A must for the birth of your baby!
Skin-to-skin contact (kangaroo care) immediately after birth helps stabilize the temperature of newborns and promotes the initiation of breastfeeding. Wear it to keep baby in the correct position on your chest when you lay by 45 degrees in bed or sitting in a chair.
The Kangaroo top 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.
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.
Made in Canada by Vija-Design. Patent pending. Fabric: soft 4-way stretch 94% cotton / 6% spandex jersey
Note: The care of premie, low-weight babies or with health problems should always be under the supervision of a qualified health professional. Make sure you have consulted prior to use garment.
