Meet just some of the gorgeous newborns who star on the
cover of their own personalised OHbaby! magazine.
Babies born in the first six months of this year were eligible
for a fantastic opportunity - their very own personalised OHbaby!
magazine. The promotion marked the 20-year anniversary of Huggies'
support for Plunket. And we were thrilled to be a part of it.
Hundreds of New Zealand parents have taken up the offer and
created a very special memento of their precious newborn.
Chloe Denise Hudson had her first trip to school in Papamoa at
just three weeks of age. She took part in big brother Caylum's
"show and tell" presentation. Caylum, aged five, and his two older
siblings adore her and give the tiny baby big hugs, says mum
Bronwyn. "But they all wish she didn't sleep so much so they could
play with her more! But I'm delighted she's the cruisiest little
girl in the world and already sleeping seven or eight hours most
nights," says Bronwyn.
Felicity Hannah McIntosh of New Plymouth, lies contentedly
asleep for her cover shot keepsake that will go into the memory box
in the McIntosh household. Her older siblings also have their own
mementoes. Cameron, aged three, has his umbilical cord clamp,
photos and cards from the few days he spent in the neo-natal unit
after his birth. Older sister Jodie, seven, has her first ballet
shoes taking pride of place, but Felicity will be the first with
her own personalised magazine.
Auckland newborn Caleb was given the name Wiriata as a middle
name in memory of his great great grandfather who fought in WWI
with New Zealand's Maori Battalion. His mother Angela, who is
comparing Caleb's progress to her own records in her original
Plunket book, says he's well on track to living up to his father's
expectations of becoming an All Black captain.
Jonah's full name is Jonah, Hiruharama Marcus Mangai, a name
rich with meaning. His parents wanted to give their Dunedin-born
baby a Hebrew name while Hiruharama is the Maori word for Jerusalem
and pays tribute to his Dad's Ngai Tahu descent. "Marcus" was added
in memory of a friend who recently died in a helicopter crash.
