About

The extendher. The maternity and babywearing extender that gives you that added room for your coat or jacket before and after baby. Patent Pending

Welcome to the Extendher shop:
Two entrepreneurial women; a mom with 4 kids under 5, MARIA MESSIER and her Aunt, a fashion designer, JOANNE FRANK, came together to come up with a unique invention:
A Maternity / Babywearing Coat Extender.

It solves not only the problem of expanding your various coats for maternity, it also becomes a protective warm cover for a front babywearing carrier or wrap. It allows the expecting mom and the new mom to be warm without purchasing a maternity or babywearing coat.

The extendher comes in a warm winter, a warm and wicking moderate and soft shell versions for all kinds of climates. A unique clip on system with gel protective clips, enables you to expand your own coats. This gives it dual functionality, and easy to share with other family members while babywearing. This allows anyone who wants to take the baby for an outing to use their own coat or jacket. That means dads, grandparents and caregivers can use the extendher because it will clip on to any jacket or coat that has a zipper. The many clips are gel protecting suspender type clips that clip over the zipper teeth on your coat and safely clip on to the zipper tape. The storm flaps protect the clips and keep out drafts. There are top side and inside storm flaps that envelope the edges of your coat as well as a center one under the zipper for comfort and protection for the baby.

The warmest winter extendher has a 3 ply Nylon top layer lined with Polartec fleece which is warm and comforting next to baby's skin. Available in black. Our warm moderate extendher has the same 3 ply Nylon top layer lined with Polartec PowerDry. It has wicking properties to keep you warm and dry. Available in black outer shell and with a red lining. The Lightweight soft shell has a sunscreen 50 nylon top layer which blocks out the suns rays 98% and is lined with a micro poly fleece which has wicking properties to keep you and your baby protected without overheating. Available in Safari Tan and Glacier Grey.

The Easy Hood accessory is available in all linings and matching colors, for extra protection from sun, wind, rain and snow. Patent pending

Welcome to the extendher store! This is the ONLY coat extender for maternity and baby wearing that can be clipped on to any coat that has a zipper that is ready to wear and doesn't require applications or zipper extensions. Why waste money on a maternity coat or poncho to wear everyday and everywhere when you can continue wearing all the coats and jackets you already have in your closet! Purchasing a maternity coat doesn't give you that versatility of wearing the right coat for every occasion. Our extendher is a dual purpose product. It will fill in the gap from baby bump to baby wearing. It is easy to use, comfortable, wind proof, water resistant ( soft shell) waterproof (warmest winter and warm/wicking for moderate winters) and has a great fit at any stage of pregnancy! Baby wearing is more popular than ever. Having your baby in a front carrier under your coat keeps them warm and protected. It also enables you to go about your outings hands free! Simply clip it on to a coat or jacket and then zip or unzip to use. Extendhers come in Polartec fleece lined , Polartec PowerDry lined and Soft shell lightweight versions lined with microfleece. Matching Easy hoods are sold separately.
