Your baby’s safety is your responsibility. Always monitor your baby or child to ensure adequate ventilation and warmth. The Universal Jacket Extender is NOT a baby-carrier. Always follow the safety instructions of your baby-carrier.
I bought it for my 2 spring jackets and fits perfectly. The material is great and it protects well my baby. The service was also great when I needed help.
I got this at 7 months pregnant as my winter jacket could no longer close, I wish I had bought it sooner as I'd have been more comfortable. It's great that there is the small expander for the second trimester and then the full panel call be used in the third trimester and beyond. Looking forward to using it when the baby is in their sling/carrier too for next winter when we are out walking.
It isn't the cheapest expander by any stretch, however it's been through the machine already and come out perfectly. It's also very easy to fit without me needing to stretch my existing zip like some expanders required.
One star reduction as it is very expensive at over €100 delivered by comparison to €45+ for most other ones.
I have been using it to carry my baby and it has served the purpose. Baby fits in nicely and it keeps her warm. materials are good and it looks nice.
There are a few things that could be improved though:
zipper should be better and easier to zip - it is difficult to zip it while carrying a baby as you cannot see the zipper and it has to be aligned perfectly in order to zip up.
Slide stoppers that are meant to prevent universal extender from sliding down should be designed better as they cannot really hold well.
overall, I am happy with the product and would recommend it. I hope the comments would serve to make further improvements to the product.
Really handy being able to expand my existing coats and use across several different coats. Everything arrived very quickly and smoothly too. I have found it difficult to attach the zips to different coats, so not something you’d want to have to switch often. I think this is because of the different zip sizes on different coats so the attachments are much tighter and harder to slide on on some coats, but still definitely worth it in my opinion.
