Nestledown FAQ 

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!

Will this panel hold baby?
Absolutely not.  The Nestledown baby-wearing panel is not a stand alone carrier. The coat 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 Forester to be a "back-wearing" garment?
There is no official hack for this, but it could be done. We have a blogpost detailing how to convert the Trailblazer Vest here to give you an idea of the concept:  How to convert the Nestledown for Back Wearing

Can I wear the coat "as a coat" if not carrying baby?
Yes, simply zip out the panel, and you have a cosy Forester Coat.
