When it comes to caring for a newborn baby, it’s likely that many parents find themselves wishing they had a few extra arms. From feeding schedules to diaper changes to sleeping times, keeping track of your little peanut’s growth and progress can get overwhelming.
After their first baby, a couple from California realized that there had to be a way to make the whole newborn thing easier on parents. After raising $7 million and having a successful bout on ABC’s Shark Tank, parents Ann and David Weiss (now CEOs of their company, Hatch Baby) launched a product relatively new to the industry: Grow, a smart, app-enabled changing pad.
Grow is the second generation of the smart changing pad from Hatch Baby and a modern nursery innovation that has reinvented the way parents can watch their baby, well, grow. It looks like the average diaper changing pad, but is much more than that: with a built-in wireless scale and app, Grow allows parents to easily track health metrics to provide peace of mind about the baby’s weight and easy-to-report information for pediatrician visits.
The Hatch Baby app tracks things that parents find important: weight gain (before and after nursing sessions), diaper changes, pumping amounts, sleep, and more. Grow’s scale automatically syncs with the app and records weight changes down to the ounce, so parents can make sure that their baby is growing at a healthy, steady pace. Grow attempts to ensure that bringing home a bundle of joy will be just that: enjoyable.
