What is babyWAWL? babyWAWL is a panel of fabric that zips directly into your coat or jacket. With your baby securely in your favorite front wrap or carrier, babyWAWL allows you to zip your coat around both you and your child, creating a warm space for the two of you. babyWAWL is made of gore-tex® and polartec® fleece.
What types of carriers or wraps does babyWAWL work with? babyWAWL works with all front wraps and carriers. It does not work with back carriers. We are working on a solution for this.
Why is babyWAWL the best solution? Unlike other carrier covers on the market, the babyWAWL lets you use your existing coat or jacket and keeps both you and your baby warm. This simple solution is easy to use, and folds up easily to fit in your diaper bag when not in use.
Does the babyWAWL come in different sizes? babyWAWL is one size fits most. It is made to fit infants from newborn up to about 30 pounds.
What about shipping? Shipping is free. Even better, we will soon be switching to fulfillment by Amazon. This will allow you to receive the items more quickly. Please be patient!
What kind of zipper is in the babyWAWL? babyWAWL comes standard with a YKK vislon size 5 zipper, with both a single and double pull. The pull tab should be in your right hand when you are wearing your jacket. Most jackets use this type of zipper. See here for more information on whether this zipper will work for you. If your coat doesn't match our zipper, there are options (see next question)!
Do you still do custom orders? We are no longer doing custom zipper orders. If your coat does not have the correct zipper type, we do have a solution! You can order a black deluxe with an extra zipper that you can sew directly into any coat or jacket. We have had several customers do this when we could not find a match for their coat, and they have all been very happy with the results. Around here it costs about $10 to have a tailor do this for you, but prices vary so we definitely recommend taking your coat to a local tailor to get an opinion before ordering.
How do I tell what zipper is in my jacket? The pull tab on your zipper should tell you. Click here for more detailed information.
How do you handle returns? You must first contact us for return authorization, then send the babyWAWL back to us. Once we receive the babyWAWL we will refund your purchase minus a $5 charge for shipping and handling.
Is babyWAWL safe to use? Yes! It's kind of like a blanket that zips in to your coat. Just be sure you follow the safety instructions with your carrier or wrap, don't leave the baby unattended, and never cover the baby's face and head.
Who are we? babyWAWL was started by 2 moms from Minnesota who wanted to wear their babies all winter long. Not satisfied with other options, they developed the babyWAWL for personal use. After realizing just how well the extender worked, babyWAWL the company was born to offer you the same product. We hope you enjoy this product and baby wearing as much as we have!
