Dress your baby and toddler the Scandinavian way this winter

by Scandinavian mum

MeMini girls Snowsuit It’s already December, and by now most Scandinavian babies and toddlers, in fact most children up to school age will be dressed in a snowsuit when outdoors. There are some great snowsuits on the market, and every year they are thoroughly tested for water resistance, durability etc for parents that want to be sure that their little one can stay warm and dry when playing outisde.
In Norway the children would wear wool tights, socks and top , and wool or fleece one suit and a waterproof rain set on top. Wool products warm and insulate children’s bodies in both cold and wet weather. Wool also regulates body heat, keeping children comfortable on milder days. Scandinavian children usually change from rain sets to snowsuit when the temperature drops down to a few plus degrees or less.
There are a lot of Scandinavian snowsuits on the market. Didriksons, Fransa, Hollys, Hummel, Katvig, Lego, Mini a Ture, Minymo, Molo, Name It, Småfolk, Ticket To Heaven, Ver de Terre and Wheat to mention some.
Of all the Scandinavian brands I think Ticket to Heaven is very nice. But Wheat has some very nice ones as well. Katvig and Molo has a bit more trendy retro look. In other words something for every one’s taste and need.
A colder climate requires warmer clothes. However it can be quite cold in the UK as well. And a few british shops do stock proper snowsuits.Nordic Kids stock a few, from Molo and from Mini Rodini. Rose and Robin stock snowsuits from Cupcake and Molo.
Viking Kids stock some very warm snowsuits from Didriksons and Isbjorns of Sweden. This is probably the snowsuits you would consider if you are going to visit Lapland this Christmas. 🙂
