I am wondering what others do when bringing the baby to the kitchen with a cold floor.I cant back carry yet. I want to let her play in the kitchen though it is draftier than our carpeted room upstairs. I will put down a king size old wool blanket I found and go from there. Maybe try wearing more layers? It is the same size room as the bedroom so I think thats good while I work on the living room to expand floortime options.
What do others who are home alot do to keep the child in a warm comfortable space while you do housework?

Our home has cold wood floors and is quite drafty.  I had a baby that crawled during the Winter and it was a challenge to keep him warm.  I put on at least two shirts and a wool vest and a pilot cap.  He also wore socks and slipper socks.  I made him wool overalls in lieu of a soaker, too.  Nova Natural sells overalls that I modeled my homemade ones after.  The wool blanket idea sounds good, too.  My most recent baby was born in November and we're doing back carries.  Is there some particular concern that you have with back carries?
