Hi everyone! FTM from D14, and I need some help with baby-wearing logistics. I'm from Chicago, which you may be aware is a bit chilly this time of year I'd love to be able to grab baby for a quick shopping run without having to lug his carseat into the store. I just can't figure out the logistics of keeping the baby & myself warm while I try and get him into the carrier, in a parking lot, while its freezing cold outside.
All I can picture is me, outside without my coat, trying to get baby out of his coat and into the carrier, and then a frigid walk from the parking lot into the store. Or I could just carry the baby in sans carrier, but once we're in the store I would need a spot to set the baby down for a second while I try and get him out of his coat and the carrier on (which wouldn't work either).
We have a LilleBaby carrier, so its pretty easy to use, but I do still fumble with it a bit, so the whole process may take me a few minutes.
Any tips or advice? I can't be cooped up in the house until spring. Baby is 1 month today!
