Kangaroo Carrier Coat

Wearing your baby in the winter is a lot cozier if you've got a coat that's designed to accommodate you both. This puffer coat carries you through from pregnancy to motherhood with a zip-in panel that will keep both of your warm and toasty.

Swaddling Wrap

If you are looking for one warm item that can take your kiddo from carrier to stroller to carseat, consider a universal swaddler like this one. It's got a polar fleece lining to keep your tiny one protected from chilly temps and comes in an array of cute, graphic patterns.

Universal Car Seat Cover

To keep your sweet infant safe and warm on that hustle from the indoors to the car, or the car to the store, wrap their car seat in a cozy cover like this one. You can zip it up for more coverage, or unzip for less. A cover like this one can let you skip wrestling your tiny octopus into a big winter coat.

Hand Muff With Phone Pouch

It really is a shame that when you have your first child, you don't also automatically grow an extra arm. Since stroller pushing, coffee drinking and phone wrangling would take three but you've only got two, Skip Hop created this hand muff that can keep your phone in view and operated through the plastic cover, all while keeping your fingers from freezing.

BUY IT: Amazon $35

Sheepskin Seat Liner

Take the cozy pleasure of lying on a sheepskin rug on the go with a stroller liner made out of the softest merino lambskin. A liner like this is great for kids who don't like to feel confined or may get a little too warm in a full-sized sac.

BUY IT: Amazon $60

Stroller Mittens

Who knows why it took someone so long to invent stroller mittens, but thank goodness they did. These ones from 7AM Enfant attach to pretty much any stroller and stay put. Just slip your hands in and push your baby around without worrying about losing your fingers to frostbite.

BUY IT: Amazon $27-$44

Car Seat Snow Suit

Slip your wee baby into a snow suit sac like this one and don't worry about mittens, hats or being able to buckle them in. This suit accounts for all of that and comes with a very cute faux fur hood liner, to boot. The built-in mittens fold over tiny hands and the slit at the bottom is positioned just where the car seat buckle will go.

BUY IT: Amazon $75

All-Weather Cover

A weather cover like this one is a major upgrade from the all-plastic covers that often come with strollers. The waterproof fabric and ultra-clear window on this cover makes for much toastier weather protection and unobstructed views. If you've got a kiddo who dislikes the rain and snow covers, you can tell them this one turns their stroller into a super special fishbowl. It works every time!
