It's officially winter here in Oregon! Abra, J, anyone else... any suggestions for how to go out in the rain while wearing baby? I'm trying to think of creative ways to cover her up that don't involve an umbrella or buying a raincoat that's 5 sizes too big so it'll cover her. When I walk with her she's always in the Moby or her sling (usually the moby), with a hat on, but that's hardly waterproof. Any creative ideas?
I also don't go out in the pouring rain- not fun for anyone. As for a coat, though, I also wear dh's coat over the baby carrier, like Abra said. If you really want to go out, though, I think an umbrella is your best choice. Otherwise, perhaps you could fashion something out of one of those super cheap ponchos you can buy at the drugstore? You could cut ventilation for baby somehow, maybe? Only problem then is the nasty plastic... maybe let it air out for a few days before using it. Alternatively, if you have a stroller that baby can go in, you probably can buy a rain cover for it. I have one for my BOB jogging stroller that we call "the bubble."
