n this climate of ours, it's always going to rain, so how do we protect babies from getting wet - and cold? For our youngest babies, a good cover for the pushchair is vital. Many come with a 'free' cover, but all too often price is a major consideration and this has an effect on quality. A raincover has to stand up to a lot - being squashed up out of the way, then pulled and stretched to fit. Sometimes they are left on the parcel shelf in cars on a hot day - and parents wonder why they've distorted! Retailers need a good source of quality covers.

Once children are older, then they want to go out and play - even when it's raining. Splashing in puddles is one of my favourite pastimes! But being cold and wet is no fun, so again, having the right tool for the job is paramount! There's a good choice of rainwear for kids out there!
