Baby pram suits an absolute essential. They're practical and adorable and come in an array of styles, from fleece to puffer styles and even chunky knits. Pram suits are a must when journeying outdoors in the colder months, especially when out for walks. They keep baby snug and warm without the need for layers upon layers of blankets. They're also much safer and more reliable than warm baby blankets, which annoyingly never seem to stay in place with a wriggling baby.
You may be wondering whether your baby needs a pramsuit or not ‘Isn’t a blanket and a hat acceptable, instead of a pramsuit?’ Well, pramsuits are a great way to keep your baby snuggled up cosily - and an alternative to clothing and blankets. They sheild your babys arms and legs, with space for movement - keeping your baby warm in windy and cold weather, but also comfortable whilst outdoors in the buggy.

They also tend to be preferred for particularly wriggly babies, where blankets never seem to stay put, and end uo findind itds way on the floor (with a passer byer shouting "excuse me your baby's blanket'.
Also remember that, as you walk, your body temperature will increase, but babies will not be moving enough to regulate their body temperature. That's why pramsuits are an excellent option for keeping them warm.

What is a pram suit?
Traditionally, pram suits are all-in-one jumpsuit-style coats that keep the cold at bay and protect your baby from head to toe. They're designed for outdoor use as they are often way too chunky to be worn inside. A good pram suit should eliminate the need for a thick blanket and a thin layer underneath, perhaps a cotton onesie or pyjama-style lounge set should be enough.
Let's not forget how much easier a pram suit makes dressing your little one. It's got it all: a snug hood, mitts, and enclosed feet. An easy all-in-one outfit, so you can spend less time faffing with trousers, jumpers, and socks and more time outdoors seeing the world!
Get outdoors without worrying about your little one's comfort with an all-in-one pram suit. Scroll down to see our round-up of the warmest baby pram suits to add to your little one's wardrobe.
What should babies wear in a pram during winter?
If you're heading out on a chilly winter's day, you'll want to make sure your baby is wearing plenty of layers so they don't get cold. You'll want to consider thermal layers such as vests, tops and leggings and outerwear such as hats, mittens, snow boots and, of course, one of our baby pram suit top picks.
Of course, if you're going to be popping into cafés or shops while you're out and about, make sure you remove some of your little one's layers when they're indoors. They may be nice and toasty while they're outside, but they could soon overheat with all those layers on.
What is the difference between a pram suit and a snowsuit?
A pram suit and a snowsuit are very similar to each other, with just subtle differences between the two. Pram suits are usually crafted in a fleece material and are used whilst out and about. Snowsuits are like pram suits but are made with thicker, waterproof fabric and used in notably colder weather conditions like snow and ice or freezing weather.
