The length of time you should breastfeed your baby remains a hot and controversial topic. Everyone has a different opinion to voice and no matter what choices mums make, there are always plenty of comments and advice to listen to.
It all started with a present given to our daughter - a sleeping bag with a polyester filling! 2011 (2012) Damp, sticky, stuffy, sometimes too hot and then too cold. This is what our first child, Carmen, must have experienced as she spent 5 years ago days and nights after she was born in a sleeping bag with polyester filling. It was a gift from relatives who clearly meant well. However, I couldn’t stop thinking about whether she was really comfortable in it. Would you sleep in polyester bedding? I certainly wouldn’t and I couldn’t imagine that babies would feel comfortable spending more than 5,000 hours a year in a sleeping bag like this. After doing some research, however, I soon realized that, when it came to babies’ sleeping bags, there wasn’t much choice available to buy in terms of products made entirely from natural materials. THE SOLUTION simply didn’t exist, which is why I saw it as my job and a challenge to find one. This was the beginning of Zizzz.
