Iso­bel Roberts, 21, mum to Olivia Rose, two, and Au­rora, 20 months, says, ‘Start off by point­ing out other chil­dren wear­ing hats, scarves and gloves, and praise them for be­ing so well-be­haved. Go to the li­brary and find books that in­clude il­lus­tra­tions of chil­dren wear­ing win­ter clothes, or point this out dur­ing a TV pro­gramme.’ Jas­mine New­bury, 25, mum to Tommy, nine, and Lu­ci­aLily, 14 months, says, ‘I’ve found lon­glength gloves are harder for lit­tle ones to get off, es­pe­cially if you pull them up and layer over with a coat. An­other good al­ter­na­tive is a coat with turnover cuffs. Some kids pre­fer hoods to hats, or you could try some fun and funky ear muffs.’

Michelle Hughes, 30, mum to Jes­sica, six, Lu­cas, nine, and Au­tumn,

two, says, ‘Chil­dren love to copy, so make sure you al­ways wrap up your­self be­fore go­ing out. Do the same with ev­ery­one in the fam­ily, in­clud­ing pets, ted­dies and dolls!’
