View Full Version : How do you keep DC's hands warm?

DD (20 months) refuses to keep anything on her hands when we go out to play in the snow. She's so small that basically everything I've found is still too big and comes off easily. Don't remember this problem with DS (4), though I suppose if he did take mittens off and get cold, I could just take him in, while now I have him wanting to stay outside and his sister wanting to go inside after two minutes!
I've looked online a bit, but I just can't tell if a $25 pair of mittens on whatever website are going to work any better than the $12 pair from Target that don't work... What have you found actually stays on your DC?

I have used socks and booties. I put on the socks first, then I put on booties over them (the booties are scooties, which have a snap closure).

I like the mittens from onestepahead that go over the sleeve of the coat. Kept the snow out and dd couldn't take them off.

LE has toddler mittens that are long and go up to about the elbow that are almost impossible for a kid to remove. I'm not sure if they'd be too big or not. DD wore them last year at 2 1/2.

I have a similar problem but my DD hates having anything on her hands :shake: . I tried to put the Children's Place mittens on her (they come in 12-18 month size which is good for my small 21 month old) but she screams to high heaven until I take them off. She barely tolerates the hat on, sigh. We just got more snow and I want to go out and play with it a little but am anticipating fits over mittens already! (It's not a problem while being in a stroller, she sticks her hands under blanket)

My DD was the same way at that age, but she's in daycare, and outside 2 hours a day. So, they suggested a great solution: I sewed a pair of mittens onto the arms of a zippered sweatshirt. Then, we just put on the sweatshirt before putting on her jacket. NO WAY to get those mittens off!!
