Million $$$ Ideas: Frustrated mom creates zip-up Onesie
By Melissa Mahadeo, Reporter -
Erin Lang is a mom on a mission to solve a problem facing any parent who has to change diapers in the middle of the night.
She's the inventor of Zipaboo: a baby Onesie that zips instead of snaps.
"You have immediate access to the diaper," Lang said. "You pull the legs out, change the diaper, stuff them back in there and zip them back up."
The mom-turned-entrepreneur always wanted to be in business for herself, but it took finding the right product to make it work.
She said the design for the Zipaboo came out of her own frustration.
"My son had those pajamas that had snaps on them, and I was so frustrated because I kept snapping the wrong ones together," Lang said. "Then, if I used a zippered pajama, it would expose his chest, and he would wake up for another hour."
Now, her design is the talk of Hollywood. It was featured at a preshow party for the Golden Globes, and journalist and TV host Lisa Ling just had Zipaboo featured at her baby shower.
