The Bunty Blouse
The Bunty Blouse is a one of a kind infant carrier - thoughtfully designed to be worn with traditional south asian attire such as the saree. Mothers can wear the Bunty Blouse in the comfort of their own home, providing life saving skin-to-skin contact for the baby.
The first 28 days of an infant’s life are some of the most precious, but also most vulnerable days.
Nearly 2.6 million newborn lives are lost annually during the neonatal period alone - largely from preventable causes.
At this rate, by the year 2030, an estimated 30 million newborn lives will be lost, with India bearing nearly 25% of the global burden at an infant death rate of 25 per 1,000 live births.
Preterm birth is the leading cause of under-five mortality, and with 15 million infants born preterm annually, it accounts for 44% of India’s neonatal mortality burden.
