Margo Smith, Inventor of Mother's 3rd Arm
with her collection of grandchildren
More than a decade ago, Margo Smith was eagerly awaiting the arrival of her daughter who was traveling from Phoenix to Margo’s cabin nestled in Arizona’s high hill country. Her daughter had blessed her with two grand children.
What should have been a regular routine trip, turned into a near nightmare. Dealing with two children is in itself is a hand fill and produces frequent moments of stress, but driving while dealing with hungry active infants can not only be stressful, but down right dangerous.
Margo’s daughter was late and Margo worried. Cell phones did not operate in the mountainous region and so all she could do was wait until finally her daughter arrived in a literal state of hysteria. Multiple her infants became hungry and displayed temper tantrums.
Margo was very deeply affected by her daughter's distress. At first all she could do was console her. But later that night, and being a woman of action, she asked herself the question: What can I do to help my daughter never experience this again?
The next day Margo went to work on the world's only truly universal bottle holder.
She interrogated her daughter in meticulous detail and isolated a common point. The twins were ok as long as they were fed. Whether at home while doing chores, or driving to the store or visiting relatives, Margo's daughter often found herself overwhelmed because she only had two arms.
The solution was simple. Her daughter needed an assistant, a kind of third, and even fourth arm to feed the kids when she simply was unable to. They needed a baby bottle holder that allowed mother's to attach it to car seats and hold the child's bottle or sippy cup. Margo and her daughter then began to search high and low on the retail market for this practical device. Surely, they reasoned, someone had already invented it and can be found in the stores? No such device existed.
Her daughter needed a third arm and by God, Margo would give her one. Within a week's time Margo produced the first prototype of what would become internationally known as Mother’s 3rd Arm™
In 2007, Dr Salma Merritt, MD was asked by a friend to complete the design on
what was being called "Happy Hand." Her friend had spent considerable time and
money on developing a crude prototype and Salma used her technical abilities to
produce a finished product. From there she and her husband manufactured a full
production sample run.

There was only one problem: Dr Salma and her husband were not satisfied with the product'. The idea was to hold most size baby bottles and Sippy cups and to clap onto most baby strollers, high chairs, car seats, baby cribs and play pens; however, it was very limited in these areas. This prompted Dr Salma to investigate.
In July 2008, Salma gave birth to Abraham, and for the first time, she directly
experienced what a modern professional mom had to face in managing their
household, profession and child. It was clear that she needed help. Yes, she
was able to hire a live-in Nanny who relieved quite a bit, but this had its
