Our fearless Ugandan Project Leader Josephine has finally arrived in Beni, DRC after multiple days of travel! At the airport she was questioned as to why she would want to fly to Goma in Congo- it is rare place to travel due to safety concerns. She reported back her thoughts while traveling: "Imagine when you are the only one on a flight, traveling for and with a vision of bonding families and especially in a war torn area." She also says about the project launch: "Happy Baby is is just like my son or daughters and I would like Happy Baby to grow because I cannot attach a price to the impact to users, their babies and the next generation". STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES THIS WEEK! #happybaby #happybabyglobal ... See MoreSee Less

"WHY I WEAR MY BABY- A DAD'S PERSPECTIVE"
There are a myriad of benefits to babywearing for both parents and their babies, and parents can use all the benefits we can get! Here are a few, but by no means all, of the benefits babywearing provides over alternatives like strollers and car seats:
• It aids the baby in developing balance, motor skills and mobility in general. (1, 2, 3) • Babies who are worn are less likely to cry as much during the day and even at night! (4) • Parents and their babies have a stronger bond when worn or carried, and it will last all the way into adulthood. (5) • Carried babies are happier and healthier. (6) • Babies get a better view of the world around them when worn. Poor babies in strollers or car seats only know a world of knees and shins! • Babywearing parents also enjoy the freedom of both hands and to move around safely with baby happily close to you. Plus, my original reason for wanting to wear my baby, it really is great exercise!
The evidence based on studies of Attachment Parenting in infants shows a wide range of psychological and physical benefits to each of the 4 components of AP. For example, AP-raised infants have lower stress levels, cry less often, and feel more connected to other people as they get older, even showing higher levels of empathy. #happybaby #investinUGchildren #earlymomentsmatter
Forgive me for asking but... Do you REALLY have low milk supply? This is a very important place to start. Please bear with me. I don’t mean to doubt your situation and be annoying patronising...

"Kristen Hawkes, studying Hadza hunter-gatherers in Tanzania, thought the solution to the mother’s dilemma was the non-reproducing grandmother, who in the course of evolution had extended her lifespan long beyond her fertility so as, Hawkes hypothesized, to help her daughters rear their young. And Beatrice Whiting, one of the first cultural anthropologists to do systematic cross-cultural studies of childhood, believed it was the child nurse, usually an older sister but often a cousin or young aunt and sometimes even a brother, who helped bear the burdens of child care for mothers, making life, work, and further reproduction possible." "Research on Efe hunter-gatherers in the African rainforest found that infants are given extensive non-maternal care, even to the point of being breast-fed at times by women other than the mother; yet mothers clearly predominate, especially at the age when attachments are forming. The same is true of the Aka, hunter-gatherers of Cameroon; they have the most involved fathers of any culture, but mothers still predominate. Grandmothers also matter in all such foraging groups, but not, on average, nearly as much as mothers." "Among naturalists, the terms “cooperative breeding,” “alloparenting,” and “helpers at the nest” describe this kind of behavior, and the evolutionary success of some species depended on it, but it emerged only gradually as a possible explanation for the triumphs of our own" www.nybooks.com/articl…/…/12/08/it-does-take-village/ ...

It's normal to have difficulties. Breastfeeding has to be learned and many women encounter difficulties at the beginning. Many routine practices, such as separation of mother and baby, use of newborn nurseries, and supplementation with infant formula, actually make it harder for mothers and babies to breastfeed. It is also important to stay hydrated as not drinking enough water can certainly affect how much milk you are making. allafrica.com/stories/201508100918.html... See MoreSee Less
