baby it's (still) cold outside
Tomorrow morning, Alice and I have a date with -38F (with the wind factor)...a 10 minutes walk to her daycare!

The amauti is the parka worn by Inuit women of the eastern Canadian arctic. Up until about two years of age, the child nestles against the mother's back in the amaut, the built-in baby pouch just below the hood. The pouch is large and comfortable for the baby. The mother can bring the child from back to front for breastfeeding. This traditional eastern Arctic Inuit parka designed to keep the child warm and safe from wind and cold, also helps to develop bonding between mother and child. (thank you wikipedia)
