    Absolutely agree! Blankets just get kicked off so I always use the plastic rain cover. It acts as a wind breaker. I take my baby out in the pram nearly every morning in the delightfully frosty Melbourne!

    I agree a rain cover is great as it protects from chilly winds. In Melbourne at the moment 1yo DS gets 2 pairs of thick socks, mittens on cold days, singlet, long sleeve tee, puffy parka, fleece track pants, acrylic blanket over legs, pram boot cover and beanie that covers ears. I only pull the rain cover over if we're walking into the wind as he likes the fresh air and seeing everything.

    If you're going to the south in NZ it will be colder than here so would recommend leggings under the track pants and a cotton jumper under the parka as well.

    You possibly want to invest in a snow suit when you get there (if bub is somewhat mobile) as they'll get frustrated if they have to be in the pram all the time just to stay warm.

    I love polar fleece. We took a 17 month old to the UK and I ended up buying jumpers a size larger so I could pull the sleeves over toddler hands since she kept pulling the mittens off.

    Plus beanies with ear flaps that fasten under the chin so they have a hope of staying on. If the hat isn't tied down my kids always pull them off.
