I found out quickly this winter that cold ears = unhappy baby. Which is why this daft beanie hat from Isbjörn of Sweden has been an invaluable addition to Sonny’s outdoor wardrobe.
I was worried we’d be stuck indoors once the temperatures began to plummet, but Sonny’s as happy outside now as he was in summer, which has done wonders for my winter adventures. Here are my top tips for beating combatting the cold with your kid…
