tranquiloMaternity Nurse turned inventor Melissa Gersin seeks an investment for Tranquilo, her vibrating baby mat to sooth infants, in Shark Tank episode 816. Gersin spent six years in the maternity ward at Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She is a proponent of using motion and soothing sounds to mimic life in the womb as a method of calming fussy infants.

Since she worked with thousands of parents over the years, she noticed many had difficulties soothing their infants. Without any experience designing products, she created her first prototype of the product that became the Tranquilo mat. The word means “quiet” in English, a word many new parents are unfamiliar with!

Babies spend nine months in the womb surrounded by amniotic fluid. They move with their mother constantly and hear the comforting sounds of mother's heartbeat, blood flow and other bodily functions. Gersin's mat gently vibrates and makes low-level sounds that sooth a baby (and its parents). It's portable, easy to clean, customizable, and fits in anything your baby gets into from car seats to cribs. You can even swaddle a child in a Tranquilo mat.

A small mat costs $65, the large version is $85. She also sells custom covers for the various mats for $25. Gersin likely needs a Shark to help her get into mass retail. Will a Shark find investing in this business a soothing enterprise?

Tranquilo Shark Tank Recap

Melissa will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. He’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Grenier, and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but he’ll need to show them HE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Tranquilo will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
