Who says babywearing is only for summer? Do you shut your manduca away as soon as the first autumn storms arrive? There is no need to do so! As often, it all depends on the right clothes. And it depends on how many layers of clothes you and your baby are wearing. Here are some tips for you, when the weather becomes colder and wetter now:
- Tip 1:
Carry your baby below your coat (no matter if it is a normal coat or a babywearing jacket), because this way you benefit from your body heat. You may wrap big coats and babywearing jackets around you and your baby, so that both of you are wrapped up snugly.
- Tip 2:
Don’t dress your baby too warm if you are carrying her/him in a baby carrier such as the manduca. Why? First, the baby carrier itself is a layer of clothing and second, your body heat helps the baby to stay warm.
- Tip 3:
Make sure that your baby’s head and feet are always warm, because extremities cool down rapidly. So, don’t forget a warm cap and warm woolly socks or sheepskin shoes.
- Tip 4:
Please check the baby’s temperature. Just feel the back of the neck: if it is sweaty, it is already too warm for your baby.
- Tip 5:
In case you think about buying a babywearing jacket, a coat with a removable babywearing panel would be best. You can wear such a coat not only when carrying your baby, but also when you are beyond the babywearing stage.
