What to buy at Christmas for the new dad who has everything?
How about a baby-wearing t-shirt? We stumbled across these over at the Huffington Post, which reports:
'But today in “things we can’t stop swooning over” is this surprisingly relaxed and breathable t-shirt that allows dads to carry their newborns around in a delightfully tiny and stretchy kangaroo-like pouch. And yes, it’s as adorable as it sounds.'
You can buy one here* for $75 and they ship to international locations, including the UK for around $10 extra – it'll take two to five weeks to arrive.
The Lalabu website describes this as "the first babywearing shirt for dads and claims to make it easy to win as a new dad:
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.
Features of the Dad Shirt include a sporty v-neck design, breathable mesh panel to let you feel and bond with the baby, and an adjustable head support and pouch extender.
I wasn't sure about these at first – why not just use a baby sling, was my first thought, but the more I've read about it, the more I think it's a cool idea. We'd love to hear what you think about this. Would you buy one for the baby daddy in your life? What do you think he'd make of it?
