Babyfriendly is an initiative that I want to launch next year, and for which I am looking for human andfinancial support
I see Babyfriendly as a collection of address of good places to eat and go out with our babies; a kind of Babies'Michelin guide.
The idea came to me when, as a new dad, I realized that going our for a cofee or a bite with the baby was so complicated. So many bar, cafe or restaurant do not offer any facilities for babies, such as baby seats, or a chnaging mat in the toilets. Sometimes they have everything inside but it is practically impossible to get in because of steps, narrow door, or whe you are in you can't move and you can't figure out what to do with the pushchair.
I am sure every parent felt like that when after months spent home, they wanted to get fresh air and test again to what social life means, but they just found the world had changed during their baby's first month. Incredibly, steps sprouted out streets and shops, footwalk became narrower, restaurant more noisy and confined, toilet more smelly, servers less friendly...
Babyfriendly is conceived as a place where parents can share their good, and bad, address for parents with an under 3 can go and enjoy a relaxing friendly time.
The money I wish to raise will have be used in three parts:
1- create a website/app where people can share their address using a google map-type location system.
2- advertise the initiave to cafe and place and the media. the more we will be to exchange, the better babyfriendly will work.
3-create and finance the running of the non-for-profit association that will take of Babyfriendly on a day-to-day basis.
