During the summer a few years back, we were getting ready to go somewhere. As you can imagine, with six kids, it takes us a minute to get everyone – and everything - together to get out the door.
We wanted to feed our youngest son, J.J., before we left so we didn’t have to do it on the go. We were already running late and, in typical fashion, feeding J.J. with a spoon was a messy and slow process.
J.J. was also teething at the time and we had just given him his medicine. The medicine dispenser happened to be sitting on the counter next to J.J.’s baby food. As time ticked by, and the mess was steadily increasing, my husband and I looked at the dispenser, and then each other, and decided to try feeding him with the dispenser instead of the spoon. Success! J.J. loved it, and was smiling from ear to ear. It was so much faster with much less mess!
As the experience was so great for us all, we searched to see if something like the medicine dispenser existed on the market for baby feeding. We wanted something that was cute too. We couldn’t find anything! It was then that we decided - if we wanted what we were looking for, we would have to create it ourselves!
We thought about different shapes that could fit on top of the dispenser, and also thought it would be helpful for it to be made out of a teething material to help soothe sore gums! We were initially thinking animal designs, but then my husband suggested a plane, which fit perfectly with creating feeding time fun – “here comes the plane!” – and Jet was born!
I thought of the name, Jet, because it is complementary to J.J. (aka “the clever baby”).
Jet is a first-of-its-kind teether and dispenser all-in-one! The dispenser can be used with medicine or baby food purees. There are tsp and mL markings on the dispenser for accurate medicine dosages and tracking feeding. The plane-shaped teether comes off the dispenser and it's easy for baby to hold. It's the perfect shape for baby to get relief to back teeth and can be chilled for added comfort.
Jet makes giving medicine easier and creates a fun experience! Jet makes feeding time a breeze and takes the guesswork out of how much food your baby is eating – without the mess! It’s a fast, fun, easy and clean way to feed your baby! Jet is great for traveling or on the go! Jet is the perfect 3-in-1 baby product to have with you at all times! Here comes the plane!
We're excited Jet is a hit and look forward to launching new clever products that make parents lives easier and bring magical moments to babies and kids!
