Peekaru on Ellen

Not sure how long this will be up on youtube so check it quickly! The Peekaru was featured on the Ellen show! And Ellen said (perhaps only in jest, but still!) that she's going to send one to Oprah!

This all started because people were making fun of it. Laugh all you want; wearing your baby and getting the heck out of the house in the cold makes life better for everyone.

Seriously, what on earth do they expect moms to do when it's cold out? Put a stroller on snow and ice? I've lived up north in the bitter cold. It's not realistic to get out and about when it's bitter nor when the ground is not clear. It's much more realistic to wear your baby, and warm covers such as the Peekaru make this possible.

On a more personal note, one of my employees was really suffering being stuck indoors during the bitter cold northern winter. I bought her a Peekaru and the difference it made was amazing. She was able to get some much needed sunshine which, in turn, improved her emotional outlook and of course helped her to be a better mom. Isn't that what we all want?

Laugh all you want at these. Hopefully, you'll be getting one when you have your own babies.

I think this is a great idea, I wish they had more designs and options out there for bundling up with a baby in tow!

There are more options and lots of alternatives being added all the time. I am not an expert on this since we moved to a warm climate but there are actually attractive options now. I saw a coat recently with a section in the middle that you added while pregnant or babywearing and then could remove so the coat was still usable. How cool is that? There are lots of vests and other things that can be used so you can keep your coat open. That's good to about 20 degrees F if you are moving.
