New TLB sponsor Kangaroo Care is offering a lovely giveaway of a teething ring and necklace for mom. Beautiful and original pieces for mom and baby, Kangaroo Care has something for everyone. Varja, the mom behind Kangaroo Care, took the time to answer some questions about her company and share her favorite breastfeeding tip. This experienced breastfeeding mom of 2 opens up about her inspiration and breastfeeding experience, supporting Leakies, and giving one lucky reader two of her lovely handmade items.
TLB: How did Kangaroo Care come to be, what was your inspiration?
Varja: I started making breastfeeding & babywearing necklaces when my daughter was born in August 2008, but the idea to create KangarooCare brand and shop came only 2 years later, when I was pregnant with my son. My kids are my endless inspiration!
TLB: Where are you located?
Varja: I am located in a very “exotic” and very tiny country called Estonia, which is not Russia! It’s an independent country and a part of the European Union.
TLB: How are your products made and from what materials?
Varja: I am using ONLY natural materials for making everything you see in my shop – apple and juniper wood beads, cotton yarn, 100% silk for the cords, etc. The beads that I use were made here in Estonia specially for KangarooCare and you won’t find products made out of these beads anywhere else!
TLB: Does your family help with your company at all?
Varja: Our family always tries to help everyone who needs help.
TLB: Did you breastfeed your children and if so, for how long?
Varja: Simona will soon be 4 years old and Jakob is 1 year and 8 months old, and I still breastfeed them both.
TLB: What’s your favorite breastfeeding tip?
Varja: Hot tea, sweet cake or a bar of chocolate, a comfortable chair and a bunch of pillows always help to normalize breastfeeding at the beginning!
Varja is giving away a Kangaroo Care wood and crochet bead rainbow teething ring and winner’s choice of any 1 necklace.
