These two moms turned frustration into a beloved product

Can’t find the product you’re looking for? Invent it. That’s what two Vancouver moms, Liz Brezer and Amanda Pilgaard, decided to do when they were fed up with changing sheets every day. They created a PeapodMat that helps kids as they progress through potty training and bed wetting.

"I was fed up with it."

Amanda says changing the bedding daily was the worst for her: “My son has a bunk bed and I can’t tell you how many times I either hit my head or squished my fingers tucking the sheets over that one corner.”

As a busy working mom, she was always on the lookout for something to make potty training process easier. She tried a number of solutions until one day she was out of products to use. That’s when Liz came in and gave her a yoga mat to use.

A yoga mat? Yes, a yoga mat.

Liz' husband created a hot yoga mat that is both water absorbent and machine washable. She started using the mat when her children were only a few weeks old - as a tummy time mat, baby changing mat, potty training and bedwetting mat.

This was exactly what Amanda had been looking for. The two moms realized it was something that other parents would appreciate. Almost five years later, Amanda and Liz are successful business owners, their products help many children that progress through potty training and bed wetting.
