20 Questions with the Dreamland Baby Founder
The moment Dreamland Baby founder Tara Williams left the Shark Tank after making a deal with serial entrepreneur Lori Greiner, she told herself, “Don’t ever forget this moment because your life is about to change.”
And that it has.
Williams’ story can only be described as tragedy to triumph.
Just before the birth of their fourth child, her husband was laid off from his job of 15 years, and just two months after baby Luke arrived, while still on maternity leave, Tara was also laid off from hers.
Overwhelmed with four children ages five and under, including a baby that just wouldn’t sleep, Tara found herself in a desperate sleep struggle. During one effort to calm the ever-crying Luke, she placed a heavy throw blanket over his body and noticed its instant calming effect. The mother of four then got to work to bring her idea for a weighted sleep sack to life.
As of July 2020, this full-time mom of 4 was able to bring her family from the brink of bankruptcy to financial stability and put Dreamland Baby on track to help 25,000 babies and families get a better night’s sleep this year.
