Lalan

The infant mortality rate in India is often the result of low birth weight, which hinders newborns’ ability to keep their temperature under control. To complicate things, medical resources that would, otherwise, help to overcome this problem are very rare in rural communities. Lalan is a kit made up of four (4) products, among which include: a “kangaroo”, front-style baby carrier shirt, a rice-filled blanket to keep the baby warm when not in the carrier, an illiterate-friendly thermometer bracelet, and an infant mortality awareness poster.

Lalan is one of 15 projects on display at Design(s), l’expo 2012.
