The Dadware Bondaroo

the dadware bondarooNick Baker seeks an investment for The Dadware Bondaroo, his “kangaroo care” shirt for dads, in Shark Tank  episode 1123. Baker got the initial inspiration for his product when his daughter, Eva, was born. His wife had a particularly painful labor and didn’t feel prepared to hold her newborn child right away. When babies are born, the doctor or nurse will usually place the baby on the mother’s chest. The skin to skin touch is reassuring to the newborn and it helps mother and child bond.

Since Dawn, Nick’s wife, didn’t want the first bonding experience to be negative (due to her pain), Nick took off his shirt and nuzzled his new born daughter on his chest. Once home, he continued the practice. When he got sick of taking his shirt off all the time, he cut strategic holes in old tee shirts for easy access. The tee shirts didn’t pass the “wife test,” so Baker designed a shirt with a flap and Velcro fastener and The Dadware Bondaroo was born.

Kangaroo shirts have been available for moms for a long time. They’re sometimes called nursing shirts. The concept for this kind of shirt for men is relatively new, but there are others out there. The Dadware Bondaroo is made in the USA (in Los Angeles) from French terry cloth. The Velcro fasteners are rounded so there are no sharp corners to poke baby. The Bondaroo lets dads look fashionable while still having quick access to that precious skin on skin bonding experience. You can find them on Amazon for $39.99. Baker sells online only now, but he’d like a Shark’s help with broader distribution.
