Such a piece of clothing as a winter sling jacket appeared on the shelves of Russian stores relatively recently. The thing immediately gained immense popularity among young mothers, and it is not surprising - this invention is extremely convenient. It is easy to guess from the name that the 3in1 winter sling jacket is intended for both a woman and a child at the same time. Its secret lies in the fact that a special insert is fastened from the inside: you put the baby in it and dress yourself. However, it must be borne in mind that this item by itself does not hold the crumbs: you must first place it in the carrier. Her role can be played by a sling scarf or a backpack.
Winter sling jacket has a number of advantages. Firstly, wearing it, you can not worry that your baby will freeze and catch a cold. Secondly, you yourself will be warm and comfortable. Finally, there is no need to torment the child with long dressings, wrapping him in several sweaters, hats and blankets. In addition, if you unfasten the insert, the jacket can be worn just like a regular piece of clothing. Comfortable, isn't it?
What to look for when buying?
BecauseA winter sling jacket is designed to protect you and your child from the cold, it should be chosen, first of all, according to the insulation. Modern manufacturers use many varieties - from a slightly outdated synthetic winterizer to the latest thermotex, holofiber, isosoft, polyfiber, etc. All these options are equally good: they are not only not inferior to traditional down, but also surpass it in such parameters as wear resistance, hypoallergenicity and lightness. Such heaters are easy to wash, dry quickly and do not absorb moisture (and therefore unpleasant odors). The denser the material, the warmer the thing will be. The minimum density should be 250-300 grams: in such a jacket you will not be afraid of even the most severe frosts. Experts also advise focusing on your own characteristics: if you like long and leisurely walks, take a super-dense insulation. In the event that you are planning visits to the street according to the principle “to the store and back”, then a winter sling jacket with any density will suit you. In any case, do not forget that at the bottom you will have a sweater, a sling and a baby. An important factor when choosing is the lining: if it is made of fleece, mentally add another five degrees to the minimum temperature. As a rule, all this information is indicated on the product label. It also indicates how to wash the product.
