I made my first simple babywearing Coat when my twins were a few months old and it worked out really well.
In the Winter of 2010 Mamas on the Natural Mamas forum asked if I would put together some instructions for my low cost Babywearing Coat and so I did.
This is me wearing that first DIY Babywering coat back in 2007 ! My babies are now 7 years old, how time flies. These coats are really easy to sew and with Fleece jackets coasting as little as £3 each you can make your own coat for as little as £6.
Go on, give it a go !
Instructions can be downloaded here.
*update 2013, I never did get around to coming up a simple way of making the coat suitable for wearing with back carries. Maybe this year.
