Babywearing in Winter: Top Tips to Keep Yourself and Baby Warm

Wearing your baby in a sling, wrap or baby carrier can be a lifesaver on many days. It’s an easy way to keep your little one close, safe and content while going about your daily tasks. During the summer babywearing opens up an entirely new set of possibilities for you and your family. With your child securely strapped to your chest or back, you are not dependent on buggy-friendly paths and facilities. Instead, you are free to explore the world with your children and go wherever your feet may take you. 

When the days get shorter and the temperatures drop many parents refrain from putting their kids in a carrier or wrap. The reason is almost always the same: What to wear on those chilly autumn and winter days out? Between puffy jackets, scarves, hats, and woolly jumpers there is a lot going on even without adding a baby carrier into the mix. However, babywearing is just as possible on cold days as it is in the summer sunshine!

With our top tips on babywearing in the winter, you will rock your sling during the coming cold season!
