Mompreneur and Founder of MoonMaker™, Brandy Herron, develops an innovative solution to diaper rash. There are 12 million children under the age of two in the USA, and it is reported that one third of them experience diaper rash. MoonMaker™ is a cloth diaper system designed with an open back and disposable absorbent front inserts. The unique design allows children to move freely while parents can be confident that their floors and furniture will stay dry while they are treating or preventing diaper rash.
While barrier creams provide skin protection for children in diapers by protecting the affected area from exposure to wetness, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends exposing the affected area to air to heal the diaper rash. What is the #1 problem with this recommendation? “Potty accidents!” says Herron.
Brandy Herron is no stranger to diaper rash. With three children who all experienced diaper dermatitis, she was determined to develop a solution. She is a firm believer in the power of air dry, and has seen the success of this treatment with her children. “Fresh air is highly effective, but it is difficult to prevent potty accidents by keeping your child on a blanket or in a playpen when they want to practice their crawling, climbing, and toddling skills. It is definitely not fun for the person trying to wrangle a determined child,” says Herron.
Unfortunately, Herron’s son experienced recurring diaper rash due to antibiotics used to treat numerous ear infections. “I felt so bad for my little guy. His ears hurt and his bottom hurt. Letting him run around airing out became commonplace. For a stretch he had a rash more often than not,” she says. The family joked that the experience was like having a puppy; lots of potty accidents.
Herron became frustrated with this problem and MoonMaker™ was born. “I wanted to find a backless diaper to keep my floor clean while he was healing. A backless diaper may seem counterintuitive, but it was exactly what we needed.”
“MoonMaker™ is a wonderful product that babies and caregivers will love. Babies’ little bottoms are very sensitive and can develop diaper dermatitis even without a cause,” says Katherine S. Teruel, MD, a Colorado pediatrician. “The power of air dry trumps any diaper cream, and the MoonMaker™ is the perfect solution.”
Development of this product became a family affair. “The product was inspired by my son. The next step was to create a fun name to capture its essence,” says Herron. It was Herron’s then four-year old daughter who named the patent-pending invention. “One night during dinner we were brainstorming a name. My daughter suggested MoonMaker™ and we knew it was a winner. It is an accurate description,” she says.
MoonMaker™ is sure to make the list of must have baby gear. It is made in the USA, and is available in two sizes and six fun patterns. The adjustable waistband allows parents to customize the fit for children of all sizes aged nine to 24 months. To learn more, visit MoonMaker.com.
