Louise Guinda is mum to Ali, aged four, and lives in Aberdeen. The idea of developing her product, the Cot Wrap, a breathable cot bumper, came to Louise four years ago, after Ali suffered a near-tragedy while sleeping too close to his thick, quilted cot bumper.
The Cot Wrap is now the top selling cot bumpers on Amazon.co.uk and is exported throughout Europe. In 2012, the product won the Bounty Made by Mum and Dad Gold Award, beating 24 other products. Louise"s second range of products, Safebreathe toys, were finalists in the prestigious Kind und Jugend Innovation Awards (the "Oscars" of the nursery industry) and were snapped up by high street chain JoJo Maman Bebe from launch.
