Babies are messy! New mom Johanna Romaniuk realized just how messy, when her 5-month-old daughter was determined to feed herself; afterwards, the floor was a spillabration! Out of necessity, Johanna made a high chair food catcher that was lightweight, compact and durable. She made it easy to attach, detach, clean and store on the high chair. The high chair food catcher was the beginning of Wupzey, a company dedicated to making products that make life with baby less messy. Wupzey now has a full line of products including car seat covers, high chair covers, bibs, coveralls, floor mats, shopping cart covers and diner covers.
Paula Roeske considered herself a very organized person when she had her first child. She went so far as stack all of his baby food jars by type in her pantry. She did not realize how easily these jars could topple and fall until her 6-month-old son began standing and holding on to her leg. She soon learned the dangers, when one of the glass jars fell and landed on his toe, breaking it. She was so upset, that when she got home with him from the hospital, she searched for baby food organizers and found nothing available. The need for a safe baby food organizer led to the creation of PRK Products, Inc. and the Universal Baby Food Jar Storage & Organizer.

There’s a reason they don’t say “necessity is the father of invention.” Many mothers have started in the children’s business by solving a real-life problem. Sharon Oved is a good example of a mompreneurial success story. After getting pregnant with her first child, Sharon found out her own mother had breast cancer and vowed to breastfeed for a year. It wasn’t easy, though. Trying to gracefully exit a room to nurse privately meant Sharon was missing special occasions. (At that time, breastfeeding coverups had not become a saturated product category.) One desperate night she took an old sheet and used it as a cover-up, allowing her to nurse “privately in public.”
