The Best Puddle Suits

Becky Sappor

I don’t know how it is where you live but where I live it is down right miserable. We seem to be stuck in a permanent wafting of drizzly residue. It’s not even rain, the air is just… Wet! But we don’t let that put us off going out and getting some fresh air. So I figured this might be a good time to chat to you about the best puddle suits currently on the market.

Tayo has recently been rolling around the muddy garden in his big bro’s hand-me-downs. We have two types of suits; one is more of what I would call a snow suit; thick, padded, warm and the other is what I would call a splash or puddle suit; much thinner but equally as water resistant. He’s slowly outgrowing the snow suit so more often I have been using the splash suit and in all honesty I think he seems much more comfortable in it and less ‘michelin man’ like. I just make sure he has several normal layers on underneath to ensure he’s warm enough.

I’ve rounded up some of my faves for you of both types and the best news… most of them are still in sales! Go bag one whilst you can and save yourself ALL the washing!

Plain Suits

Some of us aren’t big fans of overly patterned stuff for our kids and luckily there are quite a few plain suits out there. I start with two suits in quite muted tones. The first is from Bon Tot and is a reflective all in one by Gosoaky. It is padded for a bit of extra warmth but it also has a reflective dot pattern on it so that with these early dark nights they will be as safe as possible. The second is from H&M. It has a detachable hood and an adjustable waist. It also has the foot stirrups so you can secure it under your little ones shoes. This one also has some reflective detailing. It’s quickly running out of stock (but if your little one is a young, confident walker you might be in luck!) but I wanted to include it because it looks so good and fit for function.

Just because you might want plain doesn’t mean you don’t want a pop of colour does it? If that’s the case there are lots of lovely brightly coloured numbers. If you’re a fan of pink you can’t go wrong with this cat face puddle suit from Asda with it’s extremely reasonable price and cute design to boot. On my hunt for suits I came across separates which is something I’d never really considered before and frankly, first time round I didn’t even know they existed. So I wanted to include them so that in case you didn’t know they were an option, now you do 🙂 These pink trousers are epic… They also come in black too for a tamer look.

How about these cute animal theme inspired suits from Little Trekkers. I love the hippo one… You don’t see so many hippos in fashion these days 🙂

Patterned Suits

ALL the prints! There are so many gorgeous prints on the high street these days but here’s a round up of some of my fave patterned suits.

How fresh are these gorgeous blue suits. This owl print suit from Frugi comes with the foot stirrups to make sure they stay in place and I love the contrast of the yellows and pinks against the blue. And fans of the cutesy kitsch look or lovers of Kath Kidston will really enjoy this cute poppy print blue suit from Mothercare.

Dinosaurs are still a win in our household as I know they are in many of yours and I love this dino print suit by Hatley available at Alex and Alexa. And then for extreme practicality you could go for this ‘pack away’ puddle suit from JoJo Maman Bebe. It packs away in to it’s own internal bag and comes in loads of really lovely prints from boats to flowers and more dinosaurs.

I know my niece would LOVE this unicorn print suit from Next. The furry hood is right up her street. And I think that’s part of the appeal of this particular suit, it looks really cosy and is fleece lined for extra warmth. And I know I know… I’ve already shared a dino suit and a unicorn suit but, what about BOTH?! Yes! It comes from Next too. That minty green colour is perfect.

And my final two? Are absolutely lush. The first is this from Tiny Cottons (let’s not even talk about their collab with Puma… SO good!). The hood is detachable, has the reflective strips and the foot stirrups. And finally, my fave of the whole bunch. This little beauty from Muddy Puddles (and is in the SALE!). It has a removable inner fleece suit and an adjustable hood to make sure your little one keeps as dry and warm as possible. Now if only it came in adult size too!

So there’s my roundup! Are you looking for a splash suit for your little one or can you recommend any to our lovely readers?

Becky loves her boys, her pooch and designing. She also loves chocolate digestives, probably a bit too much.

Becky!!! Two words. Mountain. Warehouse. I got a fleece lined puddlesuit for the princely sum of £2.50 recently. Oh yeah! This was exceptional but they usually have great bargains.

I like puddlesuits for little ones but S is nearly 3 and since being out of nappies removing her from a puddlesuit while she screams I neeeed a wee is an enterprise fraught with danger and terror. So, waterproof trousers. No braces, just plain black so they go with her coat selection- amazing. I think ours are Trespass.

Oooohh thanks for the recommendation Lucy! I think the trousers are a great shout too x

For me it’s Hatley all the way. Hold out for a sale and they’re quite reasonably priced. We got one from Amazon and then one from a little independent shop, both with 40-50% off. The quality is amazing and the prints are so fun! You can see my little in hers on my (not very good) insta (frostyallyear).

I loved loads of the Hatley ones I found on my search Mel. They’re lovely aren’t they. I’d not thought about looking on Amazon! Great tip x

You must be inside my head (again!) I bought a puddle suit just yesterday from Sainsburys. It’s fleece lined so nice and cosy and only £16… https://tuclothing.sainsburys.co.uk/p/Navy-Fleece-Lined-Puddle-Suit-%289-months-6-years%29/132467622-Navy

I also picked up some thick, waterproof dungaree pants recently from Amazon, which are brilliant but ENORMOUS. E loves them though as she can happily run round the garden and play on her slide in the miserable January gloom.

Loving the round up! x

Karen you wouldn’t believe me if I told you that was a part of my initial list and I had to reluctantly chop it down! I thought it was so sweet and love the colour of the fleece. Glad she’s enjoying lots of time outside even in this ridiculously indecisive weather 🙂 x

Puddlesuits rule! Since Felix has been walking it’s an immediate outer wear option! Stops him getting dirty or wet and he’s even worn one on the beach in ‘summer’ (full disclosure it was a beach in Blackpool and it was super windy!) more as a windrproof later than a waterproof one!

Felix is 2 and in his 3rd puddlesuit (currently a really cute frugi one with fishes all over them) and also has warm waterproof dungarees ( gap primaloft) which were great over Christmas when it was flipping freezing!

I always look in the sales for puddlesuits and try to size up do they can bend and climb easily!

We’ve inadvertently scared people when the puddlesuit has been hung up in the kitchen to dry with his wellies still attached (looks quite like an actual toddler)

Oh my, I had a nightmare trying to find a puddlesuit for our boy. I started looking in October and ended up shelling out for a jojo one a month later. Everywhere I looked I either couldn’t find what I needed or what mostly happened was that it was in every size bar his! I lost count of how many I got outbid on, on ebay.

The jojo one is super thick and padded though, which doesn’t make it easy for walking around so I recently picked up a Trespass thin puddlesuit for £15 and it is perfect.
