Placerville, CA – Janet DeMaria is an inventor, entrepreneur, owner, and founder of Skadoosie, an online apparel for newborns.

An interior designer by trade, Janet decided to leave her corporate job after her husband tragically and unexpectedly passed away from asbestos cancer. In deep mourning, feeling she needed positive change, she decided to start babysitting. One day, while she was changing the diapers of a 4-month-old she found herself extremely frustrated with the snaps on the baby’s onesies. These snaps were the cause of sweating and rashes when her own son was a baby.  At that point, it dawned on her that she could design her own onesie, so she expertly began creating prototypes. Gone are the days of discomfort, rashes, and sweating for our pampered little babies.

Soon after, Janet began diligently working with a manufacturer, and started attending trade shows and expos all over the country, officially becoming an online business. In 2016 Janet acquired her patent. Skadoosie has received, Parents Magazine Editor Pick 2018 titled “Why didn’t I think of that”, The National Parenting Seal of Approval, and Mom’s Choice Award Gold.

Today, she is experiencing a surge in happy satisfied clients and is proud that every sale she makes contributes to finding a cure for asbestos cancer in honor of her beloved husband.

Janet says for those of us thinking inventions must be technical or complicated, it can actually as be as simple as possible and yet be life changing.

Currently, she is adding hoodies and a bigger variety of adorable design with ruffles and will even custom design any of her Skadoosies at her client’s request.
