MEDIA: BabyHub Thu 05-May-16 09:44:45

I used to post on Mumsnet as Stumpydog and possibly some other names(can't remember them!). I've been working for the last few years on developing baby products and we now have a company and international distribution set up. We've won awards for finalist in the British Inventors' project, BPA Concept and Innovation. We'll have the first product on sale in August. It's the only travel cot that is designed to take covers, even for babies who can pull themselves up to stand, and comes with a mosquito net cover. Please have a look at our pitch on Richard Branson's Voom, which we've just launched. To get through to the next stage would be great publicity for us, so please foillow the link/search for BabyHub on and give us a vote!

Remembered now - I used to post and seek advice about my baby son's pyeloplasty. That was at St Thomas' when he was just a few months old. It was a complete success and he's now a fit and healthy nine year old.

We'll also be looking for product testers and bloggers.
