As many of you already know I love using baby carriers. They are practical and comfortable plus they offer all the amazing benefits of bonding and connecting with your little one at the same time.
This is the first year I am using my carrier to go out a lot during the winter time and I realized that using blankets and oversized coats to keep my son warm while out on our daily walks was not working anymore.
After doing some research I found the Kowalli Baby Carrier Covers. They are a wonderful invention and just what we need for the winter time in Vancouver. They are made with weather-treated Polartec fleece that repels rain, snow and wind. It rains a lot here so having a cover that repels the rain and keeps my son warm at the same time is wonderful. Plus the material is super soft and cuddly.
The covers protect against temperatures as low as 15 F (-10 C). In Vancouver we rarely reach lower temperatures than that so it means I can use my carrier during the entire winter without having to worry about the cold.
Kowalli Baby Carrier Covers are compatible with all carriers, slings and wraps and the design allows for baby to see out, great for a curious little baby or toddler.
One thing I noticed is that going out with our stroller when is cold outside doesn’t keep me or my son as warm, even when wearing jackets/gloves and with a stroller bag and blanket for him. Having him close to me in the carrier helps us BOTH stay warm and I love that. He just rests his little head on me and enjoys the ride.
I like that the carrier is super easy to wear. You just throw it on (over your head), cinch it and you are ready to go. The one handed pull tab makes adjusting it very easy once you are wearing it. If it gets so cold that I need to wear my winter coats I just wear the Kowalli over my coat (with baby next to my skin) and that’s super comfortable and keeps us both warm and happy.
I have washed our carrier cover a couple of times already in our washing machine and there were no problems. It came out looking great.
I really love our Kowalli cover. I have even used it as a warm blanket when I am rocking my little one at night and I can see it would work great as a nursing cover as well. So practical and cozy!
