Tush Baby will present their product on the next episode of Shark Tank. This product may come as a lifesaver for some moms, as clingy toddlers can cause tremendous back pain as they want to be carried around all the time.
Tammy Rant, a mom from Walnut Creek, California, is the creator behind Tush Baby. She has two daughters and she realized that the Tush Baby solved many of her problems. Even though the design was meant to be just for her, she knew that other moms could use it as well.
To launch the product, Tammy had a Kickstarter campaign and raised $10,000 in just 30 hours. At the end of the Kickstarter campaign, she had raised $124,212 with a total of 1,379 backers.
The Tush Baby is exactly what you see above in the Instagram embed. It’s a strapless seat that hangs around your waist, creating a seat for your toddler. The seat doubles as a storage pocket, meaning you can bring bottles, your phone or sunglasses with you.
The best thing about the Tush Baby is that it is doctor approved. Carrying a toddler around on your hips is bad and can cause you to strain your back. With the Tush Baby seat, you can keep your back straight.
You can also use the seat for breastfeeding your baby, carry your child face-to-face or on the side from 4 months to the age of 36 months. Front facing placement can happen from 6 months and up. The seat holds approximately 30 pounds, which is the size of an average 3-year-old.
You can grab your very own Tush Baby from the company’s website or from Amazon. They are currently retailing for $79.99 and comes in both black and grey.
Shark Tank airs Sundays at 9/8c on ABC.
