During that 5 week trip, my world came crashing down around me... my mum was diagnosed with Cancer and had been given just one year to live. I made the tough decision to relocate. This decision saw me fly from the UK to Australia four times in one year so that Aimee’s daddy could still see his baby girl occasionally. The flying experience never got any better.
In an attempt to help Aimee sleep better during flights, I carted around single sheets and masking tape and set up a canopy over the bassinet to help block out all the inflight action. She would drag it off or the masking tape would fail and it would fall on her and of course wake her… nothing was effective in helping to remove all the crazy distractions on a flight.
Once my mum passed away, I couldn’t get the whole thing out of my mind and with encouragement from my husband, I decided to bring something to the market that help parents worldwide travel with their babies more effectively.
Mum meeting Aimee for the first time - I remember being so frustrated with that blanket hanging off the pram or getting thrown off!
