Nordic Walking with baby – get started in a supervised course
Front or back carry position?
The right outfit
Clothes for Nordic Walking – for you and your child
- • Transition periods in spring and fall:
Your baby wears a body suit, tights and an overall – depending on the climate you can put a cover over the baby carrier or sling. When it is too warm for a cover, BabyLegs can keep your baby’s arms and legs warm. A versatile babywearing jacket might be a huge advantage, as you may leave the jacket either open or wear it closed. And if this is still too warm, many babywearing jackets allow you to remove the sleeves (e.g. Two-Way Jacket)
- • Summer:
Now the baby also gets by without an extra layer of clothes. At times, a body suit might be sufficient. Again, you may cover your baby’s arms and legs with BabyLegs, either to add an extra layer of warmth when you are heading for the woods, or to protect your baby from the sun (with the BabyCool! BabyLegs offering UPF 50+ protection). BabyLegs are really very practical, as they are quick and easy to put on and take off.
- • Winter:
Even if the cold season does not stop you from walking, you will need more fabric for a comfortable babywearing climate. You can dress your baby warm as you usually do when being carried (pick an overall made of boiled wool or fleece, but not a ski suit) – and on top of that you can wear a babywearing jacket (such as the Two-Way jacket) or another wide, warm jacket. On the whole, your baby should be warmly dressed in winter when he/she is in a baby carrier.
- • Rainy days:
If you don’t mind walking in the rain and call it “walking on sunshine” whatever the weather is like, we recommend babywearing jackets that are both breathable and weatherproof (such as the All-Weather Jacket).
