There’s nothing like giving your little one their first bath. You break out the camera maybe even the video camera and can’t wait to take pictures to share with the whole family. But you soon realize that bath time isn’t fun at all for your little one, they are cold, exposed, shivering and well, just not very happy. The poor bambino!
So what should you do? You should cover up your babe with a Bath Luve! This adorable 100% soft cotton terry cloth cover comes in fun, bright colors and shapes such as a fish, a duck or a frog. You simply get it wet with warm water, and lay it over your little one’s belly. Once all warm and covered, your little one will feel as if they are back in the womb. He’s sure to love bathtime more and you will finally get those winning bath shots that are sure to be frame worthy! (plus, the Bath Luve is a great cover for even the very modest of babies).
Today we’re talking story to the woman who is keeping our babies warm and snugly during bathtime…
Name: Amy Seckinger
Business: Bath Luve http://bathluve.com/
Why did you start your business?
After struggling with bath time with my children, I wanted to develop a product to help other moms. Through design/testing and feedback came up with the Bath Luve in three different characters, frog, duck and fish. I love getting thank yous from parents who tell me their bath time is now a more enjoyable part of the day for them and their little ones. The babies are kept warm and cozy when covered in the Bath Luve and the bathing experience is the bonding time it should be.
What is your favorite part of owning your own business?
It gives me the flexibility and freedom to be creative while also being with my children.
What inspires you?
It inspires me to get e-mails or letters from parents telling how the Bath Luve has helped their family. It makes it all worth it!
Who is your biggest cheerleader?
My husband, Eddie. He’s an entrepreneur too, and we encourage each other and support each other 100 percent. He’s a great sounding board and is always ready with advice and help through the ups and downs of launching a new product and creating a brand.
What would be your #1 piece of advice that you would give to any mom just starting out or wanting to start a business?
They need to know right off the bat that it’s hard work, and you’ll have to invest money and time in your ideas. Protect yourself by filing for any patents and consulting with a business attorney. If it was easy, everyone would do it. However, if you can make it happen, it’s so rewarding, especially when your product can make a difference in the lives of others. Believe in yourself and work hard!
How do you keep your kids occupied when you are working?
When they were younger, I didn’t have the time to spend to launch a product although I did spend time creating and experimenting with the idea. Now that they’re school aged, I can work on my business while they’re in class and spend the evenings carpooling like so many other moms!
What do you never leave the house without?
My Blackberry so I can keep in touch at home and with work for e-mails, phone calls and scheduling.
Do you have a favorite quote?
I have several but one I keep in mind is “Without having a goal, it’s difficult to score!”
