Buy local! We hear it all the time. For mothers and their new babies, finding healthy food, clothing, or body care products in their community is fundamental to giving baby her best start. And knowing who to trust for authentic and evidence-based information is the fruits-and-veggies of mom’s daily information diet. Hospital clinicians are often a mom’s best resource.
Nurses provide care and compassion to give new moms a strong foundation and healthy community.
For many women, confusion overwhelms them at a time when they’re flooded with hormones and healing from birth. During their hospital stay, women rely heavily on their hospital clinicians for accurate, healthy referrals.
Especially in those first six weeks at home, moms can be exhausted. In the US, 90% of mothers stop breastfeeding within this vulnerable period. Many have little time or energy to seek out local advocacy groups, experts or products that support their breastfeeding and chemical-free intentions.
Nurses in Baby Friendly hospitals are the vanguards of support, education, and connection.
These clinicians, often members of the local community, know who’s doing what where. They can connect moms to the necessary support to help them persist in breastfeeding for those first crucial six months of baby’s life. They show mothers what truly natural products are available so toxic chemicals don’t creep into baby’s diet or infiltrate through her thin skin.
Today, major organizations like WHO and UNICEF have inspired collaboration among aligned consumer brands and Advocacy NGOs like Best Ever Baby. The collaboration between purely natural brands and NGOs is becoming a dominant voice in the consumer market, giving mothers and clinicians better, broader choices.
Best Ever Baby Care Kits are free and packed with a combination of evidence-based educational information and local organic products. From nipple cream to baby wash to lotions, these products have been third-party vetted by a panel of respected doctors, nurses, and lactation consultants.
