THE MEI TAI SLEEVELESS WRAP T-SHIRT


The Sleeveless Mei Tai Wrap T-shirt (#VA008) 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 feotal position or "frog" position, legs are loose. Ajustable front panels gives more support when needed.

NOT A BABY CARRIER.

How to place your baby inside the garment:

SEE VIDEO:

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 vertically 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. Fabric must cover baby's back & shoulders, face must be uncovered. 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!

 

 

Precautions you must take when wearing the baby:

-Always wash the garment before carrying a newborn.

-Make sure baby is in upright vertical position. Shoulder and back must be supported. Face uncovered. Garment should be tight enough to avoid too "relaxed" back (too rounded back), and check if support is well spread from below the knee to the other.

-Always make sure the baby is breathing normally, the airway must never be obstructed.

-Pay attention to your new dimension, you must not get caught in the door frame with the baby!

-Don't sleep, don't do sports or cooking with baby inside the garment. Avoid any situation where a fall could occur.

-Make sure the garment is always in good condition. If a seam is about to open, discontinue the use of carrier and please contact us.

* New garment, non-threadbare and non-broken only. Garments more than two years old, or which have worn small tears should not be used to support a baby.

This garment is made of high density cotton / spandex jersey. For more information on this fabric and its maintenance/care, please click here.
