Best toddler mittens
In my opinion these are the best toddler mittens. Firstly they are waterproof, which is of course a must because the first thing your toddler is going to do is pick up some snow or mud and if their mittens aren't waterproof they will get wet quickly. Secondly they must be warm and these mittens are snug and warm. Thirdly mittens need to stay on and with those long sleeves, these mittens are great at staying on little hands.

Toddler winter safety tips
Of course you as all parents want to make sure that your toddler stays safe. The winter months offer a number of safety challenges. Staying inside is no answer, you should both get outside and enjoy yourselves.
- Sporting Injuries When it comes to toddlers and winter sports, they are going to need adult supervision. Make sure that your toddler is wearing the proper protective gear, especially when they get on a sled.
- Hypothermia and frostbite Toddlers aren't as good at regulating their body temperature as adults are. Because of their small size they lose body heat much quicker in very cold conditions. Adequately dress your toddler to protect them from winter cold in layers. Coats, hats, scarves, mittens and waterproof boots will help keep your toddler warm. If your toddler gets wet, make sure that wet clothes and mittens are quickly exchanged for dry ones. It is wise to put a limit on how long you allow your toddler to stay out, in one go, before you get them inside and warm.
- Falls Toddlers are still mastering walking and are prone to falling, even on the best of surfaces. On the other hand they are light and tend to take falling better than adults. Dress your toddler in shoes with non-skid soles to help them stay upright.
- Car Safety Winter driving can be especially hazardous, drive slowly on slippery roads. It is best to be prepared for any emergency. Strap your toddler down securely in a baby seat before taking to the road. Keep a winter safety kit in the trunk of your car. Don't leave your toddler alone in the car for any length of time. With each trip be sure to take enough water.
