Lalabu Soothe Shirt

I've always been a big fan of baby-wearing.  What's better than holding your baby close to you, calming them down in a comfortable and loving way, and also being hands free to stay busy and active?  When Andrew was a baby, I loved using several different wraps and carriers.
They were great!


BUT, when Ellie was born, and I was given the chance to try out the Lalabu Soothe Shirt,
I was so excited!  The concept of a stylish shirt that you can wear, that can also hold your baby was genius to me;
I loved the idea of no wrapping and no tricky assembly required.
The Lalabu tank also works great as a nursing top, so it can be worn, used, and loved for many months even after the baby outgrows the pouch.

The first time I put the tank on, I could not get over how comfortable and flattering it was!  I was just 1 week postpartum, so I loved the wide waistband that "sucked" me in.  The soft and thick material is just perfect for layering or wearing alone.  Ellie was awake when I carefully put her in the front pocket (which takes less than 30 seconds), and within minutes, she was fast asleep.  I loved the fact that she immediately felt secure and safe, and it was a perfect fit!  I have since worn the Soothe Shirt almost every day for taking walks, running errands, and relaxing at home.
Because I'll be chasing after a toddler now too, the fact that I can soothe Ellie in a hands-free way is so practical and essential for me.

If any of y'all are new mommies, mommies-to-be, or simply know someone who is expecting a baby, be sure to check out the Lalabu website and Soothe Shirt!  
Also, you would be supporting a great cause!  Lalabu gives 2% of all sales back to moms in Africa (where Lalabu learned baby-wrapping techniques), supporting mom entrepreneurs through micro-finance!

Happy Friday, loves!  Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
We are gearing up for a few days without my parents (eeek!); wish us luck!

Because I can't help myself, here's a new favorite pic of the little one:
Thank you Amy for capturing this!
