    I love the look of them and they are a really great price for babywearing outer-wear, but do you think they'd be very warm? I mean, it's just fleece, right?

    I find I get super hot wearing DD anyhow. I have this fleece thing I put her in and she is always hot when I take her out. Buy one, buy one.... I was wondering about the lack of arms though.

    This is from the site:

    What, no sleeves?
    The Peekaru Original can be worn alone or with a coat over it. You can add your rain coat, winter coat or even another babywearing coat over the Peekaru Original so you always have the perfect amount of warmth for the temperature. We believe the final design provides the best compromise of warmth, ease of use, and style. The high quality Malden Mills fleece is surprisingly warm, we found that at Christmas in Northern Idaho, we needed only a hat, a Peekaru Original, baby heater (our daughter) and gloves we were fine to walk for over an hour!
    That sounds pretty good to me. I guess you could always add sleeves to it later if you wanted to. At the moment I have Jack in his carrier and a coat on over the top (which I can't do up) so this would just be an extra layer. Obviously I wouldn't be walking in -20C or something equally horrible anyway!

    I'm feeling brave! I'm going to order one now and I'll let you know how it goes!!

    Those are neat!

    I also love the idea of getting a matching zipper to an existing fav. coat, and attaching each half to either side of a piece of fleece. The fleece can then be used to bridge the gap in the coat when baby is being worn (in a front carry, of course). It would be cheap to do, but the tricky part is finding a zip that matches the coat. I also like that your coat can go back to usual when not in BW mode.

    Here's a pretty good picture:

    Siana - I thought of the exact same thing while I was pregnant. I refused to buy a new coat for the few remainder weeks of winter/spring (when I was getting really big) - but really thought they needed to have a coat "expansion panel".

    I pulled my Kiddopotamus carrier cover out of the closet this morning to cover the baby when we went to play group. I haven't used it since B was a babe. I forgot how great carrier covers are. She was so cozy and I didn't have to stick her in a snowsuit to leave the house. Too bad her head is too big to fit the matching hat!
