Getting your toddler to put on their jacket
My son used to hate wearing a jacket and he sometimes still does. A few things have worked for us in getting him to wear a jacket without a tantrum or meltdown.
- Catch them off guard. While they are playing or doing sometimes, just start putting their jacket on. My son gets caught off guard and just puts it on.
- Give them the option to go and pick out their jacket. The secret here is to only have weather appropriate jackets available for them.
- Make putting a jacket on fun. See who can put their jacket on faster, you or them. Have them do a dance while putting it on. Show them a new way to put it on.
- Get a thinner jacket! We got a Uniqlo jacket when it was on sale and my son loves it. It’s warm and thin and he doesn’t mind putting it on.
