Waterproof clothing will ensure they keep dry eliminating the risk of them getting the shivers or that terrible tickly cough.

When buying children’s waterproof clothing, checking if the garment is made for layering underneath is essential. If there is room to fit other layers underneath it’s a keeper as it allows your child to stay super warm but also be able to move comfortably and flexibly.
Having a hood is a must as we lose 40-45% body heat through our head. Yep, you read that correctly! Zips are better than buttons as they’re quick and easy.
