About this project
Tired of squeezy messes? So was I!
You've been there. I know I have.
Hi everyone! Jen here. I was tired of cleaning up squeezy baby food messes from the high chair, carpet, car seat, and especially my daughter’s clothes! I thought there had to be a better way to feed my daughter from a baby food pouch without the mess and without constant readjusting. At one point, I stopped giving my daughter the pouches—her favorite—because I was tired of cleaning it off of everything. I searched high and low for a solution, and when I couldn’t find one, I created Pouch Pal. Pouch Pal has eliminated messes like these for good.
Pouch Pal is a mom-invented, non-squeezable, mess-preventing, cap-keeping, time-saving baby food pouch case. At the heart of this Pouch Pal endeavor is my desire to spend more quality time with my family and less time cleaning messes and doing laundry. I see Pouch Pal as my contribution to the village it takes to raise all kids. I want you to enjoy the benefits of Pouch Pal as much as my family does!
Pouch Pal Supporters Say:
- “It was invented by a mom who knows my struggles.” – Ashley Hewell, The Frugal Ginger
- “The number of times my child squeezed a pouch and we got doused with a pouch = the number of times I wished someone would invent something like this…thank you!” – Tina Lease Watson, Facebook Fan
- “Super simple.” – Clarissa Hooper, Munchkins & Moms
- “I opened up the Pouch Pal, and happily discovered that basically every drop of apple sauce had been sucked out without needing any squeezing.” – Lindsay Gallimore, Maman Loup’s Den
How it Works
The magic of Pouch Pal is its pinch-and-push technology. Pouch Pal is designed in such a way that the sides of the baby food pouch are pinched in and its bottom is pushed up, which means that kids can eat all the food without parents having to constantly readjust and roll the baby food pouch. Pouch Pal is made of rigid plastic so little hands can’t squeeze the food everywhere. And the Pouch Pal is easy to load. Check it out.
Pouch Pal Features
If my campaign is funded at $30,000 or more, all backers will be given the option to swap out one Pouch Pal for the never-before-seen coral Pouch Pal!
If you're new to Kickstarter, read this!
Kickstarter allows new ideas to come to life through community support. Project creators like me set a funding goal and deadline. Here's where you come in. If you like the product, you can pledge money to make it happen. Pledging money is just like pre-ordering a product. If I reach my funding goal, I will be able to initiate a big production run of Pouch Pals. They'll be manufactured and sent out to all of our wonderful supporters in October. If the campaign does not reach the funding goal, all backers will receive a full refund!
How will the funds be spent?
If successfully funded, Pouch Pal will be able to place a large enough order quantity to achieve favorable volume production pricing. This production run will be used to fulfill the backer rewards, and further funds will be used for things like packaging, shipping costs, and patent development. Any funds raised beyond those hard costs will go towards efforts to get Pouch Pal into the portfolios of distributors and sales reps.

Risks and challenges
It's been a challenging two years since this Pouch Pal journey got underway, but it's been so amazing to see my idea come to life. We have a completed design and a mold for manufacturing. The packaging is gorgeous and boutique-ready. The manufacturing process can sometimes bring unexpected delays, but my team and I are familiar with the process and are very confident about our delivery time frame.
If there happen to be any delays, backers would be notified immediately and my team and I would work around the clock to deliver the product as quickly as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
