Today I’m going to go into something that I think is super important and definitely not talked about enough- body image. I know we think about our own body image all the time but that’s not really what I’m talking about- I’m talking about our kids seeing us. How do we make our kids feel more confident in their bodies when we aren’t comfortable in our own?
As a part of our Rainbow Baby project, we are sharing the beautiful and heartbreaking stories of Lil Helper mamas who have experienced loss in different forms. There’s so much taboo surrounding this subject, and many parents are left feeling alone while walking down this impossible path… But the truth is, you’re never alone, and we hope these stories give you a glimmer of hope in the darkest of nights.
In celebration of International Women’s Day, we have a very special announcement that is near and dear to our hearts here at Lil Helper.
A while back, one of our Ambassadors posted an image of her little one in a purple diaper and remarked that her mom, who passed very suddenly a couple months back, loved purple and would have been thrilled to see her little grandchild rocking it.
That post set into motion a mission – we had to honor the memory of her mom in a very special way. We reached out to her, got her permission and made a plan to rename our newest purple. From now on, it will be known as Pat’s Purple. 💜
