When there is no babysitter...just bring baby to Parliament!

That's what 39 year old Hanna Dahl, a member of the European Parliament (MEP), did this past Thursday, when she reported for duty in Strasbourg, France.
Danish born Dahl, grew up in parts of Asia and now lives in Denmark with her husband and two children.

Dahl denied bringing baby to work to make a statement, as just two weeks earlier she had criticized the European Parliament for now allowing its members to take maternity or paternity leave. If parents want the time off, they must step down from their position with the Parliament. Her actions made international headlines causing mixed reactions around the world. Some were amused, while some others were angered.

She indicated that her husband is who normally babysits, but he had to go to Denmark unexpectedly and that was the reason why 3 month old Gaia had to go to work with mommy.
Little Gaia, dressed in a cute pink top, appeared to be on her best behavior. And despite some circulating rumors on the news media, there were no reports of breasfeeding or diaper changing during the political session.

"Considering my husband has been with her so many times while she screamed, I decided to take her along this time," Dahl said. "In Denmark we have a very relaxed attitude towards breastfeeding in public, and the same ought to be the same here."

We really admire how progressive the Scandivians are when it comes to combining motherhood, family life, and work. Hanna says her intent was not to make a statement, but she certainly did! She is one gutsy Mom and we are proud of her!

The Belly Bandit Abdominal Compression Binder

Proudly Made in the USA

As Featured on The Ellen Degeneres & The Rachel Ray March 5, 2009
Click on the icons to see the show segments.
The Belly Bandit™ wrap is an abdominal compression binder designed to help you get your body back to its former fabulousness post childbirth.
Not only does the Belly Bandit™ help reduce uncomfortable uterine swelling, it aids in decreasing bloating caused by water retention, and gives additional support for Mommy’s weary legs & back. For you breastfeeding moms, there’s a bonus… the Belly Bandit™ will help you with your posture during feedings, and may help to reduce the all too common back & shoulder pain associated with breastfeeding.

Ultimately, the Belly Bandit™ wrap will aid in getting you back to your pre-pregnancy hotness faster than ever!

Stretch marks – urgh! Although everybody knows what can cause them ie: stomach growth and the stretching of skin, we really have never thought about the post period and what may be another factor. The excess skin that is pulled and stretched after birth may continue to cause unsightly markings by “hanging around”. Greater support of this loose skin may actually decrease tension which in turn may decrease stretch marks in the post period.

Who knew it could be so easy?
Smart women around the world that’s who! The binding of a woman’s abdomen post delivery has been used therapeutically for centuries all over the globe. Increased and constant pressure against the abdominal area has many benefits. It has been known to help flatten the belly and redefine the waistline while helping you keep your back straight, thus minimizing associated pain and fatigue.

This is simply a breathable and comfy exclusively tailored abdominal wrap to assist your body in regaining its former beauty and shape. The Belly Bandit™ provides strong support to help relieve discomfort and give you that extra boost of confidence you deserve after childbirth. Our smooth lightweight construction is designed to be worn comfortably under all of your clothes and our tagless design won’t irritate your skin.

The International Breastfeeding Symbol

Did you know that there is an international Breastfeeding symbol?

Have you ever seen this symbol in a public place?
We haven't! but would certainly like to see it proudly displayed everywhere we go.

In Miami, where Best Baby Organics is based, there are not many breastfeeding friendly places. If a mom needs to breastfeed, she has a few options: she can either go hide with her baby in a smelly bathroom, or try to find a quiet place to cover herself up and hope not to offend anyone. Breastfeeding in a Miami public place can be quite stressful for mom and baby. Where is the symbol we ask?

The symbol exists and it has already been spotted in many places around the world. It all started as a Mothering contest initiative to create public awareness and to encourage breastfeeding. The winning image was designed by Matt Daigle of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Matt has made this design available to everyone and it is copyright free. THANKS FOR YOUR CREATIVITY AND GENEROSITY MATT!!!

We love this symbol! and wish more shopping centers, restaurants, and other public places in Miami and around the country would create areas for mothers to breastfeed their babies or simply make their places more breastfeeding friendly, so that moms don't need to stress when feeding time comes around.

We heard from a Norwegian mom, that in Norway they even have "breastfeeding cafes" where moms can go and hangout with their other mom friends, while breastfeeding their babies. How cool is that? Now, why can't we have something like that in Miami?

Postpartum Belly Binding - The Belly Bandit Makes its Debut on the Rachel Ray Show

The Belly Bandit was featured on the Rachel Ray Show today!

The Show's "Human Lab" segment had three women testers, who tested three different products that combat belly fat. One of the testers was Yasmin and her belly problem was associated with Post Pregnancy belly bulging:

"Yasmin, 30, is a new mom who is concerned that her belly will never go back to its pre-baby state. She says that her stomach used to be firm, but after losing most of the 45 pounds she gained during her pregnancy, it remains loose and soft. "If I don't try something drastic," says Yasmin, "I think my stomach is here to stay." Yasmin tries the Belly Bandit, an abdominal compression binder designed to help new moms get back in shape by wrapping and compressing their stomachs."

Yasmin used the Bamboo Belly Bandit and tested its effectiveness for several weeks. She then appeared on the Show, and was happy to report back to the audience that after losing several inches, she even had to order a smaller size Belly Bandit to continue shrinking her stomach. She also said that the Belly Bandit was very comfortable and very easy to use.

We are thrilled for Yasmin and wish to congratulate her on her new baby and on shrinking back into shape so fast!

Thanks Belly Bandit!!
