Knuma Connect gets high praise in Asia

For three dads from Leeds, this has been an incredible month! The Knuma Connect 4-in-1 Highchair is not only exhibiting for the very first time at a lifestyle exhibition in Tokyo, but Knuma Connect has also launched in Taiwan too! It’s a huge delight to everyone at Knuma that this 4-stage adjustable highchair is proving such a hit in Asia.

Connecting with parents in Taiwan

One renowned Taiwanese blogger and photographer, known as Max, is really singing the praises of the Knuma Connect. Rather than focusing on the aesthetics of this stylish piece of baby furniture as many of us do in the UK, this blogger was really impressed by the safety features of the Connect and how easy it was to assemble at every stage.

Max loves how versatile the Knuma Connect is saying “it’s a comfortable child’s table and chair. What’s more, it can be used as a dinner table and chair, where the child can have meals on their own or with parents.” He goes on to say that having just decorated his home in the Muji style, he loves how well the highchair fits in.

“It’s both good-looking and safe”

Max is also really impressed by the well-designed safety features of the Knuma Connect. “At the bottom of the chair legs and the table legs, there are white non-slip feet stopping the chair sliding and leaning forward. There are two grooves at the bottom of each chair frame, which fix the table top in place. In addition, there are safety studs fixing the footrest in place.” He says “the Knuma Connect 4-in-1 Highchair is like a custom-made product as its dimensions are quite sKnuma Connect taiwan blog boy eating at highchairuitable for Ray”

Max finishes his article saying that “The designs of children’s products become meaningful when children rely on the products entirely, and love them strongly. This is because children are straightforward and honest. If they like it, they are happy and willing to use it. Otherwise, they don’t use it at all.” So it’s great to hear that Ray (his 2 year old) didn’t want to leave the highchair and that he rushes to the table and enjoys playing building blocks on it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WIN a Knuma Huddle with The Dad Network ‘cos Dads need sleep too!

If you’re a new dad or a dad-to-be you’ll be all too aware that the first six weeks are the most exhausting with your baby’s lack of sleep and for mum and you desperate for forty winks. But it does provide hilarious moments for the rest of us watching dads fall asleep in the most random places!

With Father’s Day coming up, we wanted to help one lucky dad or dad-to-be get some more sleep. So we’ve teamed up with the brilliant Dad Network to give away a Knuma Huddle 4-in-1 bedside crib. It may not be hi-tech, but it’s an essential piece of kit. Just by dropping one side of the crib down, you or mum can sleep next to your baby so that you can feed and comfort your newborn without the hazards of co-sleeping in the same bed. Dad Network awarded it Gold in the Dad Rated Product Awards 2015.

You’ll probably have a lot of parents sugar-coating the sleep issue for you. Being dads of toddlers ourselves, we thought we’d share a little wisdom and encouragement with you instead.

On average parents get just 5.1 hours of sleep a night in the first year of their baby’s life. Research says you need 6+ hours a night to be refreshed and functioning efficiently, so it’s normal to feel the effects of sleep deprivation on your memory, temper, mood, energy levels and appetite. If you operate machinery or do a lot of driving, please be careful and take this New South Wales ‘Test Your Tired Self’ test.

Try shift sleeping. Let mum do a feed and then go to bed about 8 - 9pm whilst you stay downstairs with baby. Do an evening feed and then go up to bed with baby about midnight and let mum do the next feed. That way mum is getting the chance of undisturbed sleep and you hopefully will later on.

On the up side, baby’s sleep patterns do change with their development stages, so if they’re a bad sleeper now, there is the chance that this will change as they develop. One major turning point is often around 12 weeks as they start to develop their day and night rhythm. By about 3 to 5 months most babies have learned to sleep for 5 hours at night.

And last but not least, remember that time flies. So even if you can’t see the light at the end of the sleep deprived tunnel at the moment, your newborn will grow up and you will get more sleep soon!
