As the weather cools off and the leaves start to change, it's time to think about all things cozy: sweaters, fluffy blankets, and cute knit hats. And if you’re expecting a baby in these next couple of months, it’s also time to start thinking about what winter baby clothes you should get for your newborn.
Best Winter Baby Clothes
Here are the best winter baby clothes and outfits of 2022. Stock your baby's wardrobe now so you'll be ready for Jack Frost's arrival.
Carter's Hooded Fuzzy-Lined Cape
Did you know that babies should not wear winter coats (even thick fleece sweaters) when they’re in a car seat? You want your baby warm both in and out of the car, but it’s hard without the hassle of taking their jacket on and off every time you go out. Carter's Baby Girls Hooded Fuzzy-Lined Cape solves this problem. Thanks to its poncho design, it can be worn in the car seat provided that you place the straps under—not over—the poncho.
In addition to making trips to and from the car easier (and warmer!), there’s another benefit to this hooded cape: no zippers or snaps. Getting ready is a breeze! It’s machine-washable, too.
Carter's Baby Boys' Hooded Bear Winter Cardigan
Nothing says "sweater weather" quite like a cardigan, and with Carter's Baby Boys' Hooded Bear Cardigan, your baby boy will stay warm and stylish. The soft cotton won't feel itchy on your baby's sensitive skin, and it's machine washable, making it a snap to clean. The bear face on the hood makes it an adorable edition to any baby wardrobe.
Finn + Emma Bringing Home Baby Set
Adorable footie pajamas are a wardrobe staple for infants during every season, but there's something especially cozy about them in chilly winter weather. The Finn + Emma Bringing Home Baby Set is made from 100% organic cotton, meaning no synthetic materials or toxic flame retardants will come in contact with their delicate skin. The organic cotton hat to help prevent heat loss through baby's head, and because the American Academy of Pediatrics advises against babies sleeping with blankets, footie pajamas play an important role in helping them stay warm while sleeping without sacrificing safety.
Baby Boys' Just One You Baby Fox 3-Piece Bodysuit and Pants Set
Staying warm in the winter is all about keeping those cute little fingers and toes warm and cozy. The Baby Boys' Just One You Baby Fox 3-Piece Bodysuit and Pants Set ensures warmth by keeping shirttails tucked in and baby toes covered with footie-style pants. This 100% cotton set features nickel-free snaps on a long-sleeve onesie, pants, and a coordinating hat.
Simple Joys 2-Pack Hooded Jump Suits
Fleece is a must-have in anyone’s winter wardrobe, and these hooded fleece jumpsuits from Simple Joys by Carter do not disappoint. Soft, thick fleece jumpsuits work well for playtime at home, but the fleece-lined hood also helps baby stay warm during trips to the store or other errands. The jumpsuits also feature elastic in the cuffs to help keep out cold air drafts.
First Impressions Baby Girls' Jacket Snowbag with Faux Fur Trim
A jacket is a cold-weather staple, and your baby's wardrobe isn't complete without one. The First Impressions Baby Girls' Jacket Snowbag with Faux Fur Trim is a stylish way to bundle up your baby girl, providing her with all the warmth she needs. The faux fur trim that lines the hood assures your baby stays warm from head to toe.
Cat + Jack Plaid Trapper Hat and Gloves
Without much hair, a newborn’s head can quickly lose heat, so it's important to always protect your baby's head. Cat + Jack Plaid Trapper fleece-lined hat and mitten sets are cute and functional. Cozy earflaps keep little ears warm while the velcro chip straps keep the hat from shifting or falling off.
Tip: Keep an extra hat and glove set in your diaper bag just in case they get lost.
