Lalabye Baby is a small mom-owned business operated by Melissa and her family but what you may not know is how the Lalabye concept was born.
When Melissa decided she wanted to create her own cloth diaper brand, she knew first that she wanted to assign lullaby/nursery rhyme names to each diaper. It was a clever way to group a rainbow of colors together into a collection, and with numerous lullabies and nursery rhymes available to her, she knew she could dream up any color she wanted and find a suitable name to fit.
She also knew she wanted her logo to sport a moon, stars, and a baby sleeping contentedly (the old logo that has since been simplified and renewed this past summer). With those two concepts in mind, she struggled to find a name. Her daughter, Leah, who was 18 months at the time, called herself “Lala”.
After a friend suggested she pay homage to her child in the name by using Leah’s nickname, “Lalabye” was born.
After using cloth diapers with Leah, Melissa knew she could implement a better design. Unfortunately, Leah potty trained before the diapers were ready for testing, so her son Tai became her first official tester.
Over the years, Melissa has changed her design a few times to improve features of the diaper based on customer feedback; she’s always listening to her customers wants and needs and does her best to accommodate them and keep them surprised and excited about her products. Her goal is always to create long lasting, beautiful cloth diapers that are affordable without compromising quality, which her customers feel no hesitation in gushing about to their friends.
