You know how you sometimes see a product that you instantly realize will make life easier and it hits you, ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’
It’s usually another mom who comes up with the creation, typically out of necessity more than anything else.
But those moms don’t stop with an idea. They actually create something that could serve as a solution.
Huggies has a special honor for those moms. They’re ‘Huggies Inspired Moms’ and Huggies even awards them grants to help push those products along.
Huggies recently named the winners for the 2012 Huggies Inspired grants and they all met in Louisville at the All Baby and Child Expo, where retailers around the country were able to check out the creations.
The winners are all listed below (links to the story behind each product can be found here). Meantime, if you have an item like this that you think other parents need, you might want to check out the Huggies Inspired grant yourself!
