I Get Your Car Seat Struggle
I am a mom of three who's too tired to wrestle my kids winter coats off in the car seat One. More. Time.
But here's the thing....
I don’t like ponchos
I don’t want to drag blankets through slush
I don’t want my kids to be cold.
One day, feeling overwhelmed by the No Coat Rule, I thought if the zipper wasn’t in the middle… and I realized I had a super simple - easy idea!!
I applied for a patent and did the next obvious thing - I spoke with every coat manufacturer imaginable. I thought they would jump on the idea but they didn’t believe that coats and car seats had anything to do with one another. They weren’t in the trenches though – I was – and I knew other parents were too.
I'd see kids wrapped in a blankets dragging through slush (ew) with defeated tired parents and I knew I had to get this solution out there!
One day I posted to Facebook and my post went viral - people loved them. Today I've grown in a few short years from shipping out of my kitchen to shipping all over the world from a local Massachusetts warehouse.
My 3 kids, 2 cats, dog and I live in New Hampshire where winter is long and cold and people are super friendly.
Outside of Buckle Me Baby Coats I'm also a mental health counselor – running a mental health private practice with a dear friend where I treat adults with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
When I'm not working on coats or bugging my kids - I'm enjoying escape rooms, Netflix binge watching, theater, long books, and scrabble.
