Farida is a mom of one and co-founder of zCush infant support mat.

How did you come up with the idea for your product?  When I had my daughter, my in-laws visited us from abroad and brought a mat in which to place and hold her more comfortably. After using it everyday, I realized the practicality of this product and the changes it could bring to the American market. We started searching here for similar products  and not being able to find any, my friend and I worked on a mat adapted for families here.

How many children do you have and what age groups?  I have one 23-month-old daughter.

What’s your favorite parenting tip?  My favorite parenting tip comes from my dad: “Good better best, Never let it rest. Till your good is better, and your better best”

What has surprised you most about parenting?  The thing that surprises me about parenting is how priorities change when kids come into our lives and the extent we are willing to go to see them happy.

How do you get your kids to eat healthy food?  I avoid bringing chocolates and junk food at home, and mostly feed her home cooked meals which she loves and enjoys.

How do you work exercise into your family’s life?  Running around my daughter who is extremely hyper and active all day gives me a good workout. Also I take her to the park so she can play and interact with kids her age.

How do you recharge your batteries?  Sitting on the couch and surfing the internet, reading the latest news, and listening to music usually recharges my batteries.
