Milk Snob

milk snobMelanie Disbrow introduces the Sharks to Milk Snob, her multi-functional infant car seat cover and nursing cover, when she pitches her business in Shark Tank episode 809. Disbrow, who immigrated to the USA from Germany in 2006, is the mother of three small children. When she went searching for an infant car seat cover, she couldn’t find a product that met her style ad functionality criteria; that’s when she decided to make her own.

That incident led to the invention of Milk Snobs. It’s basically a little tent that goes over and infant car seat to keep baby out of the direct sun or rain. When it’s time to feed, it serves as a nursing cover for moms while they breast feed. Her product is patent pending.

Milk Snobs come in a wide variety of patterns and colors; Melanie is constantly adding new designs to keep things fresh. She also sells swaddle blankets. A Milk Snob cover costs $36 and a swaddle blanket is $18. Reviews are unanimously positive for Milk Snob – moms everywhere LOVE it.

Melanie likely wants a Shark to help her expand into retail. Will a Shark bite?
