Baby, Its Cold Outside: Childrens Outerwear

Your kids sprint outside without the slightest concern about the weather. Most children will merrily play in the snow/rain/Sandy without a complaint, while nervous parents holler from the front door, “You need a jacket!” We hear you. Those little ones are carefree until the inevtiable cold or frost bite settles in, and then its up to mom and dad to remedy the situation. We’ve rounded up your best bets for keeping little ones snug enough so they can play outside all winter long. It’s cold out there for little people, but wrap them up in the right outerwear- be it a hat, a vest, or a parka- and they will (silently, of course) be thanking you for keeping the cold at bay.
