SOOTHING YOUR BABY HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER
Wear your Soothe Shirt™ all day and you can calm your baby whenever you need to. Say goodbye to complicated wraps, snaps, and buckles. Your infant is held securely in the expandable pouch, with a support panel that flips up when needed to hold your baby's head against you.
FINALLY A MODEST NURSING TANK
Unlike most nursing tanks, the Soothe Shirt™ is modestly cut so it can be worn on its own. When you aren't breastfeeding, the pouch is designed to be pulled up over the breasts creating an elegant curve and an extra layer of coverage. The Soothe Shirt™ also features a comfortable, easy to use nursing bra. There are no clasps or hooks - just pull it aside for easy access.
DRESS IT UP OR DRESS IT DOWN
The Lalabu Soothe Shirt™ is versatile. Wear it under an open blouse, with a cardigan, or by itself. Launch colors to choose from include: Pure Black, Natural Brown, and Rich Purple. It's sized like a standard tank top, ranging from extra small to extra large (XS-XL).
Lalabu is named to honor the woman who taught us how to wrap babies during a trip to Burkina Faso, Africa. Our "One Day One Dollar" model strives to support women in Africa and Atlanta. One day a week we give our time to work with exploited women in Atlanta. One dollar from every sale is given to a microfinance organization to help women in Africa. For this campaign we're giving one dollar for every Soothe Shirt™ to Lalabu herself.
WHY WE NEED FUNDING
Our minimum order is going to cost $15k. This includes materials and production. We've self-funded $25k to develop the product and we need this campaign to place our first order. Your support will help us finish a 3 year journey to launch Lalabu.
LEVI AND THE LALABU™ DRUM
Wondering what Levi is doing with the African drum? Great question! We got the drum on our trip to Burkina Faso in 2009. Levi and the Lalabu team play it each time we raise another $1,000 of support on Indiegogo!

How long can I use my Lalabu Soothe Shirt™?
The pouch can be used to soothe babies up to 15 lbs.* For most infants, that’s somewhere around four months old, but it can range anywhere from two to six months. Continue wearing your Soothe Shirt™ the entire time you breastfeed. The pouch subtly covers the built-in nursing bra, making it the perfect top to pair with your favorite outfits.
Can it hold an infant hands free?
While the shirt holds your child's weight, supports their body, and soothes them, we recommend that you keep one hand on your child at all times.
Is it one size fits all?
No. We'll provide a sizing chart to help you select your appropriate size once the campaign ends.
What are the washing instructions?
Machine wash cold, hang dry.
When will they be available?
Supporters of our Indiegogo campaign will be the first to get Soothe Shirts™. Our current target shipment is by the beginning of September.
Are you shipping internationally?
For the Indiegogo campaign, yes. After Indiegogo we plan to sell direct from Lalabu.com to the United States and seek partners who want to sell and distribute Lalabu in other countries.
