What’s with your name?

When Kris and I were expecting our first child way back in 2001, I had been working in Montreal at a small web design firm for about a year, this was my very first job in the field. I knew I would be going on maternity leave in a few months so I wanted to create a portfolio website to showcase the web work I had done. While I was brainstorming one day on what to use as my domain name, I looked down at my belly and thought ‘I’m having a Lap Baby”. The “lap” referring to Kris’ last name Laptos. I laughed and said “we were having a Laptos baby and the name stuck.

We are thrilled our son was the inspiration for the business all those years ago. After our son was born, I never went back to my old job or the corporate world at that. We took a leap of faith and decided to start out on our own. We became stay at home working parents. And that’s the story behind the making of Lapbaby Designs!
