I often have feelings of envy as I push my 19 month-old in her stroller on cold days, thinking it would be nice if it were she pushing me around town instead. Eh, I guess there’s plenty of time for that when I’m 80.
Now I’m feeling doubly jealous, since giving the Warm as a Lamb Winter Stroller Coat Cover a whirl.
Designed by mom Christine Kosteas and available at Amazon, this thing is seriously amazing, if you live in colder climes. (I’m talking to you, Minneapolis/Chicago/Boston moms.) It’s basically a heavy, thermally insulated stroller cover that completely shields the kid from the wind, cold and elements without keeping her all straight-jacketed up like those sleeping bags do.
The design is exceptionally thoughtful with mesh air vents, a little storage compartment in the back for your own stuff, and a front panel that unzips to reveal a vinyl peekaboo window then removes completely to serve as an extra blanket. You can easily unzip the window as soon as you’re in a store so the kid doesn’t roast. Ther
Get it to fit a standard stroller, jogger, or even a dual or tandem stroller. Plus? It looks nice. Quilted and chic. Definitely way better than you’d expect from the photos on the site. And definitely better than a kid with icicles hanging off her runny nose. –Liz
