I was awoken first by my son who "thought" he was ready to be awake. I summoned him to do something I had always said I would never do....yep I asked him to crawl in bed with me. After some coaxing he agreed, and wouldn't you know about 20 minutes later in walks my daughter, Lilly. She, needing no coaxing, crawled in on my other side. There I lay in a baby sandwich and all I could think about was how blessed I am to be a mother to these 4 wonderful children.
There are so many things you think you know about yourself prior to having children. That all changes...your standards change, your outlook changes, your character changes....everything changes. How grateful I am to have had to change for them.
I know the Lord created me to be a mother...it is only through Him that I can be a great mother.

Alicia is wife, mother, and creator of Baby Elephant Ears. Baby Elephant Ears was created out of parental concern, not financial desire. In 2005, when their second child was an infant, he cried all the time and just couldn't seem to get comfortable.
After seeking advice and suggestion from the medical community and alternative medicine, they eventually ended up in the chiropractors office where their baby was successfully treated for a subluxation, discomfort most likely the result of the strain during labor, which was now being exacerbated by the normal lack of infant neck strength. Only proper neck, head, and back alignment would offer him relief. When they couldn't find a product to give their baby the necessary support, Alicia took matters into her own hands and crafted her own infant support pillow. The first Baby Elephant Ears was born!
