The Painter’s Wife and Caleb’s Closet Honors International Babywearing Week!

October 13, 2011

I love mompreneurs. We always ask each other’s opinions on the stuff we buy for our kids and having a fellow mom at the helm of a store is always more assuring than a bored salesclerk at the mall. Most of the stuff that mompreneurs sell have been handpicked and are usually products they use on their own babies.

Caleb’s Closet Ecostore is run by mom and physician Dr. Lei Alfonso. She used to be a barrio physician, but postponed her training to be a full-time, super hands-on mother. Named after her baby, Caleb, she describes her Multiply store as an “an online source for modern solutions to natural parenting.” Her initial product line features cloth diapers, toys, breastfeeding and babywearing gear, as well as natural skincare products. It’s a business and an advocacy at the same time, as Doc Lei proudly raises the banner for fair trade, attachment parenting, breastfeeding and babywearing. She wants to offer products that will cater to every budget and is constantly looking for new things to add to her shop.


The latest addition to Caleb’s Closet is a product I featured a while ago – The Bailey Wrap!

And now to commemorate International Babywearing Week, Dr. Lei has generously sponsored one Bailey Wrap to be given away to one lucky reader!

Giveaway notes:

  • One (1) Bailey Wrap will be raffled off to one (1) reader (color depends on available stock)
  • The giveaway is open NATIONWIDE in the Philippines.
  • Duration of the giveaway is from October 13, 2011 to October 26, 2011. Entries may be submitted until 11:59pm of October 26, 2011.
  • The winner will be picked by electronic raffle on October 27, 2011.

To join:

  • Fill out the form below. (If you can’t see the form, access it here)
  • Fill in the blanks in this sentence and post it on the Caleb’s Closet Facebook Page Wall: “I love to wear my baby at the __________ because ______________.”

Happy International Babywearing Week! Good luck to everyone!

    Happy International Babywearing week! Wow, I never knew there was such a thing, moms in my place wear their babies all the time, using just an ordinary blanket.

      And that’s where it all started! Babywearing is a cultural practice and the movement aims to bring it back to the mainstream. 🙂
