HOW THE TWIN Z PILLOW WAS BORN
If you are like me I was thrilled and so excited when I found out I was having twins! I felt so lucky. So I prepared and prepared for the arrivals of our new little girls. They came before we knew it and I was amazed at how unprepared I was. I actually sent my husband out for more and more diapers and wipes and onesies. I also began to realize just how hard it was to feed two babies at once. I had a twin breastfeeding pillow but it was not conforming to my body or the babies bodies. I set it aside and tried my best to get bed pillows propped up. I just couldn't get my new little angels positioned properly to breastfeed. I also had the worst neck and back pain from leaning over. In addition, I also pumped so my husband could help with bottle feeding. But, when he was trying to bottle feed them he had to hold both bottles straight out from his body while they sat up in the bouncy chairs. This was the only way we could make it work. They were pretty tiny and liked to be upright rather than more flat on a Boppy.
So I said to myself there HAS TO BE SOMETHING BETTER FOR TWINS! So I searched and searched the internet and found nothing. So I thought I would make a pillow that had all the features I wanted. I wanted a pillow that I could breastfeed comfortably and happily in. I wanted to enjoy this time with my babies, not be in pain and dread it. And I wanted a pillow that was one piece that they could bond together in. They really hadn't got to cuddle with each other much since they were born. And I wanted to NOT have to have 2 of something for the first time! Although I do still have several Twin Z's in the house. :) But I was tired of paying money for 2 of everything. And lastly I wanted a pillow that had substance to it. I wanted it not to flatten out, since my girls loved to be propped up and look all around. I really think it helped in their digestion as well. Anyways..... So was born the Twin Z Pillow.
Starting a business....
I hadn't set out to start a business I just wanted to survive having twins. But after the Twin Z came to life, my life was so much easier! So much so that my girls at 4 years old STILL use the Twin Z for snacks and movies. There is not one baby item I bought that has lasted as long as this pillow for use. So a friend said you have to sell these and patent this invention. I thought she was crazy, I didn't know the first thing about starting a business. But if I was going to do it I was not going to sacrifice quality for profit. One thing I didn't realize would be hard to do, but I can say without a doubt this product is made of the BEST AND SAFEST MATERIALS IN THE USA. Something I am so proud of. So I deceided to give it a try and the popularity has just taken off!
I am so grateful to all my customers and am so glad that this product has helped so many other moms of multiples! I couldn't have survived the first twins years without it and I know you all have told me the same. The absolute best part of my job is hearing the success stories from all our customers! Thank You!!!! Keep them coming!
