Sunshine Baby Alarm
The iRemind by Sunshine Baby was designed by Beverley and Marti McCurdy in an effort to prevent infant deaths in hot cars. Beverley manages the administration and marketing side of the business, and Marti provides the design and engineering contributions. The mother-daughter effort is conjoined to protect the precious cargo of others and is inspired by their 4-year-old great-granddaughter/niece. “We have experience with multiple companies and are excited about the launch of this product line to the parenting and toddler community,” says the pair.
