Hot water bottle as stroller warmer
Jo's MIL scored a winner with this cold-weather tip:
This was actually suggested to me by my mother-in-law (who knew? most of her "advice" makes me roll my eyes but this one's really good) and my husband told me i should pass it along, so here it is...
For those really cold days that you just need to get out of the house but you're not sure about keeping the baby warm, fill a hot water bottle 3/4 full, wrap it in a blanket and pop it in the stroller near the baby's feet. Contained in a stroller bag/bunting bag/complex blanket arrangement, this is sure to keep keep the baby toasty without getting over warm. Works great with my twin boys and lets me get out for that much-needed walk even on the coldest of days.
