A Birth Bag Essential
The ‘Golden Hour’ directly after birth is vital for parent-baby bonding. This is why all parents-to-be will benefit from packing a Joeyband™ in their hospital bag. Our premiere, patented, skin-to-skin product is used by the leading global hospitals in the NICU, Postpartum and Operating Room. It’s also trusted by families around the world for safe cuddles at home (multiple uses up to two years)
Easy to use
Designed for use immediately after birth and into the Fourth Trimester, the Joeyband™ can be used to facilitate skin-to-skin (ages 0-3 months) or to keep your baby ‘forward-facing’ on your lap (ages 4-12 months) while trying to eat or work at a table. It’s a great accessibility tool for parenting, and is the perfect product to ensure baby remains secure on your lap without needing to be held.
The Joeyband™ is a must-have part of any parent-to-be’s preparation stages. From delivery, it allows parents and caretakers to connect with baby through touch, building trust and creating a sense of safety and security. Skin-to-skin bonding stimulates your baby’s brain development and rewires your own brain to feel more at ease. It’s easy-to-use design makes it inclusive for people of all abilities.
Materials + Care
Joeyband™ is made in North America of Nylon Spandex, with an industrial strength velcro hook and loop closure. Imagine your favourite yoga pants, wrapping you and your baby in a soft, stretchy hug.
Joeyband™ can be hand washed or machine washed. Bind the hook and loop prior to washing so it doesn’t snag on your other clothes.
Wash on a gentle, cool setting, and either air dry flat, or tumble dry low – just like you would your favourite swimsuit or athletic wear.
Steam any wrinkles out, if you wish!

When one of our Co-Founders experienced her newborn baby falling off her chest while doing skin-to-skin, she knew she never wanted another family to experience the pain of an infant fall. Now used on over 100,000 newborns, our community is not only protecting babies, but improving their quality of life during the fourth trimester.
We are a close knit team who supports each other, and are passionate about sustainability, maternal rights, and creating a life filled with joy. We are deeply focused on building an equitable, authentic community for your fourth trimester and are honoured to be a part of your journey.
