THE SKIN-TO-SKIN KANGAROO T-SHIRT (#VB001):

This lovely and trendy Asian-inspired long version t-shirt is as easy to slip in – and out of – as your favorite t-shirt... And it is a nice nursing t-shirt!

     

In bonus: the built-in kangaroo care (skin-to-skin) support for new born, up to about 2-3 months old baby (so about 15lbs - 7kg) with mobility. No clips, no tie, no velcro, nothing lying on the floor. No more macramé! ...And full coverage...


How to know if the shirt is the right size when trying? Easy ... Look at yourself in the mirror. If the garment is flattering and follows the body, not too loose, not too tight, so it is perfect!


The Skin-to-skin Kangaroo T-shirt fit is rather adjusted (required for good support!). It also features a built-in post-partum light support which improves the silhouette where needed.

VERY IMPORTANT: That inside support band should be fitted on parent's body.

 

 

Then, you can easily and gently slip Baby in it, as with any other stretch wrap. The stretchy side shirring adds comfort to mother and baby.

Baby’s back and bum are supported by 3 strips of stretch fabric for a strong - but soft - tight fit. Baby can safely fall asleep, thanks to the "head restraint" system (stretch neckline facings above baby's head).

The Skin-to-Skin Kangaroo T-shirt is ethically made in Canada of Oeko-tex certified good quality high density 4-way stretch cotton / spandex jersey to ensure new mother’s confidence to hold baby skin to skin up to about 15lb baby. This is a cotton garment, some precautions should be taken to keep it beautiful for long. For more details, click here.

EASY BREASTFEEDING

 Another big advantage, this t-shirt allows a quick and discreet breastfeeding without holes or slits, even for twins synchronized for lunch! You can therefore appreciate it throughout the nursing period – even long after Junior is too heavy for the integrated carrier.

  

CAUTION: We do not recommend leaving your baby inside the shirt to breastfeed, because:

1) breastfeeding a newborn is a learning and sometimes difficult adaptation. Put all odds on your side by not forcing your newborn into a specific stuck position. Do not put yourself any extra pressure, try different positions and choose the one that is most comfortable for you and your baby - outside the shirt.

2) Putting baby in  "cradle" position inside the shirt is a risk of suffocation. Don't do it. NEVER leave a sleeping baby in cradle position in this shirt - or any other baby carrier.

 

This product is ethically made in Canada and is available from size XS to 2XL. Patented product.

HOW IT WORKS

Simply slip baby inside the front "X",  as a regular baby wrap. IMPORTANT: THE BABY MUST BE COMPLETELY INSIDE THE T-SHIRT, up to shoulder, sitting inside the "X", SKIN AGAINST SKIN, not into the front pannel of the garment.

How to place the baby:

While baby is well positioned, he/she will fall asleep snuggled up against you. Make sure that:

-BABY'S HEAD IS AT KISS HEIGHT - THE NECK AND THE HEAD should be SUPPORTED to avoid bending.

-BABY'S AIRWAYS ARE ALWAYS CLEAR AND HE/SHE IS BREATHING NORMALLY (you see the nose).

-Make sure INSIDE SUPPORT BAND (at the waist) IS WELL ADJUSTED AND FITTED TO THE PARENT'S BODY

-MAKE SURE BABY IS IN NATURAL POSITION (CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS)

-THE THREE LAYERS OF FABRIC COVERING ITS BUTT, BACK AND SHOULDERS, fabric stretched up to under-knee to distribute weight and avoid pressure points - and avoid crooked position (baby's chin should never touch his/her body).

-You KEEP A HAND ON BABY IF YOU MOVE FAST OR BEND

PATENTED

NATURAL PHYSIOLOGICAL POSITION

The International Hip Dysplasia Institute (IHDI) acknowledges the Vija-Design Skin to Skin T-shirt as "hip-healthy" products.

Make sure baby's legs are in "M" position (knees raised) as seen in the image.

NOTE: We collect information on all beneficial effects of skin-to-skin babywearing, in recommended "M" position, for babies with hip problems. Click here for more details

SIZE CHART

You will find here below (bottom of page) the standard size chart as a guide. Obviously, your size might not be standard. The important measure is the BUST. The balance is less important since the garment is stretch. If you are in doubt, it is better to take a smaller size because this garment should fit snugly. You can also refer to your bra size (actual, not before pregnancy):

32A-32B-32C-32D-32DD-34A-34B = X-Small

32DD-32F-34C-34D-34DD-36A-36B = Small

34DD-34F-36C-36D-36DD-38A = Medium

36DD-36F-38B-38C-38D-38DD-40A-40B = Large

38DD-38F-38G-40C-40D-40DD-40F-42B-42C = X-Large
