for the kids, i start with a tshirt, then thermal underwear, then a sweater, preferably turtle neck, a scarf then with the down feather jacket. winter socks, snow boots and gloves complete the outfit everytime we go outdoors. looked huge and bulky but feeling warm is most important. when we were indoors, just remove the jacket.
i just realized i forgot to let the kids wear pants!
if want to ski, needed those waterproof, windproof pants. if not, just thick jeans will do. for the colder nights, i added a pair of stockings too.
