Re: Carrier cover for winter:
have you thought about getting a warmer babywearing coat? not to completely go off on a tangent (sorry) but it seems like that would be a lot easier than having you in a coat, baby in a coat, a carrier over that, and then ANOTHER cover over that. i also live in chicago and i have a kindercoat. it's awesome, and warm enough even for our cold winters. with stuff like that, i just have baby dressed warmly, but normal, have my carrier on under the coat, put her in, zip up and go. i got a really good deal on one at thebabywearer.com fsot.
