While the colder weather brings hot chocolate, tree trimming, and extra snuggles, it can also send a chill down mom’s spine. As soon as I became a mom, the excitement of first snow turned into anxiety about my little one getting cold and ending up sick.
The truth of the matter is, kids don’t get sick from the cold weather – they get sick because everyone is moved inside to close quarters and germs are exchanged easily. SmartMom’s advice? No need to bring your little one to the mall or indoor gym every day. Instead, bundle up and take a walk outside!
In honor of Jack Frost nipping at our noses:
7AM Enfant designs comfortable, cozy (vegan) products for stylish babies and modern families. The Evolution Blanket is a SmartMom favorite because it allows you to size it up or down using zippered length and width extensions—this product can actually grow with your child! Whether you’re out for a morning hike in the mountains or strolling city sidewalks, the water-repellent outer shell and fleece-lining will keep your little one warm and dry.
Bonus: it easily converts from a wearable garment to a large blanket, and is machine washable and dryable.
Quick tip: Get baby winter ready by connecting the Evolution Blanket to your stroller the night before cold weather is supposed to hit. That way, your morning walk won’t be delayed or skipped.
