It was 10pm one night and Lauren was holding her screaming baby. She was so tired she couldn't remember the last time her baby ate, had a poop or took a nap. In desperation she sent her husband to Target. Surely if there is a button that brings food to your house (thanks Door Dash!), there MUST be a device (that isn't a phone!) to track baby's day to day activity. He came home empty handed, and that's when Lauren and her husband started building their own one-touch logger...Talli Baby was born! () In this episode Lauren Longo, creator of Talli Baby, shares why it was important to build a device that doesn't depend on having your phone nearby, how it brings peace of mind to families and why using a tracker like Talli is helpful to families with multiple caretakers.
