Thought of material diapering came up when we saw the measure of dispensable diapers we utilized for our child in the house. Following 2 years of serious R&D with my prime supporter/companion Ashwanth, we dispatched 'A Toddler Thing' with a plan to reform the craft of present day nurturing in India. The brand's rationale is to cause the new age mothers to comprehend the advantages of fabric diapering and change to utilization of non-harmful, eco-accommodating and reusable child care stock.
Being another contestant to the business with no involvement with materials, we confronted a considerable amount of difficulties directly from sourcing of crude materials, making tests and getting the correct arrangement of items which was acknowledged by the market and the clients.

We began as an online store in December 2017 and gradually following year and a half in the business we have client base of over 10,000 and we supply to 25 stores and 10 online commercial centers the nation over!
Each time we get a good criticism from our client, we feel awesome to be a piece of their nurturing venture and the trust and the honesty they have in our items . It makes us work much harder to enhance our administrations. In any case, the most passionate second was, the point at which I had the opportunity to utilize our items on my child and encountering it by and by as a mother, than a brand proprietor who created it! It caused me to understand the estimation of the items we have made.
Also, We have been perceived as a RUNNER UP 'Best eco-accommodating diaper brand in 2018′ by KSP Awards, and that was quite possibly the most critical and remarkable achievement in our image's excursion.
