popoverTemperatures are starting to drop, and before you know it, you'll be bundling up to brave the winter winds and first flakes of snow.

With a baby in tow, it's often difficult because you don't want to dress them in too many layers, which can be cumbersome and even unsafe if they're in a car seat. Blankets tend to billow and blow at all the wrong times, and your coat on top of them ... well, YOU need that

That's why baby carrier covers are so convenient and effective as you tote your baby around town.

Here are a few to check out if you're looking to keep your little bug snug this winter:

The Popover (pictured right) is one of the most versatile baby carrier covers as it can be used while your baby is a front pack (like a Baby Bjorn) or in a stroller. You simply pop it over them, and they stay nice and warm. (Popover.com, $90)
