Giveaway: Must-Have Baby Products, Conceived and Created by Moms
Posted on May 22 2017
Moms are problem solvers by nature, so it should not come as a surprise that many of the most innovative products on the baby market are the brainchild of moms who designed solutions for problems they faced daily.
Our founder and CEO, Janelle, invented the Stair Barrier out of necessity when she realized that she couldn’t find a safety gate that worked with the volute/curved banisters on the staircase in her family’s new home. For years, she successfully used her invention, a reinforced fabric safety gate with unique buckle system, with her own kids before deciding to turn it into a business, bringing the much-needed solution to parents with hard-to-gate staircases across the U.S.
Today, we’re inspired by other moms who, like Janelle, invented products out of the necessity of motherhood and took the leap to make them available to moms everywhere. We’ve partnered with Woombie, Poncho Baby, and Big Bee, Little Bee for a giveaway of must-have baby products, all conceived and created by moms just like you!
A look at our Mom-Invented Giveaway Partners:
Karen enjoyed a successful nursing career for 19 years before, out of sheer frustration over her newborn baby’s lack of sleep, she created the first prototype of the Woombie baby swaddle on her grandmother’s sewing machine in the middle of the night. The unique baby swaddle gently cocoons baby and allows for natural movement of arms, legs and hips just like in the womb. The Woombie requires NO wrapping, just put baby in and zip! Four-way stretch fabric allows for movement and a breathable and ventilated design allows excess heat to escape to prevent the risk of overheating.
Amy of Big Bee, Little Bee invented the Snow Angel bath towel to soothe her baby’s upset over the slow, cold, and uncomfortable drying-off process that followed her bath. After a few experiments and a rough first attempt, Amy figured out how to strategically section and design the towel in the shape of its namesake -a snow angel--which allows parents to quickly and easily dry all parts of baby after bathtime. Her unique bath towel features a padded back panel to protect baby from hard surfaces, an adjustable-length hood that grows with baby, soft terry-velour wings for easy drying of arms, legs and all the bits in between, and multiple panels to keep baby warm during dry-off.
Breastfeeding was a special and life-changing moment in Carolina’s life, but like many moms, she craved more privacy during the bonding time. Drawing inspiration from her cultural roots in the Colombian Andes Mountains, as well as other breastfeeding moms, she set out sketching the first designs for Poncho Baby’s nursing poncho. Last year, Poncho Baby® received a patent for its award-winning nursing cover with a flexible, boned neckline that easily allows moms to see their babies. Unlike other nursing covers on the market, Poncho Baby®’s contemporary design provides back coverage and more privacy, and the soothing, neutral colors don’t distract the baby during feedings. The machine-washable nursing covers are made in the U.S. with soft, 100% cotton muslin, and are multifunctional—they can be used as a stroller cover, sunshade, blanket and more.
