You don’t need to handle the baby in a wrap or a carrier. When you are using babywearing hoodie or jacket, the baby doesn’t need any special warm clothes. Just add another layer to what you usually wear at home. You will need warmer clothes only for head, neck, hands, and feet. Functional merino wool outfit can be useful for both of you.
