The skin-to-skin contact (kangaroo care) immediately after birth
helps stabilize the temperature of newborn and promotes the initiation
of breastfeeding. Wear it when you lay by 45 degrees in bed or sitting
in a chair.
The Kangaroo tube with halter strap is made from a soft, lightweight
and stretchy cotton / spandex jersey for additional comfort for mom and
baby - and is flexible enough that baby can move and seek for the
breast. Semi-side seams with elastic shirring prevents baby from
slipping sideways and follow the shape of the baby without unnecessary
pressure. The double band at the bottom and inner support to the
buttocks / lower back prevents baby from slipping down. Just slide the
halter straps over the head to breastfeed easily.
That strap gives an
additional support, especially if you wear your baby when sitting in a
chair but it's not a "hands free" baby carrier so if you get up you must
have a free hand to ensure additional protection and support. Weight limit is 15 lbs.
This item runs a little small. If you have a question about your size it is always better to order up. However, the fit should be snug. Also the bottom of the shirt hits a little higher than your hips, so it should not touch a c-section scar.
