We tried to wait to review Lalabu til our new baby arrived (#3 is due in 2 weeks!) really, we did, but it was just impossible – this product (and company) is too special not to mention asap! The Lalabu Soothe Shirt® is a stylish top for mom, cozy pouch for baby, and nursing bra all-in-one — made in the USA.  So it’s babywearing 2.0, easier than putting on a carrier, comfier than strapping on an elaborate wrap, and has the bonus of making breastfeeding a snap. If you have a friend having a baby, this is the ultimate gift that nobody else will be cool enough to buy her. To sweeten the already beautiful magic of this one-of-a-kind product,  it’s a woman/ momtrepeneur owned company that gives back in heart and finance. And don’t worry, sister Rainbow Bright, it comes in colors other than black.

Keri – mom to Levi and Founder of Lalabu – created this company after a family trip to Burkina Faso, Africa in 2009. She was in the village of Djibasso staying with Lalabu, mother to 7 including newborn twins.  Like many moms in the USA, Lalabu was a working mom and needed a way to keep her children close and comforted but with the option to get things done.  After Lalabu saw Keri’s intrigue, she taught Keri to wear her son on her back the same way she did.  Keri was amazed at how easy and comfortable it was, and it fueled a desire to start a business that was about more than just profit, but close to the ethos of babywearing.  Keri named her business Lalabu in her honor and created the 2% For Moms giving model.  Simply put – Lalabu gives 2% of all sales back to moms in Africa, supporting mom entrepreneurs through micro-finance.  Her team also volunteers one week each year to help women in need.

  1. This is brilliant!!! I’m a busy Mommy to a 2 1/2 year old and a 2 week old and this would make my life so much easier. Thanks for telling us about this fabulous product.!

  2. Congrats on your bun in the oven!! :D
    I just gave birth to my second kiddo in January and would luuuuuurve to try out this innovative baby/momma top! It looks and sounds super cool and convenient! Thanks for the amazing giveaway! xoxo

  3. molly wadzeck kraus says:

    This is so awesome! Thanks for sharing. What a unique and useful product. It’s often difficult getting a carrier or wrap on and off for my newborn while wrangling an active 2 year old. This would be so great to have- would make life a lot easier for wearing and nursing!

  4. Kirsty Soo says:

    This is a brilliant design and would be absolutely perfect for me and my next bub, due in April. I will be able to comfort her, feed her and give her a 4th trimester, while still being able to tend to my 3 year old! It looks even more convenient and easy to access than a baby carrier or sling! Thank you for this opportunity to win one.

  5. Britney Lovett says:

    I love this product because this is a perfect blend of baby and moms needs. You can wear it as a stylish shirt and nurse your baby at the same time. I love the extra functionality. You can still wear it even when your baby outgrows it. Also, I like the company gives 2% of proceeds back to moms in Africa. It’s nice to know the philanthropic nature of the people I am buying from.

  6. Sammie says:

    I am expecting my little one in June and I would really love to try this carrying shirt! I love being active, especially in the summer months! I would love this!

  7. Kim says:

    What a great product and a beautiful mission. I’m looking forward to carrying my baby come June and would love this option!

  8. Rachel says:

    What a cool product! I have a friend I’d like to give this too. She teaches aerial classes and this would be perfect for her to use so she can keep her baby close while teaching others to fly!

  9. Cari Newton says:

    I would really love to try this baby wear on shirt! My first baby is due in June. And I think it would be great to snuggle my baby while having my hands free doing the things that I need to do to get work done. I am already a long time liker & follower on fb & pinterest. I am not on Twitter but I will head over to instagram now. Thanks for all the great info. I have been enjoying it for years.

  10. Carolyn says:

    I would love to try this with my first baby! Looks so comfortable for mama and baby and so convenient and will make all the multitasking a little easier!

  11. melissa says:

    This would be great for me as I’m having my second. Great way to keep the baby close

  12. Rachel Altork says:

    My sister survived thyroid cancer when she was a teenager, has a home with all types of resumed and farm animals, is in a rock band with her husband, and is now pregnant with her 5th child. She is as natural as she can manage and gives her all to her children. I know she would love to try this out with her new baby!

  13. Rachel Hardin says:

    My daughter, Cypress Wolf, loves to nurse and be held close all day long! She is a few months old and I wish I had known about your product when I first welcomed her to the world- at home in our own bed :) So many wraps and carriers are such a production to get on and get your precious newborn settled. Cypress would love to snuggle close in this top. I want to try it out and send it to every pregnant woman I meet as a “must have” after birth!

  14. Linda Zucker says:

    I love wearing my son yet some baby carriers aren’t terribly comfortable with my huge breasts. The rest of me isn’t so large so the Lalabu may actually work for me.

  15. Amanda j. says:

    Wow. How perfect! Would love to try this with my new little one due in May while I take care of life with a preschooler and toddler. Have a feeling Id need a set of these!

  16. Amanda says:

    I am a kind mama expecting in October and want to provide only the best for my little cub when it comes into the world.

  17. An says:

    Great idea….it’s brilliant. Why didn’t anyone think of this sooner?

  18. Sydni says:

    My sister is having her 3rd baby! With a 8 and 5 year to care for too she is going to need some hands-free time. The Lalabu seems perfect to still keep baby3 close and help the others with whatever they need!!
