Our Story

It all started with a baby, a pile of paper, and a couple of plane tickets.

My husband and I were leaving our 6 month old baby with my parents for our first week-long getaway.  I had a pile of lists in front of me – the baby’s packing list, my packing list, my to-do list, and the list of instructions for my parents.

We arrived at their house with an SUV full of supplies and equipment – car seat, stroller, bathtub, diapers, wipes, bottles, clothes, pacifiers, bibs, toys, books, and so many other things.  The list of instructions was long – diaper changes, feeding times, bottle amounts, nap times, bed times, sleep routines, and more.

I realized that I kept writing the same lists and instructions over and over again.  Every time we went on vacation or a weekend trip I made packing lists and to-do lists.  Whenever we had a sitter I wrote out emergency contact information and instructions.  It was frustrating and such a waste of precious time.  I thought there had to be a better way.

Then I started using a smart phone and I discovered mobile apps.  I found apps to help me with most of the tasks for my daily life, but I couldn’t find an app to help me plan for date night or travel.  So I decided to use my software product management background to build one.  And that’s how Little Peanut on the Go was born.

Your on the go lifestyle doesn’t need to end when baby arrives.  Any time you need a sitter or a suitcase, let Little Peanut on the Go help you stay on the go.
