The Habipad is the trendy new way to change a diaper on the go! It is a quilted changing pad cover designed to fit your diaper bag’s vinyl pad.

Tell us about your business.

The Habipad was created in 2008 to fulfill my need of a safe, comfortable and sanitary way to change my baby on the go. I couldn't bear to let my baby's bottom rest upon a cold, uncomfortable thin vinyl pad surface. So to fix this issue I created The Habipad cover for personal use. Via word of mouth, my Habipad became very popular in my local community and I began making them for new moms as gifts. I then hired a lawyer and obtained a patent on The Habipad since this was an entirely new baby product created. In 2012 I became a manufacturer for Southern Fried Chicks, Inc. and along with The Habipad began manufacturing Bibs and Burp cloths as well. My products are currently being sold in four boutiques in Texas as well as online. I see my product line expanding and my business evolving into a million dollar business by selling my baby products world-wide as well as licensing agreements for The Habipad.

What makes your business stand out?

I manufacture a brand new patented baby product that no one else can provide.

What's the best business advice you've received?

Never give up.
