Meet Jennifer of Palm Palms

Tell us a little about you?
My name is Jennifer Backstein and I am the creator of a new baby bath product that my company has recently brought to market. I am a primary school teacher and also
an interior decorator however, after I had my daughter I became the creator of a brand new baby product that I think you might be interested in.

What is your business and where can I find it?
The product is called Palm-Palms (TM) baby bath grips and was inspired from the anxiety I felt toward giving my newborn her first bath. I knew that a wet baby
could be slippery and tough to handle so I created Palm-Palms baby bath grips to help assist me in the bathing process. Palm-Palms are designed to be worn on the hands of a caregiver during baby bath time or shower time. Our research has made it very clear that anxiety over bathing babies and young children is very common
amongst both new and experienced parents. The primary function of the product is to provide an amazingly secure grip on the slippery skin of a baby or toddler.
It's just like the secure feeling of holding a baby wrapped in a towel! The soft terry cloth grips also double as washcloths even while remaining on the
caregivers hands. Fingers and thumbs are left exposed to allow direct contact with baby's skin as well as accurate testing of water temperature and easy
handling of bath accessories such as shampoo and baby wash. The grips are one size fits all and conform snugly on any hand due to the incorporated stretch
fabric. They come in three colours: pink, blue and white.
Palm-Palms baby bath grips can be purchased from our on-line website at www.palm-palms.com. When visiting our website you can learn a lot more about our product and where we have been featured. As well, Palm-Palms baby bath grips are being sold in a number of well known baby stores in and around the Toronto area.

Is it mom-owned, invented, created.....?
Yes! Palm-Palms baby bath grips was invented by me during my maternity leave. My husband and I were always bathing our newborn baby together for fear that we would drop her if we were to do it alone. We began to research products that were currently on the market to help assist us and all that we could find were products that you placed the baby into but nothing that provided a no-slip grip while holding and bathing. We started to brainstorm ideas of what we thought would be the best solution to this problem and that is how Palm-Palms baby bath grips were created.

A little about your entrepreneur journey so far?
Our journey so far has been very interesting. At first it was a little discouraging since I was not familiar in any way with this industry. It took a lot of time and effort to get retailers to speak with me and help bring my product into their stores. I received a lot of positive feedback about Palm-Palms which helped me continue pursuing my product. I had an overwhelming response to the product from prenatal and postnatal audiences I have a greater than 90% purchase rate with only a short five minute talk and demonstration and it became apparent that new and experienced parents were excited to have a product that makes baby bath time less intimidating and stressful.

Where else can people find you?
When people visit our on-line website they will see on our homepage many buttons from different websites and bloggers that have previously reviewed our product. If they click on those buttons they will be able to read the entire review to gain more insight about our product. As well we recently won a contest from PTPA (parent tested parent approved) media. As a reward for winning this contest we received national exposure on Fox News. Viewers can watch this by clicking on the link off of our homepage.

Too many almost accidents make this a must have. Those little ones sure do get slippery.

I desperately need these gloves. My grand baby is soooo slippery. I'm constantly grabbing her and holding onto her because she is a wiggly thing.

I have had a few near misses with a slippery baby over the years. These would be wonderful shower gift for my sister who is having her first. Near misses w/ a wet baby are so frightening.

I need these when bathing my son. He's a 6-month old dare-devil. He jerks and squirms when he is being bathed. Pulling him out of his tub is tricky becuase he likes to throw himself back. Thanks for the chance.

Bathing my two 7 week old boys is traumatic for them and they squirm so much. The palm palms would help keep the slippery babies in my hands.

My daughter is very busy in the bath tub. the other day she slipped and fell back in the water. I grabbed her as fast as I could but it was very slipper and wet and I know it definately would have helped if I would have had bath grips. amsbolda@hotmail.com

This is a great product and what a smart idea! My son is ready to transfer from the "counter-sink" tub to our tub and I am stressing about bending over and not having a good grip on him already...so this is perfect! I hope to win!

Fear of dropping a slippery baby kept me from bathing my son until he was old enough to sit independently in the big tub and is preventing my participation in the bathing of our newborn daughter. These would make me feel more comfortable and then I can share in the bathing experience!

What a great product! As a first time mom, worrying over ever little thing, getting a slippery baby out of a bathtub is always nerve-wracking! These would be wonderful. Thanks for the opportunity :)

Cristina said...

My son is 5 months old and just LOVES his baths! But he is such a wiggle worm...he kicks and squirms the whole time...soaking everything in sight! These would be the perfect thing to give me some peace about bathtime.

Cristina said...

Katrina said...

I need this because I have a very wiggly 6 month old that is very slippery.

Jenndiggy said...

These would really help me feel safer at bath time!

great gift for my little niece

What a great idea! I had a VERY scary experience with my little one one time, this would have been nice. Thanks for the chance.

April said...

These are ingenious! I have the hardest time wrangling my 9 month old out of his baby tub, which we place inside our regular tub, when he's wet and trying to kick and play! I usually enlist my husband to help, but even then it's hard to get him out. These palm-palms would be fantastic!

I've been too easy to keep a slippery child

katscorner said...

Because it puts the fun back into bath time for when the baby is slippery with soap, I think they would be fantastic for any Mom to have

sfyates said...

A great idea for the bath I think.

ahappyhippy mom said...

This is such an awesome idea! I can not count how many times I have felt uneasy taking my son out of his bath with wet slippery hands! This is a great product to help prevent accidents!
