Living in a cold climate can present challenges when it comes to taking your baby out in frigid weather. Thank goodness options in babywearing coats exist. A babywearing coat quite simply allows you to keep your baby warm in the coldest of weather nicely concealed under your coat in a carrier. Protected from the elements you can get out and about no matter what your needs may be from running errands around town to enjoying the wilderness and outdoor activities with your baby.
Here are three innovative winter coats each designed to be worn with or without a baby carrier.
The Suse Kinder Coat: Patagonia meets Baby Bjorn with this fantastic utilitarian coat. An incredibly versatile unisex coat, particularly great for fathers who enjoy the outdoors. Sling users love it, as it is the only coat on the market that accommodates a sling carrier with its unique hip carry option.

The M Coat: A fabulous Canadian collaboration between a couture designer and outerwear company. Offering added versatility through their own unique design “The dual position removable insert” - intended for use until full term, then simply turn the panel around for babywearing and voila!
