While it may be summer I am already thinking ahead to fall and winter with a toddler. I love going for walks especially in the fall when there are all the beautiful colours from the leaves changing. It is my favourite time of year. I feel guilty though wanting to go for walks as a family, but I know I need to keep my daughter warm too when she is in the stroller. You have the cold, and the wind to deal with sometimes. With that weather there are often bright red cheeks and noses on the faces of those who are outside. This is where the Nomie Baby Cozy Footmuff will be so helpful.
The stroller blanket is lined with cozy fleece, and has a wind resistant layer on the outside. It comes in blue, or purple fleece on the inside with a charcoal colour for the outside fabric. If you are wondering, yes you can put it in the washing machine and the dryer. This makes cleaning this stroller blanket very easy. The Nomie Baby Cozy Footmuff is perfect for keeping the cold out and your little one warm when they are inside it. There is also a little pocket on the front where you can place different items like soothers, little toys, snacks, or even your house keys.
The footmuff is also incredibly easy to install onto a stroller. You place the back of the blanket against the stroller seat, open up the velcro openings, pull the stroller straps and buckle through, close the velcro openings at the shoulder height needed, and then slip the elastic band at the back of the blanket of the strollers seat. All done! Now all you have to do is put your little one in and buckle them up.
I really appreciate how easy it is to put my daughter in, and take her out of this stroller blanket. Instead of having to bundle her up in many think layers, I know I can count this blanket as one of those layers to keep her warm. This way, if we are heading into a coffee shop and it is too warm inside I do not have to worry about removing multiple layers to keep her from being too warm. I can simple take her out of the stroller blanket, or just unzip the stroller blanket and leave it open.
I have seen the prices of other similar products on the market, and I have looked at them too. This one is on par with all the others out there. The big difference though is price. This one comes in at $58, this is a huge savings compared to the others. If you are in the market for a stroller blanket, give this one a try.
This stroller blanket will be getting put to lots of use this fall and winter. I know my daughter will be warm and cozy in it.
