It's winter! Babywearing Jackets? - Page 2

post #21 of 33

How are you finding the London cover? We own their lighter version, and love it due to the wind and water resistant outer and fleecy lining. Keeps my baby warm and protected. Love the detachable hood feature and the collar we can raise to shield from wind too. I can dress the way I normally would without having to invest in over-sized unflattering coats or jackets.

So far so good! I've actually only used it once, just yesterday to cut down our xmas tree. We live in Chicago but it hadn't been cold enough to use it until now. DD fell asleep right away & didn't seem bothered by it. It didn't cover her hands as well as I would have hoped. She's 4 months so this is her first winter. I don't remember a collar on mine... but the hood seemed to block the wind. Where exactly is the collar?

If you are in Chicago, the mommy's hug cover is perfect for you guys! It is tough to keep little hands inside especially when they always want to explore, reach out. As far as the collar, the snaps for the hood are positioned just around and below the collar.

What I like even more about this product is that we can also use it with a stroller and with a car seat, pretty much wherever a blanket is needed for added value if you know what I mean :)

I've been wearing my maternity coat and it's been great for front carrying.  If you still have yours, see how it works maybe before buying anything else?

I have a Mama Butterfly fleece, and it is wonderful! I wear it almost every day from fall through mid-spring. It's very warm, very soft, and still fits over my 18-month-old. I can't say enough wonderful things about this. Compared to others I've tried, it's also easy to get on and off. Baby loves it too. The part where his head comes out has snaps so it can be fairly snug and keep him warm, but lately he's gotten more squirmy, so I don't snap it, and he loves to pop his arms out and point at things!

I have a fleece with an elastic bottom from REI that works really well.

If I were to take walks outdoors or go to football games, etc., I'd need something more, but so far I have worn my newborn with arm warmers on me, hat on her, and a good warm scarf around my neck and wrapped around her. Jackets make my ring, pouch, and wrap slings bunch up at the shoulders, so i've just given up on that. Sometimes I'll wrap a blanket around dd on the outside of the sling and even tuck it in to be hands free.

There's also the M coat! http://themcoat.com/

I have an M Coat and a Suse's Kinder Deluxe coat (I actually sell the Suse's coats--the only retailer on the west coast of Canada!). I like the Suse's better. I live in a wet climate, though. I think the M Coat would be better in somewhere snowy--it doesn't hold up well to rain. And my 1 year old is getting too big for the insert in the M Coat, and also for being worn on my front for long walks (phew!! she's 30 pounds). The Suse's Kinder lets me put her on my back and then the coat over top--and I can even do it without any help (though help does make it easier).

 

The way I see it a $200 Kinder Coat is still less than what you'd pay (here, at least) for a comparable sport coat (ie. Columbia jacket) that has the fleece/shell separateable. I think it's a good investment.
