Project Description

Soothe and calm your baby with vibration, whenever and wherever.

 

At home, at the store, or out to eat, simply put the glove on, start the vibration, and put on the washable mitten cover. This patent pending glove will let you hold on to calm.

 

Every baby can be Zen

Sometimes you know why your baby is crying. They are hungry, tired, or have a wet diaper. Other times nothing can calm them, leaving you sleepless and stressed.

Help is here! I am a family nurse practitioner and new mom.  I have found a solution that helps my baby, my husband, and me, and I want to share it with you.

 

Common problems parents and caregivers face

1. Baby wants to be held and swayed, not put down

2. Transitioning baby from your arms to a vibrating surface startles or wakes them

3. You want a flexible product that you can easily control – without an outlet or hard plastic box!

Zen Mittenz (TM) solve these problems and more

1. Use it at home, on the go, in your arms, or once the baby is set down 

2. Comfortable to wear on your hand, while leaving your fingers free to hold baby securely

3. Attractive washable covers make for easy cleaning of inevitable baby messes

Market Size and Opportunity

My customers are people who are taking care of a newborn or young child and want to provide calm and soothing, promoting relief, sleep, and ultimately health for the whole family. In 2020 alone, 3.6 million babies were born in the US and 140 million worldwide. In 2017, the wholesale infant sleep industry in the US was worth more than $325 million a year, according to figures reported by companies to the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association.

All about it

As a family nurse practitioner, I understand the negative health impact that stress and lack of sleep can take. I am also a new mom and understand from the customer's point of view how painful it is to hear your baby crying and feel helpless. My name is Olivia, and I had a long road to get here.

After four years of trying to get pregnant, two surgeries, IVF, and two frozen embryo transfers, my dream came true. My beautiful daughter arrived!

After going through so much to get her, I felt such guilt at my frustration when I could not soothe her. I thought I should only be happy and grateful all the time! That night at 3 AM, as I was finding my way to Zen Mittenz, I gave myself permission to feel frustrated while loving her completely.

Moms, Dads, and every caregiver, just by being there for your baby, you have already got this! But if your baby is anything like mine, Zen Mittenz will make it a little easier to help your baby rest – so you can get some rest, too.

I am raising $12,400 to finish prototype development and manufacturing plans, certify for safety, and cover patent fees. You could be one of the first to own a Zen Mitten, or gift one to the exciting new addition to your circle!

Thank you for looking at my campaign. Any support you can provide, monetarily, sharing, liking, following, spreading the news, will be so appreciated. Let’s improve the health and rest of families everywhere – and help babies hold on to their calm!
