Unfortunately singing “rain rain go away” doesn’t actually work, trust us, we’ve tried many times. Rain is just one of those unavoidable things when it comes to winter. It can make those weekend family adventures you had planned pretty soggy, or the school run a right palaver.
But we think a little rain shouldn’t dampen your plans. In fact, if you are just prepared with all the right gear, an adventure in the rain can be quite fun. So for this winter season we have handpicked our top wet weather essentials for your little one. Whatever the weather, you can still get out and about enjoying the wonderful outdoors with your family.
For your littlest one
For your little one that will be enjoying the wet winter adventure from the comfort of their pushchair, make sure they’re protected too. A pram suit is the perfect way to keep them snuggly and cosy from the comfort of their pushchair. We love the Elodie Details ones, they’re so stylish but practical at the same time.
A pushchair rain cover is also essential for keeping you pushchair passenger nice and dry. Opt for the same brand of your pushchair to make sure it fits correctly.
Give it some welly
Once your little one start moving on their own two feet, there is no stopping them come rain or shine. So make sure their little feet are ready for some puddle splashing with our range of wellies.
The much loved brand that is Liewood have introduced their collection of wonderful wellies and they are pretty amazing. They have two different types; their rain boots or their thermo rain boots. With a soft and warm teddy lining, their thermo rain boots are designed to keep your little one dry but also warmer for longer as they play outdoors.
Grass & Air wellies are pretty and practical but also have a sprinkle of magic! Their fleece lined wellies will blow your little one away with their unique colour changing magic when they get wet. They come in a whole range of colours for your little one to pick their favourite.
These are a winter weather classic that have been a parents favourite for generations, we all have photo’s from when we were younger ourselves to testify it. But all-in-ones are just so practical and useful it is no wonder why they're a firm favourite! Your little one is protected head to toe in a clever zipped coat, no water will be getting in when one of these is on duty.
For those super chilly wet days out, TOASTIE have you covered. Their puffer onsie’s are filled with eco-down fill which is thermo-regulating and breathable which will keep your little one super warm. Plus the outer is showerproof to keep them dry too.
As part of Liewood’s recent rainwear collection, they added the perfect waterproof, wind resistant and breathable all-in-one. These have the signature Liewood style that everyone loves combined with a long list of practical features ready to take on the wet weather. Plus, they're all made from recycled plastic polyester.
For the ultimate puddle jumping attire we go for the Grass & Air stomper suit. This all-in-one is ready to take on everything the weather is going to chuck at you with elasticated cuffs, waist and foot stirrups to ensure a snug fit against the weather. It’s tough enough to be pushed to the limits of wet outdoor play with the fully waterproof material and hood.
Investing in a good quality raincoat for your little one is one of those things you just won’t regret. It is the key ingredient to tackling the wet weather stress free and will be so useful all season long. Our range of waterproof and durable coats are ready for any winter adventure.
The elastic waist and cuffs of the MINI A TURE winter coats will keep your little one warm, whilst it’s durable waterproof outer will keep them dry. The Wally coat collection is our favourite for it’s timeless design. They also do coats for babies too, so even the smallest of explorers can stay stylish whilst staying dry and warm.
We love the longer length of the Liewood raincoats which will help give that extra protection from the rain. These all have the signature features we have come to love from Liewood’s new rain collection. Lightweight, breathable as well as being both waterproof and wind resistant making them ideal for long hours of play outside.
Down for dungarees
Dungarees are just brilliant. They offer versatility on those rainy days, you can pair with your favourite waterproof coat for when it is pouring down, then the coat can be removed once it stops raining but keep the dungarees on to keep their legs dry for puddle jumping. The suspenders ensure they stay on and are often adjustable to grow with little one.
Our top pick is the Liewood dungarees that come with a matching raincoat so you’re ready for whatever the weather has in mind. Each can be worn on it’s own or together. The coat has elastic cuffs, removable hood and completely waterproof. The dungarees have adjustable suspenders for the best fit, as well as having foot stirrups to stop them from riding up.
