It’s that time of year again: pumpkin lattes, Monday night football and hayrides all spell autumn. Here in New England we like to take advantage of glorious fall weather before Old Man Winter arrives, and that means having the right baby gear for the season. Here’s a quick list of tips for planning a successful outing:
o First and foremost: check your weather forecast! Nothing spoils an excursion faster than a passing shower.
o Make sure you and your baby stay well hydrated. Bring along plenty of extra water and protein-rich snacks to keep your energy level up. Easy options: nuts, cheese cubes, and hard-boiled eggs.
o You’re busy. Why waste time worrying about how to keep your baby warm in your favorite carrier? Having a baby carrier cover will streamline your get-out-of-the-house routine quicker than you can say 1-2-3. Simply grab it and go. Ours is a snap to put on and looks great on dads too. Take that, Mother Nature.
o Babies’ relatively large heads are especially susceptible to heat loss, so make sure to keep them covered. Kowalli KozyHats are a colorful and plush option that are designed to stay put and never ride forward. An extra fuzzy fleece earband makes for a super-cozy fit.
o Veteran babywearers know that it’s nearly inevitable for little pant legs to ride up while cruising in a baby carrier. Look for long socks, tall booties, or pant legs that cover that vulnerable ankle area. Our Snuggleboots are designed longer than most baby booties so they can be worn rolled up or down for maximum coverage and versatility. The hidden ankle elastic ensures that the boots won’t end up somewhere along the hiking trail.
Autumn is calling, it’s time to answer back. When you’re armed with the right gear, you can let spontaneity be your guide.
