I'm expecting my 3rd baby in October near Halloween. I live in the desert, southern utah so it doesn't get really cold and doesn't snow. I have ordered a fleece bunting for my baby. I own a flannel maya wrap I got off ebay for my second baby from a WAHM. I don't like it much, though because the seam on the shoulder where the fabric is sewn together is way too thick and makes a bulge that digs into my shoulder. I have a homemade thin lightweight maya wrap that I made from the directions on their website, but the fabric slips a bit too much. I made it from a cotton tapestry I had. Then I have my old worn out OTSBH leftover from my baby days with my oldest DD, who is 3.5.
So anyway, I am considering getting a fleece pouch for this winter baby. I will be attending a few functions in December - a craft festival, a tree festival and gala fundraising dinner. These will all be indoors, but still feel a fleece sling or pouch would be ideal. Any recommendations? Or should I just order a real Maya wrap and dress the baby warmer? I will need to nurse in public at these events and thought a ring sling would definately be more discreet. I just worry about my baby getting cold, especially while taking our girls to see Santa Claus and stuff like that. I'm also a bit of a fleece addict (so in love with my Fuzzi Bunz and Old Navy fleece sweaters! lol)
Thanks for any advice!
