About: Former writer for TV and print, now turned mom of two girls, 2 and 3, Jessica lives seaside in Santa Monica, CA. With babies, less is more (which is hard to admit because she is a self-proclaimed complete shopaholic and loves buying for her kids). That said, she's learned that everything has about a 3 month shelf life and usually ends up on Craigslist or in your garage. She and her daughters started Bear Bottle (like the modern day lemonade stand). It sells the straw cups that both her daughters used starting at 4 months old and they still use them to this day!
