By gum, itâ€™s cold out, and no matter how cold I am, Iâ€™m always aware that the Little One is probably even colder since sheâ€™s lying still in her buggy, not walking briskly like I am. She has sadly outgrown her Bug in a Rug (noooo!) and I thought Iâ€™d have a look around before I bought a replacement; see if I could find something equally snuggly to get us through the long dark days until Spring has sprung.
Imagine my delight upon finding baby hoodies from Morrck. Even just looking at the pics makes me feel all warm and toasty.
The idea is that itâ€™s like a huge fleecy blanket, with a hat, and with holes for the harness in your pushchair / carseat. Perfect.
Itâ€™s available in baby sizes 0 â€“ 5 months and 4 â€“ 18 months, but also in a larger size that fits from 18 months to 4 years! (Sadly, unlike the Moccis, theyâ€™re not yet available in adult sizes. The Morrck website even tells you, rather strictly, that theyâ€™re not recommended for use with adult seatbelts. Oh well.)
They have all manner of colours for the outside and the lining. I have to say I prefer the colours available in the larger size: a rather distinguished charcoal lined with a zingy lime (pictured, right), turquoise, or fuchsia jersey. Handily, Morrck also do a â€˜design your ownâ€™ option meaning that you can choose to have these colours on any size.
You can even order them from the Morrck website in a variety of different weights, from ultra light, year-round, or classic (extra warm). Think Iâ€™ll be plumping for the extra warm option, myself, for Â£37.95 with delivery an extra Â£3.95.
