This sounds like the perfect situation. I for the life of me cannot find a coat that will fit my little one. I havent looked too much online but I feel like I looked EVERYWHERE here and have found nothing. Everything I find in his size is those snowsuit fuzzy things I cant find just a coat.

Something like this looks like it is thin and warm.

Re: Baby coats

Something similar to this is usually what I get the kids. Then they can wear the liner in their car seat and have the warm coat for playing outside or when we will be out in the cold for a bit.

He will be 1 next month but would probably need a 6/9 month. 12mo is huge on him. One of his fleece pullovers he wears often is 3mo....

Re: Baby coats

When my kiddos are still that little we do one piece fleece suits. They make footed ones for babies and ones without feet for walkers. Then we just do layers underneath and a blanket in the car seat.

Re: Baby coats

I know this is an older thread but I came across this today and thought of you. The best part is because it is fleece instead of sewing the two layers together you could tie the ends like a no sew blanket.http://www.nashvillewife.com/2017/01...t-ponchos.html

we do "car coats" in the winter which are basically the fall coats. DD wears a columbia fleece and DS a warmer hoodie from LL Bean. Sounds like what you have is prefect.

Re: Baby coats

One of the easiest ways to tell if the coat can or can no the worn is to adjust the straps to properly fit the baby with the coat on. Then, take off the coat and put the baby back in the carseat. If the straps are loose, that coat or jacket should not be worn while in the carseat to ensure the child will be securely restrained in the event of a crash.
