So is it available anywhere?

I'm really dismayed at some of the responses you've gotten here. Before I got pregnant, I was all about my career, but once my husband and I found out we were having a baby, my focus shifted to "what's going to be best for my baby?"

That said, my career is still important to me. I am able to work from home much of the time, but my infant son is a literal handful. I'm still breastfeeding, but we are transitioning him to the bottle since I travel some for work as well. He does *okay* with the bottles with handles, but this product would really help him develop his 'holding' skills without the frustration of dropping the bottle, or having it slip so that only air comes out. (He really gets mad when he shifts his fingers wrong and suddenly the milk is gone!)

I guess I said all of that to tell you that I *love* this idea, as it is. The idea of a more "natural" feel for bottle feeding is immensely appealing. It combines the desire to be a hands-on mother in all things with the fact that you can't always just "whip it out", especially in public. (While breastfeeding is a protected right in most states, it's not always practical).

I would also consider this one of the ultimate "must have" gifts at a baby shower.

Don't change a thing. I'll be on the lookout for this product, unless I can order a couple from you *now*!

We would like to address your question

We would like to address your question – IN NO WAY IS OUR COMPANY A SCAM!!

It is obvious that your question is deliberately structured to imply we are a “scam.” This is false, misleading and, simply put, not possible. Our brochures, affirmative disclosure notice, American Inventors Protection Act notice and written service offer agreements are extremely informative and clear. Unfortunately, we must now consider our legal position and contemplate taking legal action against you in the state of Pennsylvania. From your statements you are subject to intentionally publishing false and defamatory information intending to cause the company harm. You have left us no choice but to instruct you to remove all your posts or a lawsuit will be filed.

Our 250-plus staff-members, and the families they support, don’t deserve to be mistreated by you. You have 48 hours to remove all posts. If you choose not to remove this post, expect to be served with a lawsuit. Attempting to hide behind anonymous posts will not help you.

You should note that Inventorspot.com can expect to be served with a subpoena that will require them to release your email and IP addresses and any other contact information they may have in their records. Inventorspot.com is simply an advertising company and serves as a link farm that makes advertising revenue from ad placements. The managers of Inventorspot.com are not inventors nor do they offer any invention development services. They simply post content to drive their website up in the search engines and in doing so increasing their visitor totals to drive up their rate costs per ad placement.

We would like to note the fact that in the past competitors have posted false and malicious complaints about us on the internet. Instead of choosing to compete by offering economical product design, development and packaging services they have chosen to confuse consumers with false information. We don’t know if this person is a client or not because they did not include any contact information, not even an email address. We have found in the past that competitors hide behind “internet handles” rather than out in the open where their own conduct can be questioned.

We offer economic product design and development services that mirror how manufacturers and corporations design and develop their new inventions. You are most likely not going to find better pricing than what we can offer to research, design, build and package your idea. And, like most manufacturers, we acknowledge and insist that all clients acknowledge that most ideas are not going to be profitable but that inventing demands a positive attitude and that getting a new product onto the market requires a great amount of effort.

It comes down to the “spirit of inventing”. And it is downright stupid for the poster to imply our services are a scam when our services are completely transparent.

Since we don’t know who this anonymous blogger is, we’ll just provide an outline of the services we offer and the way that we offer them:

Step One: All customers must acknowledge the risks of invention development. In order to do so, each prospective customer is provided with an Affirmative Disclosure and an American Inventors Protection Act disclosure, which includes a description of all of our services and estimated fees. All potential clients must acknowledge that they received and read these disclosures before we accept any idea submission from them. Thereby, we ensure that the general public understands that inventing is time-consuming, costly and rarely results in profit. As a result, none of our clients reasonably can have the impression that inventing is easy and financially rewarding. Inventing can be educational, fun and exciting as long as everyone keeps in mind and tolerates the risks.

Step Two: Pre-Development Service Offer: After receipt of an invention idea we could offer to perform preliminary design research services on the project. This would include researching prior patents and other products that are for sale or have been for sale that are similar to the one submitted. Any service offer made to a potential client is made in writing. Therefore, consumers are assured of exactly what services they are purchasing and when they will receive them.

Step Three: Invention Prototype Services Offer: If the inventor does not have a professional quality sample for use, we can perform one or more services, including brainstorming new product designs, designing components, creating prototypes, building working models, virtual reality renderings, and complete product graphics and packaging. Again, any service offerings are outlined in a written contract. Therefore, clients are assured of exactly what services they are purchasing.

Step Four: Licensing Representation: Once projects are designed, built and packaged our team presents them to companies for licensing consideration. Licensing means that a manufacturer is willing to produce, distribute and sell the new product for a set number of years while the owner of the invention is compensated in royalty payments.

The above is a basic outline of how our company does business. If you are ever contemplating any development services, we hope that you will consider us. We think that you will find our prices to be very reasonable for the services we offer.

For over 20 years, we have helped people prepare and present their ideas to corporations and manufacturers to see if they would be willing to license the product ideas. Our exclusive idea to product method is responsible for more products on the store shelves than any other competitor in this industry.

Quick facts about our company and our process

* We are based in Pittsburgh, PA and work with clients from around the world.

Great Invention

I haven't tried your sling yet but am looking into them. I am a mom of multiples, and let me tell all the nay sayers out there that until you have had multiple babies screaming to be fed at the same time, you may not appreciate these products. I do my best to never prop a bottle and to make sure both of my babies are held when feeding. my in laws chip in a lot of time helping me, but my husband must work, as i did before having twins, and I must sleep at some point. There are just times when it is better to make sure their needs are being taken care of rather than allow them to scream from hunger. it doesn't happen every day, but there are times when both need to be fed simultaneously. Some of you just keep arguing about the dumbness of the sling. Good lord, if you don't like it, post your opinion and go away. You can't win every flipping arguement. Pretty lame when you don't even know the person you are arguing with.
