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 well 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.

Choosing your size:
This is a tailored jacket with a flattering, form-fitting cut. If you live somewhere very cold and want to be able to wear a thick jumper underneath the jacket; if you are 5’8″ tall or above; or if your chest measurements are notably larger than your waist/hip measurements; you may wish to size up.
Please see the measurements below and do get in touch if you’d like further help choosing the right size.
