Lush mossy green has been keeping our winter blues away - a light knit poncho from Nana Australia has been perfect against chilly evenings, cloudy days, and generally making the best of Melbourne's propensity for four-seasons-in-one-day weather.
A LOT. Since then, our all-weather Babywearing arsenal has grown quite a bit, and the Nana poncho is a useful and practical addition.
There's a neat back opening to facilitate back carries AND a warm neck, and even when baby is NOT on your back (or indeed anywhere to be seen) this sits flat and won't flap open or let a breeze through. Win. The crossover style means you're not constantly tugging it on - tie up and soldier on.
I have found it much easier to put on (in a back carry!) than a full jacket, and Audrey likes it too - she can move her hands around a little more while still having the extra layer over her back. It's also a lot easier to stuff into a bag when the weather perks up.
Verdict: great extra layer. Suitable for evening chill, useful for front and back carries. If you head over to Nana Australia you'll also notice some pretty awesome jackets that will vanquish winter and keep you super snug. In the meantime, we'll be enjoying the versatility of this!
