With winter in full swing, it’s time to pick from the best baby snowsuits on the market to make sure you’re little one is ready to hit the snow! Regardless of whether they will be running around making snowmen and going sledding or just taking in a winter wonderland from the stroller, and whether winter in your neck of the woods is mild or frozen-tundra cold, there’s a snowsuit for every situation. 

Before figuring out baby snowsuit costs and where to buy a baby snowsuit, it’s helpful to know what types of suits you can choose from when you’re trying to find the best baby snowsuits for your brood.

Types of baby snowsuits

Some similar details characterize most of the various snowsuit options, but there are definitely important differences as well. Here are the most common types:

  • Puffer: Like the name implies, these puffy suits contain a thick lining, often of down material, for extra insulation to keep baby toasty warm.
  • Waterproof: Keeping baby dry in snowy weather is super important. These snowsuits are made of materials that wick away moisture and promise powerful protection against wetness.
  • All-over: Think of a onesie, but made of snowsuit material. All-over snowsuits keep baby warm from head to toe and are great for smaller babies because they are easy to get on and off. 
  • Two-piece: These jacket-and-pant combo snowsuits are a great choice for versatility—you can wear each piece separately, or together as needed. Some two-piece snowsuits have overall-style pants which provide extra warmth as they prevent pants from slipping and keep cold air from sneaking in between the pants and jacket.
  • Fleece: Perfect for keeping baby cozy on chilly days, fleece snowsuits are soft and comfy, but not waterproof, so not recommended for actual snow play.

Here are our picks for the best baby snowsuits for 2022:
