Mama Maker: Leah from LCeeeDesigns

Leah is a lawyer by day and a mom of three boys who embraces life’s chaos with the same resolve that her Midwestern home is known for. So much so, that a particularly messy plane ride with her first-born led to creating LCeeeDesigns and its first product, The Flipping Holder. It all started when Leah… Continue reading Mama Maker: Leah from LCeeeDesigns

Designing Better Baby Products

When moms and dads design baby products together, you get the best of both worlds: intuition to create better products for their own children, and determination to bring their innovation to families around the world.

Straws make learning to drink from a cup much easier. We figured this out early on while taking our toddler to restaurants. And with a lid, the combo is great for slowing down spills! A good friend sent me a Lollacup to try, since they’re made in the US and popular in her family. Turns out they’re perfectly… Continue reading Sippy Cups with Straws

Heavy Duty High Chair

When I initially came across Keekaroo’s made in the USA high chairs, I was biased towards the design. (They are very attractive, especially compared to the plastic jungle out there.)  I also knew that the impermeable seat cushion would be nice and easy to wipe down.  But it wasn’t until I had a toddler on… Continue reading Heavy Duty High Chair

Spooning 

Feeding solids to my 6-month-old was exciting for all of us: my son, his bottomless pit of an appetite, this ready-to-wean working mama and our dog who would reap the many rewards found on the floor.
