Guaranteed to fit your belly and baby.
The Universal Jacket Extender is a softshell extender that expands the front of your own jacket during pregnancy. While baby-carrying with a soft-structured front-carrier, wrap or sling, the extender expands your jacket around you and your baby, for close comfort and warmth while outdoors.
The unique design slides over and secures onto most brands and sizes of zippers allowing you to switch between jackets with ease. For different-length jackets, simply reposition the extender for ideal coverage or fold the top down on shorter jackets. The Universal Adapter can also be used without the extender during early pregnancy and post-partum where just a few extra inches are needed.
Really simple to install and keeps my baby toasty now the evenings are getting colder.
I love the extender and keep telling people that it is one of the best investments I’ve made during my pregnancy! However, I wish that the instructions were more accessible. The instructions that came with the extender were not clear and I almost gave up installation in frustration. It was also annoying to have to search through the FAQ to find the video instructions. I think it would be super helpful to have the instructions in one and clearly marked on the website, and to clearly identify that link on the instructions that come with the extender. Once I found the instructions on the website installation was a breeze, but do really wish they were easier to find!
Thank you for this feedback :). We hear you. We've recently updated our How-To videos, made them more accessible with direct access on the product page under a How-to Tab and now easier to find in the FAQ.
This adapter is a nice option to have especially when you don't have a lot of closet space or want to buy yet another bulky item. I've gotten compliments that you can't even tell it isn't part of my original jacket event though it's a different color. Only downside is it takes a bit of time to switch it from jacket to jacket so I only end up wearing it with one jacket. So weigh your options f you have room in your closet and only want one jacket then I would just get a maternity jacket. If you want options and also don't have a ton of space then this is a great option. The zipper stoppers are a must and if you don't put them on with your jacket it will slide down. Customer service was extremely responsive and helpful to offer to send me more so I don't have this issue anymore.
I got this instead of buying a winter coat for pregnancy/baby wearing. I love that there’s 2 parts- I’m 6 months and just needed the couple extra inches but love knowing I can add the extra part when I am bigger/when I will be wearing baby. So easy and quick to attach to zippers and I love that I can still wear all my original coats with each season. Way cheaper than buying a new coat!
Great concept for making non-maternity coats work throughout your pregnancy and baby wearing days. Wish that the zippers on the extender itself worked better (they're tough to get connected) and that the instructions included in the packaging made any sense (they don't, but the video on the website is very clear). Glad I can now be warm in my third trimester!
