It's best to layer over both of you so you can share body heat and be able to tell if baby is overheating or freezing. At least one baby has died in a carrier when they were layered separately from the wearer.
Jolly Jumper, Monkey Pocket, Rain or Shine Kids, Tivoli, and Kowalli are covers that go over the carrier.

BabyWAWL and Kokoala are coat extenders to let you zip your coat over baby.
Peekaru, M Coat, Suses Kinder, and Lillies of the Valley are special babywearing coats.
Amauti Baby makes a carrier made into a coat - called an Amauti, a traditional Inuit baby carrier. see less

When my baby was younger it was great because her head was covered with the K'tan and sometimes when it was too cold I used to wrapped a blanket around her. Now that she is bigger (10 months) I dress her up in winter clothes and put her in the hug position and it works!

I wrap up my little one as usual and put my coat/jacket on over us both. That is one nice thing about the Boba wrap as opposed to the Baby K'tan. With the Boba there is so much extra material to wrap around you and the baby that there is more that I can place around her legs or double up around her body.

I prefer baby wearing in the winter since it is so snuggly and keeps her warmer than if she was in a carseat. see less I wrap up my little one as usual and put my coat/jacket on over us both.

Wear it as you normally would, but under your jacket or oversized cardigan sweater. Just wrap your sweater over the baby, like a blanket, and make sure baby is dressed warmly too.

I have worn it two ways: under my jacket and on top of my jacket. It gets very cold here in Germany and rains quite often and even snows. On the rainy/snowy days I would wear it underneath my jacket for extra protection. You need a larger jacket, obviously, to fit around the baby (I wore my husbands).

It's easier to keep the baby warm this way, and even makes you feel warmer, too! When the weather wasn't as cold and when my daughter was older and wanted to be able to look around, I would put her in a snow suit, hat, etc., and wear the K'tan on the outside. I even wrapped a blanket around her with the K'tan on. There are many ways to go about it, so you can get creative and just try different ways out to see what works for you. I love the K'tan! see less I have worn it two ways: under my jacket and on top of my jacket. It gets very cold here in Germany and rains quite often and even snows.

I would wear mine under my unzipped jacket. I'd place a blanket ontop of my baby and tuck the ends underneath him, on my chest and tummy.

I don't unless we're inside somewhere, like a mall or church.

I dress her up in her winter outfit, put a long coat and bring a blanket with me and cover her.
