We don’t do sponsored posts around here because I want you all to read out posts and know that you are reading about products because we like them, use them and most times, suggest them to you, if they fit into you lifestyle. Today, we are talking about my favorite baby product (hands down) right now. Lisa reviewed the 7amEnfant 212 evolution last year and this year, I have been using, testing and did I mention, loving the 212 evolution. On other 7am product note, I added the warmmuffs to my stroller accessory must have list!
The Warm Muffs attach directly to your stroller and create perfect little warm “mitts” to stick your hands in. Allowing you to leave gloves at home. Who doesn’t want one last thing to remember when leaving the house with kids? These are great at protecting from the elements and are waterproof. They allow you to keep your hands glove free to be able to use your phone, grab a paci, a thrown sippy cup or any other ninja mom trick you may need to do while strolling. I will say though, on the super cold days, I wear a pair of gloves underneath for double protection.
Back to the 7am Enfant 212evolution…
Eloise lovingly calls this her “bundle” and I call them my lifesaver. I literally couldn’t face the NYC winter (with no car) without the 212evolution. It may seem obvious but the 212evolution is SO warm. Fluffy poly insulation is nestled between a waterproof outer layer and soft micro fleece on the inside. The 212evolution has openings on the back that close with velcro to allow your stroller straps (accommodates a 5 point harness) to fully function when using it. An adjustable back strap allows you to securely attach it to your stroller so it stays in place. The hood can unzip and be folded over the back of the stroller or zipped (like above) the fully bundle your little one.
Other than the serious warmth it provide it is totally adjustable to grow with your child. You can adjust it to two different lengths and two width sizes allowing it to grow with your child. We use the longest length for both our girls and have plenty of room for lots more growth and many more freezing winters.
We started using the 212evolution blankets in the chillier fall temps. Because the 212evolution is so warm, the girls didn’t have to wear coats, just a light sweater which was incredibly handy because they weren’t instantly sweating when we popped in a store and I didn’t have to relayer them after leaving our outing. Now that temps are pretty frigid, they can wear a warm winter coat over their normal outfit and be perfectly comfortable. I don’t ever have to worry about bringing blankets to keep them warm because the 212evolution has them covered and protected. While we have separate rain covers for our strollers there have been times we have been caught out in the rain and the 212evolution’s do a great job of wicking moisture so it doesn’t penetrate the filling.
The above is what happens when you ask your silly almost-one-year old to “smile”! Margaux can be very anti hat, which can sort of drive me bonkers because hats are a necessity. However, I feel better that if she yanks it off because she is still protected with her bundle on.
I rarely dedicate a full post to one product (okay, two with the hand muffs) but the 212evolution is such a staple in my daily life that I highly recommend if you are out in the elements this winter, consider the 212evolution. Not only is it super warm and functional but it is stylish, too! Our bundle’s are a beautiful purple, called “grape” but they come in lots of great colors and neutrals, too.
These are a great item for your Christmas list as they will last you through several winters!
Last year we had the Le Sac Igloo for Margaux’s car seat and I loved it equally as much. It was great at protecting her from the elements while allowing me to not have to dress her in several layers as a newborn.
Don’t forget to check out Lisa’s comprehensive review from last year for more details on features and how it fits so well into her life, too!
