As humans, one of the things we constantly need is validation! Once we transition into Motherhood, this need for validation seems to increase ten fold! Am I doing the right thing for my baby? Am I feeding him enough? Do we need to change that diaper... again? Should I go back to work? Should I stay home?
When we founded Pariday and created the TendHer Pillows, we had no idea if it was a good idea, or if people would even like them. We just knew that our breastfeeding pain was excruciating enough that we needed something better than the frozen peas which were oh, so so so uncomfortable and inconvenient! We developed the TendHer Pillows for ourselves and liked them. Surely this could be useful for other women experiencing difficulties with breastfeeding also?
Two years after the first TendHer Pillow prototype was born, and a year after they have been on the market, we have VALIDATION! Not only do we have satisfied customers and lactation consultants who love our product, we are also a finalist in the Most Awesome Baby Essentials category in the 2013 Red Tricycle’s Totally Awesome Awards!
Ok, so we may not have won... yet. Or maybe we won't... this year. Regardless, everything has to happen in baby steps. And this is one step we are very happy to take! Thanks everyone for your validation, and for believing in us.
