 Looking for a Winter Coat in February...ugh.

DD is currently wearing a coat that she is quickly growing out of. She has a jacket that goes with her snowsuit but that won't work in her car seat and I've looked everywhere I can think of online and I can't find one for her that will fit, be warm enough and work in her car seat. Any suggestions? Maybe I missed an online store or something.

I got DS last coat from Gap online (but it was on clearance).

Please Mum had nothing. Gap had 1 that I didn't totally love but I might order it anyway. I also ordered 1 from Sears but I'm thinking its not going to be warm enough. Silly me, I should have bought one weeks (or months ago) when I knew this one wouldn't work for the whole winter.

Do you have any consignment stores near you? I have found the best fitting (not too puffy for the car seat) jackets for DS there.

I just got one for DS at Walmart for $9 on clearance! It's not fancy but works fine for the car.

Thanks TeacherAnge. There isn't a good children's consignment store around here.

Emmy - I'll check Walmart but I'm not hopeful. I found a frostfree one on Old Navy but I think it might be too puffy for the car.

I'm going to check Winners today and maybe The Bay and hopefully find one that works. Right now her coat is a wool peacoat from Old Navy thats perfect but they don't have any left online and we live 5 hrs from the closest ON.

I was going to suggest Old Navy online - lots of great deals on there right now too.

Try the Bay or Sears if you have them. I saw tons of coats at the Bay last week though I'm in TO.
