All last week was frigid. Like negative upper teens Celsius. Which, if you’re in the US and totally clueless about what that means, like I was before moving to the Great White North, that’s hovering right around 0°F. In other words, too cold to go outside with baby girl. So when yesterday hit a high of -6°, we headed outside for the first time in days to run a few errands.
I have two winter babywearing options: the Moby wrap or the Ergo. Yesterday, I wore the Moby because part of our plans included getting baby girl in and out of the car. I can’t do that with the Ergo because in order to get her out, I have to take off my coat. Not fun, even when it is relatively balmy, compared to last week. I also dressed her in her wool coat, leg warmers, and mittens because of the temperature and the fact that she’d be in and out of the wrap and our nice, warm, $15 thrift-store coat.
Today was even warmer at at toasty -2°. We weren’t using the car at all, so I put baby girl in her fuzzy-lined hoodie and into the Ergo. I was happy to see two other babywearing mamas out today on our walk to the natural foods store. (I swear, I’m not nearly as crunchy as I sound in that sentence.)
Any other winter babywearing mamas out there? What are your WBW tips?
