Our recent trip to the All Baby & Child Expo was such a blast!  Nothing was more rewarding than finding those gold-nugget product companies who really have the best intentions at heart - to provide a product that makes life better for parents and babies in a safe, natural, and non-toxic manner.

We are happy to have found the Baby Shusher product; sleep is so precious to so many parents, and if anything helps improve the quality and quantity of sleep for new parents and babies, we are all for it!  This product fits hand-in-hand with Dr. Harvey Karp's 5 S's for calming baby, and makes life that much easier for moms, dads, and babies struggling with lack of sleep due to fussiness, discomfort, or stress.   

We had the opportunity to interview the inventor of the Baby Shusher, to learn more about how the Baby Shusher product came to fruition.

1. What is your relationship to fertility, pregnancy, birth, and/or mommy/baby care, and how does your work relate to it? 

I am the proud father of three beautiful little girls (Anna, 5, Madison, 4, Lexi, 2). So my wife and I have been living directly in the crazy baby world for the past five years. It was out of our own personal experience with our babies that we invented the Baby Shusher and started our company. 

2. What inspired you to do the work you do? 

Desperation inspired us. We had a very fussy first baby. Anna was very hard to calm and was not a good sleeper. We were flat out exhausted. So we immediately went to all the tricks and tips and techniques that we'd read about or heard about. One specific technique outclassed them all. The ancient art of rhythmic shushing. The only problem was that my wife could not master the technique. She had neither the volume or lung capacity necessary to calm Anna. So I had to somehow replicate myself. Thus the Baby Shusher was born! 

3. What is the most important thing a pregnant woman or a woman trying to conceive should know about her body, giving birth, and caring for herself and her baby, based on your personal and professional experience? 

We absolutely believe that the first 3 months after a #baby is born should be treated as the fourth trimester. A baby is just not ready to fully embrace the scary real world. So anything a mom can do to help them feel safe and secure like they were for the 9 months inside mommy is a good thing. Shushing reminds a baby of being safe inside the womb, as it directly mimics the in utero noises of blood flow and body fluids.

4. What is your biggest obstacle in supporting pregnant or trying-to-conceive women and/or babies? 

Even though we've seen great success thus far, we can't get the word out about the Baby Shusher fast enough! We've had so many moms and dads say, "I wish I would have known about this much sooner!" 

5. Tell me your best success story. 

There are no better success stories than my own babies. The Baby Shusher saved the day with our first baby, Anna. It quickly became the most valuable tool in our baby calming arsenal. My wife would use it 12 times a day. Grandparents used it. Friends used it. When we had our 2nd baby fourteen months later, and the nurses in the hospital saw the amazing success we had with the Baby Shusher, they were mesmerized. We quickly became the talk of the maternity ward. This gave us the confidence to move forward with creating the real product.
