Isossy Children meets Claire Mitchell, Founder & Inventor of Chillipeeps

We love new ideas and inventions that help parents be the best that they can be and that keep children happy too! So when we had the chance to interview Claire Mitchell, the inventor of the multi-award winning chillipeeps we were very excited. Chillipeeps solves a common problem many people experience when out and about with young hungry babies and no clean sterilised bottle to use, by allowing a teat or spout to be attached directly to a carton to feed your baby and many mineral water bottles to enable you to rehydrate your baby. Read about Claire's journey and be inspired!

What inspired you to start your business? A EUREKA moment, we were late setting off to a family party with our baby daughter. As we had just set off driving I asked my husband if he’d picked up the clean sterilised bottle, as I knew I had ready-made formula cartons in the car. He said ‘Oh you will have done’ So I asked him to check because I couldn’t remember. As he rummaged over the back seat in the baby bag, I ranted ‘Why hasn’t anyone invented anything that directly attaches to the carton?’ We had the bottle and carried on to the party. Six hours later we got in the car to go and I said ‘I can’t stop thinking about it’, the husband said ‘What?’, typical man he’d already forgotten. ‘Why hasn’t anyone invented anything that can directly attach to the carton?’
