Peruvian Mompreneur Is Profiled in Latina Magazine Only Four Months After US Launch
The April issue of Latina Magazine highlights Bittylab's Peruvian CEO, Priska Diaz featured in an article about Latin women who built money making companies from home.
Bare® works like a syringe to feed baby air-free milk at all times. “As my baby kept getting gassier every time I bottle-fed him, I knew that I needed a baby bottle that didn’t allow air inside. I tried all the leading baby bottle brands but they all made my baby very gassy. Then I thought syringes! that’s the solution!” said Diaz and took that as a motivation to create what is now the only air-free baby bottle in the market. She set to work with a Dremel tool on her kitchen table, creating a prototype bottle made from existing packages and baby bottle components. Once she had a prototype that worked to her satisfaction, she worked with industrial designers, medical device engineers and plastic resin engineers to develop a fully engineered, production ready product. Together with the manufacturer selected, Diaz tested an endless number of part designs and custom resin formulations to optimize the design. After two years of intense effort, Diaz perfected the design and placed her first order for 10,000 units.
Bare® features a patent-pending Perfe-latch®
The synergistic effect of Bare’s innovative nipple and air-plug technologies allow baby to control the milk flow with sucking strength. Bare allows mom to expel all the air inside the bottle and minimizes backwash to reduce bacteria-growth and preserve nutrients, keeping milk fresh longer and healthier.
Because Bare® works with suction as opposed to gravity (like all other bottles), Bare® is the only baby bottle that can feed in any position including upright. Pediatricians recommend upright feeding to:
Help prevent gas, colic, fuss & spit-ups
Calm acid reflux/GERD symptoms
Help prevent ear infections
Encourage proper feeding posture
Stimulate bottle weaning
Improve transition to cups
In an independent trial, we found that babies diagnosed with symptoms of Acid Reflux and GERDS showed up to 95% improvement after feeding with Bare® for a couple of days. Some babies were even taken off the GERDS medication prescribed by their doctors. See some of the testimonials here http://bittylab.com/
In the same trial, Babies who were never able to breastfeed (due to numerous issues such as mom’s low milk supply, poor latching, nipple confusion, etc.) learned, by using Bare, to latch on the breast and were able to reinstate breastfeeding even after 3-4 months.
