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.

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!

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 pouch extender around baby’s shoulders.

For Dad Shirts, please order the same size as your “normal shirt” size. Expect it to fit like a tailored shirt.

    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.
