What is the Kimono Star?

The Kimono Star® is the only organic baby wear designed for skin-to-skin parent & baby bonding made in the UK. 

A mother lies with her baby on her chest, the baby is wearing a B for Bert organic cotton Kimono Star which is open for skin to skin bonding. A baby lies on its back wearing a B for Bert Kimono Star whilst her mother fastens the tie.


Crafted from GOTs certified organic cotton, the Kimono Star® is 'an easy on, easy off' baby suit designed to encourage the instinctive behaviours of a newborn baby & encourage the intimate skin-to-skin contact between a baby and parents. With its simple and unique oversized shape, there is plenty of space for umbilical cord clips and reusable nappies. 

Manufactured in Yorkshire in small batches, the Kimono Star is available in two sizes, newborn and 0-3 months. Made to be shared and passed down between families and friends; each Kimono Star Set comes in a matching bag with spaces to record each little wearer's name. 

Designed with happiness, warmth and a sense of inner peace in mind, the Kimono Star offers flexibility when it comes to dressing a baby. Whether they are wrapped up beautifully in the delicate pointelle fabric with a matching hat or gently unwrapped and placed against a family member’s chest; the B for Bert Kimono Star® makes family bonding simple. 

The B for Bert Kimono Star® is a great way to help celebrate baby showers, hospital homecomings and more, it’s an excellent addition to -

Your Hospital Bag - Though it’s not limited to just after birth, the Kimono Star® is designed to be used during the first few months or Fourth Trimester. It’s the ideal item to have in your hospital bag and wrap your baby in after birth.

To Establish Feeding - However you choose to feed your baby you will want to make it special, taking the time to really connect with skin-to-skin will create the perfect safe environment to begin your feeding journey.

Father & Sibling Bonding - whilst the bond between a mother and her new baby is undeniably important so too is that between the father & siblings. Making it easy for others to bond with a baby is very special and is a way that a family can really help out in the postpartum period.

Calming a fussy baby - The first few months of a babies life can be a confusing and sometimes stressful time, skin to skin bonding is an excellent way to calm babies and parents.

A Quick Change - If you need to leave the house or travel whilst your baby is small the Kimono Star® can be the perfect spare outfit for a quick change or as an extra layer.
