The Sleeveless Mei Tai Wrap T-shirt is an elegant nursing garment that also allows you to "wear your baby" (carry your baby) skin-to-skin (kangaroo care) until about 14 lbs (6,5 kg) for the cotton/spandex jersey version . Baby can in fetal position or frog position, legs are loose. Ajustable front panels gives more support when needed.
More useful than a regular garment! In addition to its sleek look, find great comfort and a versatile integrated skin-to-skin baby carrier you can wear from birth until approximately 15 lbs (7 kg). It also allows easy breastfeeding by pulling neckline or lift the layer for even more discretion. Solidly made in Canada in a high density jersey 94% cotton / 6% spandex. Back length from shoulder: 26 inches (68 cm).
Large fit, please choose a smaller size if in doubt (garment should be tight).
Patent pending. Made in Canada.
How to place your baby inside the garment:
1) Unbutton (regular style) or detach the string (Ultra-lightweight style) at the upper front to slide the baby inside with more ease.
2) Sit baby inside the front "pouch", letting out the legs on each side. If baby is very small, you can also let the legs inside, in fetal position. Always hold the head during the operation. Attach the top and place his/her head in order to be comfortable with an open airway.
3) Slide one wrap pannel under the opposite leg of the baby, making sure to support his/her bottom. Then do the same on the other side. Adjust the tension of the fabric to provide comfort and support to the baby. Through these panels, you can also bring the baby up slightly if the he/she is a little heavy or is very small.
4) After crossing the wrap pannel in the back, tie it at the front with a strong flat knot. The ideal height for the skin to skin kangaroo care? up to ... kissable!
You will find here below (bottom of page) the standard size chart as a guide. Obviously, your size might not be standard. The important measure is the BUST. The balance is less important since the garment is stretch. If you are in doubt, it is better to take a smaller size because this garment should fit snugly.
