What was one of your favorite/must have items for the cold weather?


I'm due in January & so far the main thing I can think of is the warm cover that goes over the top of the carseat (not the ones that go under baby). I think this winter is going to be a bad one so I would love to know what everyones favorite/most used things were!

my ds was born in early Jan. (Jan. 5 1989) and this is what I always dressed him in when going outside that winter.

I had two babies in January. My favorite was the sleep bag! You know, the coat that you put on them but it wasn't hard to get in the car seat? Looks like the baby above was in his. I loved that thing. Only mine had a hole in it for the seat clip. Love that thing. They also make covers that go over the seat. With a hole in it for baby to breathe. I want one, if I do have another winter baby.

Car seat poncho.
an important warning though,do not put a thickcoat on them in the car seat!
It will compress if you are in an accident and your baby could be ejected from the seat!

Either get a thick blanket to go over baby, the seat, or both!

Blanket sleepers, long sleeve onesies, hats!
I had two winter babies :)
January and February!
