it all started with the birth of our first son…
We went from busy jobs where we felt organised and on top of things, to feeling overwhelmed, overtired and out of control (sound familiar?)! We wanted to find a way to drag some order from the chaos…. and so the tiddler tracker was born!
We knew it was a product that we wanted to share with the world after seeing a benefit we hadn’t even considered; our son was struggling with feeding and initially the doctors dismissed it as colic, but he was eventually diagnosed with silent reflux. The doctor told us that it was his feeding and sleeping patterns clearly and succinctly recorded in the tiddler tracker that helped a swift diagnosis and saved him (and us!) from months of discomfort.
What about baby feeding apps I hear you say… Well we tried, but they didn’t feel as personal and we struggled to find a way to retain data for comparison purposes. In fact, we lost multiple weeks’ worth of data for our first son, despite requesting it from the apps developer (…good job we were also using the tiddler tracker!). Now we’re lucky enough to have a second son and have really enjoyed comparing both boy’s development, recorded in their tracking books.
We searched for other baby tracking books on the market, but couldn’t find anything that combined functional format and good design. So we came up with our own. Our friends and family all agreed they were great books, which is when we thought we should give it a go and get our products out to other parents who might benefit from them, and so we started tiddlers & nippers.
We hope the tracking books will be personal mementos for you, keepsakes of milestones and memories from those precious early days which can so easily fade from the memory.
