baby wearers - what do you do in the winter?
 
Granted, I live in central CA and it doesn't snow, but its cooler than where I used to live in the winter. Do you just wear a heavy sweater and wear your sl ing over that? Do you get a bigger sling?

I have a MT and I can wear a sweater and still wear it comfortably. I also have a Storch on its way which I think I could wear w/ a l/s or something. If it was a ring sling or pocket it might cause a problem for fit.

Here is me and DD#1 at Silver Dollar City 3 yrs ago. It worked out great! It started snowing a little so I covered her face with my scarf. The parents of crying stroller babies were quite envious!

Where are you? I'd go to Old Navy and get a fleece jacket. That would probably be enough almost anywhere (aside from the mountains, where it snows) and they're light enough to easy wear baby over. On the rare occasions that I wear something that I can't wear a carrier over, I sling them under my jacket. There are also special ponchos you can buy (they'd probably be really easy to make too) that have a hole in the back below the neck and one in front too for wearing over a baby in a carrier.

Cute picture! :)

I'm in MOnterey, CA. It gets chilly but doesn't snow or anything. I do have a fleece jacket. My Mom is going to try to make some slings from a ring sling pattern I found, so I'll ask her to make one really long, so I can adjust the size over a jacket or sweater.

thanks!

I'm in Cali to and I have a London Fog jacket that stretches open enough to fit both of us.

I live in Northern WV. When I'm going to be outside, I usually put him in a Mei tai and then zip my coat over him. I don't know if you can tell in this pic. It was taken last year when he was just born.

I probably have a sweatshirt on, then the sling, then my coat.

Last winter I just wore one of dh's coats over top of the sling. Worked great when she was tiny and was so cozy for her! Not very fashionable, but it worked!
