Jolly Jumper Snuggle Cover – Best New-Momma Gift!
As a busy mom of three little ones, who are all seemingly not so little anymore, I have tested out a lot of products over the decade + span that I have been lucky enough to be a mom. As many a seasoned momma will profess, there are oodles of gadgets and gizmos that turn out to be duds. Maybe they are great for someone else, but not for you? The recognizable bumbo chair falls into that category for me. Good thing I received it as a hand-me-down.

When I was expecting my 3rd baby I apparently pinned a new baby product I had seen on Pinterest, The Jolly Jumper Snuggle Cover. It looked neat and likely something I really would have loved to have had for my first two kids. Would I get it? No idea, but it felt good to pin it at least. A momma can dream, right? 🙂
Months later at a surprise baby “sprinkle” my momma friends threw for me to welcome our last addition to the family, they gifted me the coveted baby product, the Jolly Jumper Snuggle Cover. Truth be told, I had forgotten I had ever pinned it. My super smart friend sleuthed through my Pinterest boards to get ideas for baby gifts! Score! (Big Hint: friends who are having babies- try pinning coveted baby products in your Pinterest boards..maybe your friends will be like mine?)
Over the years, we have used the Jolly Jumper Snuggle Cover while baby-wearing. We walk to and from school nearly every day, in all kinds of weather. The Snuggle Cover has been perfect to keep my baby warm when we were out-of-doors, all the while she snuggled close to me in the Ergo carrier. It works really well with all kinds of carriers. I used the Snuggle Cover with a moby wrap too!
The Jolly Jumper Snuggle Cover has proven its worth by also working wonderfully well as a car-seat cover and blanket for the stroller. Clearly it is a versatile product. My “baby” is now age 3 and we have used it with her from infancy on. That means we have used it over 3 years and it is in like new condition. The Snuggle Cover has been through rain, snow, shopping outings, hundreds of walks/hikes, and so much more! Of course it has withstood regular washings in the washing machine so well! It is water-repellent, fleece lined, and just lovely all around.
Why am I writing about this illustrious baby product you ask? A good friend asked me about it recently outside of school as I was dropping off the two older kiddos. The following day another momma commented on it at after school pick-up! My youngest was snuggled into her stroller softly bundled up under the Jolly Jumper Snuggle Cover. Truth be told, I am asked about it frequently and am always urging people to check it out. I decided this was a great place to share my love of the Jolly Jumper Snuggle Cover. I just love sharing with my friends!
How does it compare?
I have seen other baby-wearing coat products advertised and I am sure they are lovely. The thing that I feel makes the Jolly Jumper Snuggle Cover a superior product to anything else I have seen is that is very versatile. While it works wonderfully for baby-wearing, it can be used in the car with a car seat or with the stroller too. Truth time, we have even used it with our sleds!
A baby-wearing coat isn’t going to offer that kind of varied use or longevity. A baby-wearing coat may be nice, but the window of use is so limited. The great part about the Jolly Jumper Snuggle Cover is that it can easily be shared with friends or passed down to another baby/parent. You don’t have to worry about what size Mom/Dad wears or how big or small the baby is because the Snuggle Cover works with all sizes!
If you know someone who spends time out-of-doors and has a baby or is going to have one soon, this would make a great gift!
