Here at the Marketplace, it’s our mission to bring you
stories of great Canadian mom-based businesses. This week, we’re
thrilled to bring you Erin & Michelle’s story:


Blue Melon Baby is a Canadian Mom Based Business, founded by Erin Palleschi & Michelle Bowler.  Our urban style company based out of the GTA caters to both the baby and toddler markets.  We began our business with our signature non-slip hair barrettes and adjustable hair ties and have expanded our product line to include funky retro-printed chenille blankets, soother holders and our newest product the "Sippy Saver"! 



Frustrated with our kids constantly launching their baby bottles and sippy cups onto the floor, we came up with a super-stylish solution.  The "Sippy Saver" is a fully adjustable strap that can accommodate any make of bottle, sippy cup or favourite toy!  It can be safely attached to high chairs, car seats, strollers and just about anything else imaginable.  The “Sippy Saver” is made from 100% combed cotton and is fully machine washable.  The “Sippy Saver” is currently available in 6 different funky prints designed specifically for kids!  Check out the Blue Melon Baby website at
