Babywearing in winter time

Is babywearing safe in winter?

Many parents ask themselves: How to use baby slings and baby carriers when it gets cold, windy and rainy outside? Which option is better - a baby sling or a carrier? Is it safe to carry baby in woven wrap, ring sling or baby carrier in cold weather or in winter?

Of course it is! Wearing your baby in a sling in autumn and winter is completely safe, very comfortable and gives a lot of fun. As one Scandinavian saying goes, there is no bad weather, only bad clothes ;) All you need to do is take care of the right clothes for the child and the clothes for the parent :)

How to dress a baby to wear in a sling in winter?

The first layer is a romper/panties, then a jumper or blouse, soft socks. The important thing is to remember to dress your baby in loose, not tight things, without buttons, zips or other parts that pinch. If you wear your baby for a long period of time, he or she may become restless if, for example, a tight romper bag restricts movement or one of the buttons on a cute dress pinches his or her neck.

Many parents wonder if jumpsuit is ok when babywearing. It is ok, as long as it is a soft, fleece or woollen overalls so that nothing restricts movement but is pleasantly warm. On the feet, it is best to wear comfortable shoes/thick socks and a hat. Ready to go!

What is a babywearing cover?

In cold weather, especially in autumn or winter, it is best to throw on an extra fleece or softshsell cover after putting in the baby sling or baby carrier to further protect your little one from the cold. A babywearing cover does not take up much space, is easy to use and does not cost much.

What are the advantages of babywearing covers?

  • Protection from the weather - the fleece cover protects your baby from the cold, and the softshell cover - additionally from wind and rain. Thanks to them, the baby stays warm and dry, even when the weather conditions are unfavourable.
  • They create an extra layer of insulation, which is important especially in the colder months. This significantly increases comfort when carrying your baby in a sling or baby carrier, especially when the walk lasts longer.
  • Such a cover can easily be removed when entering a room, e.g. a shop.
  • A fleece / softshell cover is a cheaper alternative to a babywearing jacket and is versatile. It can be used when we carry the baby on our front or back, in a baby sling or in an ergonomic carrier.

How do I choose a babywearing cover? Is a fleece cover or a softsell cover better?

The following babywearing covers are available from Little Frog

  • Little Frog fleece cover - is made of high quality, thick fleece and is the most versatile; it can be used for woven wraps. ring sling and all kinds of ergonomic baby carriers. It is fastened around the neck of the wearer with Velcro and then adjusted to fit the baby in the sling /carrier (via a stopper adjustment system). The cover has a convenient pocket at the front. Examples of these covers can be found here: Little Frog Fleece Covers
  • Little Frog softshell cover- is made from wind, rain and cold resistant soft-shell, the same as a baby jacket for example. This provides great insulation against the cold, great for rainy or winter weather. This cover is suitable for woven wraps and baby carriers, but not ring slings. We attach it to the shoulder straps of the carrier (or the straps of the sling we have on our shoulders) and fasten it with press fasteners, and then adjust it to fit the baby through the adjustment system. The cover has a convenient pocket on the front. Here you will find Little Frog Softshell covers.
