Buckle Me Baby Coat vs. London Fog Baby Girls Puffer Jacket
It’s time again! Time to find your child’s winter jacket, that is.
For every parent, winter coat shopping can be frustrating, especially when trying to fit an ever-growing child into a size and style they’ll like AND feel comfortable in.
There’s also the task of comparing and contrasting to make sure that the jacket meets all of your child’s needs and it’ll be appropriate for the weather.
At the same time, finding our child’s winter coat reminds us to take a breath. Our kids will only be young once, and the coats we choose for them will feature prominently in the memories, photos and videos that make up their childhood.
But, let’s be honest, finding the perfect jacket is only half the battle. Once it’s found, there’s the daily chore of bundling them into the coat, stuffing them into their carseat and going about your daily errands. Cue the tantrum! Cue the meltdown!
And can we blame them? Bulky winter coats aren’t really meant for car seats. They’re big and bulky and they cause kids to fidget in their seat and attempt a Harry Houdini-esque escape from underneath their harness.
For us parents, the pressure is on.
Today, we’re here to help. In this article we’ll do most of the work for you, comparing two cute jackets, side by side. We’ll compare the London Fog baby girls puffer jacket with the Buckle Me Baby Coat, which was designed specifically for use with your child’s car seat.
First up is the London Fog puffer jacket for baby girls, which is, pretty much, a regular, classic puffer-style jacket.
London Fog Puffer Jacket
It's warm, made of 100% polyester and lined in fleece. It also has a faux fur lined hood and also comes with a little fleece hat that matches the inner lining of the jacket. It’s made for little girls, aged 12-months to 24-months.
The London Fog puffer jacket for baby girls is cute. It’s warm. But it’s also puffy! And, we both know that 10-minutes into any ride your child will realize they’re uncomfortable, and they’ll either A) beg you to take the coat off B) attempt to take it off themselves or, even worse, C) attempt to elicit siblings in a bid to take it off.
Is your child an A child, B child or C child? Mine are mostly “C” children.
Now, let’s compare that with the Buckle Me Baby Coat.
The Buckle Me Baby Coat was created as a safer alternative to big, puffy winter jackets.
These coats are made for kids from 6-months to 10-years, and have a chunky rib knit collar, magnetic removable hood, and thick, not bulky, sherpa lining with a fleece back that will leave your child feeling cozy and warm no matter the weather.
The Buckle Me Baby Coat comes in a bunch of colors and our limited edition coats have a cute inner lining featuring forest animals, milk and cookies or spaceships.
What sets the Buckle Me Baby Coat apart from other jackets? Our safety features are what make the product really special. Car seat experts don’t ever recommend the use of bulky winter coats. Why? Because puffy winter coats make your child fidget and feel uncomfortable, which can lead to driver distraction. The Buckle Me Baby Coat is crash tested and was designed as a safer alternative to traditional winter jackets. Our coat is comfortable for your child and eliminates the fidgetiness that comes with heavy coat-wearing.
