The Mompreneur: Catherine Uy Dy (mom to Chloe, 2 years old)
Why She Loves Being A Mom: The unending I-Love-Yous and the spontaneous kisses and hugs I get from our little girl
Her Business: Chubby Cheeks Baby
The Idea: My husband and I are actually partners in this venture. We saw the demand for more affordable products for moms and babies. It’s unfortunate that moms have to spend a lot just so they can give their babies the best. The name is inspired by our very own chubby-cheeked baby girl.
Why It’s Unique: I think we’re the only site that offers a wide range of readily available products for babies. We have our own brand of clothes and baby diaper bags. We also have feeding accessories, toiletries, toys, and books. Our Bebe Chic Diaper Bags come in fun and stylish designs which moms and dads would be proud to carry along. The bags are very organized, with numerous pockets to hold both parents’ and baby’s things while on the go. Milk Wear baby clothes are made of ultra-soft cotton that’s gentle on baby’s skin and are stretchable to accommodate baby’s fast growth during their initial years.
Advice for Aspiring Mompreneurs: It may seem overwhelming to become a mompreneur at first, but the key is to take things one step at a time. After you take that scary first step, the next steps will be easier.
