    Great! We will look for car seat poncho this coming weekend because it was really hard to snap her belt on while wearing her bulky coat. She loves her wearable blanket at night but sometimes would like mommy’s arm around her in the middle of the night!

  4. Well we live in Florida so we don’t have to bundle as bad although Mason loves to cuddle up no matter what the temperature is. So Mommy will cuddle up too!

  5. I keep my son warm at night is dressing him in a sleeper and swaddling him. He doesn’t get too hot or too cold. He actually sleeps more with something keeping him close.
