With storms on the horizon - you’ll still need a warm winter coat for your little one this day

It’s the time of year when days are shorter, nights are longer, temperatures are colder and the weather is wetter.

So, we all need to make sure that we’re wrapped up warm - and that includes the little ones.

What do I need to look for in a good winter coat?

A good winter coat will provide warmth and also protection from water.

Choosing the correct coat for your child will be the difference between them wanting to enjoy the great outdoors all throughout the winter season and asking to go home.

No matter which coat you pick, you’ll want to be sure it will keep them dry and snug but is also breathable so that they can be as comfortable as possible while they play and socialise.

It’s important that it’s also roomy enough for them to wear their favourite winter jumper underneath too, and also allow enough space for them to be able to move freely.

You also want there to be enough space for them to grow through the season - and if you buy smartly then the coat you choose will also last them winter after winter.

Below are nine of the best winter coats available for boys and girls of all ages.
