Baby snowsuits aren’t usually an item that pops up on a baby registry, so it likely it won’t be top of mind when choosing clothes for a little one. But if your family lives in a colder climate or hits the slopes often, you’ll want your munchkin to be prepared, too.
When shopping for a baby snowsuit, you’ll want to consider your baby’s age and level of mobility. If they’re going to be sitting in a stroller, you’re probably going to want to prioritize thick, warm layers.
On the other hand, if your baby is already walking, a footless snowsuit is key. And if your baby is crawling or likes to play in the snow, waterproof material will be key.
“I think material is a big consideration when picking out a baby snowsuit,” says Healthline Parenthood editor Saralyn Ward. Ward lives in Colorado and her family frequents the mountains often to ski and hike.
“It’s nice to have a lightweight fleece option for warmer days, but my go-to is an insulated, waterproof bunting with convertible feet. If possible, try the suit on your baby and pick them up. Make sure it’s not too slippery to hold onto — especially if you’ll be carrying them in one hand and a load of gear in the other!”
You’ll also want to consider the fact that babies grow quickly, so look around for something that will last you a while. And finally, be sure to consider the ease of getting the snowsuit on and off.
In choosing the below snowsuits, we looked for well-known brands that offered high-quality materials and versatility in their products. We considered the level of insulation, price, and product reviews, and also consulted the opinion of Healthline staff who’ve used these products themselves.
A quick reminder: you should never buckle your child into a car seat while they’re wearing bulky layers. Make sure to read what the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has to say about winter car seat safety to ensure you’re keeping your little one safe in every season.

Best overall baby snowsuit
Patagonia is known for being a leader in the outdoor apparel market, and though their items are not cheap, they are made sustainably, built to last, and offer incredible resale value for parents who consign.
The Patagonia Infant Hi-Loft Down Sweater Bunting packs small and fits nicely without a lot of bulk, but offers a ton of warmth with 700-fill down. It is footless, but offers foldover hands to keep those fingers warm on cold days.
The dual zippers make getting in and out of the snowsuit fast and easy, and with extra length, it will be easy for your kiddo to sit, stand, and crawl as they like. Patagonia buntings tend to run large, which means you might get more than one season out of it. But do be sure to try it on before buying, if you can.
Best baby snowsuit for bigger babies
Most ski buffs are well acquainted with Columbia outdoor gear, and its reputation for good quality at an affordable price extends to baby and kid items, too. This waterproof, duck down snowsuit is soft and cozy, offering a microfleece hood and foldover hands and feet.
This snowsuit is on the wider side, and many parents state in their reviews that it runs exceptionally big. If you’re in a milder climate, this snowsuit will do the job nicely with its 450-fill down and waterproof exterior.
Best lightweight baby snowsuit
If all you need is a warm outer layer to cover baby’s hands and feet on colder days, this is a great choice. The Carter’s sherpa pram is a favorite of parents with younger babies, who don’t need a bulky, waterproof snowsuit, but something to keep their young baby cozy and warm.
This pram is footed and has foldover hands, with adorable ears on the hood. It’s only offered up to 9 months’ size, so it’s not intended for walking babies.
One mom from Portland, Maine, told us, “As soon as I put this on my baby, he fell asleep!” And as someone who has witnessed that her my own baby, I can tell you that this is one cozy snowsuit.
Best baby snowsuit for colder climates
Obermeyer has an established reputation for high-quality adult snow gear. Hailing from Aspen, Colorado, Obermeyer seems to know what they’re doing when it comes to cold weather duds.
The Kleine bunting has double zippers that zip all the way down, making it easy to get in and out. It’s also water- and wind-proof with synthetic fill and an oversized, fleece-lined hood. Your little one will be ready for anything in this warm suit.
Best baby snowsuit for walkers
The North Face is wildly popular cold weather gear, and their products are a common go-to for babies as well. Yes, it’s a bit of a splurge, but you can rest assured that this lightweight, eco-friendly suit will keep your baby super warm.
The ThermoBall EcoBunting quilted softshell is insulated with synthetic fibers that retain their warmth in wet weather, and have the warmth equivalent of 600-fill down. Some parents say that the outer layer is not very waterproof, though, so this might not be the best choice for kids who love to play in the snow.
Best waterproof baby snowsuit
Most affordable baby snowsuit
Babies and toddlers grow so fast, so it makes sense that parents would want to snag a deal on a piece of gear that is normally a bigger-ticket item. This puffer-style snowsuit offers a hood, feet, and a soft sherpa lining for ultimate warmth and comfort.
Beyond that, there’s not a lot of bells and whistles here. This item is another layer to keep baby warm, but isn’t waterproof nor insulated, so probably not the best choice for playing in the snow or colder climates.
Best baby snowsuit for newborns
Lots of layers on tiny babies is always awkward, and sometimes downright unsafe. If your tiny one will be out and about in a stroller, it’s often easier to keep the layers over the carrier, rather than on their body, under the straps. The Bundleme was made for this exact reason.
This bunting bag is made of cozy, machine-washable fleece, comes in a variety of colors, and easily zips on and off for quick temperature regulation. JJ Cole does make waterproof options as well, which is great for city dwellers who will be pushing a stroller down the sidewalk in all types of weather.
Just note: the Bundleme is not intended for use with car seats. Make sure to familiarize yourself with the AAP guidelines before use.
Best fleece baby snowsuit
How cute is this bear-costume-turned-fleece-snowsuit? It’s made of high pile fleece that’s 100 percent recycled, so it’s good for the environment too. With elastic cuffs on both the hands and feet, this bunting is a great option to grow with your baby as they learn to crawl, walk, and clap.
This suit zips from the neck to the ankle, making for easier diaper changes. While not insulated or waterproof, this thick fleece bunting may become your go-to layer for being out and about on cooler days.
