The best baby-wearing coats to keep you and your baby warm

There’s nothing better than getting out and about on a frosty morning to clear your head and get some fresh air with your baby.

If you’re not wanting to take the big pram out, wearing your baby on your walk is a great alternative as it keeps your baby close to you and cosy without having to push the pram over rough terrain. It also keeps your hands free too!

If the weather is particularly chilly or your coat isn’t quite big enough to fit both you and your tot in, in their baby carrier, a baby-wearing coat is a great alternative, as it’s made specifically for fitting you and your baby into one snuggly coat.

Most baby-wearing coats also take you from maternity to post-birth, meaning they’re a great investment if you will be pregnant during the autumn/winter months.

We’ve rounded up some of the best warm, waterproof and lightweight baby-wearing coats to keep you and baby warm, whatever the weather.
