Summer in New York City often brings with it tropical storms in the form of thunderstorms which are no fun if you have to venture out. And when you have to take your child in the stroller the two of you soon become one warm, soggy mess. The Pookie Poncho from 7 AM Enfant is an ingenious cover that can be used for keeping your little one warm and cozy and also to shelter him from the elements.
I recently received a Pookie Poncho for review and was happy to discover its many uses. Not only did it act as a rain cover for the stroller, but it’s also great stroller cover during cold weather, a car seat cover and even a baby carrier cover! The material is soft, made of 100% polyester and is machine-washable. It comes in one size (newborn to four years old) and has a cord that you can pull on to make it tighter for small babies. It fits all baby carriers, stroller and car seats.
The cool thing about the Pookie Poncho that it’s not an entire body suit that your child has to wear, but rather a cover, so you can use an extra blanket underneath for really cold days. If you use it as a baby carrier cover you can be certain your baby won’t get overheated because your body will also generate heat so that, together with the Pookie Poncho, will keep him comfortably warm.
