Thanks to the World Wide Web, The Leaky Boob’s community has Leakies all over the world. In the same way, TLB now includes a few sponsors beyond the North American continent. One such sponsor is KangarooCare, located in Estonia (that’s in Eastern Europe, in case you weren’t sure). The owner of KangarooCare is Varja, a mom of 2 kids, currently enjoying a family vacation with a fair amount of traveling. Varja and her mom make adorable hand-crocheted nursing and teething necklaces. These necklaces are what are featured in this giveaway. Read on to learn more about KangarooCare, some of Varja’s tips on traveling, and how you can enter to win a KangarooCare necklace!
TLB: Tell us a bit about your business, KangarooCare.
Varja: KangarooCare is a place where you can find breastfeeding and babywearing necklaces and toys for you and your baby. The KangarooCare necklaces are designed for mommies to wear while holding and/or breastfeeding their babies to prevent from pulling, pinching, and squeezing Mommy’s hair, clothes, or the other breast. All KangarooCare items are also safe for the baby to play with and chew on. The necklaces and teething toys are made using crochet-covered wooden beads, which help to massage Baby’s gums and absorb drool. Try it out! You will love KangarooCare – Breastfeeding & Babywearing Necklaces as much as your little one! : )
TLB: You have recently been traveling with your family; how do you keep your business going when you’re far away from it?
Varja: It is not so easy to have full control over the KangarooCare business while I am away from my studio, but I try to check my mail as often as possible, and reply to everyone in a timely way. I have my very own “work” time every day (which is about 2 hours), when my hubby is playing with children, so I can get things done. I also have my mom & best friend, who stayed in Estonia, to take care of KangarooCare. They crochet, put the necklaces together, and send the packages out. I totally trust them : )
TLB: When you’re traveling, what accessories can you not live without?
Varja: Earrings, bracelets and, of course, necklaces. Having an unlimited access to the KangarooCare studio, I’ve had a hard time choosing the right necklaces for our trip, but I finally did it. : ) My personal favorites are the solid-colored necklaces and the rainbows. I love simple outfits, so they’re the best choice for me.
TLB: KangarooCare is often coming out with new products; what do you have new for us this season?
Varja: I LOVE making something new! : ) I am constantly adding new color combinations & styles, so there can be a wide choice for everyone. Being a woman, I know how important it is to have an appropriate accessory for every outfit.
I am planning a lot of new KangarooCare stuff this season, but that’s a secret! : ) Stay tuned by liking KangarooCare – Breastfeeding&Babywearing necklaces on FaceBook!
