When DS was a little guy, we lived in a climate that was mostly snow in the winter. If it did rain, it wasn't an all day occurrence. It would dump for a few hours and then you'd have clear skies for a while. Basically, as long as we bundled up, I could get out for a walk every day. This was pretty crucial to my sanity, as DS very much was a baby who needed to be worn all. the. time.
My new sweet little DD is a much more agreeable lady, but she still demands to be worn a lot. This wouldn't really be much of an issue except that I'm now living in a climate where it rains a lot. If it stops raining, there's no telling when it might start up again. And I don't know how to get the heck out of my house! Before the birth of this second LO, getting out for a walk in the rain wasn't an issue. We have a rain shield for the BOB, so DS is covered, and I just put on some water-proof hiking shoes and my rain shell and I'm good. But when I'm strapping a LO to my front as well, well, how do I keep her dry without smothering her? I can't put her all the way under my shell (it isn't big enough anyway). When she's awake she doesn't particularly like having the sleeping hood up, and even if it is up it's cotton -- it gets wet pretty darn quick. I've tried a big umbrella, but managing that plus the stroller is... Well, umbrellas kind of suck anyway.
I *need* to go for a walk every day. DS needs to get out of the house every day. But I'm in the Pacific NW... It's going to rain every day here from now until April. Any suggestions ladies?
