I think Echo had three or four snowsuits during her first winter. Do you have mom 2 mom sales where you live? I found some great stuff at those! I hate spending a ton of money on something that will fit them for two months at most.
well thsi woman i found on CL is selling three for 25 or a peice they are 10. I LOVE the teddy bear ones she has evie had one in pink. she has 2 3-6 and 3 months. im thinking about gettnig the 3-6 but i worry about it being too big?
Why do you need a snow suit? Won't she still be in a carrier then? Just get the warm carrier cover. Normal clothes with the cover works GREAT! It's cheap too, like $20 at Walmart. That's all I used with Abby and it worked great.
I would get the three month or wait until you have the baby so you know how big to get, and I always used a bunting, a suit that is very warm but made of polar fleece so still thin enough to use is a carseat, columibia makes one I love
As long as you don't need it for bringing baby home, I think you can maybe wait and see how big baby is born and see which size is needed in general? IIRC LO stayed home the first week. But if it is needed in December, relatively soon after birth, I would probably take a 0-3 months.
Here is a thread that explains why winter coats, and snow suits, are NOT safe for use in car seats: http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f7...ter-coats.html (Let's revisit car seats & winter coats) I understand that it's cold. I live in Michigan. However, it's not safe to use a car seat with a coat or snow suit. With Echo, I would cover her seat, and take her out to the already heated car. When we switched to a convertible seat, I would bundle her in a blanket, take her out to the already warmed up car, and put her in the seat, covering her with the blanket at the end. It get's BITTER cold here, and she was never cold when I did it that way. In the event of an accident, the material compresses, and your baby could be thrown from the seat. Explain that to any people who give you a hard time! I would rather have a baby with chilly fingers than one with a broken neck.
