Iris wearing her 0-3 month bunting, at five-months-old. It fits just about perfectly, but not for much longer. She's in the 60th-ish percentile for size and weight, so she's slightly-bigger-than-average, which gives you an idea of the sizing.

- Fit: Runs large
I know my kids are on the small side. After all, this is my third kid, and while I've noticed that each of them is slightly bigger than the last, none of them can be considered "average". But, last December when it was -2 degrees in Salt Lake City, and baby Iris was on the way, I knew that I had to buy something to keep that little bundle of joy warm during the dog days of a Utah winter. So, I bought the Passion Pink bunting in the 0-3 month size, thinking that it would get her through the first few months of life. Well, I was wrong. This sucker is huuuge. At birth, Iris weighed in at 7lbs 1oz, and was 21" long, so not big by any stretch, but certainly not teeny-tiny, either. When we put her into the bunting, and it absolutely dwarfed her. Now that she's 2 months-old it almost, kinda, but not really fits her. I figure by the time she's 4 or 5 months-old, it will finally fit her well, but by then it will summer, and we won't need it.
All that being said, the quality is really nice, and it looks like it would last for a long time. I picked this one over some less expensive buntings because I like that the legs zip together--maybe we can use it as a baby sleeping bag for some late-spring camping--and the fold-over mittens would keep her little hands warm. If you've ever tried to keep mittens on an infant, you'll know that it's nearly impossible, you NEED the fold-over mitten sleeves.
My daughter has been very happy in this even when outside in really cold conditions. It's also really versatile with the flip down sleeve ends and the way you can convert the bottom into a sac. All in all it was well worth the money.

Cold weather requires anti cold gear, just North Face it!! like my LadyBug.
Are the feet open (so boots would be worn)...
Are the feet open (so boots would be worn) or closed (so feet stay inside) on this snow suit?
Hey there, the feet are closed... the legs can be zipped together to make a bag/bunting...
My daughter grew more than expected. She is 8 months and 12 months bunting is getting a little short. I'm going to make some alteration to open the feet so she can wear boots.
