Melissa Box was a Senior Corporate Account Manager at an agency specializing in event planning who after becoming pregnant with her son Camden decided to work part time at Snuggle Bugz in order to learn more about all the latest trends in Baby Gear. While working there she fell in love with the industry as a whole and in particular with child safety and education.
After learning all she could about car seat safety from working at Snuggle Bugz, by reading Car Seat manuals and watching instructional videos online she was still unsure of if she had installed her Car Seat correctly. When talking to her friends, who were also mothers, they were just as unsure as she was and they could not find anyone in their area that was certified to help them. So Melissa decided to become a CPSAC Certified Car Seat Technician herself so she could properly install car seats and help her friends and other families in her area feel confident that their little ones were riding safely and securely in their vehicles.
Melissa came up with the original idea for Li’l Squirts while working at Snuggle Bugz and having to comfort several mothers who were very upset after trying to wash their car seat covers, shrinking them and then having no idea how to put them back on the frame. When Camden turned 18 months old Melissa realized she was in the same predicament when she noticed how dirty her son's car seat had become. After searching for car seat cleaning companies to do it for her she was shocked to find that there were none in Canada that were reputable and used non-toxic, baby safe cleaning products so she decided to make Li'l Squirts a reality by combining all of her skills and knowledge on the baby gear industry, marketing and event planning.
