As temperatures continue to drop here in New England, we’re coming to grips with the notion that winter is upon us. One consequence of the cooler weather is bulky outerwear, and cramming a bundled-up baby into a Baby Bjorn is not fun for anyone involved. But necessity is the mother of invention, which explains why a local mom invented an incredibly smart winter cover for the Baby Bjorn.There are plenty of fleece covers for the Bjorn available, including a very nice one just introduced by Baby Bjorn itself, but the Brookspond Carrier Cover is head and shoulders above the competition. The cover itself will fit the carrier, as well as a stroller or a car seat. The materials are carefully chosen for warmth and style, and the profile is sleek, so it does not add much bulk. It is fully adjustable, with multiple options for fit and exposure. Interior pockets are thoughtfully included to keep the wearer’s hands warm, and there’s even a zippered pouch for essentials. The brilliant collar can either be worn flat, snapped into a hood, or tucked around the baby’s shoulders for extra warmth.The Carrier Cover is more expensive than any other brand, and the price changes depending on which style you choose (there are six varieties), ranging from $65 to $145. But if you place a high value on features, and you plan on using your Baby Bjorn a lot this winter, this is a worthwhile investment (and a great gift for a new mom, too).
