I’m a big believer in Kangaroo Care and the benefits that it has. I’m sure you’ve heard some of the stories that include a baby that the doctors said had passed away when the mother insisted that she hold the baby to moan and love her. That baby lives now. Then of course there is my own story of my little Peanut being in the NICU for a month after her emergency birth. After we left the hospital my daughter never had an SVT attack. There were lots of cuddling going on during our visits and when we got home. Powerful stuff. So I was thrilled when Lalabu reached out to me to share their awesome product.
Obviously, my daughter is too big to snuggle in my arms with me. She’s about to turn 2 (holy crap that went by fast). But, Serious Krystyn is reviewing one with her new baby. But if I had known about this shirt when she was born, I’d have one in ever color. It’s that awesome. Instead of having to wrap your baby every time you want to wear them, you can simply place them inside your Soothe Shirt. I can only imagine what life would have been like if we had a set of these in the NICU to wear.
The Soothe Shirt is a tank top that comes in 3 different colors. In the front of the shirt is a pouch that you can place your baby easily into for simple and quick wearing. It also has a built in nursing bra. You can layer it in the cooler months. I can’t get over how simple it is.
Another amazing thing I learned about Lalabu, the company is named to honor the woman in who taught them how to wrap they babies on a trip to Burkina Fuso. Even more heartwarming is the way they give back, We work one day each week to help women in Atlanta and give $1 of each sale back to women in Africa.
I want you to experience the awesome Lalabu shirt for yourself. Win one below!

I love that it is so versatile. I loved wearing my daughter around the house in our Moby when she was a newborn, but it was a pain to have to wrap every time and had SO much extra fabric. Now as we are preparing for baby #2 and I have a toddler to keep up with this looks like a much better alternative!
I like that it provides a carrier that is always close at hand. I remember wearing slings around my waist as a belt and then reposition them when I needed them after I had my first baby. This looks like it takes one step out of getting ready, which will come in handy with baby #2.
