This classic babywearing jacket from German brand Mamalila really is worth its weight in gold. It’s a real all-rounder: warm enough to wear in winter; breathable enough to wear in the spring; and waterproof and windproof enough to see you through those wet autumn months, too!

As with all of Mamalilas products, this babywearing jacket comes with every eco and ethical credential you could wish for. It’s feminine, lightly tailored cut makes it exceptionally flatting, whilst still being generously sized so you can carry big babies and toddler underneath it.

The clever, adjustable babywearing insert quickly attaches with waterproof zips to keep your baby snug and warm in their sling or carrier, whatever the weather. We love all the clever features of this babywearing jacket – from the anti-drip cuffs and drawstrings to the generous zip-up pockets.

    I’ve recently purchased this jacket to use with my ergobaby 360 baby carrier, as I was finding going out with a 3 year old and a baby in a pram to be anything from a little bit stressful to nigh on impossible. Being hands free means that i can keep my older son safe in holding his hand, without having to ‘pull over’ and brake a pram, which my baby daughter wasn’t enjoying anyway ,as she likes to be close to me and dislikes lying flat, due to minor reflux. The problem was that I needed something for daily use ie nursery runs as I don’t drive, but the weather is impossible to predict. I was using the newborn insert for my daughters comfort but as shes bigger than average and long in the back, her face was peeking over the wind protection built into the sling, causing skin chapping on her face. I also got caught in the rain a couple of times and had to hide under a tree. I wanted something that would cover her completely, without restricting her movements or mine.

    This coat was perfect, as it is warm but not sweltering, still cosy for her and protects from rain and wind. With the insert it looks neat and tidy , not at all baggy. The sizing is probably more on the generous side but not excessively so order pre pregnancy size as the panel is generous enough to cover any differences in the meantime. After the carrying phase is over ,the middle insert for the sling can be removed by unzipping both sides and the jacket is then transformed into a good quality soft shell, which should last, even with heavy use and minimal care. The middle panel can be switched to the back of the jacket should you choose to baby wear on your back as baby gets bigger and heavier. There is a lady modelling this jacket on you tube. The current design is identical to the one being modelled. I absolutely love it and think the design is very well thought out. Def worth the money paid if you often use a sling and like to be out and about.

    I was initially really hesitant about spending so much on a babywearing coat, but I can safely say I’m so glad I did. The coat is cleverly designed and practical for babywearing, but also looks really nice as a normal coat – I think I’ll definitely get my money’s worth! It’s lovely and snuggly without being too thick (might need an extra layer underneath on really cold days) and feels like it’s really good quality. I love it 🙂
