Small Business Spotlight: Latchy Catchy

I haven't done a small business spot light in a while now so one is well over due!

Today's spot light is on Latchy Catchy, a truly simple but truly ingenious product that no parent with a little should be without!
I discovered Latchy Catchy on Instagram (where I have found 98% of the small business I now love) and had one of those "why didn't I think of that" moments at the simplicity of the design. 
Latchy Catchy is a small approximately, 4" x 2" rectangular piece of fabric that comes in 50 different colors and patterns. It is made with a thin padding in the center and elastic loops on either end that allow it to stretch and fit over any (in)door handle. 
The effect is that the product keeps the door from relatching, and I love ours! 
As a toddler the Little Jedi can reach the door handles in the house but can't always get the knob to turn and push/pull the direction he needs the door to go. 
With Latchy Catchy on the doors he is not locked in or out of any room, a simple push or pull on the door and it opens with ease! 
Latchy Catchy also allows you to more silently open and close doors when checking in on little ones who are sleeping. As a parent we know the often very real struggle it is to get and keep our littles asleep and that the slightest noise can wake them and the rest of the day be ruined by a cranky sleepy monster. Well if you have Latchy Catchy you need no longer fear looking in on them!
Latchy Catchy is such a great product that it has been featured in Family Fun magazine and Country Living which is impressive considering  the company is still quite young and that it is a one women team making all of them while also caring for her family!

Creator and owner of Latchy Catchy, Lyndsey Gaskins says, "The Latchy Catchy evolved when we got so tired of hearing our bedroom door slam, waking baby Karson, that I attached a sock (covering the latch) with a rubber band on each knob. It was quite the eye sore and we decided that that had to be a better way. Turns out, there was, and it is now called Latchy Catchy!"

There are so many products out there that are pushed on parents as something they need but in reality they never use it or only use it once; this is not that product! Believe me when I say you need this product and you will love it. After owning the product myself and experiencing it first hand it has made it onto my (short) list of gifts to give to an expectant/new mom! 
It's truly a gift that keeps on giving for a long, long time!

Lyndsey is constantly hosting and participating in giveaways on their Instagram so if you follow them over there you can have the opportunity to win one for yourself (or to give to a friend).
