Entrepreneur Turns Challenges into New Product Line
“Our son suffered from frequent nasal congestion and out of necessity I created a nasal aspirator that worked better than anything else that was on the market,” explains Peter Champe, engineer and owner of Baby Comfy Care. “We are thrilled that Walgreens has taken interest in offering our nasal aspirator. This is a great step in the right direction on where we want to take our business.”
As an engineer, Champe had the ability to take his idea of building a better nasal aspirator and making it a reality. He designed it and had it manufactured in his hometown of Longmont, Colo., then, worked to get it noticed. What sets this nasal aspirator apart is that it uses the parent’s own lung suction, which makes it more effective than bulb and battery type aspirators. It is designed to use household tissue as a filter, eliminating the possibility of user contact with mucus and germs. The nose tip is soft and designed so that it cannot be inserted too deeply into the baby’s nostril. It comes with a dishwasher/storage pouch that allows the unit to dry hygienically and keeps all the pieces together in the diaper bag. Baby Comfy Nose is available in three colors to keep sibling’s aspirators separate.
“Taking a product from an idea to manufacturing and marketing it has been interesting, challenging, and rewarding,” adds Champe. “We have our foot in the door at one major store chain. We are looking to the horizon to see what will be the next.”
In addition to the Baby Comfy Nose aspirator, the company has also created an innovative sun poncho for children, and a revolutionary safety nail clipper. The Baby Comfy Products are sold online at the company site, while the aspirator is also sold at all Walgreens retail locations.
