Winter babywearing tip: Keep your baby’s face uncovered.
It’s winter and, baby, it’s cold outside. But keep that awesome baby carrier handy, guys!
Babywearing in winter allows us to ditch the stroller and walk with greater ease through the snowy streets and trails. Because really, who wants to struggle in the frigid cold while trying to push that stroller over snow banks? No one. That’s who.
Babywearing definitely makes getting around with your baby in winter much easier, but there’s one very important tip to remember: ALWAYS make sure you can see your baby’s face, no matter how bundled up you two are.
That means you must NEVER zip your baby all the way inside your coat or jacket. When you zip your baby inside, you restrict air flow to your baby’r nose and mouth, which can result in a dangerous lack of oxygen and raise the risk of serious injury to your baby. Hats and bundled up necks are great, but keep those airways free!
