Company Profile Request update info.
As a mother of 5, American Kathryn Wiley knows the profound effect a mother can have on her young. Armed with the knowledge that Haiti has the highest infant mortality rate in the Western Hemisphere, Kathryn started a movement. Inspired by the One for One giving of TOMS shoes, this mother also wanted to lead her children in understanding that a for profit business can give back to the world. So in 2011, Kathryn purchased Rockin’ Baby, and decided to evolve the company into a “Mother to Mother” business. Understanding the importance of the bond a mother can share with her infant, Kathryn decided that with every sling sold, Rockin’ Baby would donate one to a mother in need.
But the giving does not stop there! As there are so many cultures that tend to not hold their young, Rockin’ Baby will also educate those mothers on the impact a sling can have on their lives. In addition to making it easier to nurture and love, as well as bond and breastfeed, these slings will allow mothers to continue to gather food and water for their families. As the attachment of a mother and her infant could be a matter of survival, education and slings will impact this need dramatically.
By purchasing a Rockin’ Baby sling today, you are actually giving the gift of life to a mother and her child in Haiti (and eventually beyond). The impact is huge! Now mothers can learn that slings can be part of their daily lives, no matter how they struggle with their basic needs. In turn, these babies will be healthier, more attached to their mothers and begin a life more fulfilled and optimistic. From you, to them. Mother to Mother.
