at least two winters. Not sure what size to get your little one? This baby sizing chart will help you stay ahead of your baby's growth spurts.
In general, manufacturers design clothes differently, so you can use this chart as a general guide. However, you can also refer to the sizing chart attached to each product or on the product packaging itself to find the best fit.
Tip #3 - Look for Easy Closures
While conducting your search for your ideal baby coat, consider jackets that feature easy closures such as zippers, buttons, and velcro. This ensures that you're able to easily put on the coat and take it off of your child. If you're shopping for a toddler, look for easy closures that they will eventually be able to master themselves such as a zip-front design.
Tip #4 - Dress for Maximum Comfort
When traveling, opt for light options such as a fleece or a midweight jacket that will provide warmth without bulking up in car seats. If your baby is wearing a thick coat in the car, you can remove it and replace it with a baby blanket or winter car seat cover. Because babies are usually carried in a stroller or seat covered with a blanket, it's unlikely that they will need a hooded jacket. However, toddlers may need one to protect them on those rainy, snowy, or windy days. And for those days that are a little chilly but not cold enough for long sleeve attire, opt for a zip-up vest instead.
