How Sweet Bean's Diaper Dust was Born

When Hal (aka Sweet Bean) was 4 months old, he developed this brutal diaper rash. Absolutely nothing we tried helped. Everything we tried made it worse and worse.

A friend suggested we try browned flour. It sounded crazy, but we were desperate enough to try anything. Within 24 hours, there was a significant improvement in his rash. Within 3 days, it was completely gone. My husband said, "We need to sell this stuff."

Enter my mother-in-law. Sandy had recently retired, and was looking for some way to use her considerable handwork skill as a platform for a home-based business. We put our heads together, and, after many months of research and work, Sweet Bean's was born.

I'll be blogging frequently about the different steps we took to launch our small business.
