During our first week at Pine Centre Mall, we had so many customers asking us "do you have maternity winter coats?" And the unfortunate answer is not really.
For us Canadians, a winter coat is used for a good portion of the year, every year, for years to come. However, in pregnancy, winter coats are for a brief moment in time. Part of the philosophy at Nest & Sprout is to ensure that products serve a purpose and a valuable one that is sustainable for your family.
We took a look at bringing in winter coats, but the selection available is expensive and maybe not the best choice for many of our customers here in Prince George. Don't worry, we have a few tips & tricks to ensure you stay cozy during your winter pregnancy and postpartum period.
Best Choice: Belly Extenders
BellyFit Universal Jacket Extender takes your favourite winter coat and extends it to fit over growing bellies and babies.
We know a good winter coat is expensive, and a maternity winter coat even more so. Simply zippering in an extender allows you to get a second life out of your every-day jacket collection and feel warm and comfortable through your pregnancy. You don't even have to give up your fashion taste and preferences.
The Extender Kit features a universal zip adapter, soft-shell extender, removable fleece layer, and is made for Canadians with Canadian materials.
Bonus: the Belly Fit Universal Jacket Extender can be flipped so that you can wear your coat over a baby carrier. This will keep you and your newborn babe warm and cozy throughout the seasons on walks and errands.
