April showers bring May flowers, right? Well, we rounded up our favorite April showers style picks for mama and baby. You don’t have to stay inside on rainy days, as long as you’re prepared, have fun jumping in the puddles with your little one!

The soft cotton outer is treated with a water-resistant coating to keep you and your bump warm and dry whatever the weather. After baby is born, simply zip on the kangaroo panel at the front to fit easily over your baby sling or front carrier. Also lined in soft faux-fur, the baby wearing insert features a section for baby’s feet, and can be worn open or zipped all the way up to protect baby from the elements.
Color Changing Raincoat, Holly and Beau: This toddler raincoat is not only adorable (they have a variety of ridiculously cute designs), but get this – it changes color when it’s wet! This pack away kids raincoat magically changes color when it comes into contact with water, returning to the original color once dry. This exciting process is repeated each time. It provides great lightweight protection against the elements and can be neatly stowed away in a convenient bag attached to the back of the coat.
