How to babywear in cold weather

So you babywear and love to. Maybe you use a Tula Baby Carrier or Beco, Boba or Onya and you love keeping your baby snuggled close and comfortable. Now the weather's getting colder and it's starting to put a damper on your babywearing style. Most babycarriers don't fit or feel comfortable when worn over your jacket plus that leaves baby out in the cold. Similarly it's not comfortable for baby to wear too big of a jacket while in the carrier which can also leave both you and your child feeling squished.

Babywearing jackets are a great solution and they come in a variety of styles. They're designed to be worn by the mama, over baby and the carrier and often provide access to baby without having to be completely taken off. Some feature unique wrap styles and others feature panels you can zip or un-zip. Front or back carry, there is a babywearing jacket for every babywearing style.
