I guess it’s technically called BabyBjorn Cover for Baby Carrier and not a Cape, but I need to recommend this nice-to-have number for the following real-life situations:
- You’re at Studio Grow or Music Class with the big one and the little one desperately needs a nap. Switch the baby to inward facing, pop on the cape, jiggle, and wait for sleep to arrive. The cape is awesome for blocking out distractions. Worked on Scarlett today in minutes. Has also done the trick for Milo.
- Sunny days. For Berkeley-style mild but sunny summers, the cape has provided the perfect sun protection on blindingly white arms and legs and a baldy little head. It might be too hot for real summer weather, but it’s been fab here.
- Colder or windy weather. This snuggly warm protecting device is made to keep the wee one warm without worrying about other bulky layers. I think that’s probably it’s true purpose.
I probably wouldn’t have asked for this or even thought of it. I got mine as a gift from my old junior high boyfriend, Niklas, and bought one off the registry for my SIL.
I thoroughly recommend it if you’re a Bjorn family and you’re expecting baby #2 or if you live in either a mild, sunny or cold climate for your baby’s first six months. Hello Bay Area, this means you!
