I desperately wanted to have clothing that caused less trauma around the face of a cleft babe like an over the head one can.
By the time Will was a week old he had a strap across his top lip, dental floss Sellotaped to his face (a safety precaution for his plate) and he also had an nasogastric feeding tube. Pulling vests over his head and his face wasn't a pleasant experience for either of us but these vests were ideal! For both of Will's surgeries for his lip and palate, I have also used these as they make it super easy for access of cannulas and monitors!
Our kimono bodysuit essentially wrap your babe up like a burrito! Pop them in the middle of the vest, pull one side of the vest over and fasten, same with the other side and then underneath and voila! Burrito baby is ready!
Each vest is made from 100% organic cotton which is perfect for your new baby's delicate skin. The sleeves finish around mid upper arm. There will be a small Don't Get Lippy logo (without text) on the inside of the bodysuit.
Sizes available (I would say this was generous sizing): 0-3m (53/60cm) 3-6m (60/66cm) 6-12m (66/76cm)
If you are looking to purchase a vest for a family member or friend, we would be more than happy to gift wrap and send it for you, along with a note dictated by you.
