Mother’s day is nearly here!
… so we thought we’d dig up some interesting mothering facts…
> There are about 2 billion mums in the world.
> On average, mums take 2 minutes 5 seconds to change a nappy, while dads take only 1 minute 36 seconds.
> Elephants give birth to the largest babies… after enduring 22 months of pregnancy, she gives birth to a 200-pound calf.
> The oldest mother in modern history to give birth was Rajo Devi Lohan from India. She was 70 years old!
> Modern mums in the UK have an average of 2 kids. In the 1950s, they had an average of 3.5 kids. In the 1700s, they had 7–10 kids.
> In Cuba, new mums get 6 months maternity leave with full salary. Nice!
We love your big heart!
A big thank you to everyone who helped us spread the word about the amazing work carried out by Baby Banks in the UK. Thanks to you, we donated over 100 new baby bottles to Stripy Stork Baby Bank in Surrey to help vulnerable families. Baby bottles are in demand as they can’t be second hand so we are thrilled that you helped us make a difference.
If you would like to donate to a Baby Bank, check out this list of items that are in super demand – Stripey Stork wish-list (February 2017).
#YouAndMe can help #parentsinneed
At yoomi, we know that becoming a new parent can be challenging and having a support network to help can make all the difference. Unfortunately, there are parents living in the UK that do not have a traditional support network and feel alone. At yoomi, we are launching #YouAndMe, a campaign created to raise awareness of Baby Banks around the UK and support #parentsinneed with donations of yoomi bottles.
We want to send a message to all parents that they are not alone. The #YouAndMe campaign is designed to celebrate the many combinations of #YouAndMe that exist in the Modern Family in the UK.
To get involved, all you need to do is pay tribute to the person that helped you through a parenting low, post a picture of this hero and tell us what makes them so great! At the end of your caption add:
This is my donation to the #yoomibabybank for #parentsinneed I now nominate (***3 parents of your choice***) to make their tribute. #YouAndMe
Every post will help generate a donation of a yoomi bottle for Baby Banks in the UK and everyone who posts will be entered into a competition to WIN a yoomi welcome home starter set. (RRP £65.00)
