Brrrr, it’s cold out there, baby! If you’re one of the multitude of parents who love baby carriers, you might have already discovered how hard it is to keep yourself and your child warm while wearing them. You can put the carrier on over your jacket, but then you end up overheated while indoors running errands or grabbing a coffee. Put it under your jacket, and you can’t zip it up to keep the parts not covered by your baby warm.

Since my beloved Woobee plush blanket has disappeared from shelves, what’s a mom to do? Try the Jolly Jumper Snuggle Cover to keep you and your child safe and warm. It not only has a water resistant outer layer and fleece-lined inner layer for extra warmth, but it offers two openings positioned at just the right height for a parent’s hands. That means you can easily access your baby in any position while safely fastened into the carrier of your choice. It also means you can tuck your hands inside to keep them warm as well.

It’s hard to tell from this photo, but this pile of black cloth keeps kids dry and warm when worn over a baby carrier.

The cover comes with an adjustable neck strap that lets you determine the right height for you and your growing child. It also includes a hood, which folds down when not in use. It can be used for kids front facing, facing in, or even on car seats or strollers.

When you walk inside, you can easily tuck it to one side without removing it entirely, so you don’t have yet another bulky item to lug around in your bag. It makes getting in and out the door simpler, since it requires less effort than tucking a blanket around your kid in their carrier. Because it attaches securely, it can’t come off en route. It also has a curve to the bottom to ensure that a baby’s feet stay safely inside the warm and dry area, no matter how much they kick up their heels. It’s kind of like a sack for your baby on the outside, to keep them warm and cozy on the inside.

Pockets on each side keep your hands warm and let you touch your child without removing the cover.

The only downside is that it only comes in two solid colors, gray and black. I’d like to see more color and pattern options, but given how well it works even in full winter temperatures, I can hardly complain.
