Bobee Inventor & Mompreneur of the Week - Stacy Harfert

You’ll change over 2,000 diapers in the first year! Save Time with Bobee Diaper & Wipe Dispenser
Diapers, wipes, pee, powder, poo, clothes, cream, pail and baby. The circus juggling act of changing a baby happens as often as 8 times a day for up to 10 minutes at a time. No Mom will argue that she easily spends over an hour a day changing and re-changing diapers.  Mastering this skill is a must for any Mom, new or seasoned. It takes tremendous time and patience to get the motions down and about the time you do, junior learns to roll over and the dance begins again!  One Mom of two from Colorado, found herself fed up with it after only a few weeks.

Stacy Harfert set out to find a solution. She was pretty handy with a tool belt and used her knowledge to experiment with all sorts of materials from plexi-glass to cardboard. Eventually, she ended up creating a wall-mounted unit to hold not just the diapers but the wipes too. It struck her as the best solution to less stress. It made it easy to find them, easy to access them and it freed up the changing table space for the rest of her supplies.  A friend noticed how much easier it made changing for her and how quickly she seemed to be able to do it and said she would love to have one too. The idea spread with her Mommy friends and before she knew it she had created a supply and demand problem without ever starting a business.

 Did you know you’ll change over 2,000 diapers in the first year! Amazing right. Now there is something that will help you save time and organize your changing table for all those diaper changes.  The Bobee Diaper & Wipe Dispenser is a wall mounted diaper stacker and wipe organizer.

Not only a fantastic time-saving, organizing invention, but also a mom-invented product.

What is so neat about this modern diaper stacker, is it comes white so you decorate it to match your nursery.  There are five colorful decals that come with it so you can mix and match to your nursery room colors.  If you’re planning your nursery for the first time or looking for the perfect baby shower gift, the Bobee Diaper & Wipe Dispenser is a great choice.
Stacy invented the Bobee diaper & wipe dispenser when her son was 18 months old and the second was due any day. She worked out the product details with two little ones in diapers and actually using the product! Award winning and patent pending, Bobee is going strong and the product line has just expanded to include additional color decal options to better color coordinate with baby’s trendy nursery.

Seal of Approval from the Family Review Center

We have received another award! A Seal of Approval from the Family Review Center!


The convenience factor alone makes this one a no brainer for the mom on the go! With the SeatPak you no longer have to carry a big cumbersome, heavy diaper bag everywhere you go, along with baby in the carseat or stroller. Now you have a bag you can quickly and easily attach to any stroller or carseat (or shopping cart) and you are off and running. At times you need a full size diaper bag and there is no getting around it, but other times you don't. The SeatPak holds a lot and also has several compartments to easily organize and separate everything so your downtown adventures are a breeze. The SeatPak was invented by a mom who was tired of always have a big bulky bag to carry and she has done all mothers a service by taking her idea to the marketplace. This is a true godsend and is available at a very affordable price point. They are available at stores as well as online at the Baby Bindle website. You can choose from black or brown. You may want to pick up a couple, so you can have one for baby's items and one for your own or for an older child, if out for a walk or adventure with the stroller. Hook one up to each side and you are set. You will love this one, you can count on it!" - Family Review Center

Featured Friday MomPreneur - Stella Rubinshteyn

Surround Your Baby in a Cloud of Comfort


Stella Rubinshteyn is a mom to 3 amazing boys, and the original inventor of the world’s most luxurious stroller seat liner!

Originally from Europe, Stella discovered that in comparison to the European countries, where it’s a common practice to place children inside a stroller lined with a cotton blanket or better yet a buggy liner, American parents place their children on bare stroller upholstery without any lining protection at all.  Typical stroller upholstery is not removable or machine washable, and may feel rough on baby’s delicate skin. Considering that children spend so much time in their strollers, it seems logical that they should get proper physical support and the seat should be comfortable, soft and clean: Let’s face it, we’d never consider sleeping on a bare mattress ourselves! 

The only stroller liner Stella could find for her son was a traditional white carriage liner with ruffles, something that just would not cut it for her boys. After realizing there was a gap in the market for stylish stroller liners in fun, modern designs and prints, that can coordinate well with any popular stroller brand, Tivoli Couture created its first line of comfortable Luxury Plush stroller liners that would also be reversible for versatility and year round comfort.  Soon after, while enjoying her brand new memory foam mattress topper and pillow at home, it occurred to Stella that memory foam would make the perfect padding for a deliciously comfortable stroller liner – prompting a second generation of Luxury NuComfort™ memory foam stroller liners to be born.
