We're so excited to announce that MEMEENO has partnered with Miracle Babies, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) families in need. MEMEENO will contribute to the Miracle Babies Care Program, which distributes care bags on a monthly basis to NICU families in Southern California. MEMEENO will donate belly bands for care bags to be distributed to select hospitals in Orange County.
“As a NICU mama of a miracle baby, I know how overwhelming it can be to care for a premature or sick infant,” says Alie, the company’s founder. “My hope is that with our partnership with Miracle Babies, our belly bands will contribute to their great work of helping NICU families transition from hospital to home.”
The MEMEENO belly band was designed by Alie Al-Jadda, a mother of preemie, (born at 32 weeks) who was a NICU baby for one month. Upon returning home, baby suffered severe bouts of colic. Mama tried everything to calm her baby but nothing worked except for a belly band with ties that was given to her by a friend.
After her second baby, Alie designed a better, modern hook-and-loop band as a natural, external remedy for gas, fussiness and colic that’s also a beautiful accessory for babies to wear. The band comes in various trendy prints, making MEMEENO the largest vendor for high fashion organic cotton belly bands.
“The Orange County auxiliary of Miracle Babies is proud to partner with MEMEENO to enhance the care bags we distribute at area hospitals,” says Morgan Stern, President Miracle Circle Orange County Auxiliary. “The Miracle Babies care bags provide comfort items for parents to use during the many hours spent crib-side and these belly bands are a welcome addition.”
The MEMEENO baby belly band updates a classic practice of belly binding or banding. It applies the optimal amount of coverage, compression and natural warmth on a baby's belly. This gives the baby womb-like security and just enough hug around the tummy to ease out gas and relieve aches, making it one of the safest, most effective external remedies for gas and colic relief.
The band is uniquely designed with a baby's safety and comfort in mind. It’s made of the highest quality GOTS-certified organic cotton fabrics and all prints use organic water-based dyes.
MEMEENO has gained nationwide recognition; it received the National Parenting Product Award and was given a Best in Show “Honorable Mention” award by the LA Baby Show in November. Doctors, nurses, sleep consultants and trainers are recommending the band as a useful sleep aid and colic and gas reliever. Thousands of parents have tried the band and are loving the results.
MEMEENO is a luxury baby essentials brand, based in southern California, aimed at making parents' lives easier and providing the tools needed to help snuggle, soothe and calm babies in a safe, stylish and effective way. It’s signature product, the baby belly band has helped countless parents treat gas, fussiness, constipation, and colic in their babies using a natural, external and safe method. Select MEMEENO products can be purchased online on Amazon and memeeno.com. MEMEENO also gives a portion of its sales to GiveLight Foundation, an organization that creates loving homes and schools for orphaned children worldwide.
About Miracle Babies:
Miracle Babies provides financial and emotional support to families with critically ill babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The founding purpose is to support these NICU families by providing needs-based financial assistance to low-income families through a Family Assistance Program. By helping to address some of the financial barriers that keep parents away from their new baby (transportation, groceries, and child care costs), the organization helps moms and dads get to and from the NICU more often, increasing rates of breastfeeding and Kangaroo Care, a skin-to-skin practice. In addition to direct financial assistance program, Miracle Babies supports NICU families through the distribution of MB Cares Bags. These bags are distributed on a monthly basis to San Diego and Orange County hospitals and contain items designed to comfort families during their NICU stays.
