We’re childhood friends that first met in sixth grade. We’ve shared a lot of experiences over the years, but since we each had our first child we found one more thing in common: we couldn’t find the trendy clothes we wanted for our kids! After realizing no one had what we were looking for we knew the only way to solve our problem – and yours – was to create a clothing line that translates comfort into style. Because we feel both little boys and little girls deserve to look great, our line is gender neutral. And since we’ve developed this line with our own little ones in mind, we use only the softest organic cotton.
I’m a military wife, married to my wonderful husband since 2010, and mom to an amazingly cute and active little boy and a very beautiful and sweet little girl. After living overseas for two years we are back on USA . As a military family it’s hard being away from friends and family, but I also enjoy visiting new places, learning about different cultures and experiencing new things. I’m passionate about fashion, style and babies. Starting this business is my dream and I’m so happy to share it with my dear friend Aline, whom I’ve known for over 20 years. Between baby naps and preparing meals, we skype (since we currently live in different states) to talk about all the great ideas we have for the next collection and everything under the sun. I could never imagine running this business without her as my partner.

Being a stay home mom is hard work, much harder than I imagined six months ago, before my daughter was born. So, when Carla called asking if I wanted to start this business with her, I was both excited and freaked out, because I didn’t think I could handle it all. But I fell in love with the project right away and I’m so excited to see Le Lait Baby up and running! I am blessed to have a wonderful and supportive husband, a beautiful family that is my everything, and awesome friends – like Carla. We grew up together, we went through so much together, we stood up at each other’s weddings, and we are now watching our babies grow up. She’s a strong, brave woman and I couldn’t have picked a better partner to share this adventure with.
