It seems like it has only been a few months since the Tykester team came together and decided to make an app to help Moms get through their busy day. Sounded like a simple plan – make a communication tool that gives you the basic info. We thought that Moms (and Dads) wanted to know the quick and easy facts. Sleep. Eat. Diaper changes. When you think about it, those items make up a child’s day, right? Well, we were partially right.
But we found out that there was more to the story.
When you pick up your baby from daycare, how do you know what happened that day?
Do you read between the lines of a day sheet? Yes, you can tell by a small checkmark that your child ate lunch and took a nap. Maybe there is activity noted (maybe not). Did that day sheet make you feel a part of your child’s day? Did you know before you got to the daycare that evening that you might be picking up a sleepy or hungry child?
That is where Tykester comes in and fills the information gap. Yep, you wanted the basics.
It is important to know that your baby slept two hours. And ate a snack.
But there is more to the story, isn’t there? Tykester also lets you see it happen in real time. It’s 3:35pm and your precious bundle just ate a cupcake. She also ate half a jar of that organic applesauce you brought from home, which is a really good thing because it means she won’t be hungry until dinner at 6:30pm. And she ate it with the blue bunny spoon that she loves so much. You don’t have to wonder what happened before you picked her up. You now know all of this because Tykester gave you the details, and your daycare provider even shared the photo that explains why there is now pink frosting on her shoe.
Moms notice things like that.
It’s the real story. And now it is a reality. www.tykester.com
And for Anna, Mary, Bee, Megan, Mini and Nancy who provided the love and insight on how deep the connection is between mother and child.
For Chuck, Bobby, Larry, Phil, Mo, John and all the Daddies out there who miss their babies (human, canine, feline or otherwise) when they aren't with them, no matter how old, independent or furry their babies may be.
