New for 2018, the Lenny Lamb babywearing sweatshirt is soft, warm knit fabric. Easily slip the hoodie over you and baby in a front or a back carry. It is not a baby carrier but is used over a safe baby carrier. You will stay warm all season with baby in an upright position on your chest or back!
This babywearing hoodie works with most soft carriers whether wraps, ring slings, buckle carriers, etc.
Works with small babies or toddlers.
Gender neutral so it can be used by men or women.
Size UP ONE SIZE. Scroll down for sizing info from Size small to Size 6X.
The beautiful accents on the Lenny Lamb Babywearing Sweatshirt are made from their beautifully woven wrap fabric. If you want to get a wrap or carrier that matches your sweatshirt, let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
THE SNOOD – The wrap fabric snood adds both fashion and function as it is designed to be used as a warm hood for you with your baby in a front or back carry. The ingenious design allows you to use it as a hood in either position. Or leave it bunched for style and keep your neck warm on chilly days!
POCKETS – The beautiful wrap fabric panel over baby also provides pockets for you when you use the babywearing sweatshirt over a front carry. Additional discreet pockets are found on the back of the sweatshirt so you can keep your hands warm in a back carry, too.
Babywearing Sweatshirt in a Front Carry
First put your baby in a safe baby carrier high on your chest. Here’s how to use a long wrap for a front carry.
Now put the sweatshirt on over your head just like a regular hoodie. The wrap fabric panel should be in the front so it goes over baby.
Slip baby’s head through the head hole and then poke your own head through the top. Bunch the really long fabric of the snood around your neck attractively.
That’s it – you’re ready to go! You are warm and you look great 🙂
Here’s Lenny Lamb’s video for putting a sweatshirt on over a front carry. This video uses their old, discontinued fleece design but it is similar enough to see how you can do it in the new improved version.
NOTE: Your 2018 version babywearing hoodie will have a zipper on each side. Unzip before putting it on to make it even easier to get over you both. Zip them up after you get it on.
If you want to use the hood, pull up the back of your snood to cover your head. Use the pocket openings in the wrap fabric panel over baby to keep your hands warm, just like with a traditional hoodie.
When using it over a back carry, just put the sweatshirt on backwards so the panel is in the back. Pull the sweatshirt down so baby’s head pops out the head hole. Then work your own head out through the snood.
The ingenious snood design works perfectly as your hood when worn backwards as well as forward.
While the wrap fabric pocket is over baby on your back, you will find additional pockets on the sides of the sweatshirt for use when using it in a back carry.
