I am so excited to share my Lalabu Sooth Shirt review with you! This has been one of the best things I got with baby #2 that I wish I would have had with my Roy!
When Roy (baby #1) was born I got a couple baby carriers to use. I felt like I could never really use most of them until he got a little bigger because he just wasn’t super supported in any of the carriers. (And he’s a tiny kid so it felt like forever!).

When I had Penelope (baby #2), I was sent a Lalabu Soothe Shirt to try out. I got to start using it when she was only a month old (right when I got it)! My favorite thing about it that it’s the easiest way to carry your newborn around. It’s literally a tank top that you can slide your baby in…genius!
To be real, the first time I put it on I thought I was going to be stuck in it. 🙂 After the first time, though, it gets a lot easier to put on and take off. It’s easiest if you pull it on by stepping into it rather than putting it over your head.
After you wear it a few times (and as your baby gets a bit older) it gets easier and easier to put on.
How Lalabu Began
One of my favorite things about Lalu is how it began. The owners, Brian and Keri, went on a trip to Africa where they saw babies worn on all the mom’s backs.
I’ve actually also spent a ton of time in Africa it the baby wearing is one of my favorite things to witness! Everyone from sisters to mamas to grandmas are all carrying babies everywhere – all by a piece of fabric (yes, it always makes me a little nervous ha!).
Brian and Keri knew the importance of baby wearing but also knew how intimidating it is to a lot of parents. There’s a million different carriers but they’re often so confusing with buckles or a million videos on how to wrap it on you to actually wear your baby.
So they decided to make the clothing the gear! That way you don’t need to learn how to wear it, you just wear it!
New Lives Giving
The crew at Lalabu also knows the importance of giving back and gives 2% to support parents and babies. Best of all, the customers can choose how to give back! You can support adoption, empower women entrepreneurs, fund conception assistance or invest in startups doing good.
Soothe Shirt Features
- Safely supports your baby. The soothe shirt has an adjustable head support and pouch extender.
- Built in nursing bra.
- Breathable material (the mesh panel keeps both mom and baby from overheating). This is ideal for when I’m out on long walks!
- The soothe shirt can be worn between 7 and 15lbs. For some moms this is only a few weeks, for me it’s months and months! You can also wear the soothe shirt it as a nursing tank the entire time your nursing!
- They recommend you keep a hand on your baby’s head while they’re in the soothe shirt to keep it supported.
- Made in the U.S.A.
Why I Love It
The Lalabu keeps Penelope nice and snug and she passes right out within a few minutes of being put inside! It’s super easy! And with 2 kiddos under 2 I need things that help make my life easier!
Since it looks like a tank top, I wear it with a cardigan or sweater when I leave the house. It’s an easy way to carry Penelope and have a free hand to corral Roy (and when I was nursing I could nurse in it as well). I love it for places like the library because Roy goes from activity to activity or book to book. P gets all cozy in the Lalabu and chase after Roy! I don’t baby wears every single day but I’m really thankful for the times I’ve been able to use it!
Other Lalabu Products
Lalabu also came out with a Dad Soothe Shirt AND leggings!! We’ve never tried out the dad Lalabu t-shirt but it looks amazing. It comes in both grey and black. You use the Lalabu t-shirt exactly how you would the sooth shirt. Put it on, once you’re comfortable slide your baby down into the front panel. Make sure their legs are in the frog position and that their head is supported. Easy peasy!
I have tried out the Lalabu leggings and they’re amazing! They come both in full length and crop – I own the full length. They have a unique high waisted compression panel that sucks everything in which is absolutely amazing for postpartum. They’re super soft, wash well and are some of my favorite leggings!
They also recently came out with maternity leggings. I wish they would’ve had those when I was pregnant because I definitely would’ve picked up a pair.
