This baby wearing blanket is an extra layer to keep baby warm while in a carrier or sling. The stretchy fabric will easily accommodate your growing child.

The body is knit in super stretchy Fisherman’s ribbing, and the applied moss stitch button bands give structure.

When attached with buttons, it can easily be removed or replaced without disturbing baby (handy if you frequently use public transport in cooler weather).

It can also fasten directly on to the carrier itself, using a combination of grosgrain ribbon with snap fasteners and icord loops, and allowing you to use an additional winter layer or a raincover.

It is designed to fit the Beco Soleil carrier but could easily be adapted to suit another carrier by repositioning the attaching loops.
