The 'layers' of farm fashion just keep increasing! How do you get out of the house to check on critters in the winter with a baby in tow?
Just keep layering!
Here are a few helpful tips:
1. Dress yourself first. Baby second!
Start with yourself because if you get hot and impatient to get outside once you have a 1000 layers on, you better believe the baby does too! And she's not shy about letting you know it!
That means base layer, snow pants, baby carrier, that first sweater, and hat all on. Phew! Getting warm yet?? Now on to baby ...
2. Baby Carrier!
There are all sorts of baby carriers out there but I like mine because Little Miss can face outward. A girl's gotta be able to see all those goofy animals moving around! (She seriously gets excited about being outside - makes all the effort of taking her with SO worth it.)
3. Maternity Sweatershirt
Don't put those maternity clothes away TOO fast! That zip up maternity sweatshirt is perfect for going on over the carrier and zipping around baby to add an extra layer of warm. For you AND baby :)
4. Snowsuit + Blanket
A warm base layer, (onsie, pants, sweater, socks) followed by a snowsuit, and topped off with a hat (velcro closure recommended ;) ) and baby is ready to go in carrier! I also like to take a blanket along when we go out side for extra warmth and/or to block wind IF you turn a corner and a breeze surprises you :)
And we're off to play! I mean .... check livestock :D
