I'll admit it. I'm somewhat of germaphobe. So imagine my reaction when I was helping out in the church nursery one day and constantly saw children picking up and drinking from someone else's sippy cup. Ewwww! Most of the cups were labeled with the child's name, but there was a problem -- kids can't read! With three children of my own, I set out to stop the germ swap! I wanted a sippy cup label that was mom AND kid friendly. Kids can't read until they're almost finished with sippy cups, but they can recognize themselves in a photo between 12 and 15 months -- about the same time they start using a sippy cup. Perfect. I designed a label that had the child's photo and name on it: a patented silicone band with a plastic insert that allows the parent to customize the band. Voila! With my husband's help and business knowledge, Baby Face Band was born.
Our easy to use website makes it simple to size, crop, print, and add your child's name to the band. Simply upload a picture from your home computer to our website to get started (Picture-Sizer). You can print at home or save the file and take it to your local drug or discount store to print.
I hope you have as much fun using your Baby Face Band as we have had making them a reality. Now go stop the germ swap!
