Nestledown FAQ + What's included

Will this panel hold baby?
Absolutely not.  The Nestledown baby-wearing panel is not a stand alone carrier. The vest must be worn combined with a front wearing carrier as it does NOT hold the baby on its own.  This panel is purely an extra layer of warmth.

Can I convert the Trailblazer to be a "back-wearing" garment?
Yes. We have a blogpost detailing how to do that here: How to convert the Nestldown for Back Wearing

Can I wear the vest "as a vest" if not carrying baby?
Yes, simply zip out the panel, and you have a cosy Trailblazer Vest.  

I don't want to sew a garment just for pregnancy - can I wear it afterwards?
Yes. Nestledown is designed to see you through pregnancy and baby-wearing. You simply zip the panels out when not required and you have a regular Trailblazer Vest.  Sew the Trailblazer Vest in your regular size, as the Nestledown panels create the extra width required for pregnancy/baby-wearing.  No wasted sewing!
