  • Why The Dad Shirt
    A Dad wearing his newborn baby will simply make your heart melt! The Lalabu Dad Shirt is the first babywearing shirt designed exclusively for dads. On its own, it's a sporty V-neck t-shirt. Slide baby into the cozy pouch, and it's a new dad's easiest way to bond with baby. Dads can enjoy their newborns and take babies on adventures right from the start. And since there's no learning curve — nothing to tie or wrap — the Dad Shirt is an easy way to win as a new dad. Made in the U.S.A.

    How It Works
    When designing the Dad Shirt, we were very intentional about making sure it met the needs of the newborn - to be close and secure to their dad in a position that's best for their growing body. Because of that, babies need to be upright facing toward the dad while in the pouch (tummy to tummy). The pouch is intended for newborns between 7 and 15 lbs. The shirt can also be worn without a baby, and no one will notice!

    How to Wear
    The Dad Shirt is perfect for layering in all seasons! Simply put on your Lalabu Dad Shirt as you would a regular t-shirt. Once you are comfortable, pick up your baby and place them in the pouch of the Dad Shirt. Your little one’s legs should be frogged beneath their bottom. If needed, pull up the extra support around baby’s shoulders.

    Fabric Composition
    Polyester // Rayon // Spandex blend.

    Available in Simple Gray and Pure Black.

    Why Purchase Direct on Lalabu.com?
    We are a small business founded by husband and wife team Brian and Keri. We offer exclusive sales and discounts to our website customers, up to 6 months to make size exchanges, and Customer Happiness Team support! We're also the creators of the babywearing shirt and this is the only safe source to purchase. Please be aware that counterfeit sites sell unsafe knock-offs of our products using our photography and videos, but lalabu.com is the only source to get a real Soothe Shirt online. Buy here to confidently get the genuine products!

    A Note on Pricing
    We first released the Soothe Shirt in 2013 for $75 and have worked hard since then to be able to offer them to you for lower prices. Since release, we have improved the quality by adding soft and stretchy modal bra panels, an adjustable head support, and an interior mesh panel for heat transfer. We’ve always used a high quality custom milled ponte roma knit for the main body fabric. This fabric has special qualities that allows the shirt to maintain form and strength over time without stretching out and naturally not wrinkle. We use the most secure stitching, like what you would find in outdoor climbing gear.

    Beyond the quality workmanship and materials, the shirts provide value by providing an alternative to a baby carrier, nursing top, and nursing bra --- all at less than half the price of a traditional baby carrier. We often get asked why we can’t sell them for less, and after working on the supply chain for the past seven years I can confidently say that it wouldn’t be possible to sell a quality and safe alternative for less than $49, even when making thousands of shirts at a time.

    Our goal is to make babywearing simple and accessible to everyone and so we will continue to design innovative products and work to get them to you at the best price. Right now, that is through our Bundle Special. It truly is an honor to create solutions that allow you to spend more time with your baby, so thank you and please enjoy your time together.

  • Please reach out to our Customer Happiness Team if you're unsure.  We're here to help!

    • Expect it to fit like a tailored shirt
    • Don’t size up to get a bigger pouch
    • Baby's head should be above your chest and high enough for you to kiss

  • How We Got Our Start
    We fell in love with babywearing while visiting family in Burkina Faso. Once home, we found that many parents feel intimidated to babywear themselves. So we created a new solution that is easy to use by anyone, anywhere.

Eye to Eye

My son and his 12 day old son gazing at each other in the Dad Shirt. They spent time snuggling too! Awesome!

Absolutely love it!

The material is strong and soft! I bought it for my husband as we are expecting our first baby and he can’t wait to use it!!


Ordered this shirt for my husband and he loves it. Perfect size and nice to carry the baby around the house while he gets stuff done. Love it!

And its stylish

Love having hands free at dinner, working and walking.

And... its comfortable
And... its stylish
And... it's worth it!

Dad shirt for the win

My husband teased me when I ordered this, but he now wears it practically daily. He loves it. Even though we have baby carriers, he prefers this shirt. It’s so easy to pop our kiddo in and then he can water plants, eat, and do a host of other things.

Great gift

I bought one for her and one for him as a baby gift with a stuffed animal hanging out of the pocket. It was definitely a hit!

Great Quality

We haven’t put a baby in it yet but the shirt is made of great quality! My husband wears a medium in everything and the medium fit perfectly. I got it as a birthday gift, I’m not due till November but he loved it!

New Grandson

We bought this shirt for our soon to be grandson so daddy, our son, could hold him close and have the connection that mommy has of holding him close.
The shirt was made of quality material and sized right. We are very excited to soon have a grandson to hold.

My husband loves it!!!

I bought this for my husband for his first fathers day. Hey lives in this shirt, and takes it off only for washing. Sometimes at night our baby gets a little fussy and this shirt is perfect for soothing our baby and putting her straight to sleep. He just walks around. This shirt is really well made, and we'll be sad when our baby hits the 10lb. limit and can no longer be put inside.

Great dad shirt

Husband loves his Lalabu shirt — it allows him to have his hands free to wash baby bottles ;) It’s soft and true to size. Flattering cut.
