VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo t-shirt & Nursing Top Review and Giveaway

Skin to skin is very important. There are many benefits of kangaroo care, or skin to skin. Learn more here. I like to stay skin to skin with my babies for at least 4-6 weeks. With Bunny I made sure I was skin to skin for 6 weeks, especially since she was three weeks early. I knew I wanted to be skin to skin as much as possible with Baby Sister but was not sure how that would happen since I have Bunny to look after and chase after. I searched the internet for a baby wearing shirt and found VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt. I was so excited when I received my Jade VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt in the mail. I sent My Love a text, I couldn’t wait for him to get home to tell him! My excitement was immense!

There are so many things I love about VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt! First, I love the fact that VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt has sleeves! I try to be very modest and keep my shoulders covered. I have seen some skin to skin t shirts that look wonderful, but they don’t have sleeves. In order for me to be able to wear a shirt in public, I need sleeves. VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt also comes in amazingly gorgeous colors. I seriously want one in about four different colors. And I need them too!

VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt is VERY supportive. It acts as a post partum support for my stomach. I did not think I would like this feature because, with Bunny, I hated anything touching my stomach for months after my c section. After Baby Sister was born (4 days after to be exact) I put on my VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt and LOVED the snug feeling of my stomach being held. After having worn VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt I didn’t want to take it off! I wanted the amazing support for my stomach. When I first received my VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt I did think the material seemed very thick and hot and heavy. However, once I put it on I was pleasantly surprised at how light and airy it felt. I am still sweating like crazy (thank you post partum hormones) but I do not feel like I sweat any more while wearing my VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt than I do when I am not wearing it. I will gladly wear this shirt in the California summer heat.

The best feature of VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt is the ability to be skin to skin with Baby Sister out in public. I have taken Baby Sister out a few times since she has been born. I typically like to stay home for the first 6 weeks of a baby’s life, but I am finding having a vaginal birth is much easier to recover from and both Bunny and I need short outings. I don’t want anyone to touch Baby Sister, and I don’t want to spend a ton of time NOT being skin to skin with Baby Sister. VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt is the perfect solution for me! I can wear Baby Sister, which deters people from touching her and/or asking to hold her, AND I can be skin to skin with her! When I wear Baby Sister in my VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt, Baby Sister typically has on a diaper and a front button shirt. The front button shirt allows her back to be covered while her front is naked and skin to skin with mine. I absolutely LOVE being able to be out in public and still get the amazing benefits of having my baby skin to skin. Today I went to the grocery store wearing my VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt. Baby Sister was skin to skin. I loved it, she loved it, it was amazing!

A cheat sheet on the correct way to wear baby in the shirt

VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt is also great for around the house. It allows me to wear Baby Sister while being able to play with Bunny. And we are skin to skin! Since Baby Sister was born, whenever I have gone out of the house I am wearing my VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt. Seriously, my friends, family and neighbors probably thing I only own one shirt. That is how often I wear it. I definitely need more!

VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt is meant to be worn with a baby 15 pounds and under. This is typically the size of a four month old. Baby Sister currently weighs 10 pounds and fits perfectly. VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt allows Baby Sister to sit correctly, with her legs in a froggy style. VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt is very easy to use. I simply slide Baby Sister into my shirt and reap the benefits of being skin to skin. Taking Baby Sister out is a little harder, but still easy. I have yet to flash anyone while taking Baby Sister out! To take Baby out I simply pull the sides apart and push her bum out while sliding her up and out.

Once Baby Sister has reached 15 pounds and I can no longer wear her in my VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt, I can still wear my shirt! VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt is GREAT for breastfeeding. I have comfortably and confidently nursed Baby Sister while wearing this shirt. I love how flattering VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt is. Have I mentioned I LOVE the color options? VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt is useful from birth and beyond. VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt is great to wear after you are done nursing! It doesn’t scream, “I am a breastfeeding shirt!” like some of my breastfeeding clothes do.

Most people do a double take when they see me wearing my VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt with Baby Sister. All of the parents and grandparents comment on how great it looks and what a wonderful idea it is. I have had so many people ask me what it is called and where I bought it. I promise, you will not regret buying a VIJA designs skin to skin Kangaroo T shirt. Baby Sister is a month old and I still use this shirt daily. My only regret is having just one of these shirts!

If you are pregnant or have a newborn, I HIGHLY suggest you buy a VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt. Or two or three. I don’t have many “must have” baby items, but this is definitely one of them! Especially if you have other/older children. You can buy VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo T shirt online for $70.50 at Milk & Baby. If you prefer a tank top, you can buy a VIJA Designs Skin to Skin Kangaroo halter top, tub top or long sleeve top. They even have a skin to skin shirt for Dads! Awesome!

  1. Wow I love this! Wish I knew of these thing a when H was born! I will have to keep this in mine with my next!

  2. I would love the Jade color for when our baby girl gets here in July 🙂

    • I have found they run true to size. They are meant to be a bit tight as they are a baby wearing shirt. I comfortably wore mine from immediately after birth until my baby reached the weight limit, around 3-4 months. They have a great exchange policy. If you purchase one, try it on and it does not fit you can send it back and exchange it for a different size.

What do you think?
