Men can wear women's jackets

The best babywearing jackets for men

The baby is to be carried not a purely women's business. Carrying is a wonderful way of getting to know your own baby, especially for men. Some even refer to wearing it as "breastfeeding for men". A suitable babywearing jacket can also serve men well if they want to protect their offspring from wind and weather in winter or on cold days.

What is different about a babywearing jacket for men?

Basically, a babywearing jacket that is recommended for men must serve the same purpose as a babywearing jacket for women, i.e. it should

  • protect against moisture, wind and cold,
  • fit exactly and not narrow anywhere,
  • be fashionably appealing.

While the functions are not very different from those of a babywearing jacket for women, the cut and color choice of a babywearing jacket for men are different. As a rule, men are taller, wider and wear different cuts than women. When it comes to the choice of color and pattern, the taste of men is usually more neutral.

The babywearing jacket for men, for example, is not tailored and should be much less tight than for women.

Many men agree Carrying parka, i.e. a longer, often lined coat with a hood, better than a short winter jacket or you simply prefer to wear it. A carry parka also has the advantage that it also covers the entire child, including feet, when your baby has become a toddler. And at this age, men wear more often than their women because their muscles are better developed and they want to take some of the strain off their women.

Even with babywearing jackets for men, you should make sure that a carrying insert can also be attached to the back. Because older children are usually carried on the back. It is less difficult and you can see more than in front of your body. And it is precisely in this phase of life, as I said, that men often prefer to carry them on the go - after all, the toddlers then weigh a few pounds.

Most men prefer black, dark blue, beige, khaki or another neutral color. A man with a baby boy and baby jacket is already noticeable enough in everyday life.

Viva La Mama babywearing jacket for men: Explorer Plus

We have also chosen inconspicuous colors for our baby carrier: The man was able to test the Explorer Plus babywearing jacket from Viva La Mama in black and navy (dark blue).

The Explorer Plus can be carried on the back or on the front. The carrying insert can be adjusted to the required width at the top of the collar, which I find very important. The width of the baby hood can also be adjusted. In this way, the insert always fits the baby exactly and it does not pull in at the top.

The hood for dad can also be rolled up when you carry it on the back, as you can see in the next picture. I find carrying the back incomparably practical because you have the area in front of you free, for example for your big brother, and you can bend down from time to time.

For some reason, few men’s babywearing jackets offer the option of back carrying them as well. As if men couldn't use a little more arm room.

Our baby is now about 75 cm tall. With most carriers with a spread-squat position, it still fits easily under the jacket. With Baby Björn, however, which my husband prefers to use, in combination with his long upper body sometimes the baby feet are already sticking out from below.

Overall, however, the Viva La Mama babywearing jacket for men does what it promises. Because such a big baby in combination with such a big man and a Baby Björn carrier is more of an exception. For all other dad-baby combinations, I can recommend the Explorer Plus babywearing jacket without any restrictions. My husband too, by the way.

Men's babywearing jacket as a gift

Men are often far less enthusiastic about (online) shopping than women. A babywearing jacket for men may be a good gift idea if they cannot make up their minds to buy or make a decision.

When making your selection, it is best to consider what type of jacket he is currently wearing and get a carrier jacket in a similar style. Some men may be more enthusiastic about softshell outdoor jackets, while others feel more comfortable in a stylish coat.
