Simple and often over looked even the smallest umbrella can cover you both and save you getting soaked.
We would recommend getting a larger umbrella and if you can a see-through one is great so your little person can look about while you walk!
A helmet umbrella is perfect as it has a longer back and covers a baby completely whether on the front or back and you don’t have to fight it in the wind either!
Putting your child in a puddle suit with the hood up can be a quick and successful way to keep a child dry during light showers.
It’s worth making sure that there is plenty of growing room in the suit, so that when they are in the M position the suit doesn’t cause any discomfort or tightness in the knee-pits.
A Muddy Puddles 3 in 1 scamp suit is perfect and starts from 0-6 up to 2-3 years.
