Michelle and Jason brought their twin feeding pillows to the tank and Michelle demonstrated how it worked.

Kevin O’Leary wanted to know whether the company had any sales, and the couple shared that they already had $300,000 in sales at the time of filming. Looking ahead, they would likely reach $510,000 by the end of that year. A single unit costs $29.00 to make and sells for $99.00.
Mark Cuban admitted that he had a lot of respect for the entrepreneurs, but it wasn’t a fit for him as an investor so he dropped out. Kevin was interested however and made an offer of $75,000, in exchange for a $10.00 royalty until he makes three times his money back. In addition to the royalty, he wanted 2.5% equity. Robert Herjavec made the exact same deal as Kevin, but he only wanted to make twice his money back. Lori Greiner decided to make an offer of $150,000 in exchange for a $5.00 royalty until she’s paid back and wanted 5% equity.
Barbara Corcoran offered the couple $75,000 for 20% equity.
