The Kangaroo Top with Halter Strap is made from a soft, lightweight, and stretchy cotton / spandex jersey. It is cozy for mom and baby, snug, but flexible enough for baby to seek the breast. Side seams with elastic shirring and a double band at the bottom keep baby comfortably in place without unnecessary pressure.
The halter strap is easily stretched over mom’s head to breastfeed and gives extra support while sitting up, but this is NOT a hands free baby carrier. It is best worn when you lie in a reclined position or sit. If you do get up while using the top, use at least one hand to support baby.
