will 4 week dd overheat in a snowsuit+sling? she will, won't she?

...can you tell my last one was summer born grin?

yes. I just put mine in a warm jacket and hat - you need lots of layers. Will her feet be dangling out? My DS's are tucked in in my sling, I think you would need some quite warm footwear for her

I don't use anything except a hat, but wear the sling under my jacket, which just about does up round both of us.

you would prob be all right if you put socks on under her sleepsuit - esp if you tuck your jacket round you both

thanks for the advice. i think she was ok in the fleece - she certainly wasn't complaining.

We had an all in one fleecy thing for super cold sling days. DS used to go mental in a snowsuit (probably 100% polyester) as he got too hot. He was a fat baby though!

Currently a Hat, but he's tucked up inside my coat and even with his hat on has sometimes gotten a bit hot. My coat is a very thick and lined fleece. So we're both toasty warm. No feet sticking out eith.

I have got a fleece cover to go over him when he's to big to do up my coat.
