Kai Gives Back

$1.00 Regular price $22.99
To my fellow caretakers of medically complex children: you are not alone.
Two years ago our world was rocked with a baby boy born with ARPKD. Kai was immediately put on a ventilator at birth and had a double nephrectomy before he was a week old. As our miracle grew, his dialysis prevented him from having any desire to eat. Even at two years old, he vomits five, sometimes ten times a day, and now has a G/J feeding tube.
Ever since those early days in the NICU, we’ve wanted to find a way to give support to this community of selfless advocates and medical caretakers. Many of you have walked away from successful careers and lifestyles you worked hard to earn, in an effort to provide your children with the complex medical care they require. Through Instagram and Facebook I have sat as a wallflower with the occasional request for help and y’all have been my ROCK!
Kai Gives Back is a secret, unlisted product listing on the BapronBaby website just for you. The products we offer here have proven to be massively helpful to families with kids like ours who transition to those “first foods” long after the rest of the average child and I really want to give back to families in this group and provide you with something meaningful that will last throughout their childhood. Even more, I want this opportunity to relieve you as caretakers of the stresses of cleanup. Please ask any questions you have and feel free to pop over to Instagram.com/BapronBaby to see the wide range of uses for each of these items.
We ask that only ONE bapron or splash mat is purchased from this listing per medical household. We have so many families we’d love to help, and we have a limited amount of available products for this program. We pray it doesn’t get abused.
The Bapron:
Our best-selling “Bapron”, also known as a bib-apron hybrid, full-coverage bib, smock, or apron, is designed for comfort and safety. Because of their comfortable, secure-fitting horizontal ties and their full-coverage design, Baprons are the perfect companion for mealtime, art, and sensory play. And since they are waterproof, they provide excellent coverage for children with chest catheters and stoma dressings that need to be kept nice and dry :)
The Splash Mat:

This lightweight, waterproof mat is 45" in diameter and is designed to catch spills and splashes. With a child on dialysis, we use the splash mat as a play surface to prevent our carpet from vomit throughout the day. Other less specialized uses include:

- Under the high chair

- Indoor/Outdoor Picnics

- Potty Training/Waterproof nap pad

- Crafts and sensory play

- Under OR on top of tables for crafts and activities

Our fabric is a durable-yet-soft waterproof fabric that is quick-drying, stain resistant, machine washable, and 100% certified baby-safe (free of harmful chemicals and safe for even the most sensitive of skin). BapronBaby Baprons are made entirely of high quality eco-friendly fabric, and 100% responsibly made with fair labor standards.

** Due to the current global pandemic, all BapronBaby materials and production are now being split between two carefully vetted factories, located in the USA and China. Both of these facilities are held to the highest CPSIA production guidelines and fair labor laws. We stand behind the quality and content of our materials and offer a 1 year warranty against any manufacturing flaw or defect.
