A funky, warm and long-lasting coat is one of the most essential buys for parents of babies heading into the colder months.

Keep your baby toasty and warm this winter with a fluffy or fur lined jacket and dress them up ready for the rain with our selection of waterproof coats. With these clothing products suitable for use from a newborn age, these mini jackets are carefully designed to ensure they will keep the tiniest bodies warm.

Whether your kids like to adorn funky and vibrant designs when playing outdoors, or if you generally go for darker, more subtle colours to hide mud stains, there's plenty of suitable choice in our recommendations. Please note that babies, as a rule of thumb, should not wear coats when travelling in a car seat, as this can result in the car seat straps being too loose to adequately protect baby if needed.

Clothes and shoe shopping for the winter is inevitable, and we've compiled a list of our top options to make that bit easier for you. For more inspiration take a look at our round-up of the best baby tracksuits to wear this winter, or the best kids' wellies for those who love jumping in muddy puddles.
