Earn a FREE KINDERPACK- Customize Your Refer-a-Friend Rewards Cards!


Today's blog post is a mix of crafting/earning KP cash/ and spreading the KP love! In case you didn't hear, Kindercarry has a new referral program! It's super awesome and easy to use. When you sign up for an account with Kindercarry, you earn points for every purchase you make. You ALSO earn points for any purchases a friend makes using your unique referral link. We sweetened the pot for your friends by giving them a Kinderpack Coupon for $10 off their first carrier! Your link can be found here on the referral page (keep in mind each link is individual and yours will be different from the one below):


This link can, of course, be copied and pasted anywhere on the internet, in a text message, or any other way you'd like to electronically send it to a friend. But we thought it might be nice to have a hard copy to give to someone while they are asking you what carrier you have on! So we introduce our version of the "pass-along" card:
Kindercarry's Refer-a-friend cards!



These cards come double sided and are high quality! On the front they say "Hey fellow babywearer, you rock!". On the back, they say "Check out www.kindercarry.com for more info on my favorite baby carrier! Made in the USA, most comfortable, newborn to big kid, awesome designs. When you're ready to get one for yourself, use this URL and get $10 off!" Then there is a blank space for your UNIQUE referral link!

Now heres where the somewhat crafting part comes in. You can write out your link on the cards, but this might take more time, and undoubtedly a case of writers cramp. The next best thing we came up with is clear return labels from Avery.


This is a super inexpensive way to get your custom link, onto your cards! It's super easy since Avery.com offers a free template for this label. Input your link, stick the sheet of labels in your printer, make sure you UNcheck "fit to page", and PRINT! 



This is an excellent, low-cost way to earn LOTS of refer-a-friend points which of course ultimately earns YOU big discounts and even a free Kinderpack! Remember, the cards themselves are free (we just ask that you pay shipping which is $.70 for a pack of 10 cards) as we want to help you spread the KP love! 



We have one other option for you as well! If you prefer to print your own cards with your custom link already on them, you are of course welcome to do that as well! Here are the full quality card templates, and we have included a few more front sides that apply to more situations! Feel free to use any and all! 

 


What do you think about our refer-a-friend cards? Do you think you will use them? Do you have any suggestions for any other different styles of cards? Leave a comment below!

Kinderpack Storage Strap- Bi Fold

Kinderpack Storage Strap- Bi Fold

The 'Bi Fold ' is a method of storage created by a Kinderpack fan! Stephanie, of Mama Cat, Steph, has shared her method with us so that we can share with you! This is a great way to fold if you like to show off your collection of prints OR if you happen to have a few carriers in the same canvas color you can easily spot the one you are looking for without having to unroll multiples! 

Step 1: 

Lay your Kinderpack face up with all straps, buckles, and webbing loose. 
Step 1

Step 2: 

Fold in both sides of the waist band to meet their edges at the center. Also, bring the webbing up into the center of the panel.
Step 2

Step 3: 

Fold in the shoulder straps, face up, to the center of the body panel. You will have some "curling" at the edges of the panel. Make sure all webbing is tucked into the center under the straps.
Step 3

Step 4: 

Fold up your waistband so that it meets the center of your body panel. The warning label will be facing up (and upside down!) if you did this step correctly. 
step 4

Step 5: 

Fold down the headrest to meet the bottom edge of the waist band that you folded up. Your storage strap will be hanging down at this point. 
step 5

Step 6: 

Pull the elastic storage strap over the entire carrier. Be sure to place the strap in the center all the way around for the most secure hold! 
step 6
Now your carrier is rolled securely for storage!! If you are looking for another way to roll your carrier, please check out:

How to use the Kinderpack Storage Strap

How to use the Kinderpack Storage Strap

Have you been wondering what that long elastic strap that is sewn to the inside of your Kinderpack is? That, my friends, is your storage strap! This nifty little design is exclusive to Kinderpack and is a helpful way to keep your carrier organized for easy travel and storage.

RollChoices

There are 2 different ways you can roll your carrier for storage. The Classic Roll is the method that is mentioned in your user manual. Using this method can make your carrier into a neat little roll!

The second method is the Bi-Fold, created by one of our Kindercarry fans- Stephanie of Mama Cat, Steph. This leaves the carrier with a little more width, but puts the headrest on the outside so that you can easily see the carrier print! This way is Perfect for showing off your collection or to easily grab the correct carrier if you have more than one in the same colors!

Using either method to roll your storage strap will help to take up less space! This makes it easy to throw in many of the popular diaper bags, under your stroller, or store in your home!

How to Breastfeed in your Kinderpack

How to Breastfeed in your Kinderpack

We are in the middle of World Breastfeeding Week 2017, a campaign promoting the support and protection of breastfeeding. Breastfeeding and baby carrying go hand in hand as two biological norms that have tapered due to societal barriers. We at Kindercarry will continue to normalize breastfeeding by using nursing photos in our marketing materials and supporting our customers through their journey.

Here is a step by step tutorial showing "How to Breastfeed in your Kinderpack"


Breastfeed in Kinderpack - Loosen Shoulder Strap

1. Loosen the shoulder strap opposite the side you would like to nurse on.

Breastfeeding in your Kinderpack- Keep hand on baby

2. When you loosen any straps, always keep a hand on the baby for support as the carrier is no longer properly fitted. 

Breastfeeding in a Kinderpack - Loosen the waist belt

3. Loosen the waist belt just enough to move the carrier. Be sure to not loosen this too much and ALWAYS keep a hand on baby.

Breastfeeding in your Kinderpack- Shift baby to the side

4. Shift the entire carrier, including the baby, to the side on which you chose to breastfeed Don't forget to switch sides each time!

Breastfeeding in a Kinderpack- Latch

5. Latch baby! You can pull your breast of the top of your shirt.If you use the "two shirt method", be sure to pull up your top shirt before any tightening to make it easier for you!

Breastfeeding in Kinderpack- Adjust the baby

6. Check your latch. Breastfeeding in a carrier takes practice! If you have trouble getting baby to the right position you may need to adjust your shoulder straps further. You may need to hold your breast in place during your nursing session and that is OK!. Babywearing while feeding is not necessarily hands-free, but it can be similar to an extra hand!. **TIP** some wearers are able to use a rolled up wash cloth to prop up their breast and free up their hand. If at all you are having trouble getting into position, you may contact us for troubleshooting help! Info@Kindercarry.com

Breastfeeding in Kinderpack - Tighten your straps

7. Once the baby is securely latched, happy, and nursing it is time to tighten up your carrier! First, tighten your waist belt nice and snug to your body to secure the seat. Keep one hand on baby to keep the latch.

8. Tighten your loosened shoulder strap to comfort. You won't want to tighten this all the way as it can cause the baby to lose their latch, however, you can snug this up just a bit to bring baby closer to your body again. 

Breastfeeding in Kinderpack - You're all set!

9. You're ready to go!!! Breastfeeding in your Kinderpack can be a helpful way for you meet your baby's needs while tending to your other responsibilities!
