PALISADES PARK, N.J. -- A Palisades Park mom has turned her frustration at changing her daughters' diapers into a viable business.
Wiggletot was created four years ago when Zaida Khaze's second child was six months old, though she had been thinking about it for six years.
It all started when her first daughter was seven months old and was so wiggly that changing her diaper became an exercise in gymnastics. Khaze said she had to do the laundry almost every other day because of soiled clothing/accessories after her girls, both of who were curious movers, kept rolling over while having their diapers changed.
Her solution: a changing pad cover and detachable vest combo complete with attachable toys that keeps baby in one place and entertained, letting mom or dad whip through the changing process with ease.
Khaze, who held previous jobs in direct marketing selling existing product or services. officially began her business in April 2014.
She said it took a lot of trial and error. "My first prototype didn't have any toys and it secured my daughter but she was crying and frustrated because she couldn't turn over," she said. "That's when I knew I needed attachable toys."
And though diapers are now in her past -- her daughters are now six and four -- she said she has other baby products on her mind., all of which involve ways on how to save parents -- especially mom -- time, money, and most importantly, sanity.
"In the near future, I will also add different colors to the existing Wiggletot product," she said.
The item is sod at www.wiggletot.com, amazon.com and zulily.com.
