23 Nov 08 – Penang Adventist Hospital

It was great honour to be invited to promote and share information at the Penang Adventist Hospital last Sunday during their Kangaroo Club meeting.

Together with a Breastfeeding Support Group (which I am also attached to), managed to promote two of my passion: Breastfeeding and Babywearing 🙂

The Babywearing part of the gathering started with me introducing babywearing and the different options available…

And, gladly, there was an interest among the participants to pay attention and also walk up to seek more information after the session 😀

We were lucky to have Babywearers, a natural in the type of carrier they were demonstrating, show the participants the different options there is. Tze Shin, MBW team from Penang, was demo-ing the use of a Mei Tai with a Kozy Carrier. We managed to even get an Indonesian helper (sorry I keep forgetting her name) to show us how she usually ties the sarong.tze-shin-helperThen, we had Debz showing off her skills with a Ring Sling and me showing off the wrap (which scared people off, I think!). We did show the pouch, too (of course!) but we just didn’t get a picture on that 😦jess-debz

It was overall an eventful day for us from MBW as we managed to create awareness (Imagine… no one raised their hands when asked if they know what ‘Babywearing’ means… it started with quite a few blank and/or curious looks, really).

And, on our way back… guess what we saw!
