Snuggle Up for a Stroll
The easiest way to keep your baby warm while walking from here to there? Outfit your stroller with a specially designed sack like the JJ Cole Urban BundleMe. The water-resistant bag will keep your kiddo so warm you may not even have to bother dressing her up in mittens and a coat — as long as she won’t be getting out of the stroller, that is! Also great: It’s machine washable just in case it quickly gets covered with slush from those messy city streets. $49.95 at jjcolecollections.com.

Kiss Cold Hands Goodbye
Forget leaving your hands exposed to icy air — that stroller bar gets too cold to hold! 7AM Enfant’s genius Stroller Warmuffs attach to the handlebar and allow you to slip your hands inside to keep them warm. We love that you can slip your hands out just as quickly to adjust a hat and shoot a text to the mom you’re on the way to meet, all without a chance of losing your gloves. $38 at giggle.com.

Stay Safe & Warm in the Car
Proper car seat safety can be tricky. Experts say not to dress your babies in bulky winter snow suits and coats, but also frown upon some types of warm car seat covers that may hinder car seat straps. The Cozy Cover gets a nod of approval because it adds warmth and protection from snow, but only covers the top of the seat, so it doesn’t interfere with safety. $27.83 at cozy-cover.com.
