So, I spotted this one this morning:

Whilst at first you may think 'blimey', I can actually see the logic! Anyone tried this? Do you reckon it leads to healthier children?

Are we all just paranoid about someone nicking our babies...!?

Yep, that was what happened to me and my sister in the 1960s in Yorkshire. Good long naps outside everyday, and we were both born in November. My sister was born in 1962, and we all know what sort of a winter that was!!

Don't think we benefitted from those lovely, high-tech materials to keep us warm either. We had wool blankets, knitted cardis and a silver cross pram.

Not sure whether we were healthier or not: I suffered from dreadful tonsillitis and chilblains all through my childhood!! But I suppose we do both like to be outdoors even in the winter.

My sister now lives in Sweden and we have visited her in December, Jan, Feb, March, April … winter does last a long time! I think if you live there, you have to be used to be outside when it's cold. Three and four year old children gather at their nurseries when it is still dark in the morning and play in a sub-zero, floodlit playground until it's time to go inside. It's just how life is lived in the winter.

My three all slept outside in their nice warm pram winter and summer - however I never put them out in fog or rain which we seem to get a lot of just lately. We were given a M&P pram for our granddaughters to use when they come, but it has nowhere to attach a harness, I wouldn't leave a baby without strapping it in.

I used to put my baby outside in her carry cot on our flat balcony. We lived in Germany and in winter the temperatures were sometimes around freezing. I think it made her more resistant to germs.

Mine slept much better outside so I used to walk him round the block he was asleep then park him at the patio doors, I thought that was just normal? Will do the same with no 2 as well.
