Mom’s Milk Boutique was opened in 2007, in West Frankfort, Illinois, by two sisters, both moms of two toddlers. Frustrated with the lack of natural parenting products sold at local stores, we opened the Boutique to provide moms in the Southern Illinois area access to these products close to home.
After opening our brick and mortar store, we decided to expand online at the end of 2007. We are here to help. We are still sister run and we are still mamas with young babies that we bring to work, so if you visit us, bring yours in too! We have a nice comfy area to sit and nurse.

Cloth diapering for us came about as a way to save money. Like many people, we thought cloth diapering meant pins and plastic pants. However, when we ran across the colorful and very hip, Fuzzi Bunz , we were hooked. We loved that they could be paired with cute leggings (like Babylegs) for a great look for a boy or girl. Additionally, the diapers were adjustable, so they fit for a long time. Our medium Fuzzi Bunzs have fit our 2nd babies through potty training!! Since then we have tried a ton of diapers and fallen in love with several. If you have questions about any of them…just email and ask!
After cloth diapering, we did further research and found out about the benefits of baby-wearing – babies cry about 51% less and it’s good for their emotional, mental and physical development! We think it’s awesome that celebrities like Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie, Brooke Shields, Keri Russell, Denise Richards, Sheryl Crow and Gavin Rossdale & Gwen Stefani are helping to make baby-wearing more mainstream.
We couldn’t find nursing bras that fit and didn’t fall apart! We also wanted a clean rinsing laundry soap for the diapers and for everyday clothes, so we found out about and started washing in Charlie’s Soap. And the list went on….
So, we thought…why not here?!! And Mom’s Milk Boutique was born.
