Photo a Day Competition – WIN a manduca package courtesy of My Natural Baby Ltd

Manduca package 13

We are excited to once again be running the very popular babywearing pic a day event this year. From October 5 – 31 there will be a theme a day for your babywearing photos which you are invited to share on the New Zealand Babywearing Week Facebook page. Each image shared will count as an entry in the prize draw to win a manduca package which includes the following thanks to My Natural Baby:

  • 1 x ‘NewStyle’ black manduca
  • 1 x SilverLily organic cotton ZipIn (Limited edition)
  • 1 x SilverLily organic cotton fumbee shoulder strap protectors (Limited Edition)
  • 1 x manduca front pouch
  • Package value $338.85

The Manduca Baby and Kids Carrier has been designed in Germany by Wickelkinder GmbH.  Orthopaedically designed and packed with features, the Manduca baby carrier is one of the most versatile and comfortable soft-structured carriers on the market.

 Main features of the NewStyle Manduca baby carrier:

  • Can be used for newborns (from 3.5kg) and for children up to 20kg (about four years old).
  • Includes an integrated infant seat insert
  • Has an integrated back-extension for older babies and toddlers
  • Has integrated head and neck support
  • Is adjustable to fit most people
  • The outer material is 45% organic cotton and 55% hemp
  • The inner material is 100% organic cotton
  • Can be machine washed at up to 30C
  • Comes with instructions.

The ZipIn zips into the extendable panel of your manduca to give a fresh and fun look, while the organic cotton fumbees attach easily to the shoulder straps which babies, especially teething ones, love to chew on! The fumbees save your carrier straps from the drool and chewing and can easily be put through the wash, saving you from having to wash your whole manduca so often!

The manduca front pouch can be attached to the waist band of your carrier using the velcro strap, or use it with the included shoulder strap. It’s roomy enough to hold a nappy change, keys, phone, money/cards and even some snacks.

The image below lists the themes for each day of this year’s photo sharing event. Have fun! Looking forward to seeing your babywearing pix!

Guess & Win with Pikau the New Zealand Babywearing Week Kiwi – Winners Announced!

Hi everyone.  It’s Pikau writing to you on this lovely Spring evening.  Sorry it’s taken me a while to announce the winners in my competition but I’ve been so exhausted from my daytime jaunts during New Zealand Babywearing Week  attending some of the events happening around the place from October 6th – 14th. It’s taken me this long to feel recovered enough to get my typing toes into gear!

I had such a great time travelling during New Zealand & International Babywearing week, attending some wonderful events and meeting some great Kiwi parents and kids.  Here I am at the event which kicked off NZBW12 – the Kerikeri Babywearing Walk which concluded at the Food at Wharepuke Cafe.  This is me with the winners of the sponsored prizes!

In this pic I was checking out the famous Stone Store!

New Zealand Babywearing Week in Kerikeri

I also got to visit the Makana Chocolate Factory, see how some of their products are made and meet some of the staff too!!  And of course there was the sampling plate, hehe . . .

My next event was the Whangarei Babywearing Walk – boy was that thirsty work as it was soon after the Kerikeri Walk which was that morning and quite frankly my bed was really calling to me.  I maintained my professional demeanour however and enjoyed the event, helped out a bit by a lovely young lad called Ethan who installed me into his kids baby carrier – very comfy it was too.  Check out Stiched Purls if you’d like to get one for a small person you know.

Here I am with most of the group in Whangarei!

My next stop was the Babywearing North Shore workshop in Auckland which was a lot of fun. I met some more fabulous people, helped with the prize draws and got to have a ride in a stretchy wrap with a lovely pregnant lady.  I almost dozed off in there!

Next on the agenda was a trip further south so I jumped in the car and hit the road . . .

We arrived in Rotorua in time to join the lovely locals for a babywearing walk which ended at the Rotorua War Memorial Park by the lake for some demo’s and prizes.  It was fun hanging out there.

Here I am checking out the famous Rotorua Museum!

After Rotorua we drove across to Tauranga and joined the Tauranga Babywearers for their celebratory walk which ended at Grindz Cafe for demo’s and prizes.  Here I am with most of our group before we set off on the Tauranga walk:

It was such a busy week for me.  Being a nocturnal chap it was a challenge to stay awake during the day but it was so worth it, I had so much fun.  Thanks to everyone who sent in entries for the guess and win comp – guessing which events I would be attending during New Zealand Babywearing Week.

My prize for the winners is pictured below and includes a set of fumbee shoulder strap protectors (suitable for any baby carrier, stroller/pushchair or car seat straps) from My Natural Baby, a pair of Huggalugs leg and arm huggers from our friends at Huggalugs New Zealand and a copy of the latest The Natural Parent Magazine.  Big thanks to our prize sponsors!! Prize value is $60.00!  (Prize can only be shipped within New Zealand).

And the lucky winners with correct guesses are . . . . actually noone guessed four correct events!! Most entrants guessed two events correctly, and two guessed three correctly.  Sooooo the two people who guessed three events correctly will each win a prize pack!  Congratulations to Kerry Sequana and Tonya Bristow!!  I’ll organise for your prize packs to be sent to you this week!

Thanks again to everyone who joined in the New Zealand Babywearing Week 2012 celebrations – I look forward to seeing many of you again next year!
