Reasons to Invest

Beebo impressed the Sharks on Shark Tank so much that they made a deal with Lori Greiner & Ashton Kutcher
50% of babies will experience diaper rash at some point this 1.4 Billion dollar cream market creates a huge market for Swabbies cream products
Better Families products are sold in Walmart, BuyBuyBaby and Amazon with international distribution plans for “The Beebo” underway

“Make every moment with your baby the best it can be”

Smarter Parenting Solutions


Better Family opens up a world of possibilities for parents with two patented products

The Beebo is a free-hand bottle holder that gives parents a free hand, all the while enhancing feeding time. This newfound flexibility makes way for parents to integrate storytime into these intimate moments, enjoy family meals, or simply an extra hand to massage and caress their baby.


Swabbies is an all-natural diaper cream — we know how important it is to know exactly what goes into your baby’s products, so we took the mystery out of diaper cream. Swabbies is totally organic and works instantly to provide soothing relief for your little one.


The Market


Millions of babies get diaper rash each year

The market for baby care products is worth almost $74B worldwide, with $1.4B being made up by the diaper rash cream segment. 


This market’s sustained growth has been characterized in recent years by a shift away from the global behemoths like Johnson & Johnson, toward smaller health-conscious brands with fewer chemicals.


Our Beebo product is especially appealing to stay-at-home Dads, who make up 24% of our Millennial target market.

Our Traction


Two patented products, from Shark Tank to Walmart

Our proprietary products have been met with massive enthusiasm in the marketplace. We’ve landed deals with huge retailers like Walmart and Buy Buy Baby, and even appeared on Shark Tank — where Sharks Lori Greiner and Ashton Kutcher made a deal with Martin Hill and his product “The Beebo”.

Better Family’s products The Beebo and Swabbies are trademarked and patented with Swabbies recently completing a successful crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.


What We Do


Parenting is hard enough — Better Family is here to give you a helping hand

Our flagship products are designed with both parents and children in mind — making better parenting solutions for Mom & Dad while giving babies the best care possible.


Beebo gives parents a free hand during feeding time thanks to a unique rotating bottle holder. The design holds the bottle at the perfect angle for your baby while resting on either shoulder. This way holding a book for story-time is no longer such a struggle.


Swabbies take the mess out of diaper changing. Our patented applicators are pre-filled with Swabbies Supreme Diaper Cream, perfect for single-handed, mess-free application. Parents these days don’t have a minute to spare, so finding a product that cuts down on time while ensuring the safety and health of their babies is a no-brainer.


The Business Model


Up to 243% Markup in Retail

We employ a multi-pronged system to distribute our products through retailers, email & digital marketing, baby registries, trade shows, and onsite promotions.


The Beebo has a 243% markup on retail sales and 105% markup on wholesale sales with an average wholesale order of $179.00.


Swabbies has a 148% markup on retail sales and 75%  markup on wholesale sales with an average wholesale order value of $176.00.

How We Are Different


Our unique designs are patent-protected

While there’s no shortage of options for today's busy parents of baby care products to choose from we believe our focus of Making Parenting Easier with healthy values and natural products that add value to the lives of parents, grandparents, and children, sets us apart.


Beebo is specially designed to allow for free-hand bottle-feeding, allowing parents to use that extra hand for any number of things to enhance their feed experience.

Unlike our competitors, who sell creams in messy tubes, jars, and sprays, Swabbies comes pre-filled in a mess-free disposable applicator — perfect for on-the-go diaper changes. 


The Vision


We want to be recognized as the go-to partner for parents looking for Better Products for their kids

Using our considerable exposure from appearances on Shark Tank and similar shows, as well as partnerships with key players like Walmart and Buy Buy Baby, we intend to grow our brand to be recognized in the baby care market as a premier premium brand.

Why Invest


Today's Parents are busier and they need time-saving smart products for their babies every day.

The trend toward organic, natural alternatives for baby products is just getting started. 


Today's modern parent needs to know the ingredients going into all of their baby products, they want more from their bottle-feeding experience. Freeing up a hand during feeding time or while changing a diaper truly changes the game for millions of parents and their babies, allowing them to focus on the things that matter.

Better Family FAQ'S

22 days ago





Better Family Inc. has received many interesting questions, some about our StartEngine campaign and others about our efforts to become a leader of Patented baby care products that make the lives of parents easier and have longevity in the retail market for investor security.

 Here we aim to answer several frequently asked questions to provide clarity regarding customer and investor inquiries to provide deeper insight into Better Familys Capital raise as well as our line of products: The Beebo, Drop it Baby, and Swabbies.

 StartEngine investment campaign

 

 Campaign Questions


What is a crowdfunding campaign?

Crowd funding began with the JOBS Act in 2016, Regulation VF was established so anyone regardless of wealth, can invest in private businesses, that provide their financial information and full disclosure (as would a public company) that they could register online through a SEC-registered broker dealer and raise capital from (the crowd) through funding portals like StartEngine.

Equity crowdfunding through Reg CF allows new companies to access capital for growth early on from the crowd through the sale of either equity, debt etc.

Why did Better Family use Start Engine’s Platform to launch its Reg CF ?

StartEngine is one of the largest equity crowdfunding platforms in the US. They are backed by Mr. Wonderful (Kevin O’Leary from Shark Tank) and have raised over $250M for over 375 businesses to date. With 275K+ registered investors, we believe that StartEngine is a pioneer in online capital raising registrations of both Reg ‘A’ and may be the stand alone leader of Reg CF crowdfunding campaigns. 

Why invest in SE Sponsored companies?

Through the StartEngine platform, investors are provided current financials that give the investor important information that is accurate and reviewed by the SEC . interesting early-growth companies are now available to the average investor as they have never been available before.

You are buying a piece of a company and helping it grow. In time, you may make a profit on your investment if the company grows and becomes more successful, and your investment holdings become worth more. (StartEngine)

How was Kickstarter used by Swabbies and Dropitbaby

Kickstarter raises capital different from a Reg CF. On Kickstarter the investors are sponsors that are Pre-Purchasing company products to be delivered to the buyer at a later date. In most cases the money  prepaid is used for the manufacture of the company's product. The advantage to the buyer is they get to help a company initiate manufacture of their product and are the first ones to get that product at a deep discount from the later normal retail price. 

Both Swabbies and Dropitbaby have successfully used this type of platform for in excess of $30,000 each and have delivered to their backers as promised.

Why raise capital if you did a deal on Shark Tank? 

 When the episode of Shark Tank aired, Martin hill had asked for an investment of $250,000 for 30 percent equity in his company. 

 Ashton and Lori were to split it 15 percent each... However, after the show aired the deal was re-negotiated. The new agreement was a promotion agreement to drive internet sales and help brand the product.  Both Lori and Ashton did assist the Beebo in garnering sales from website traffic and we still enjoy a cordial  relationship with the through our director Martin and his wife Sara.

The agreement between Martin and the Sharks expired prior to Swabbies Tech., Inc. acquiring the Beebo.

Is my investment in Swabbies, The Beebo, or Drop It Baby when investing with Better Family?

When you invest in Better Family Inc., through SE’s Platform you own all three brands. The Beebo, Swabbies, and Drop it Baby and any other products added in the future. 

Do I receive any perks for making a specific investment?

If you invest  $300 or more in Better Family Inc. you will receive a lifetime discount on all Better Family products and larger investments receive additional perks. The lifetime discount is on ALL current and future products. As an investor discounts will be honored when shared  with a family member. There is always someone you know with a baby!

 When will investors see a return on investment?

 Our goal is to hopefully pay dividends in the future however they will be based on the company's future profits. During the immediate future all company profits will be used to fuel the companies growth objectives. Please look for updates in your email as well as on your website at www.betterfamilyinc.com.

 

Can I sell my shares or trade my shares?

Better Family Shares cannot be sold in the open market at this time. Once the offering has officially closed Better Family’s board is considering filing for approval to trade the company's shares on the Start Engine Trading Platform.

 

 Are you going public?

  No current plans 

Better Family Product Questions


Do you have any products you will be adding to the Better Family brand in the future?

 We are always presented with new products to potentially add to our existing line.

At Better Family, our plan is to selectively add  products that make parenting easier. Our most recent acquisition of Drop It Baby is a perfect example. Drop It Baby is a unique well accepted baby product that can be slotted into our existing distribution channels and we can manufacture with stronger margins due to our contacts and purchasing power.

Drop It Baby attachable teethers are squishy, colorful, and BPA-free, each is interactive and safe for your child. The suction cup base with attached ring chain allows for their favorite items to be readily accessible off dirty floors while keeping your hands free. 

 Related Article: Better Family Acquires Drop It Baby, Inc.


Why would I need The Beebo product...can't I just breastfeed?

The main reason is it will provide a free hand for cooking ,eating, reading a story.  And it also benefits those who cannot breastfeed... i.e men, aunts and uncles, grandparents, caregivers, handicapped etc. For instance, fathers who want to be involved with feedings can especially when moms want a break.

Did the Sharks actually invest in The Beebo?

 NO They do not presently own stock in Better Family and were only engaged in past marketing efforts

https://betterfamilyinc.com/

Drop It Baby is a unique item that was invented and developed by JoyLynn Waganer, mother of 4 and the entrepreneur behind this patent pending product. A product that Carman Cook-Campbell, President of Better Family knew would resonate with their customer base and would be a great addition to the companies products that focus on making parenting easier. 

Carman said “With Drop It Baby your child’s favorite items are easily tethered to durable rings that attach to a suction anchor. Drop It Baby’s line accessories for the Drop It Baby are cute lovable teethers i.e. Giraffe, Turtle, Duck, Racoon, Penguin, Cow, Snake, Elephant, Koala Bear, Owl, and Snowflake. 

Carman Cook-Campbell stated this is a tremendous opportunity for Better Family. Drop It Baby is a turnkey company with a solid customer base and distribution network that we at Better Family will be able to leverage to increase sales immediately. The product has been well accepted and is currently selling on Amazon.com and Walmart.com and will now be offered to all our other retailers that sell Beebo and Swabbies Cream.

Better Family acquired 100% of the company in a stock for stock transaction at 25,000 shares of Better Family common stock

and is purchasing the existing Drop It Baby inventory at the cost of goods for  $35,000 that will be paid for as sold. 

In addition, Better Family assumed Drop It Baby’s SBA loan in the amount of $16,700.00 which payments begin in June 2021.

MORE ABOUT DROPITBABYS INVENTOR JOYLYNN 

Mother of 4 An entrepreneur at heart JoyLynn is the creator of a unique patent pending baby product called Drop It Baby. 

With 2 twins she lives in St. Louis with her husband Brian where she has led a successful career as a licensed clinical social worker and behavior analyst. 

After receiving her MBA, she was able to create and grow an autism program nationwide for a large insurance company. JoyLynn's passion for helping individuals with special needs, supporting others to realize their goals. Inventor and mother Joy Lynn had twins born early and her husband Brian was diagnosed with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension. Spending time in the NICU and transitioning the kids’ home it was clear that JoyLynn’s family had some extra challenges ahead. 

Traveling more often with the kids it became clear how important it was to keep germs away from the twins, and those germs seemed to be everywhere. 

Being a very social family, we wanted to be out and about but needed to find a solution to the constant bending over to pick up dropped bottles and constant worry about dirty germ-filled floors where our twins' stuff always tended to land. 

WHY DID DROP IT GET INVENTED? 

Drop It Baby was an invention born of necessity. Not only did it successfully keep baby’s things off dirty floors, but it also helped Brian from having to bend down repeatedly to retrieve fallen items. 

Time spent chasing your child’s favorite toys or bottles across dirty restaurant floors, store aisles etc. are over forever with this brand-new exciting product. Drop It Baby keeps your child’s favorite items secure and germ-free, while restoring parental sanity and confidence.

ABC Virtual Event Was a Huge Success for Better Family, Inc. and their Products.

3 months ago

Great News!

On October 13-16th the team at Better Family was presented the opportunity to showcase our products, The Beebo and Swabbies Diaper Cream along with Drop It Baby at the ABC (All Baby and Child) Expo!

The event was a huge success for Better Family.

After the show we received several orders and even gained a new distributor in the Dominican republic for The Beebo!

One inquiry we are extremely excited about is from koalabear.com for a potential Koala Kare licensing deal for Swabbies applicators.

Our current plans include discussing with the board; benefits and needs from branding for this type of royalty opportunity.

At Better Family we are a huge supporter of this Koala Kare opportunity because it is a well known brand in the market place. Because Swabbies is already a sponsor of “Squat For Change” a viral movement that pushes the need for changing tables in men’s public restrooms.
