Baby K’tan Teams up with Operation Shower & Don’t Miss Their Valentine’s Day #Giveaway!

As a military mom, the news of this partnership really hit home for me and I wanted to share it with you. Check out the press release below for the full scoop, but don’t worry these military moms aren’t the only ones feeling the love this month. Baby K’tan will be giving out ten Baby K’tan Carriers through their Facebook page this month (enter through February 7, 2012) if you share why you love babywearing!

Baby K’tan carriers are nice compromise between a wrap and a structured carrier, where you avoid the hassle of yards of fabric to cross and tie, but still have the comfort of the soft cotton jersey fabric against your baby. The unique double loop design can be configured for many different carrying styles and I love the soft cotton knit fabrics when my little ones are newborns, but the pocket sling configuration gives me more support than others I own, because the K’tan uses both loops (layers) of fabric for this carry.

Go ahead and share your babywearing love on the Baby K’tan Facebook page for a chance to win!

DAVIE, FL (January 10, 2012) – Expectant military moms will receive the baby shower they deserve, along with the unique Baby K’tan Baby Carrier, at the first three upcoming 2012 events hosted by Operation Shower.

Through Operation Shower and generous donors such as Baby K’tan, LLC, military moms-to-be are recognized and honored for their sacrifices. These companies partner to organize baby showers for expecting families in the armed services.

“Baby K’tan feels privileged to be able to support Operation Shower in this important endeavor to celebrate our military moms,” says Michal Chesal, President of Baby K’tan, LLC. “In addition to our donation, we want to thank all of the new military moms for the sacrifices and contributions they, along with their families, make to better our country every day.”

Each mom-to-be will receive a stylish and unique award winning Baby K’tan Baby Carrier as well as gift boxes filled with baby supplies, clothing, toys, books, and more courtesy of Baby K’tan, LLC and other donors.

“Operation Shower celebrates and honors military families,” says LeAnn Morrissey, Chief Shower Officer. “Thanks to our generous partners, we don’t just throw a party; we provide each family with all the essentials needed for a great beginning with their baby.”

Last April, First Lady Michelle Obama, Dr. Jill Biden and Martha Stewart visited the Red White & Coo shower at Camp LeJeune, NC hosted by Operation Shower to provide support and encouragement for the moms as they highlighted their initiative to challenge Americans to support and honor America’s service members and their families.

“We know that being a new mom has its own challenges, but these moms make even more sacrifices to protect our families, as well as their own, and we are honored to be part of such a worthy cause” says Chesal. “We want to lessen their burden however we can.”

Both Operation Shower and Baby K’tan, LLC were founded in 2007, and have shown a devotion to giving back to the parenting community. Operation Shower has honored more than 400 families and hosted 12 unit-wide showers for the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and National Guard. Baby K’tan LLC, founded by two families raising children with special needs, devotes a percentage of its proceeds to the American Heart Association, the National Down Syndrome Society and a number of local charities in addition to their new partnership with Operation Shower.

    Wow that is really neat! I had no idea about it! We are actually stationed at Camp Lejeune currently. My husband deployed last feb right after I found out I was pregnant. Luckily he was able to come home a month before our daughter was born!

    • Hooray! I think the hardest time to be apart is not the pregnancy or the infant months (although that stinks as well), but the births, so I am so happy your husband was able to be home for that. If I ever find myself complaining about him being gone when my daughter was an infant I have to remind myself that I am thankful he was able to be at the births of both of our children.

      • Ashley Elwell says:

        With my first daughter he was there for all of the pregnancy but had to go active a few days before her birth. I was unable to move with him due to being so far along, so he actually missed the birth by 3 hours. With our second he missed all of the pregnancy but was able to be there for the birth (and actually deliver her) so we figure, combined, he has a complete pregnancy/birth experience!
        It seems with kids they will always miss something, he missed our oldest learning how to talk, so we are hoping he will get to experience that with our second. Maybe the key is to keep having more kids so they can get a chance to experience everything! jk :)
        Thank you for your sacrifice as a military mom! It is tough but you are appreciated! I look forward to following your blog!
