We're a husband and wife team with two rambunctious toddlers and we built Bottell to help parents like us.
Before we had kids, I remember being warned about how hard it'd be and I always assumed that people said that because it was so emotionally difficult. While it was emotionally draining at times, when I think back to those first few months after our son was born, it was more of a mental challenge than an emotional one. We were in problem-solving overdrive the first year as we were learning how to keep a baby alive, troubleshooting problems that popped up, constantly shifting routines to accommodate changing nap patterns, trying to stay on top of upcoming developmental milestones, and working through some medical issues.
Now that our kids are 1 and 3, we don't have as many problems to solve, but we have new challenges like "How can we raise our kids to be empathetic and kind?", "What should we be teaching them at this stage?", "Are we doing enough?".
Sure, we can read books, subscribe to newsletters, watch videos, and follow social media accounts to make sure that we and our kids are on the right track, but that is a lot to sift through and is often too generic to be useful.
Discovering the capabilities of ChatGPT was a game changer for us. It was a faster and more enjoyable way to get answers to our questions and it was especially useful in brainstorming activities that our kids enjoy and that fit our lifestyle. The idea for Bottell began to take shape, and we've been working on it in the evenings after the boys go to sleep ever since.
Our dream with Bottell is to support parents like us, facing the complexities and joys of raising little ones. We've created a parenting sidekick that's not only helpful in troubleshooting, but one that evolves with your child's development, providing tailored guidance every step of the way.
Join us in making parenthood a bit easier, one question at a time.
