When it gets colder, we are always asked which carrying jackets we recommend. First and foremost, because we are often asked that: we do not produce carrying jackets or covers. Since there are always new covers and jackets, we cannot stay up to date, which carrying jackets, covers, etc. would fit our baby carrier. It's best to ask the manufacturer of the jackets or covers, they know that for sure. So now, what do we recommend? A carrying jacket, cover, extender? Here are all the advantages and disadvantages at a glance:


Carrying jacket: 

Advantages: 
• Cuddly warm and you cuddle together with your baby under the jacket, so you know if it´s warm enough for your baby.
• Quick to put on and take off. 

Disadvantages: 
• The price. Carrying jackets are expensive. 
• If you like it very fashionable, you may find it difficult to find something suitable. 
• If you get cold quickly in the winter or if you live in an area where it gets really cold, then you might not find a jacket that keeps you warm in freezing temperatures.
• If you're traveling by car, you have to take off the jacket in icy temperatures to take out the baby and put them into the child safety seat. *


Carrying cover: 

Advantages: 
• Favorable price. 
• Large selection. 
• If you are traveling by car, you can quickly take your baby out of the carrier and put them into the child safety seat. * 

Disadvantages: 
• You do not know exactly how warm it´s for your baby. 
• You have to secure the cover. 
• For really cold areas you may need a very warm cover.


Jacket extender 

Advantages: 
• Reasonable price. 
• This can be used to complement your normal jacket. 
• Quick to put on and take off. 
• You can cuddle with your baby under the jacket. 

Disadvantages: 
• The jacket extender may not visually match with your jacket. 
• If you are traveling by car, you have to take off the jacket in freezing temperatures to take out the baby and put them into the child safety seat. *


Big jacket or similar, borrowed from baby's dad: 

Advantages: 
• no extra costs. 
• Cuddly warm and you cuddle together with your baby under the jacket, so you know if it´s warm enough for your baby. 
• Quick to put on and take off. 

Disadvantages: 
• If you like being very fashionable, you may not feel so comfortable in a men's jacket.



These were our favorites now. Do you already have experience with baby wearing in winter? What do you like most: cover, jacket or extender? We are happy to hear from you and you may help other moms and dads with their decision.

*But beware: Your baby will wear only few/not that warm clothes and will need a blanket, fur or something like that for sitting in the child safety seat!
