As pregnancy progresses, so too does that sweet bump and the collection of clothes required to fit it. While the everyday maternity pieces are often a welcome addition, (shout out to elastic waist jeans!), some seasonal pieces can be hard to justify and even harder on the wallet. As winter approaches and you start to wonder how you will squeeze all that bump into last year’s winter coat, fear not, because Kokoala has created a genius solution! The zip-in Coat Extension allows you to continue using your pre-pregnancy coat by adding width for either a growing baby bump or for wearing baby in a carrier following birth.
A unisex insert, this piece can be worn by both mom and dad when baby carrying and comes equipped with an interchangeable zipper, allowing you to use it with different jackets. Given the ability to span pre and post pregnancy as well as both mom and dad’s wardrobe, the Kokoala Coat Extension is a win in our books. But don’t just take our word for it, we asked a new mom to try it out to let us know what she thought and this is what she had to say:
“I absolutely love this product for both pregnancy and now, with my little one. It has been so useful and practical for our needs as my growing belly expanded to be too big for my coat, and now, to keep my daughter warm as the cold weather approaches.
During pregnancy I started using the extension around 24 weeks. It was perfect from the point of needing just a little more room all the way until my belly was bursting. The adjustable string made it really easy to accommodate this growth. I love that I didn’t have to buy another winter coat and could continue using the one I already had.
The material is lightweight but sturdy and I feel great about the level of warmth it provided both my pregnant belly and daughter now. Im really happy with the black as it’s the most universal colour and looks the best with all of my jackets.
I would suggest this product to anyone who needs something to cover their belly or baby.”
