**These are once-washed size exchanges. This means they were exchanged by a customer to get a different size and then washed and repacked by our team. Other than being washed once they are in new condition. All sales are final on warehouse sale items. No returns or exchanges. You can still bundle warehouse items with new items in our shop. **
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.
Place your baby upright, tummy to tummy in the front pocket of your Dad Shirt. Ensure they are within kissing distance and that their legs are bent frog-style under their bottom. If needed, pull the pouch extender panel around your baby’s shoulders.
Once inside the Dad Shirt, your baby will be calmed by their dad’s heartbeat, body rhythms and scent. Tucked safely up against their dad’s chest, most will drift to sleep or be content to observe the world around them. (It’s a sight that will melt your heart!)
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.
Brian and Keri, Lalabu Founders
