VIJA-Design - The Skin-to-skin Cami & Bandeau Set with a solid back.
This Skin-to-Skin Cami has a solid back. Just slip it under any garment of your new mom wardrobe: t-shirt with scoop neck, wrap dresses, or crossover top.
It can also be worn with the the Bandeau to be hands-free. Just slip the Bandeau over the Cami, from lower hips to under the breast.
It is highly recommend to wear the Cami with the Bandeau to provide more support and more comfort (it easier to keep a nice "frog" position of baby). Here's how:
Pull down the Bandeau, place baby inside Cami. "Frog" Position: place baby on your shoulder (unstable head resting on the shoulder) and dragging his leg into opposite side front panel. Then transfer Baby the other side and do the same thing. Let slip the baby down inside, his bottom inside the "X". Fetal Position: just slide baby inside in this natural curled position, into the bottom of the "X".
Pull the fabric to extend on back and shoulders. Spread the fabric along the bottom up under the knees. The buttocks should be down slightly because of the weight, the knees should then be higher (about navel height). Open the neckline facing over the head to maintain a safe and comfortable position (check if baby looks comfortable!) Then softly pull up the Bandeau over him. Baby should now be securely and comfortably held in a "normal" position for a baby: slightly curved back to mom, knees up, head positioned with ease breathing...
Breastfeeding is possible in cradle position inside the Cami. You can also open the cross-over neckline or open under the bust.
The important measurement is the BUST. The balance is less important since the garment is stretchy. If you are in doubt, it is better to take a smaller size because this garment should fit snugly.
