Twiga Babywearing coat!


We need to talk. After acquiring a Momawo babywearing jacket, I said I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to wear all-year round. Well, I still would, but now that it's warming up, I don't need quite so much insulation, more a windstopper to cut the chill and keep off the damp... and Twiga has come to the rescue. 


This is SLEEK. Without a baby bundled in the front or back (HEY, it comes with two slightly different style inserts, so you could actually tandem in this!) it's a really nice A-line jacket with a removable hood. Audrey liked the child's hood (removable) so much she insisted on wearing it WITHOUT the jacket, which was amusing on a sunny 24C day. The panel pictured above is the cooler option; the adult jacket stays open above the insert. For colder weather and smaller babies or back carries the second panel (which allows a full closure in the adult collar) would be more comfortable :)


As you can see above, the insert is designed to fit snugly and accommodates a 2.5yo in a front or back carry - pretty impressive. I really like the streamlined fit of this coat and the built-in 'gloves' (not GLOVES, but hand warmers with a thumb hole!) are deal-makers for me. I ALWAYS suffer from cold hands in the winter and there's nothing worse than a chilly breeze gusting up one's sleeves. 


Fortuitously, we've had a couple weeks of drippy rain. As I write this, it's gently and pervasively dripping outside. Even when it's NOT raining precipitation seems imminent. A couple jaunts to the park have been saved by this coat; I wear it with the panel stuffed in my bag, Audrey trots alongside in her hoodie, then when rain threatens I tucker her in a wrap, zip the extra panel in and we bolt home. Good times. The zip-closure pockets are great for keys, phone and wallet - quick trips don't even need a bag. 


You can see the nice cosy fit afforded by elastic toggles at Audrey's neck and in the hood; and see my hands?! That's PART OF THE COAT. GENIUS. 


Generously, Twiga has offered to give one of my followers their own soft-shell babywearing jacket - they come in black, red, or turquoise, and you can find a size chart and the official description HERE. When you know what size you need, you can click to enter right about... here! Good luck!
