International Babywearing Week 2017 Malta

Close to a mother’s heartbeat – as seen on The Times of Malta 


A trip down memory lane

Back in the end of summer 2015, Malta celebrated the International Babywearing Week for the 1st time ever. Maltamum and Babywearing Malta begun their efforts to raise awareness on the many benefits of babywearing; including the major differences in between ergonomic babywearing vs non ergonomic. Nowadays, I am proud to say, many midwives and professionals all across Malta are encouraging ergonomic baby wearing.

Maltamum made accessible to Malta, and at affordable prices, the top international brand Ergobaby through, whereas Becky launched the Facebook group Babywearing Malta and started offering her services as the very first professional Babywearing Educator locally, giving premium advice and hands-on assistance on how to wear our babies properly and safely.

Autumn 2017 

This time around, Maltamum brings Tula to Malta, the baby carrier brand that has garnered a passionate cult following all around the world! Did you know for instance that Tula’s limited edition versions sell out seconds after they are available on the site, and can go for up to ten times the original price in the second hand market? Baby TULA used carriers can be traded, and sold for between $200–1200 above retail price. Tulas are that popular! 

Becky on the other hand is launching her Joimove, fun Babywearing Dance classes, and her babywearing workshops are from now on hosted at a new location, YUE in Naxxar.

Pauline Lephew, who started working with Maltamum earlier this year as a freelance Sales Assistant, just recently got her certificate as a Babywearing Educator as well.

Many reasons to celebrate this year as well <3
