Hannah Rayner was so fed up with constantly having to change her toddler's top because of his drool that it inspired her to create her own clothing range.
The Cheshire mum's DribbleDry baby clothes use a combination of micro-fleece and bamboo fabric that takes moisture away from the garment and then suspends it until it is washed.
The products look like normal garments but have a dribble absorbent section incorporated into the upper body of the clothing.
Not only does it stop parents having to keep changing their kids' clothes, it also helps prevent the rashes that often develop as a result of their chins and necks getting damp.
After success with her initial range of bibs, baby grows and T-shirts, the 37-year-old is now planning to expand the range to include jumpers and dresses and have a wider choice of designs.
Hannah, who quit her job in media sales at The Chronicle's sister paper the Manchester Evening News in July 2015 to develop her products, said: "I first had the idea in 2009 when my youngest son, Harry, who was two at the time, was dribbling heavily.
"He was dressed in a smart outfit but it was covered by a large wet patch, which looked awful.
"I then put a bib on him but that just hid his nice clothes. I just wanted a normal top that looks like a top but also acts like a bib, but when I searched there was nothing out there.”
Hannah, of Holmes Chapel, is married to builder husband Scott, originally from Oldham, and is mum to Jack, 15, and Harry, who is now eight.
She is in discussion with a number of major retailers about her range and is also looking at designing specifically for people with disabilities and the adult care home market.
She said: "Babies all dribble and drool at some point in their early years.
"This can become worse during teething as they naturally produce more saliva.
"It’s all perfectly normal but saliva can cause dribble rash around the baby’s delicate chest area as it contains digestive enzymes that can irritate the skin.
“Soggy clothing isn’t comfortable for a baby and doesn’t look great either. The microfleece top layer of the absorbent chest area wicks away moisture so the clothes don't look or feel wet.
“The absorbent bamboo layer also has anti-bacterial and odourless properties."
Hannah added: "I’m excited about all the positive feedback we are getting and amazed my product is out there and helping people now.
“A lot of people have said they wished this type of thing had been around years ago. They are amazed how good the quality is.”
