Our Story

We are moms and management consultants, turned entrepreneurs!

We met tap dancing, and were friends right away. How many people can you say that about? Our earlier days as friends were focused on work, wine and travel. As we became moms, we continued drinking wine but our focus shifted to our families.

When our toddlers moved from cribs to "big boy beds", we experienced some interesting situations. Krista discovered a sprinkler in her 2 year old's bed one morning and realized he had escaped his room and gone out into her yard through a dog door in the night. A few months later as Lisa's son began to climb out of his crib, she too discovered the challenges of a wandering toddler. At the time, we both had video capable baby monitors that had not alerted us of our toddler's leaving their rooms, and we were unable to find a reliable solution.

As we discussed our challenges, we quickly learned two things:

  1. Toddlers wandering undetected, especially at night, is a huge problem that causes frustration and stress for many parents.
  2. There are no products in the market that reliably solve this problem, causing parents to worry or take drastic measures such as locking their child into their room to keep them safe.

We decided to solve this problem so that parents can have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that their toddlers are in bed, safe and sound. And so, a new category of child safety products was born and DECCO the Toddler Monitor is the first of its kind.

Parenthood is challenging, so we hope that our product will allow you to relax a bit more, get a good night's sleep, and enjoy the time you have with your kids.
