The Weego PREEMIE Baby Carrier Plus Size
The first baby carrier for prematures
The standard Weego Baby Carriers fit up to a waist circumference of 45" (approximately US size 24). If you need a larger size or are in doubt, please order our Weego Plus Size with extra long waist belt and shoulder straps to accommodate any size.
The Weego Plus Size allows for more flexibility in sizes, and is ideal in cases where one baby-wearer may be on the larger side, and the other is not (or even petite). The only difference is that all adjustable straps will be able to extend further when needed.
The Weego PREEMIE is the first baby carrier specially designed for premature infants.
Numerous studies have revealed the value of physical contact, particularly for premature babies. All over the world, Preemies are now placed on their parents' chests ("kangarooing") as an alternative to incubators.
The Weego PREEMIE takes kangarooing to the next level. It is a hands free tool that enables parents and caregivers to provide the stimulation and touch that helps little ones thrive. It is so effective in comforting premature babies that many leading neonatal intensive care units use this carrier.
With its special construction, the Weego PREEMIE can — in consultation with your child's pediatrician or other health care provider — be used with babies as small as 4 lbs. (1.800g).
Like the Weego ORIGINAL, the Weego PREEMIE features our unique double pouch system which ensures the orthopedically correct posture of your baby. It is easily adjustable as your baby grows and offers the same carrying positions as the Weego ORIGINAL. It can be used until your baby weighs about 33 lbs. (15 kg).
"Based on my own experience, I recommend using the Weego soft baby carrier in NICU applications. It provides sensory stimulation for premature neonates (visual, auditory, olfactory, tactile and vibration) to support developmental gains and promote better, deeper sleep. It is a prctical tool that provides physical and psychosocial benefits to infants while easing the demands on professional staff and other caregivers."
Weego soft baby carriers are free from harmful and known allergenic substances. All fabrics are manufactured and approved in accordance with Oeko-Tex Standard 100, Class 1 for baby products. Zippers, buttons and snaps are in highest quality by YKK ® and certified by Oeko-Tex Standard 100, Class 1 for baby products.
The Weego PREEMIE is made of light blue and white striped Seersucker (65% Cotton, 35% Polyester) which makes it comfortable in heated Neonatal Intensive Care Units.
All Weego Baby carriers come with three snap-in bibs which protect the upper part of the baby carrier so that you will not have to wash it so often.
The Weego PREEMIE complies with the EN13209-2:2005 safety standard for baby carriers.
The Weego PREEMIE is easy to machine wash at low temperature. Wash separately with a mild, bleach-free detergent and low spin cycle after closing all Velcro and buckles. It can be tumble dried at low temperature.
