If you are looking for instant, easy-to-implement solutions to common parenthood problems, you're in the right place! From baby to big kid, I've got you covered.
Most of my products are "printable," which means your purchase is for a digital file. You download, print, and use that artwork as needed to handle those daily challenges at every stage of your baby's or child's development.
What you need to succeed... To make most of my products, you just need a printer (or access to one), scissors, and a hint of DIY spirit. Some products, such as the Dry Erase products, require lamination or framing in order to reuse your print. All digital downloads include instructions with your purchase. And if you're completely dumbfounded, please email me!
Nice to meet you! I'm Jen, founder of Committed, and fellow intrepid mom.
I have two little girls, and I laugh in the face of parenting challenges. Okay, that sounds pretty cavalier. Most of the time, I cry, drink coffee, or wine, go for walks, sweat it out. But the honest truth is, I like to solve problems, and I like to make jokes. So why not solve these problems with a smile? I make funny and useful products to help other mamas overcome parenting challenges. I have degrees in graphic design and mechanical engineering and and have a weirdo sense of humor.
"It's your turn to get the baby."
My flagship product, the Dry Erase Newborn Feeding Tracker, came about with the birth of my first daughter. She was staying in a Moses basket on the floor of our tiny bedroom. My husband was dutifully keeping track of every diaper change, feeding, nap, and fart on his trusty spreadsheets. But for me, all I wanted to know was: DIDN'T I JUST FEED YOU TEN MINUTES AGO?!? I couldn't read his handwriting in our dimly-lit room. Sometimes, I couldn't even find the damn spreadsheet. I was not only frustrated by the spreadsheets, but the sleep deprivation made it really difficult for me to convey my needs to my husband.
I had an a-ha moment after a particularly rough night: just write the last feeding start time REALLY BIG on a dry erase board! Mark what side I last started on, so I know where to start this time. Keep it next to the bed. Make this easier. So I started with just the time tracking. What was missing was my feelings. It's easy to put those aside with a newborn. But I really needed to hear I was still pretty. Reassurance that I was being a good mom. Because in all honesty, I felt like a sweaty, floppy, leaking cow. Yet, remarkably blissed-out whenever I looked in her eyes. Motherhood is weird, you guys. Regardless, I developed the Dry Erase Newborn Feeding Tracker just for MOMS. I wished I'd had it from Day 1. But as soon as I started using it, my life got easier. Pinkie swear.
The Second Child.
With my second daughter, we were in for it. We had every sleep issue known to moms. And that tracker REALLY came in handy. After having a C-section, I had several medications to track, so that ended up occupying the blank space at the bottom. I still wanted a latte every so often, or a bath, or a shoulder rub, but the board took on a more practical use for me. It was almost a year before I didn't need to keep an eye on middle-of-the-night disruptions. We used our tracker over a period of almost 4 years between both girls.
Sleep and feeding issues aside, with growing children come new challenges. As we face these challenges, I test solutions with my family, with my friends, and eventually, share them with my customers. My solutions look simple and easy to replicate, but know that they're researched, carefully designed, tested, and refined to get to where they are. I want you to succeed, mama!
My goal is to make you laugh when you least feel like it, and to overcome those challenges. That's why I like to say I help you WIN at parenting!
