As the temperatures continue to drop, it’s easy to become overwhelmed with which products you need to buy your baby to protect them from the cold. Keeping your little ones warm and snuggly during the winter months is made a little easier with this ‘must have’ list from Tiffany Norris aka The Mummy Concierge.
If you’re looking for a cosy baby carrier at a reasonable price, opt for the Close Caboo Lite. It is a cross between a wrap and ring sling and the best thing is that it is just made from material so is not bulky at all – meaning you can easily put your coat on and wrap it around it – keeping both you and the baby warm. Buy yours here.
If you’re looking for something sturdier, the Thule Sapling Elite is your MUST HAVE if you are hiking or heading out to the slopes with a baby. When out in the elements, you need to be certain that the baby carrier you use is stable, comfortable and able to embrace any type of weather.
It’s on the more expensive side, but is worth every penny as it’s very easy to put on and you are able to swap it between parents without any trouble at all, due to its fully adjustable back panel and hip belt. It also has great storage for all baby essentials such as nappies, toys and rain/snow gear and (the best bit!) it even has a mirror so you can monitor your precious cargo!
If you’re wanting to keep your little one’s feet warm whilst still maintaining some style without breaking the bank, some cosy soft sole slinks are the perfect choice. The winter collection from Bobux offer lots of gorgeous wool lined shoes that add that little bit of extra warmth on the cold winter days. The best thing about these soft sole shoes is that they feature a great elastic opening which is designed to be easy to get on- and stay on. For those who want some added cuteness, opt for this gorgeous bunny design!
This incredibly gorgeous snowsuit from Mini-a-ture, is made of soft and light quilting material, meaning your little one can keep warm and cosy without overheating. With a fleece lining and waterproof material, it will master any winter weather conditions. And who can resist the stunning light rose colour?
SLEEPING BAGS & SLEEPSUITS
Keeping your little one warm and snug whilst they sleep is of upmost importance which is why Aden and Anais tick every box when it comes to their winter sleeping bags. Their sleeping bags feature easy-dress poppers at the shoulders and a zip that opens along the side and bottom, allowing for easy night-time changes. An additional popper under the arm ensures a better fit that grows with your little one. Buy it here.
French favourites Vertbaudet have include the ingenious feature of being able to add sleeves on a cold winter night making it perfect during the winter season. Buy it here.
Our friends at Babyboo have also designed their amazing sustainable Snuggleboo sleeping bags and sleepsuits, made using organic cotton so they are soft as well as sustainable. They also come with detachable sleeves and the sleepsuits give the baby the option to put their feet out.
No one does luxury baby clothing better than Patachoi and this gorgeous winter coat is no exception. Made from red flannel and with a peter pan neckline, your little one will be kept cosy from head to toe. If only it came in adult sizes! You can buy it here.
If there’s one place where your baby 100% needs to keep warm, it’s within their pushchair which is why this gorgeous sheepskin footmuff from baababy is an essential. I chose the “Fellhoff” (which also comes with a fabulous hand muff!) which is made from luxurious lambskin and is compatible with a large range of buggies (it fitted my Bugaboo Bee 3 stroller and my Baby Jogger City Elite stroller) The great thing about this footmuff is that not only does it seem incredibly cosy , but it can be unzipped and laid out flat for use as a playmat on your travels. The matching handmuff keeps hands incredibly warm (even without wearing gloves!) as well as making the buggy look stylish in the winter months! A must have for anyone heading to colder climates with a baby!

For the most stylish baby around, Elodie Details is the place to go when it comes to winter hats and gloves. This stunning ‘le petit Parisian’ hat and matching gloves are fleeced lined for extra warmth. The Cap is designed to a perfect shape and uses elasticity at the neck and chin strap to ensure the caps stays on even during the most exciting play time. Buy yours here.

Available in 5 different colours the Hat has a faux fur pompom on top, ear flaps with ties and fleece lined mittens meaning your little one will be warm and snuggly all winter through. Buy it here.
Spare a thought for the little ones who are teething this winter. Constantly gnawing on knuckles in the cold can’t be nice. Which is why these incredible teething mittens from Button and Blue are lifesavers. Not only are they incredibly cute (and warm) but they have little wooden rings on the end for your baby to nibble on. Buy them here.
