KoalaKin, with its one-of-a-kind hands-free nursing pouch, loves to support new moms in their journey. Vivian, founder and creator of KoalaKin, wants to show her support by offering a KoalaKin nursing pouch in a free giveaway. I’ve asked her to tell us a little about the other ways that she likes to support new moms:
TLB: For every product created, there is a story behind it, a motivating drive that moved a person to invest their energy, creativity, time, and resources to make that product. What drove you to create the KoalaKin?
Vivian: I’m all about making life easier for moms, especially in those first few months with their new baby. That is the most critical time for their breastfeeding relationship and I’ve seen SO many moms give up breastfeeding because it was too hard / complicated / time consuming / painful, etc…
It seems to me that many moms are willing to give BF a try, but if the level of “investment” or sacrifice is too high for them (always such a personal thing), they will give it up.
TLB: How can the KoalaKin help with this?
Vivian: I created the KoalaKin to “decrease” that level of investment and sacrifice, in the hopes that this will help moms stick with it longer – until it gets easier and more manageable.
In other words, the KoalaKin is there to help get moms through the difficult times by perfectly positioning the baby at the breast, freeing up mom’s hands, promoting a healthy, ergonomic posture, and allowing moms to be more mobile. All in the hopes they’ll stick w breastfeeding for as long as they can / want. Because the longer they do it, the better off babies will be.
That’s what the KoalaKin is all about.
TLB: Are there other ways that you and KoalaKin are there to support moms?
Vivian: Yes! One thing I created for new moms is a guide on what to expect when breastfeeding their newborn (in the first 3 months). And then there’s social media. My desire is to create a non-judgmental space where moms can gather and share information that will help them in their breastfeeding efforts / journey.
