Moby/other carriers & cold weather

So...I've been thinking about taking a walk to the store with LO in a Moby. It's pretty cold out (I live in Buffalo), and I would put her coat & hat on of course, but I'm wondering, since my coat will not exactly cover her, does anyone have any suggestions? Maybe a blanket over her? Help!

  • The Ergo has a sleeping hood that helps block the wind.

  • I took my DS to an outdoor Christmas event and just put him in the Moby in a fleece outfit and put his hat on. Then I just kind of held a thick blanket over him. Between your body heat and theirs, they stay pretty darn warm in those things!

  • If your baby and you don't both fit under your jacket in the Moby, dress baby as you would for cold weather if you had a stroller, and just put him in the Moby. It's not the most comfortable, but I've succesfully put DD in the Moby with a puffy jacket on. Keep in mind, the Moby also adds some more warmth! I'd look into one of those fleece snowsuits for babies- we bought one or DD at Old Navy, and I love it! It's not bulky, but oh so warm, and she can be wrapped easily in it :-)
  • I'm interested to see what other people do!  I take my LO out in the Moby every few days and I stick her in the Moby and then wear a maternity sweatshirt/jacket thing zipped or tied around her.  Then I wear the outer shell of my Columbia jacket because I can zip that (but not the whole jacket) around both of us.

  • I use a Mai Tai carrier. A bit more sturdy than Moby by my experience. The Mai Tai is a canvas material so it's thicker, and the straps are padded which makes it easier to bear the weight of LO. I normally dress him for cold weather, put him in the Mai Tai and then I put a blanket over and around him so just his little face sticks out. I wear my jacket unzipped because I generally end up becoming too hot between his body heat and mine.

  • It's obviously not as cold here as is Buffalo (is anywhere as cold as in Buffalo?) but when we go out and it is cold (40s/50s) I put him in his heavy fleece with hood and then make sure I have something that will button or zip around him - some of DH's fleece lined sweatshirts work perfectly for this.

    This is what I'd do too! Just dress them warm and cuddle up :)

    Us too. The body heat generated wearing the moby can get intense. I find myself shedding layers sometimes. But I'm in CA, so take that with a grain of salt.
