I’ll be honest – I never thought I could ever find a job that excited me as much as presenting does. And, despite being surrounded by entrepreneurial family on both sides, starting my own business was never a road that I thought life would take me down.
Until I became a mum.
It was in May 2012 that both my second son and the idea for this business were born.
My eldest son Rory was 19 months and our new baby Thomas only a few days old when my husband Jack had decided to take Rory out to a local playbarn. After some persuasion - (he’s a very fuss-free rugby boy who will only carry something if it’s either a giant kit bag or if it fits in his pocket!) – he took the change bag with him.
When they returned a couple of hours later he reported an amusing but less that pleasant incident involving a significant nappy change and the unlucky omission of baby wipes from the change kit – you can probably picture the scene. Eurgh!
A thought suddenly flashed through my mind. Why had no one invented a complete, individually packed, single-use nappy change kit that – in homage to bag-hating dads – fits into your back pocket? Then we could just grab and go, knowing that we were covered for all eventualities. Easy!
That was it really. A moment experienced in some form by parents the world over every day — and one that could so easily have been forgotten.
