About

Piperoos 100% organic cotton baby change pads
Piperoos 100% organic cotton baby change pads

 After having a baby, one of the most useful gifts I received were some handmade cotton pads. These became the inspiration for Piperoos. A super soft cotton pad that was handy everywhere: on your shoulder for spitups, on the changing table for accidents, on the ground for tummy time, and in the diaper bag for all those moments away from home. 

Now we are working to make these available to new parents everywhere. we plan on using the funds to cover design costs, fabric, packaging, and other expenses as Piperoos continues to grow. We are being environmentally conscious in everything we do. The cotton is 100% organic, the labor will be done by local seamstresses, and the packaging is recycled and uses soy dyes. Hopefully we can help make the world a better and more beautiful place for new babies and parents too!

Risks and challenges

Setbacks are tough for sure, but I expect them!

Hopefully my day job experience can help me here. I was a project manager for several years for large consulting projects (think 25-60 people both in the US and offshore) with $10 million budgets and lots of work streams. This experience has helped me understand that you just need to break a problem down and tackle it one step at a time. I'll take that approach on this project and of course I'll reach out to my support network to help me too.

Some risks we might encounter:
- unavailability of fabric: if this happens we'll just have to be flexible about the pattern selection and look elsewhere.
- delays in package production: we'll use persistence to keep pushing this forward as fast as we can.
- not being funded by Kickstarter :-) : we'll have to rely on our great backers to help us get the word out
