I'll probably get one of those fleece suit things for this baby for winter. Those puffy snowsuits (or even just puffy jackets) aren't safe in the car seat because in a crash all of the air inside them compresses and baby can actually fly out of the seat.. scary And a full suit sounds better than just a jacket since it gets so cold here, I'd have to really layer on the pants to keep baby's lower half warm, so I might as well cover everything with one piece
Fleece outfit here too. snow suits and jackets aren't safe for the car. Since baby will be in an infant seat for a few months I'll just be doing a fleece cover (the shower cap style, as ones that line the seat like bundle mes arent safe either) with a light blanket inside the seat. It reaches -30 to -40 here in the winter and I find that's adequate at keeping the heat in the seat without overheating baby.
I will probably just have baby in a sweater/zip sweatshirt of some sort with blankets over him/her. That's one advantage to a bucket/carrier car seat, you can get them all snug and warm and can move them from place to place.
It depends on where you live and what you'll be doing. If it's just a stroller ride in the cold, I'd do a jacket and warm sleeper with blankets. I live in SE Pennsylvania so it's only sometimes super cold in the winter, and if we're going out walking I don't do too much bundling b/c I like to use things like a moby wrap. For just walking out to the car I just dress baby as normal and put a blanket over the infant carrier as we walk out.
