I wear DD in a mei tei and put my maternity coat on over top of us both. I can do it up most of the way and we keep each other pretty snug, so I'm careful not to overdress her. I will put a hat on her if it's really chilly though. We haven't had very cold weather yet, so I'm hoping this continues to work once it starts to get even cooler.

When my oldest was little I'd put her in a tummy to tummy or kangaroo carry in a fleece pouch and just wear my regular (LL Bean pea) coat open.

I bought a minkee lined mei tai not too long ago and have been eagerly waiting to use it with my younger DD . . . but it has been in the 70s. And she has decided she hates back carries. And I just plain don't do front carries with 36lb children.

So I might just use it with my older 32lb 4 y.o. daughter, lol, who still loves back carries. You just can't make this stuff up.
