Get a baby Bummy today and start SAVING!
Imagine sitting peacefully on the front row at church when you suddenly smell something horrible. You look down and your baby has a blowout that leaked through his clothes and onto your nice dress. You politely leave in the middle of the meeting to clean up the stinky mess. Upon returning to your seat he does it again...and then AGAIN. This happened to me and as I sat in silent frustration, I thought, “there has to be a way to stop diaper blowouts!”
The idea of the Baby Bummy was born.
I pushed the idea aside until a few weeks later when my husband and I took our six children to Disneyland. We were having a wonderful time, until our youngest child had the diaper blowout of all blowouts. The smell. The mess. The embarrassment. We lost an hour of our magical day just trying to clean up poop! I washed our son in the public bathroom sink while my husband scrubbed the expensive stroller, hoping the stain would come out. It was a disaster. In that moment, I knew I needed to take my idea of the Baby Bummy and make it a reality. There’s no way we were the only parents struggling with this problem. It was time to end diaper blowouts once and for all.
Upon returning home, I created the first prototype of the Baby Bummy. I put it on our baby and waited for the inevitable blowout. When his first would-be blowout arrived, I was thrilled! I didn’t even realize he had a blowout right away because the mess was contained. No dirty clothes, no stained sheets. The clean up was a breeze, compared to his usual blowout.
I never realized how big of a problem diaper blowouts truly are until I started sharing this new invention with my friends. The more I shared, the more horror stories I heard. One of the worst stories was about a newly married bride and groom being handed their cute niece, just before taking a family photo. Watch the clip below to see what happened next. A total disaster that could could have been avoided with Baby Bummy.
After hearing that story I started working with a professional seamstress, duplicated my design and made prototypes to share. It's been so exciting to hear their successes with the Baby Bummy. From protecting white christening gowns and strollers to couches and car seats. It’s safe to say, Baby Bummy is a hit.
It’s time to make Baby Bummy accessible to everyone. Without the Baby Bummy, parents' lives can be disrupted in the dirtiest of ways. Don't live with regret wishing, "I should have had a Baby Bummy." Together we can make this product a reality. There is finally a solution to diaper blowouts.
So what is the Baby Bummy exactly?
The Baby Bummy is a reusable diaper cover that keeps your child's poops and piddles where they belong...in the diaper and off their clothes. Babies can't control their own pooping power, as a result, all babies experience blowouts from time to time, even with a freshly changed diaper. Blowouts seem to come at the most inconvenient times, leaving behind stained clothing, furniture, rugs, car seats, and strollers. Raising six babies we threw away hundreds, maybe even thousands, of dollars due to poop stains.
Do your child’s diaper blowouts leave you not feeling Loved, Hugged, or Pampered?
What happens after your baby has a blowout contained by the Baby Bummy?
1. Remove the Baby Bummy and rinse out in cold water, if undesirables end up on the Baby Bummy. Place it in the included Baby Bummy storage bag. It’s leak proof and ensures the poop (or smell) doesn't escape inside your purse or diaper bag.
2. Put a clean Baby Bummy on your child to prevent a second blowout from occurring when your guard is down.
3. Once home, rinse the Baby Bummy and bag in the sink. Both products are machine washable so flip them inside-out (make sure to secure the Velcro on the Baby Bummy first) and let your washing machine work its magic.
4. Lay the products out to dry and before you know it, you have a clean Baby Bummy and bag ready to prevent the next disaster from happening.
The Patent Pending Baby Bummy comes in two sizes.
- Small size covers diapers sized 1 and 2
- Large size covers diapers sized 3 - 5
With the help of local seamstresses we were able to replicate my original Baby Bummy design for prototypes. These have been successfully tested by other parents on their infants and toddlers. While these first Baby Bummys have been great, they aren’t affordable and produced efficiently at a small scale level.
To make the Baby Bummy accessible to all parents I will need professional manufacturing to produce the custom design. We are so excited to have found the perfect manufacturer that will produce high quality Baby Bummys for the masses.
So why isn’t the Baby Bummy available yet?
To make the Baby Bummy a reality, we will need to make a large, bulk order of products. This is where you come in.
By pre-ordering the Baby Bummy, you can help us fulfill our order minimum and receive one of the first Baby Bummys available to the public. You can finally stop worrying about diaper blowouts.
I want you to have your Baby Bummy as soon as possible. So, here’s my plan to achieve that:
• August: Make lots of new friends on Kickstarter, execute new manufacturing agreements, and implement manufacturing standards
• September: Finalize manufacturing prototyping and packaging design.
• October: Place order with manufacturer
• November: Finalize the shipment process and begin fulfillment
Risks and challenges
I have worked really hard to cover all of the ground work to get the Baby Bummy to this point. With your help, I can cross the goal line and start changing lives with Baby Bummy.
If diaper blowouts have taught me one thing, it’s that life doesn’t always go as planned. Some the potential risks and challenges with this endeavor include:
MANUFACTURING: Sometimes there is miscommunication with manufacturers and orders get made with the wrong materials or incorrect sewing techniques. If this happens or any other unforeseeable events, it can slow the manufacturing process.
PRODUCT ADJUSTMENTS: There will likely be some minor adjustments to improve the final Baby Bummy and the leather products offered in our Kickstarter. I have already seen one round of pre-production samples from the manufacturer, but will likely want to see at least one more round before the final order is placed.
BUDGET: At the moment, we have clear pricing proposals from our manufacturing partners. However, nothing is signed or set in stone. With ever changing worldwide politics and economies, this could change. It is unlikely our pricing will be affected, but there is always a potential risk until an order is placed.
FULFILLMENT: Our sourcing partner assures us that we won't experience any issues with fulfillment, but I know that there are many moving pieces that can go wrong. I will do my best to stay on top of everything and work very closely with those involved to meet our outlined deadlines.
Every pledge helps us get one step closer to making the Baby Bummy a household necessity. I know this product will make your life as a parent easier. No more stressing about blowouts and cleaning up big, stinky messes. I can’t wait to hear your Baby Bummy success story.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
