We all can agree that sleep is very important not only for the baby but for the caregiver!

Raise your hand (hahaha not really) How many of ya'll been in the situation below?

 This is such a sweet situation to be in for the first 5-10 minutes then after that it is time to get back to reality.  So from this situation how do I move this peacefully sleeping baby without waking her?  This was the question that I had asked myself and I could not come up with any solution...so I found myself not moving...it was too risky to take the chance on waking the baby!  With two little ones 11 1/2 months apart plus a 5 year old this doesn't turn out well... #AintNobodyGotTimeForThat!

I get these looks!
I get these looks!

Soooooo you're saying there is a problem...and what do you do with a problem...yup you guessed it Google!!  I looked for something to help me solve my very common problem!  Found absolutely nothing that would help!  In fact I only found other people through the internet saying the exact same thing.."to move or not to move that is the question".  So I took it offline and I did the research through a survey that consisted of other caregivers including mommies, nurses, doctors, daycare workers...

drum roll please....they have the same problem with no resolution! 

Caught myself in this cycle!
Caught myself in this cycle!

I had to CHANGE the way I think about the situation to solve this very real need in not only my life but everyone else that has babies and enjoys to take advantage of extra time!

 Through my regular ‘work days’ from diaper changes, to baby shows and playdoh playing--I had developed a solution! 

 That is where SNUGABABY was designed! Literally in playdoh was my first mini prototype—true story!

 This is a ground breaking innovative new concept in the world for babies and their caregivers. It is a patent pending product with handles to use for not only making it easier to lift your baby but assuring your baby experiences restful sleep that started in your arms but ended up in their crib! It helps get extra time back for mommies and caregivers! No longer having to sit there with a baby asleep because you know once you move and get up to put them down they will wake up! The way Snugababy is made is very safe, durable, user friendly, and tailored to people with busy lifestyles. 

Testing and recommendations:

  • It has been tested up to 30 pounds.
  • I am recommending the weight up to 20 pounds. 
  • The recommended age is 0-9 months ( can be longer... use to your discretion)
  • My 7 month old is 17 pounds and 27 inches to give you an example.

                Check out the various benefits in using this

Keep Reading...it is just THAT awesome!
Keep Reading...it is just THAT awesome!
So basically after getting the Prototype and realizing all the amazing benefits! Who wouldn't want one!  IT WORKS!!
So basically after getting the Prototype and realizing all the amazing benefits! Who wouldn't want one! IT WORKS!!

Summary: SOOO...it is kind of like building your dream home...you know what you want in it because you know what works for you...this is THAT!  I have tried to think of absolutely everything that can help us mommies and caregivers out! Yes it is all about the baby but it is also about us!

Not only am I the inventor but I am also the consumer...I honestly can't go a night without my snugababy (prototype that is). 

Personal Short story: I had to go out of town for my grandpa's funeral...so my ever so sweet husband cared for all 3 kiddos by himself (I was definitely praying for strength for him (smile)) His one plea was "don't take the snugababy"!  That one sentence speaks volume...because he was the one that was skeptical...hehehe...but after using it for the first time he was Addicted!

  • ***Due to the design and location of handles this will fit in carseats***
  • but according to the CSFTL (carseat for the littles) recommendation states NOTHING can go into carseats other than supplied by the manufacture and the baby of course!  So therefore I will not endorse or recommend this to go in carseats!

What will your pledges help me accomplish…

  • First and foremost it will get my first production run from the manufacture so I can deliver YOUR very first SNUGABABY!

Risks and challenges

So as far as risks and challenges- I know they do exist! I am a very open minded person and I believe that is the only way to learn...is to walk through challenges it will only make me stronger.

What makes me overcome these is I know I will make mistakes but I am more about learning from those to become a better entrepreneur or rather mompreneur!
I am definitely not one to claim "to know it all" but when I believe in the product...My heart is in it 100%!
God has brought me this idea--so I KNOW He is directing my paths and I am trusting Him with all my heart...So I continue to pray that my faith will be strengthened in this journey with Snugababy!
