I am an experienced babywearer who has come across a totally new babywearing issue that I could really use your help with. For the first time in the 8 years that I have been wearing my babes I am finding winter babywearing impossible. In the past it's been uncomfortable but now both dh and I are finding that carrying our 20 month old on our backs or hips is seriously painful after just a short walk. I know that this is due to the extra bulk we are all wearing to protect us from the cold. In the past I've had huge fleece coats that I've worn over my baby and I but it just is too cold for fleece and I've got dd on my back most often as I have 2 older dds to help as well as a dog I'm walking on a leash.
We are using either a ring sling, stretchy fleece wrap or Baby Hawk. None are comfortable. I am really commited to wearing my babies and really don't want to have to buy a stroller or a new carrier to get us through these next few months. Do you have any suggestions? If you do please share them with me! I would so appreciate them!
