  • Why The Soothe Shirt
    Don’t worry, Mama — Babywearing your newborn doesn’t have to be complicated and overwhelming! That’s why we made the Soothe Shirt just for you. The Lalabu Soothe Shirt is a babywearing tank with built-in nursing bra for mom and cozy carrying pouch for baby. It includes an inner mesh panel for breathability, an adjustable head support and pouch extender, and a softer-than-ever bra panel for all day comfort. The Soothe Shirt is available in Pure Black, Simple Gray, and other limited edition styles. Made in the U.S.A.

    How It Works
    When designing the Soothe Shirt, we were very intentional about making sure it met the needs of the newborn - to be close and secure to their mom in a position that's best for their growing body. Because of that, babies need to be upright facing toward the mom while in the pouch (tummy to tummy). The pouch is intended for newborns between 7 and 15 lbs. You can wear it as a nursing tank daily the entire time you breastfeed. For many mamas, that's a year or more!

    How to Wear
    The Soothe Shirt is perfect for layering in all seasons! Simply step into your Lalabu Soothe Shirt to put it on. You do not need to wear a separate bra as the Soothe Shirt features a built-in nursing bra and support panel for breastfeeding. Once you are comfortable, pick up your baby and place them in the pouch of the Soothe Shirt. Your little one’s legs should be frogged beneath their bottom. If needed, pull up the pouch extender panel around baby’s shoulders. 

    Fabric Composition
    Polyester // Rayon // Spandex blend.  The nursing bra panel is created from a super soft custom modal jersey.

    Available in Pure Black, Simple Gray, and Limited Editions Serene Green and Calm Blue.

    Soothe Shirt Sizing Guide

    • Don’t size up to get a bigger pouch
    • Baby's head should be above your breasts and high enough for you to kiss
    • If it’s snug and comfy on mom after delivery, it’s the best size!


  • 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.

Love it so much!!

All moms (and dads) need the lalabu soothe shirt! So helpful for baby and getting things done with multiple kiddos! The company is AMAZING - so glad to support such an incredible family! Really wish I'd had the lalabu with my first two boys!

Customer Service is Great

Originally ordered a Medium and realized it was going to be way way too small although med is my normal size. Reached out on the fb page and got help immediately! Returned my shirt easily and got a credit, so excited to try my new larger shirt. Make sure you read the size chart! I didn’t but it says if your normal size is an m in some instances, you need an L.

Soothe shirt for the win!

A girlfriend recommended the Soothe Shirt for my second child, and I'm so glad I listened! I purchased both the grey and the black Soothe Shirts, and I wish I had two more. My newborn son needs to be close to me in order to sleep, so the Soothe Shirt is exactly what we need to give him the closeness he needs while giving me a hands-free break to tend to my toddler and myself! Be sure to follow the fit guide - it's not intuitive what size you would need, and without using that guide I would've easily ordered the wrong size. I'm 5'2", 130 lbs and measure 31 and 38 under and at fullest part of bust, respectively. I normally wear a small shirt, but the medium Soothe Shirt works great for us.

I really wanted to love it

First of all, you should order a size up. I measured myself and picked from the sizing chart based on that, still too small. Great customer service though! Once baby arrived we tried it immediately (my husband ordered one as well). It was great, we wore our baby for the first 3 weeks. She liked it and it was way easier than a stroller or car seat. Great quality, easy to use, and the incorporated nursing bra is the best! The problem? the material is too thick, and summer in Texas makes it imposible to wear it outside. The second problem, after week 3, our baby doesn't want to be in it anymore, maybe too hot? too tight? we don't know (she does like to be carried on different types of carriers, like ring sling). So, we liked it at first, but spending over $100 (for both t-shirts) for a coupe of weeks is not worth it, in my opinion.

Wanted to love it

I originally ordered a large based on the size chart but it was way too small so I exchanged it for an XL. I’m still early on in my pregnancy but it still feels uncomfortably snug and I’m worried it won’t fit with my postpartum chest. I feel like this shirt was made for women with smaller chests. I will probably be selling or returning my shirt and I’m disappointed because I love the concept and really wanted it to work. The shirt itself is nice quality, sadly I just don’t think it will work for me.

Hi, Amy! I would love to help you. We do recommend waiting until after your baby is born to decide which size you need, but we allow exchanges for up to six months past your purchase! Feel free to reach out to support@lalabu.com for more help!
Nice quality

I like the quality of the shirt, but I think its way too tight. I also don't like that I won't get much use out of it for the price. My baby grew fast- it was 7 lb 15 oz at birth but at 2 months he is already 13 lbs and the shirt is way too snug for him. Baby likes the dad shirt a lot better.

Pay attn to size chart

I ordered a size small at about 18 weeks pregnant as I’m on the petite side and most maternity size small’s I’m swimming in, but I couldn’t breathe in it so I’ll be exchanging it for a medium.

Lalabu amazing shirt!

Love my carrier shirt! Allows me to get things done and keep baby girl
Close without all those extra straps from
Other complicated carriers. I even wear it out and can style it with a cute over shirt! Amazing purchase and recommend!

Where was this for my first baby?!

I love my lalabu shirt. It’s the most comfortable “carrier” I have tried. You don’t have to lug extra things around and baby is very well supported. I have
Recommend it it to all my pregnant and Mom friends. It has made life a lot easier especially with a toddler at home as well. It was quite tight initially post partum but seemed to loosen with wear and dropping a few post baby pounds. As baby grows it seems to be getting snug again but not in a bad way.

Amazing Gift

The perfect gift for a new parent, baby like it as well.
