The First Friends Story

Susan and Laura,  co-founders and childhood first friends!

In 2009, two long-time childhood friends were brought together by happiness and heartache.  Laura was celebrating the birth of her first child and Susan was caring for her hospitalized mother.  At night, when both had time to relax and unwind, the idea of the Friendly Pacifier started to take shape.  At first the idea was just a distraction from the realities of life.  Then a prototype was hand made by Laura's mom and put to use by her child.
This Friendly Pacifier prototype instantly solved the age-old problem of a fussy child in the car seat in the back of the car.  The child could control the pacifier holder and quickly learned to self-soothe while not only riding in the car but at home, in a stroller, or anywhere the child was.  Gone too were the lost pacifiers and many, many episodes of crying and discontentment!
As more and more people commented on the Friendly Pacifier prototype, Susan and Laura decided to work night and day to bring the Friendly Pacifier to all moms and First Friends was launched - a company founded by two moms who were first friends!!
