How to keep Baby’s legs warm in Slings and Carriers

Whether it is winter, spring, autumn or even a nippy summer morning – baby’s legs stick out of the sling or carrier and can get a bit chilly. Here are my top two products for keeping legs and feet toasty and layers in place while your out and about….

Products shown are Mel (from Wrap a Hug)’s wonderful Babywearing socks, and MooMo Baby leg warmers.

Mel’s socks are super warm and cosy. Perfect for the coldest days or those spring/autumn days where you don’t quite need a coat but there is a definite chill in the air. They are one sizes and fit from newborn all the way to preschooler and possibly beyond! They are footed so they keep toes very cozy in carriers, prams, car seats and the a like, but aren’t maybe the best for baby to walk in as they can be a bit slippery!

The legwarmers by contrast are perfect for walkers as the feet stick out and wearing in combo with shoes to keep legs warm and layers in place. They come in two sizes – baby and toddler and both have a wide fit range (baby fitting from newborn to 2 years, and toddler fitting from 1-4 years) – and two thicknesses. The lightweight ones are perfect for spring/autumn or even summer on chillier mornings or as UV protection. While the lined ones are warmer and perfect for cooler days. Neither are as warm as the socks nor as bulky so perfect for layering under trousers or over tights etc! They are also fabulous for potty training and it after my daughter insisted she no longer wanted to wear nappies in the middle of January that we discovered these awesome legwarmers. She still loves her pairs and still squeezes into them regularly 2 years on!

Both are availible in a range of colours in the webshop. Any questions about either of these – please do get in touch!
