Why The Bondaroo

To Us...Its Personal

We invented the Bondaroo as a comfortable way for new Dads to be encouraged to experience skin to skin bonding. My personal experience with kangaroo care and my daughter is WHY I invented this shirt. So many Dads miss out on this magical experience. I hope the DadWare Bondaroo helps more Dads become the best parents they can be!

Where Can You Use the Bondaroo?

In the hospital, for the golden hour, in the NICU, and around the house the DadWare Bondaroo gives dad a comfortable way to become an engaged and loving father from the start! So much research shows how important it is for Dads to bond.

As a quick note, this shirt does not support the weight of the child which results in a process we call "active bonding.” It is more effective to be focused on the baby when bonding, not “doing the dishes.”

Ideally one is holding/interacting/letting the baby sleep while bonding. By not supporting the weight of the child, the wearer is encouraged to interact with the infant. By not being a sling, The Bondaroo becomes a different product that accomplishes bonding in a better way: a comfortable shirt to wear around the house with a specific utility.

Built for Dad & Baby's Comfort

DadWare's current fabric is a 83/15/2 Poly/Rayon/Spandex blend that is incredibly soft while stretchy enough to maintain its shape after repeated use with your beautiful new infant!
