Babywearing in Winter takes a little bit more thought and effort given that you have to account for the weather. Sometimes it's wet and windy, sometimes it's quite mild. So it can be hard to know what to wear when you want to get out and about with your baby in a sling, whether you're out friends and family or touring Christmas markets. Here are some of our favourite things that will help keep you covered and warm, so if you want to go out whatever the weather, you can!
Now a much-loved classic in the babywearing world (and rightly so), Mamalila jackets are simply perfect - they're award winning and have a loyal fan base; in fact, we'd go so far as to say they're the best babywearing jackets in the world. Not just for babywearing or maternity, these jackets last and last - buy one and it will be your go-to outdoor jacket for many years to come. And they keep getting better and better every year - they're now 100% made with recycled materials.
Our PickThe Allrounder - as the name suggests it's a great all-round jacket for autumn, winter & spring in the UK and Ireland and will keep you (and baby) warm & dry. Read our latest review.

MANY MONTHS MERINO HOODS
These gorgeous, cosy, soft and non-itchy hat-snood-hood-combo hoods are just fabulous and have been a favourite for many years. What makes them so popular? They stay in place and protect to the head, neck, chest, and upper back. Protection of the chest is especially essential for babies who are teething and drooling. No scarf or high collar is needed.
Our PickAny colour you like! The wonderfully soft and stretchy merino wool rib doesn't itch or tickle, and the perfect fit means they're almost impossible for children to take off and throw away, particularly great when back carrying.
Gorgeous, cosy, soft and non-itchy legwarmers to keep your little one snug all winter. Perfect for covering little arms or legs when babywearing; for protecting little knees when crawling; and can even be worn by mum or dad as wristwarmers.
Our PickAny colour you like - remember, you can use them as wrist warmers when they're too big for baby, so choose a colour you'll wear yourself!
Babywearing covers are an excellent solution for when you're out and about with baby, but you have your own good outdoor jacket and so don't want to go to the expense of a full on babywearing jacket. These covers can be used over any type of baby carrier, and can be switched between users very easily.
Our PickThe Mamalila Allrounder Cover - made from the same materials as the Allrounder Jacket, it'll keep baby warm and dry. Oh, and it has pockets to keep your hands warm.
LOVE & CARRY HOODIE
Who doesn't love a hoodie!? I mean, I'm wearing one right now. Couple that with maternity zips and a babywearing insert, and you've got the perfect hoodie. This one is simple and functional hoodie, and will see you through pregnancy and babywearing. Great for when you need to cover up when it's cool, but don't want to go to the expense of a babywearing coat.
Our PickChoose from 3 colours - Caramel, Biscay and Rose. The babywearing panel also has a hood for when you're carrying on your front.
