About

I am a mother of six children (9, 8, 7, 5, 3, and 1...and another due any day!). My husband is a firefighter and I am a registered nurse. In 2009, I put nursing on hold to be home with our children full-time, which has proven to be the most difficult and rewarding work of all. Since then, our family has grown alongside our home business, for which I design unique sweet essentials for mom and baby.

When our daughter was a baby, I woke to her muffled cries early one morning. She had become tangled in her blanket during the night, and it was wrapped around her face. She was okay; but we decided to begin using sleep sacks in the crib as a safer alternative to traditional baby blankets.

Since then, our family has grown alongside our home business, for which I design unique sweet essentials for mom and baby.

When our daughter was a baby, I woke to her muffled cries early one morning. She had become tangled in her blanket during the night, and it was wrapped around her face. She was okay; but we decided to begin using sleep sacks in the crib as a safer alternative to traditional baby blankets.

Soon after that incident, our son was born during the process of building our home, which is heated solely with a wood stove. At first he slept in a standard cotton sleep sack, which was both safe and soft -- but he often woke up cold during the night, he outgrew one every few months, and the Velcro® closures did not hold up well through multiple washes.

The rest of the family slept under down blankets, which were perfectly cozy, light and lofty for year-round use. I marveled at the thought of my baby snuggled in a down sleep sack made to stand the test of time.

After several experiments with sketching and producing an original pattern, I successfully created a sleep sack with down fill and adjustable sizing with snaps (patent pending), which was originally known as the “Snuggle Down”. I made several for family and friends, progressively improved the product in aesthetics and function, and began by selling on Etsy in 2009.

Here at The Milk & Honey Co., necessity has truly proven to be the mother of invention. I hope you enjoy our products as much as we do!
