What's the safety risk of having the carrier over the mother's coat?
Can you provide some sources for that? It is my understanding that, while the virus can be found in saliva, transmission has only ever been documented through bites.  
I always just put the baby in a snowsuit in the sling over my own coat.
2 padded ring slings (always been my favorite, even with older children, maybe I'm just weird) 1 woven wrap (awesome but only used when baby doesn't need to get in and out a lot) 1 stretchy wrap (only for tiny newborns) 1 mesh pouch (great for summer and so tiny it can fit in a small purse so I used it quite a bit when my older child wanted to walk most of the time) 1 ergo (not my favorite but much faster to put on than a wrap so a good alternative when running...

I agree with the tip of the iceberg comment. Now would be the time to have a serious conversation about his views of gender roles and such things. I have known many women who just assumed their guy was not like the rest of his family and then were surprised when he turned into a chauvinistic jerk after they moved in together.
