The 1st Annual Breastfeeding Run and Health Camp Uganda

Happy Baby Uganda was pleased to participate in the 1st Annual Breastfeeding Run and Health Camp on August 24, 2019. Our Project Leader Josephine Nalugo conducted community outreach at the event. One of our main focuses is the promotion of exclusive early breastfeeding.

The 1st Annual Breastfeeding Run was sponsored by the Ministry of Health Uganda, IBFAN Uganda, the World Health Organization and UNICEF

Happy Baby is committed to the promotion of exclusive early breastfeeding. It improves nutrition, prevents child mortality and decreases the risk of non-communicable diseases for children under 5 years of age. The Happy Baby Carrier is an ergonomic baby carrier. This allows the user to carry their baby in the front position. This helps the wearer breastfeed comfortably on the go. This helps the wearer to give their baby the best nutrition as well as protection from illnesses and diseases. 

The Happy Baby carrier was explicitly designed to allow breastfeeding while carrying, which is not possible with traditional back carrying methods. Its use allows for hands-free, safe babywearing. This enables the user to multitask efficiently, which in turn results in increased productive hours.

Using a soft carrier also facilitates a close interaction and helps newborns bond securely with their caregivers.
