This thing means its own for everyone: someone carefully keeps it and picks it up when he wants to remember this magical moment, and someone uses it once and forgets about it. This is a newborn envelope. But both should be interested to know that in winter the envelope is the most popular “clothes” for babies. If an addition to your family is expected in winter, then this article will be of interest to you.
When choosing an envelope for your baby, pay attention to the following criteria:
- The versatility of the model. It does not matter whether the envelope will be used once or constantly, it is very important that the model is universal, i.e. could be used as bedding, blanket, swaddling blanket, etc. For walks, for example, the main thing is that the envelope is warm and comfortable;
- Spacious option. Choose an envelope so that you can fit a baby wrapped in a blanket;
- Materials. Wool or microfiber envelopes are ideal for the winter season. These materials keep warm well, while the baby’s body “breathes”. However, it is worth remembering that natural materials are not suitable for a small allergic person, then it is better to purchase an envelope made of high-quality synthetic filler;
- Convertible envelope. An envelope with a hood, boots and mittens will be an ideal option for an active kid. Usually the legs in such models are wide, and your baby can easily be active with legs and arms. And also such a model will come in handy when the baby grows up;
- For road trips. For those who like to travel by car with a child, they will like models with special slots for safety belts;
- Stroller add-on. Very often, winter models of strollers are supplemented with this important accessory for a newborn. The winter bag in the form of a stroller bag will perfectly warm your baby during walks;
- For growth. Everyone knows that babies grow very quickly, the same applies to newborns. Therefore, when choosing a model of an envelope or a set, take one size larger, as they say “for growth.” Some models are equipped with additional space at the bottom, by unfastening the snake, you can easily add a dozen centimeters for children’s space.

We were discharged from the hospital when it was winter. And, of course, in such a cold season, you want to wrap your baby as warm as possible. The quality of the Northern Lights envelope is excellent, but its functionality leaves much to be desired. As all mothers know, the first walk, and even in the cold season, is stressful in itself for anyone, because for the first time you are leading your miracle to show the new world. In general, when the child was lying on the bed, packed in an envelope, everything was still good, but when they took the baby in his arms, he began to bend his legs and his head began to slowly fall into the envelope itself, and did not remain in the hood! There was no opportunity to unfasten the envelope on the street, and the baby was clearly giving it all the big inconvenience.
I advise everyone – buy overalls!
I got such an envelope for my daughter (“Vita”). She is now almost 4 months old. Very comfortably! We walk in it in a stroller, it’s hot – I open it, it’s cold – I wrap it up. She does not like swaddling, here – the legs are free, they are separate. Transferring from a stroller to a car seat – no problem. The envelope has a kind of hood, protects from the wind when I take it on the handles outside. The colors are very delicate, the material is soft, very pleasant to the touch. We will soon go for a walk and buy another one, larger. You don’t have to worry about the legs getting cold.
A very necessary thing for the little ones and not only. The envelope (“Favorite peas”) was sewn very efficiently, the second child is using it already. It didn’t break anywhere, not a single zipper broke, the wool didn’t fray. Envelope made of natural sheepskin, soft, warm, pile length about one and a half centimeters. The upper layer is made of raincoat fabric, while the quality of the fabric is such that it is breathable, but at the same time it is not breathable. On the sides and top of the envelope there are zippers that allow you to easily place the baby in the envelope. The envelope is sewn in such a way that it can be used not only as a direct envelope in a stroller, but as a warm bedding for an already grown baby, both in a stroller and in a baby sled. I think that this thing is simply irreplaceable for winter. And the price matches the quality.
