I’m Jess, and this is the story of Hashtag Baby.
On our fifth wedding anniversary, my husband and I learned that we were expecting twins. After the shock wore off – and believe me, we were both shocked – we began preparing for our daughters’ arrival.
And, like so many other moms-to-be, I quickly became overwhelmed. Yes, I had the added realization that we were going to need two of most things, but I was also amazed by the sheer amount of stuff that babies apparently needed.
When I started creating a baby registry, I realized how that as a mom of multiples, I had unique needs. As soon as I added “double stroller” to the search criteria, my options dwindled. I re-measured the nursery 17 times to make sure that both cribs would fit – even though we bought the ones with the smallest footprint. I also knew that my husband was going to play an important role in the process, too – he had no choice but to be hands-on! – and I was surprised how many baby products were obviously geared to moms.
I recognized that I probably wasn’t the only one poking around in all corners of the internet to find a “best of” listing with more than one multi-camera baby monitor listed. I wanted to help other moms (and dads!) – and that’s when Hashtag Baby was born.
