Tired of all those snaps, buttons & velcro? Yankers have no fasteners making changing a breeze!

Yankers

Hi, my name is Rosalee Rester and I am a mom and the inventor of Yankers.
 
As a parent I found myself changing my infant between 8 and 12 times a day, struggling with kicking legs while trying to match up snaps or buttons, line up velcro and zippers.
 
There had to be an easier way!  That’s when I came with the idea for Yankers.
 

Yankers are stylish, modern, all-in-one outfits designed with a unique and simple pull down panel in the back. This panel allows easy access to your baby's diaper without having to deal with any snaps or fasteners.  So quick and easy!

I need your help to Kickstart this small business idea.  I've got big plans and a bunch of cute new designs.   Please join in, there are lots of levels of support and these make great gifts for parents of infants.

Yankers is made for smart moms and dads. It is a new and different way of changing your baby and best given as a baby shower gift.

Feedback from parents are overwhelmingly positive:

Hi Rosalee

We LOVE Yankers! A friend passed a onesie that her daughter had outgrown to us when our youngest son was born three months ago. 
We're hooked. Although it seems a bit excessive to ship baby clothes from the US, we will continue to do so as the baby grows. I'll also have a look at some of the other goodies on the site. 
Keep up the good work. I'm off to recommend you to my Mummy friends on Facebook. 
Best wishes.

Yankers are the best thing since sliced bread!  They are so soft and comfy and so very practical. Easy to put on, easy to wear, and easy to check the diaper - the best part is that our son looks adorable in all the colors.  People always comment on the unique design wherever we go and we just love them.  The Retro Union Suit is a particular favorite, resembling a mini Star Trek outfit.  Go right now and get a dozen, you won't be sorry!

At a first glance the Yankers jumpsuit I received as a gift looked like it could be hard to put on a squirming baby. Nothing could be farther from the truth! It was super easy, and made diaper changes a breeze, too. I ended up getting several more...they come in a ton of adorable styles and colors. I love Yanker!

I purchased the cooper union suit for my daughter and it is by far one of my favorite things to put on her.  I love the retro look and the soft stretchy material.  It has been especially great for quick changes because she is a very busy little girl.  On top of being a really cute outfit, they also doubled as long underwear over the winter.

My patternmaker Jamie, started altering this pattern before she had children. 6 months ago she gave birth to a baby girl and the last time I met with her she said "I FINALLY GET THESE. Yankers are amazing." It made me feel stellar coming from someone who makes a zillion patterns for folks.

And, the other day the director of some day care centers in the Netherlands approached me about the possibility of using Yankers in their facilities.

Make your life easier and add Yankers to your babies wardrobe. Most folks who try Yankers end up coming back for more.

Yankers

To better understand how Yankers works check out my short 40 second video here:

I invented Yankers after my son was born and never took the product much further than selling them on my website but customers, friends and colleagues have been telling me I'm crazy not to take this time-saving and innovative product to the next level. 

Parents continually comment that they can't believe such a product does not already exist in the marketplace. I am raising funds to take this unique and original product out of my basement where I am currently hand-dying them and moving them into a local cut and sew factory. These funds will help me launch my new designs that require more than one colorway and therefore cannot be dyed. It will also help me do some marketing.

What you can do

Help bring this fun, easy and fashionable product into the mainstream:

1. by prepurchasing one or more Yankers 

2. by giving this kickstarter and www.yankersbaby.com some link love in your blogs, twitter feeds, on facebook and

3. by telling all your harried, busy and frustrated parent friends about Yankers. 

Yank! Yank!

What I will do with the $

If I meet my goal of $15,000:

1. I plan to purchase 3 to 4 colorways of a special blend I use in making my Yankers. $4500

2. I plan to cut and sew locally (hopefully in PDX). $4500

3. Shipping & Handling $2500

3. I plan to do some marketing to get the word out. $2000

4. Pay kickstarter and amazon fees $1500K.
