I purchased this product and have now used it in my regular winter jacket and my long northface style jacket. It is incredibly easy and fast to transition from one to another. I love it! I live in Wisconsin so the weather here is cold. I would say that the insert is not the most weather friendly in this climate as there tends to be a small draft but it is bearable. I am 7.5 months pregnant with baby #2 and I am 5'2, usually petite. This baby sits way out front and low so this jacket extender has been a lifesaver.
I did wash it while it was zipped onto one of my jacket as my 2.5 year old threw up all over the front of me one day and I didn't want to unzip the mess and get anything stuck where it would stink (sorry TMI). It went through the wash zipped right on my coat with no issues and came out perfectly intact, no issues. I do have problems with the zippers coming up a little bit at the bottom of the coat but I have not tried placing the clips they sent with the extender on the bottom to stop this from happening so, my own fault. Overall, I am SUPER happy with the purchase. I will be able to test the ability to baby wear with it in about 2 months so I can let you know then how easy it is to do. Right now I would recommend the extender to any momma.
Just received my new make my belly fit extension (with universal zipper). I am amazed on how simple it is to adjust, put on different coats and adapt to their sizes. Fit is great, i had no issues to put it on and it stays in put.
Quality is great and I can't wait to wrap baby in my coat for long walks in a few weeks. Thanks for this great innovation.
I am pregnant and my due date is in December. And because of that my normal jackets are not fitting anymore. This extension showed to be very useful and adaptable to various coats that I have. It is indeed a great accessorie for any pregnant woman during the winter. I totally recommend it to every pregnant woman.
The clips that attach the extender to the coat (including the small plastic clips that attach at the top, bottom or side of the coat/extender) do not fully hold the extender in place, particularly when moving a lot like getting in and out of a car or bending and carrying things. This means the extender slips down or bunches in places, which is not an ideal fit.
The adapter fit over my coat's massive zipper and the extender has been great! It's waterproof and keeps my baby warm.
