Important recall

Important recall

Important Recall Information: In coordination with the CPSC, 4moms today issued a voluntary recall of its MamaRoo and RockaRoo infant swings and rockers. This recall applies to MamaRoo Baby Swings (models 4M-005, 1026 and 1037) and all RockaRoo rockers (model 4M-012). This does NOT include the new version of the MamaRoo (model 1046), which launched this summer and has a 5-point harness.

When the recalled swing or rocker is not in use, the restraint straps can dangle below the seat and crawling infants can become entangled in the straps. If you currently own one of these swings, we urge you to contact us immediately to receive a free strap fastener that will prevent the straps from extending under the seat when the swing or rocker is not in use.

Please visit http://www.4momsrecall.expertinquiry.com for more information and to request a free strap fastener.

Rest assured, safety is our highest priority at 4moms. That is why we have designed this solution to further help ensure the safety of our customers and their families. Thank you in advance for your participation.

What has been the hardest part of your postpartum or parenting journey?

For me it was being able to find myself. I still continue to learn who I am and embrace the changes from the girl I once was.

It’s so easy to lose yourself in parenting and the family dynamic. You become wife, mom, chef, cleaner etc etc etc and you lose YOU! This pic of me was from 2009; young and somewhat care free.

So what has been the hardest part of your journey? Was is breastfeeding, the sleepless nights, sibling rivalry? What was it that you struggled with and how would you approach it differently now?

One part of my job is to help parents talk about their birthing experience; helping them through any trauma and guide them towards acceptance. This essential task can really affect the emotions and bonding process in the postpartum period. And we’re not just talking about the birthing parent, we’re talking about the birthing partner and other family members too.

For more great information and stats about the work of a postpartum doula, join me for a virtual event February 1st. I’ll post the event page in the comments.

The Boppy Company Recalls Over 3 Million Original Newborn Loungers, Boppy Preferred Newborn Loungers and Pottery Barn Kids Boppy Newborn Loungers After 8 Infant Deaths; Suffocation Risk

As a boppy lover and as my go to baby shower gift, this makes me sad.

Just as a reminder though, no baby should be left unattended on a boppy, nor should they be used as a sleeping device. Believe me, as a mother who had a reflux baby, I know this is hard.

Please be sure to check your boppy’s to see if it has been recalled.

5 Co-sleeping Myths Busted! - Pinky McKay Official Website

Considering co-sleeping with your baby? There's a lot of information out there, but lets go ahead and bust some of the myths. https://www.pinkymckay.com/5-co-sleeping-myths-busted/#:~:text=5%20Co-sleeping%20Myths%20Busted%21%201%20Myth%201%3A%20Co-sleeping,sleeping%20with%20%28and%20what%20...%20More%20items...%20

We all want a good night’s sleep but when it comes to where your baby sleeps you are certain to get bombarded with advice. If you dare admit to co-sleeping you will be an especially vulnerable target. Of course, wherever your baby sleeps is your choice and as long as you provide a safe sleeping [....

06/17/2021

No parent should do the postpartum period alone. In today’s busy age, US maternity and paternity leave is short, family often live far away, and our pride can often get in the way of us seeking help. The saying “It takes a village to raise a baby” somehow got lost over the years.

These few reasons alone are why I am so passionate about what I do. I help parents recover and adjust to a new baby, and I do it in a way that families feel encouraged, supported, and feel enjoyment in the settling process; treasuring those early moments. Is it easy? Heck no! But we get there.

I help families find Harmony in the forth trimester and like I say, I love what I do. Who wouldn’t? I get to work with amazing families from all walks of life and get to snuggle with babies every day. Best job ever 😍

If someone you know is having a baby soon, reach out, share this post, have them call me to talk, or email me. [email protected]

The postpartum period doesn’t have to be a chore or an unpleasant time. New Parent Harmony is here to help 😁
