I'm innately aware of the daily challenges a mother with young children faces. I know there is not a solution for every obstacle when raising babies, nevertheless, I believe eliminating one, frees you up to take on the others.
With four boys, 5 years and younger I am accustomed to chasing after toddlers, strollers, tricycles and even our english bulldog (Sumo).
Like all moms I only have 2 hands and with all the necessary items I need to grab, gather and hold; I was exhausted chasing after the pacifiers and toys my 6 month was constantly dropping. Not to mention, that once the toy hits the foul floor; be it the gym, grocery store and or park; its now time to clean it up. After 40 times in one day all the pacifiers and toys are dirty, mom is exhausted totally defeated, and baby is miserable.
Freckle Baby products solve baby's unhappy dilemma. By attaching a leash with a snap to a bib, as well as a blanket. Now baby's favorite toy or pacifier can be attached. No more lost pacifiers in the van! No more unhappy grocery trips because the toy fell.
Freckle Baby products are all 100% ORGANIC COTTON. The bibs have really hip prints on the front and back so if a mess happens you can always turn the bib around. Since the leash attaches from the back the toy hangs either way baby wear's the bib.
Both types of pacifier can be attached.
Below are photos of the 4 different colored gift sets. Each gift set includes a Bib, Hat, and Blanket. The blankets are 28"x30", perfect for the stroller or car seat. The hat and bib are sized for a 6 month old.
Where will the money go?
Freckly Baby is initially raising $15,000 USD to cover costs associated with manufacturing products. This includes:
- Bibs in bulk (all four colors schemes)
- Hats in bulk (all four colors schemes)
- Blankets in bulk (all four colors schemes)
- Samples for distribution and social media giveaways
- Profesional photography, since currently photography is done by me and I'm not a photographer:)
- Advertising with mom and baby blogs
- We can increase our bulk purchasing
- Develop additional products that match our existing line
- Social initiatives
- More sustainable operations
Our family: Jason, Kim, Emmitt, Turner, Miles, Baby Stewart, and Sumo the bulldog. I'm a stay at home mom creating a business I can manage from home while raising 4 little boys.
Risks and challenges
Once my Kickstarter funds the biggest obstacle will be production time.
These products are being manufactured in India, in a small town in the south called Tiruppur. I visited this town in November 2014. I went through the factories while on my journey to get these products manufactured. I can certify, from my own first hand account that these factories are free of child labor violations and have humane and clean working conditions.
The people of Tiruppur are hard working and humble people. They are diligent in earning the West's business in order to better their own lives. I am excited to work with a community where I can see the benefits in their lives first hand. On my website FreckleBaby.com I plan to document future visits and share the progress doing business provides the people of India.
Realizing these items are being made in small factories, lead times seem to fluctuate. Sometimes samples have been fast and other times they have been slow. I anticipate that if I place an order with them in April, we will see product by July.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
