These are great for babies. They are easy to put on and are fairly warm without getting the insert. They do come off though, unless you make them so tight you cut off the circulation, and my little one thinks it's an amazing game to try and get them off while in the car... I dont think I will want them once she starts to walk though as they are large and oval shape which I think would make it hard to walk. She also has trouble crawling with them on. Overall though, I think they are fantastic boots for Canada and are way less annoying than other baby winter boots I've tried!
