SAN DIEGO, Oct. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- For 16 years, Sandy Clark's company, DoubleBlessings.com (http://www.doubleblessings.com), and its patented EZ-2-Nurse Twins Nursing Pillows have helped countless mothers make the choice to nurse their twins. Today, DoubleBlessings.com is celebrating its Sweet 16 with the launch of a brand-new green product: San Diego Bebe (http://www.sandiegobebe.com), a patent-pending new line of eco-nursing pillows designed for health- and earth-conscious mothers and their babies.
"About a year ago, we set out to change the way we manufacture products with a focus on using more environmentally friendly, healthy and safe materials," Clark, a mother of twins, explained. "We wanted to go green for a new generation of eco-minded mothers, not because it was the PC thing to do, but because it was the right thing to do -- the only thing to do."
Clark knows that parents are seeking out safe, healthy and green alternatives for everything from diapers and baby food, to cribs and clothing, so she went to work researching alternative materials. After countless discussions with leading doctors, engineers, manufacturers and product developers, the DoubleBlessings.com team found the holy grail of baby-safe materials: A hypo-allergenic, non-toxic, odor-free, glue-free, foam-free, lead-free, Phthalate-free, fully recyclable material that is non-flammable without the use of fire-retardant chemical additives.
The resulting San Diego Bebe Eco-Nursing Pillow allows a mother to comfortably nurse her baby in private. Another version, the San Diego Bebe Twin, is larger than the San Diego Bebe, and allows simultaneous nursing of twins.
San Diego Bebe was inspired by a young mother that Clark witnessed unsuccessfully breastfeeding her baby at a San Diego beach one day. As the mother struggled to discreetly nurse while keeping a blanket across her shoulder, her baby wailed from heat and hunger. Clark resolved then to design a product that would help with this mom's quest for privacy. And, San Diego Bebe was born.
"Watching that mother and baby, I thought, why should discretion be so difficult?" said Clark. "My primary goal over the years has been to promote the womanly art of breastfeeding. Having privacy during the intimate, God-given act of nursing would further encourage this special bonding time between a mother and her child."
To that end, San Diego Bebe has a built-in Privacy Cover, providing complete discretion for both mom and baby. The cover's lightweight mesh construction provides continuous airflow, keeping both mom and baby comfortable. San Diego Bebe's signature Comfort Bolster wraps around the outside of the pillow for added security. Like the EZ-2-Nurse Twins pillow before it, San Diego Bebe has an angled top surface and detachable back pillow for mom's optimal support and comfort. It is available in a variety of chic new colors and plush new fabrics.
Clark will introduce San Diego Bebe at the All Baby & Child Kids Expo at Booth #7212, the world's largest juvenile trade show, October 10-13, 2010, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Learn more at http://www.doubleblessings.com and http://www.sandiegobebe.com.
