How to Keep Warm While Babywearing
Winter weather will be here before you know it. But the mercury dropping doesn't mean we can't babywear!
Here are our best tips and tricks for staying comfortable and cozy when it's cold outside.
Consider your carrier to be an extra layer for baby (or mulitiple layers, for multi-layer passes)
Dress baby in a thin, warm layers. Puffy or slick coats can slide and make it harder to get a good fit
Consider a babywearing cover, coat, or sweatshirt to regulate temperature over you and baby. Babywearing covers, coats, and sweatshirts often have built in protection for your baby's head. This protects against the wind and weather.
Protect your baby's hands, head, and feet
Babywearing booties provide warmth and stay on better
Lots of thick layers can be uncomfortable for you and baby. Clothing for babywearing is made with extra room in the hips. This allows your child to sit more comfortably. This also prevents pant legs from riding up and exposing your little one's legs!
Footie pajamas and outfits may be adorable, but they aren't a good choice when babywearing. This is because of how fabric can bunch up at baby's hips. In addition to clothes with extra hip room, avoid clothes with built-in socks. Instead, do separate socks and booties.
