October is Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome Awareness Month
It is NAS Awareness Month here in Tennessee! Last year, in Tennessee alone, we had around one thousand babies, born addicted to drugs, and the numbers continue to grow, with prescription drug use so common among households. We are proud to be a company, really representing a change in the world, for the many babies and families fighting addiction withdrawal. Please stand with us in spreading awareness.
Tune in to our weekly experience journals as a volunteer cuddler. No private information is disclosed, for privacy purposes and laws; we simple share the love of giving time to these babies. We hope to inspire, and recruit "KUDDLERS" in every state in the US!
Topic of the WEEK-"OUR NEW BOOK, KUDDLES, AT THE BIGGEST CHILDREN'S BOOK FESTIVAL IN NORTH AMERICA!"
"Kuddles," our new book for families to cope with having a baby born in the NICU, made it's public debut at the biggest children's book festival in North America, "Orange County Children's Book Festival!" Shonjrell Ladner performed on stage for early readers, as well as celebrity authors, with over 30,000 attendees! We had a blast, and look who owns a copy of our book, Shawn Wayans!
I'm so proud to share my biggest, life changing announcement yet for my cause, patent pending invention, and many others!
My invention was chosen to be showcased in Las Vegas at the ABC Kids Expo, "Invention Connection," October 17th-19th! I am going back to Vegas!!!
About the Inventor
I believe that every baby is, “Born to be kuddled.” Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome occurs in newborns, as a result of a mother’s drug use during pregnancy. I am a volunteer “Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Cuddler” at a leading Medical Center, where I comfort babies in the absence of their parents.
I submitted my first utility patent for the "NICU KUDDLER," used to help soothe drug addicted babies, who are suffering from withdrawal symptoms. Witnessing these babies firsthand during my own pregnancy hospitalization, I saw they needed extra love and attention, and I'll continue to work tirelessly to improve their start to life.
