Join the moKee movement this Mother's Day
By Becca Smith, moKee Ambassador and Mother of two
Mother’s Day brings about mixed emotions to many as it comes around each year. But the very first mother’s day you experience as a new mother is really very special. It’s the start of a series of traditions that come year after year – a time when as a mother you can reflect on your journey as a parent.
Here at moKee we want to celebrate this special day with our customers and followers by launching a new and exciting space…
We are introducing ‘moKee Folks’– a place where parents can come to discuss anything and everything about parenting. From sleep problems, feeding tips to product reviews – it’s a place to speak with fellow parents and also get the latest information on all things Mokee – including new product launches!
As a mother I found that I was bombarded by tonnes of advice during my son’s first year and it could get quite overwhelming. My own mother was enormously helpful and still is but as healthcare guidelines changed over the years it meant that her advice normally contradicted what I was hearing from health care workers. Such as when to wean a baby (years ago it was as early as 4 months, now it’s recommended at 6 months). Advice on car seats, the best apps to use etc are all 21st century parenting dilemmas.
Even strangers in supermarkets would offer their advice telling me the best way to feed my baby and how to get a baby to sleep through the night.
This, combined with ever decreasing services for parents and babies, meant that I always turned to ‘Doctor Google’ for advice. This is not advised! The Mokee Movement aims to encourage parents to reach out online and to create a forum where parents can ask anything they want without the fear of being judged or questioned. In the first year, there’s so much to learn as a new parent and at Mokee Folks we hope to provide a safe space for communication and hopefully, we can create some Mokee friendships along the way!
To celebrate the launch of moKee Folks we are celebrating Mother’s Day with a giveaway of Milestone Cards. Anyone who buys a Woolnest or Mini Cot in the week leading up to Mother’s Day (25th -31st March) will receive these cute cards for free. These cards are perfect for helping Mums save special memories – memories are for mums.
moKee have also partnered with Yellow Meadow, Granatovo & MeaBee Design, offering exciting prizes in the Mother’s Day competition. The winner will receive 1 x moKee £100 Gift Card, 1 x Granatovo £100 Gift Card, 1 x Yellow Meadow robe and 1 x MeaBee Design blanket. Other lucky winners will receive a 10% discount code to be used at moKee from 25th March – 31st March.
We will also be encouraging parents to ‘share the love’ and help other Mums and Dads by sharing discount codes. Each current moKee customer who is signed up to our newsletter will get a personal 10% discount code, valid from 29.03.19 – 12.04.2019. This code can then be shared with friends. After 2 weeks we will check which code has been used most and the 3 people with the top codes will get exclusive Mother's Day gifts.
It’s all about creating the Mokee Movement –
a community of parents who understand the highs and lows of parenting and want to ‘share the love’ with Mokee. So whether it’s your first mother’s day or if you’re further down the line on your parenting journey, come and join the moKee Movement at moKee Folks.
