The Twosie is the unique, patented, detachable two-part baby vest that makes baby changing more convenient and less stressful. The Twosie is designed with sustainability in mind and is made from 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton and all of the packaging is compostable. The Twosie tracks these key trends – growing demand for convenient and time saving products – ‘premiumisation’ = higher price – increasing importance of sustainability and inclusivity / ethical credentials.
Baby changing can be awkward and stressful based on when, where and how often you’re doing it and your physical condition or that of the baby. So often, just the bottom part of the vest is wet, meaning you have to remove all their clothes. The Twosie removes this hassle and makes it so much more convenient.
Detach the wet bottom part and replace it with a clean bottom part, so you don’t have to remove all the baby’s clothes – easy changing when out and about or travelling – night-time changes without waking them – remove a source of pain – additional benefits for special needs children and babies in hospital.
MARKET & COMPETITION
The baby clothing ($135 billion) and gift markets ($77 billion) continue to grow. There is an opportunity in the market for the Twosie because of the unique functional benefits it brings.
Baby vests are sold by FMCG retailers where price is key. Some sell adaptable clothing aimed at the special needs market, but the Twosie is the only detachable 2-part baby The Twosie and the only one with the benefits outlined above. The Twosie is a complimentary or supplementary product which parents will use in addition to ‘run of the mill’ baby vests. The Twosie is mum-made and born out of experience, something other brands cannot match.

The idea came at a time when I was suffering and in pain. I was 39 when I had my daughter Anna. I had a difficult pregnancy. I suffer from endometriosis and had always been told I’d never be able to have a child, but being an older mother brought can be harder physically. From when I was 3 months pregnant with her, I suffered with sciatica down both of my sides. This meant no sleep and took its toll on me after Anna was born – I was left with chronic back and shoulder pain for 2 years.
I came up with the idea when Anna had a tummy bug. That day, I had to change her nappy 4 times in the space of an hour. This meant I had to remove all of her clothes each time, just to change her vest, when only the bottom part was wet. This was stressful on Anna too because she was sick and lethargic. That led me to search online for a solution. When I didn’t find one, that was my lightbulb moment – a two-part baby vest that could help all parents.
REASON FOR SALE
