The Big Freeze – get your little ones wrapped up

I don’t know why but I always feel a little guilty putting the heating on at home during the day.  Back in my office days I am sure I would have complained if the office had been an icebox so I don’t really know why I try to soldier on through the chilly days of January with only early morning and late evening blasts of central heating.  Little A seems to run off an entirely different thermostat and throws off any socks and jumpers the moment he steps over the threshold, whilst I wrap myself and Little B up in layer upon layer. Leaving the house at the moment takes a good ten minutes longer as I try to wrestle various limbs into jumpers, coats, gloves and wellies.  One item that is worth shouting about is Little B’s new jacket by fab Danish brand Mini A Ture.  With only much older cousins and one younger, hand-me-downs can be rare in our household so I was really touched when a mum from the nursery gates offered us this little gem of a coat.  Its totally ingenious selling point is that it does up with a simple zip at the back.  Yes it might seem a little straightjacket-like to some but really it is much easier to get Little B in and out of and I don’t have to worry about her neck/chest getting cold.  When teamed with her trusty Olivier Baby & Kids bonnet she is toasty as can be.

    This coat is simply awesome! I love the zip at the back and most of all I like the idea of my child’s neck being protected against wind and cold. I’d like to buy one for my daughter 🙂
