Q: I know I should have planned for this a few months ago, but now that winter is truly here (I live in Chicago) I'm realizing I need to come up with a plan for keeping my baby (due in a week!) warm when we're ready to venture out. I plan on using a carrier in the beginning instead of a stroller and am wondering what other parents recommend - a baby snowsuit, a carrier cover, one of those papoose type coats that partially covers the baby? Looking for guidance! Thanks!

Editor: My son was 6-months-old when winter really hit and, because of his weight, I had mostly abandoned my carrier in lieu of our stroller for which we had a bunting. Any parents out there who primarily carried their child through a cold winter? Advice for Jenna?
