MummyHugs Celebrates World Breastfeeding Day 2008

The Annual World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) 2008 is here!
August 1st-7th 2008.
Theme for this year: Mother Support - Going for the Gold

In conjunction with the Olympics in August, WBW 2008 calls for greater support for mothers in achieving the gold standard of infant feeding: breastfeeding exclusively for six months, and providing appropriate complementary foods with continued breastfeeding for up to two years or beyond.
The reason that inspired MummyHugs' existence is because of the love for my son. I quit my job so that I can nurse my baby and spend more time with him and hence I created MummyHugs. MummyHugs has enable me to work from home, continue to nurse my son till 2 years 2 months and provide support to other mothers to breastfeed.

Beside all the great nutrition and antibodies that breast milk contains, breastfeeding is more than just providing physical food for a baby. To me, it creates a strong bond between a mother and child and this relationship continue to flourish even when the child weans. For me, it 'forces' me to slow down in life and just spend quiet moments feeding my son. When I was working full time, I express my milk at work to continue to keep giving my son the best. It reminded me that I am a mother and it helps me to reconnect with my son when I return from work.

In celebration of World Breastfeeding Week, and showing our gratitude to God and mother nature for this gift of 'liquid gold', MummyHugs will be holding a sale of 25% for all slings in the month of August 2008.

Safety and Care

Safety and Care

How safe are our baby slings and our rings?

I would like to begin by saying that there's no official safety standards for baby slings. At MummyHugs we want to make sure that our baby slings are safe to carry your precious one. First we tested our slings ourselves by hanging a 50KG weight to one ring over 48 hours and there were no changes to the ring.

Results were encouraging but we were not 100% satisfied with our own test, and so we sent our rings and slings for a more professional testing at Sirim Berhad.

At Sirim Berhad 2 tests were conducted:
1st - how heavy can the ring carry before it gives way:
Result was 230kg.

2nd - if the ring sling can carry the weight of 50kg over a period of 48 hours.
Results was yes, there was no change to the slings and rings.

Conclusion: You can rest assure on the quality of the rings and our slings!

As for Pouch Sling, we have not sent if for professional testing but I personally have carried my 2 year old son who weighs 11kg in it and no problems! The stiches used when sewing are very strong and reliable.

However other safety measures must be taken when carrying your baby in our slings.

- Initially, help to support your baby in your sling with your hands. When you get used to the extra weight and learn to balance properly, you will feel confident enough to go "hands free."

- Do not wear your baby in a sling in potentially unsafe situations, like by a cooking stove, when drinking (or carrying) hot beverages, or when using sharp knives.

- Bend at the knees if you have to pick up an object, keeping one hand on the baby.

- Remember that toddlers have long reaches, so keep well away from dangerous objects when carrying them in slings.

- Walk carefully around corners and through doors.

- When traveling, babies should only ride in approved infant seats made for cars or bicycles, never in slings.
