I will say that now that it's colder, I'm looking for more indoor destinations for us. In the summer we took lots of long walks just for the sake of being outside. Now I'm more likely to find a destination - even just the library or the local bookstore or a friend's house - and walk there, then let DD out to play around, rather than spend tons of time outside when it's freezing. I do like giving her a change of scene from our apartment every day, though.

Proud Gestational Surrogate to N (15/01/15)
I dress the baby warmly (onsie, fleece sleeper) and then put him in a snowsuit. I wear him in the babyhawk and wrap my jacket around him. He stays very toasty.

Thankfully the weather has been relatively mild - no frigid days as of yet. I am in Toronto so warmer than Montreal (and maybe even Chicago!)
I have no issues taking babe out up to -15C (or I think that might be really close to OF but not sure) taking into account the wind factor as well. Beyond that, I might call my neighbour to walk my dc to school (and I take her little one).
It makes me feel so much better to get out everyday - a bit of excercise, fresh air and a routine of sorts. I love it.
Get out there!
We would bundle up the babies in the strollers and use blankets and I use to wear the little ones under my coat if it was really cold (we usually only had one or so under 6 mons) They were fine. Sometimes my Toddlers would complain in the playground when it was cold and then I would just shorten the outside time.
When my grandma's children were babes she used to wrap them up and put them in a carriage outside to sleep (by themselves) to acclimatize them to the weather from the time they were a few weeks old My poor mom was born in January : But she survived, thankfully

DD buses with her dad twice a week (this involves a 15 minute walk) - and so far the coldest they've done is -20C (-5F). So I don't think that's to cold. She has to be dressed for it.
Right now he also takes her for a 10 minute walk to put her for a nap on those days too - so sometimes she gets 2 walks at that temp.
It really depends what your comfort level is. I'm generally cold, but I love beign outside, and if I stayed inside simply because it was cold, egh, I'd be unbearable, and no one would ever go out. Cold is relative. Forty degrees is a heatwave here, this time of year. When it was that warm a few weeks ago I saw at least two people wearing shorts. Not me, but I didn't wear my long underwear and only had a light jacket on.

it was 35 here today and it felt like spring! we went on a long walk around town. that said dd's skin gets raw if it's below say 10 degrees. i don't walk every day of the winter but i do try to get her out of the house. we have one of those 'bundle me's which works great getting her around to grocery shopping w/out making her look like that kid in a christmas story! if we're walking she's usually in a snow suit w/ hat and mittens in my sling w/ a blanket by her face.
