What is weeSpring?
weeSpring is a platform that helps you share advice with your friends about baby essentials, like bottles, strollers, and diapers. You can compare products within a single category, like high chairs, or browse a trusted friend's favorites.
Expecting parents use weeSpring to ask their friends about the things they couldn't live without, and find out what they wish they'd never bought. New parents use weeSpring to pass along their own tried-and-true advice, while continuing to learn from their friends.
The first time I walked into a Babies R Us, I burst into tears. I looked up at a ten-foot wall of baby bottles and saw - in all of those options - a metaphor for how completely unprepared I was for the hundreds (thousands!) of choices I'd have to make for my baby
So when I got home, I started sending emails: what kind of car seat do you have? What diapers do you use? Do I need to be able to collapse an umbrella stroller with one hand? Should I get a high chair with a tray?
And over the weeks, as my inbox flooded with advice from my in-the-trenches friends, I started to feel a little less overwhelmed... and a little bit more ready. By the time my baby arrived, I'd become one of the ones sending the instructive emails (Get Triple Paste in the tub, not the tube! Bounce a fussy baby on a yoga ball!).
We founded weeSpring because we wanted new and expecting parents to have a simple, accessible resource where they can find out what helped them survive the early months, and then pass on their own tried-and-true advice.
We also realize that while there's no shortage of people telling you what you should buy, it's your friends who will tell you what you shouldn't. Being a new parent is expensive enough, without buying things you don't need or that don't work.
We hope you'll love using weeSpring as much as we've loved creating it - and we welcome your feedback and suggestions. Drop me a line anytime!
