GIVEAWAY: Make My Belly Fit


Some babies love to be held — all. the. time. While those baby snuggles are a delight, it can make it impossible to get anything done, or even get out of the house for a walk around the block!

So it was a relief to discover that baby S loves to be in the wrap (we are using a Solly Wrap – so cozy), and I carried her snug against me for our walks the first few weeks. Once the weather got a bit colder though, I wasn’t sure what to do – I tried wrapping big scarves around us without too much success. Then I saw a friend with the Make My Belly Fit panel zipped into her coat! The panel, which has a snap-in fleece layer, zips right into many coats, with lots of adapter options as well. The company generously sent me one to try, as well as another kit for a lucky reader!


Make My Belly Fit is based in Montreal, and as someone who lived there for 10 years, I know that Montrealers understand cold weather! When one of the founders was pregnant, she kept borrowing her husband’s puffy winter coat. He realized that a zip in panel would allow her to continue wearing her own coat, and get him back his too! After a lot of trial and error, they started producing the panels to share with other parents.

I’ve found the panel to be a nice thickness – definitely not too warm or bulky for more mild days, but with the fleece panel and a warm sleeper on the baby, we’ve been fine on the coldest days. The panel also has snaps that allow it to be cinched at the top for wearing while pregnant. It is such a genius way to allow you to wear all your coats you already own while pregnant or babywearing (dads too)!
