When I was expecting my first kid, I wanted to stock my home with everything we would need to take care of a tiny human. I asked friends for their top swaddle recommendations, scoured the internet for the best bottle reviews and bought way more bath toys than necessary.
And then when our little bundle arrived, I realized that, actually, babies don’t really need that much. But one essential item that I won’t be getting through winter without? Our baby carrier.
Don’t get me wrong—I love our stroller. But there’s no way in hell that I’m going to get that thing out for pick up and drop off this snow season. Not only is it difficult to push even the sturdiest of strollers through slush but I then have to deal with all that brown mush ending up on my living room floor. No, thank you.
Instead, I'll be taking my baby to daycare in the LILLEbaby All Seasons carrier. It features six different carry styles, a large storage pocket that's big enough for my phone and debit card plus a removable sleeping hood that doubles as a rain or snow cover in a pinch.
But I was also able to use this guy all summer long thanks to the zip-down front with breathable mesh for airflow. And the best part? The carrier is 45 percent off today. Now I just need to get a deal on a great pair of snow boots...
