On the last day of the 2015 ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas, local nonprofit KIDS (Kids In Distressed Situations) made its annual rounds to confirm any donations from show exhibitors. That’s when staff at Baby K’tan decided they would donate what could serve as an entire living room of furniture, including two futons, four side tables and six shelving units. Volunteers for K.I.D.S. collected the items and shipped them off to be used locally.
“Each year, we’ve seen some amazing donations by fellow exhibitors at the end of the show,” says Reina Christian, marketing manager at Baby K’tan. “We were absolutely honored and humbled to be able to participate as well. Philanthropy is an important part of our corporate culture, and this year we had the chance to serve local Las Vegas families with the much-needed furniture donation.”
Brainstorming for a re-launched booth at ABC 2016 is already underway at Baby K’tan.

Happy New Year Baby K’tan Retailers !
It is with great excitement that we’d like to announce that your Baby K’tan representative starting this new year, 2015, will be Tracy Urban.
Tracy L. Urban has the privilege of representing some of the finest manufacturers, in various capacities, in the maternity, juvenile and natural products industry. It was because of her relationship with Dr. William Sears and his wife Martha that Tracy and her husband started a baby carrier manufacturing business in 1987. The Urbans sold their business in 2006.
Tracy then went to work teaching at the third largest birthing hospital in California. This put to use her certifications as a Childbirth Educator, Lactation Educator, Happiest Baby Educator, and Basic Life Support.
In 2007 she was offered the opportunity to work as a Manufacturer’s Representative for a soft goods company in the baby industry. Once other manufacturers learned of her career shift, it wasn’t long before she had compiled a wonderful portfolio of companies/products to represent.
Tracy is a babywearing pro, and can help you, your staff and customers with all your Baby K’tan needs! She will be covering all Baby K’tan accounts in California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and Hawaii.
Here is Tracy’s contact information:
o. 951-461-7424 | t. 800-727-3683 | m. 951-704-5042 | f. 951-231-9817
And please remember, all purchase orders need to be submitted via your Baby K’tan representative.
We look forward to hearing from you soon and stocking your Baby K’tan carrier orders. Thank you for continued support and Happy 2015!
No better way to start the year for Baby K’tan, than by catching a tweet like this one from Broadway actress and singer, N’Kenge. Ensemble in Broadway’s “Motown-The Musical”. A perfect debut for the mothering “stage”. N’Kenge? You’ll rock this one too.
