Keeping Baby Warm In Winter

I live in Pennsylvania and gets quite cold in winter, I'm not sure how to keep Avelyn warm or what is appropriate. I don't want to go the "snowsuit" route as she'll only really be in the cold for a minute as I take her to the car, or from the car inside. I heard about things that cover the car seat, has anyone used them? Or wondering if a coat, hat and thick blanket are enough?

I have the Bundle Me-type thingy that covers the car seat (it's made by Graco). My brother and sis-in-law used it for their son last winter, who was born in Nov. They live in NYC so it was cold and they loved it. For me, I will dress David warmly, but this thing over the car seat will act as his jacket. I think our babes are too small for real jackets. I do have a hat for him that covers his ears and has a velcro strap for underneath his chin though.

I was just looking at the bundle me thingies, I think I'll def get one since all you have to do is zip it up and can keep it on the car seat

My ML made me one of those fleece blundle me thingie and I plan on using that- its so much easier than a snowsuit.

I live in Chicago and it gets pretty cold here in fact it has a couple of times already this year so I have already pulled mine out. I have a JJ-Cole Bundle Me and I love it. I still dress her warm and put a hat on her head but thats all I use. It has been crash tested and has been shown that the car seat will still work correctly with it on... unlike using a snow suit where the baby really isnt straped in the right way since you have to pull the straps way out to fit around the snow suit. I do however suggest to still buy a small jacket for those times you might have the baby out of the car seat. I bought a little fleece jacket from Carters.

BUNDLE ME!!!! We rarely, if ever used a snowsuit or coat when my dd was littler (born 1/31/07)...we did a thick hat, a warm blanket, then zipped up the bundle me, then layered another blanket over the whole infant seat, then we'd remove layers as needed...peice of cake! Much easier than getting a small baby in and out of a snowsuit everytime you go out!

We have a Bundle Me for my ds's stroller (made for a baby up to 12 months old) and started using it about a week ago. It keeps him nice and snug for our walks. I've also bought a snow-suit & lots of sweaters. Also a very warm hat/touque covering his ears.

Ordered a BundleMe today from Amazon! Thanks ladies!! Sounds like I'm all set, I have a little coat, socks, hats, and now the bundleme.
