Rockin' Baby's Mother to Mother Mission
For every sling sold, Rockin' Baby donates a new sling to a mother in need, and educates her on the importance and benefits of baby wearing.
About Rockin' Baby
American and mother of 5 Kathryn Wiley knows the profound effect a mother has on her children. Considering the fact that Haiti has the highest infant mortality rate in the Western Hemisphere, Wiley started a movement. Inspired by the One for One giving of TOMS shoes, Wiley wanted show her children how a for profit business can give back to the world. Wiley purchased Rockin' Baby in 2011, and evolved the company into a "Mother to Mother" business. Understanding the importance of the bond between mother and infant, Wiley decided that for every sling sold, Rockin' Baby would donate one to a mother in need.
And the people at Rockin' Baby took it one step further. In cultures where baby wearing is not common practice, Rockin' Baby educates mothers on the positive impact a sling can have on their lives and the lives of their children. Baby slings not only make it easier to nurture and love, bond and breastfeed, but they also allow mothers a hands-free way to continue doing the day-to-day things they need to do for their families.
When you purchase a Rockin' Baby sling you're actually giving the gift of a better life to a mother and her child in Haiti (and eventually beyond). The impact is huge! Mothers will discover how slings make a positive impact on their daily lives, no matter how they struggle with their basic needs. The result is healthier babies who are lovingly bonded with their mothers, and who possess a sense of well-being and contentment. From you to them. Mother to Mother.
