I was looking for winter babywearing coat for myself, and was surprised when I didn't find one. All that I have found is an M Coat from Canada for like $400. Would you be interested in russian babywearing coat? I'm thinking about opening a small online store of babywearing coats and nursing clothing from Russia for reasonable price

That's a great coat! I have a baby wearing coat but my son really disliked the 'hole' his head was supposed to fit through. This coat looks like it has a hood instead, very nice.

I had seen these baby wearing coats with my first child, but didn't want to spend so much money....there are also so beautiful Inuit baby wearing coats.  I thought and thought and thought about how to keep her warm when we were out hiking, especially on cold, windy days.  Finally, I came up with a solution, and one that is working so well with my second child, now.  I bought a windproof fleece jacket, size extra large.  Luckily, we live near a patagonia outlet store and I was able to find one for $15.  I simply cut a line in the back of the jacket at the height of my LO's neck.  Now, I put my babe on my back (I use an Ergo) and put the windproof fleece over both of us.  His head easily pokes through the cut and he stays toasty warm, including hands and feet, without many layers of clothing!!  The only downside is that some hats get knocked off when the coat goes on, and I have to walk the neighborhood to find someone to help put his hat on for me!

I like it, and might be interested. I've been doing wacky stuff with blankets.
