    I'm starting to prepare for winter and thinking about what clothes and stuff LO will need once it gets really cold. Do you use a footmuff with your stroller or just pile blankets on. The footmuff for our stroller is really expensive so I don't want to buy it unless its really necessary. What about for going in the car? Do you put LO in a snowsuit in the car seat? I heard it could be dangerous because the straps don't go tight enough. If you don't use a snowsuit how do you keep LO warm when in car seat? Any tips on good accessories to get for the winter? Thanks :flower:

    hi, if you put the LO in a snow suit and have loads of layers of blankets then she will be cosy enough also when its windy I put the raincover over too to block the wind out.

    In the carseat we had Ellie in a snowsuit and a blanket or 2 and then her wee cover that came with the carseat

    we had a fleecy liner we got with the pram and she was prem so we kept that in her carrycot bit of the pram for the whole winter xx

    in pushchair im going to do what above poster said.

    In the car seat, like you said wearing a snow suit is dangerous in the car because of straps. LO will have blankets on & then use the car heater, if she gets too hot turn heater off or remove blankets. X

    I have a lot of various thickness's of snow suits, and I use the footmuffs on my buggy although my stroller footmuff when zipped up covers my LO's head so she hasnt grown into that one!
    I strap my LO in the car seat wearing a snow suit.

    you can get super thin fluffy ones but they are just as warm as the thicker ones x

    In the car seat we will be using a kind of snowsuit that's made for carseats it looks kind of like a gro bag with the hole for the straps..

    Pushchair wise we will be using a pram so a nice snug snowsuit and a blanket

    I have a babyjogger too and really don't want to fork out that much for the foot muff. It does look cosy though!
