Moms are constantly looking for ways to make their lives easier, and though a typical baby carrier gives a parent the option of carrying their child with two free hands, this simple invention may give other brands a run for their money. Free of clips, straps, and buttons, this baby carrier from Lalabu ($65, originally $70) consists of an extra piece of stretchy fabric built into a t-shirt. That's it!
However, the genius clothing item isn't exactly the same as a typical baby carrier. The Lalabu website calls its "Soothe Shirt" an "all-in-one babywearing shirt that's both a nursing tank for mom and a cozy carrying pouch for baby," and states that it's intended for newborn babies weighing up to 15 pounds. In addition, the company recommends that parents always keep one hand on their baby during use, even though the kangaroo-like pouch does support much of the baby's weight.
So you can't exactly carry a toddler hands free, but hey, it's still a pretty damn clever idea.
