    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.

    Styles
    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.

Stamp of Approval

I bought this as a Christmas present for my husband in anticipation of our daughter due in March. He loves it! We tested it out over the holiday with our 3-month-old niece and the feel and fit was spot on. My husband is slender and typically wears a size M fitted shirt so we went with a size M. Customer service was quick to respond about sizing. Thank you, Lalabu!

My husband loves this shirt

I got this shirt for my husband for Christmas, he loves having the baby in it and spending time with his hands free. It is simpler than the wraps and great for bonding. Thinking of ordering another for when this one is being washed!

Best Christmas gift

I bought a Dad shirt for my husband. He stayed home for the first two weeks after our girl was born and he did a lot in the house. That shirt made it possible for him to sooth her and get things done without being compromised.
The size fit perfectly!

My son’s Christmas wish!

My son and his wife are expecting their first baby. When I asked him what he wanted for Christmas he said “the DAD SHIRT” so I can bond with my baby!!!! As it turned out his wife got him one too and now has 2!! He is so happy!!

Helping out Mobility Impaired Parents!

I bought this for my husband for Christmas. Our Zoe is due in February, so he hasn’t been able to try his on with our newborn and I haven’t tried mine on yet. But he loves it, and his mom is happy too! We are both mobility impaired and we are looking forward to this helping us out a lot! We can’t wait to use this!

Dad loves it

Picked this up as a Christmas present for the husband. We’re not expecting our first until April but having this ready and available helps him to feel less nervous and anxious about dropping his baby! Love it already!!

We Placed a Second Order for More!

My husband loved his Dad Shirt so much we went back and ordered two more so he could always have a clean one handy. It is so much easier to use than our complicated baby carriers and our little one loves being so close to daddy! The shirt is flattering and machine washable, which is always a plus!

Awesome shirt.

Great quality. Size I ordered for my husband ended up being too small but the exchange process is simple so that’s helpful! Excited to see this in use!
