Celebrating ONE year with Mom’s Milk Boutique!!!

Friday, September 7th, 2012

Exactly ONE year ago I wrote my very first blog post here at Breastfeed.Babywear.ClothDiaper.Naturally! I remember feeling pretty nervous (wondering if anyone would actually even read it?) but also really excited about the opportunity to share my thoughts on topics near and dear to my heart. Throughout this past year I have felt incredibly blessed to be a part of this wonderful community. I am continually impressed by the integrity of the owners as well as the customers at Mom’s Milk Boutique. You are ALL awesome and I thank YOU for making my job so great! 🙂

I often (all.the.time in fact) get asked how I got the position as a Social Media Coordinator for Mom’s Milk Boutique (that’s my official fancy-schmancy title ;)).  I went through an application and interview process just like you would for most jobs. I was super stoked when the position was offered to me. It seemed like an ideal part-time, work-from-home position for a stay-at-home mom. I often write posts while nursing my little one down to sleep in the comfort of my own bed. Honestly, I couldn’t ask for a better gig! Little did I know at the time how awesome of a company Mom’s Milk Boutique truly is! Now that I have a deeper understanding/appreciation for what happens behind the scenes of a small, family owned and operated business, I feel quite honored to be a member of the Mom’s Milk Boutique team.

Mom’s Milk Boutique was founded in 2007 by two sisters, Abbie and Bonnie, committed to natural, eco-friendly parenting products. They opened an itty-bitty storefront in their small town of West Frankfurt, IL. They brought their little ones to work with them (made possible of course by babywearing!) so their babies always had direct access to mama’s milk as needed. 5 years and a few babies later, they have a bigger retail space, carry a wide selection of products, and have an on-line store! Way to go mamas!! I think their story is one that exemplifies the creativity and resourcefulness of mothers in balancing the needs of their families. I like to share their story as an inspiration to mothers everywhere.

I especially love that Mom’s Milk Boutique has very high standards for what products they will carry and strives to offer them to costumers at the very best price possible…all while making it a fun place to shop! There are always specials, contests, freebies, and giveaways happening. The Facebook page is a great place to hang out and chat with mamas from all over the place. They are a very active bunch and about as friendly and welcoming as a group can get!

In my humble opinion Abbie and Bonnie have created something uniquely special that well serves the natural parenting community…and I am filled with gratitude each time I sit down (or rather lay down on my bed with my nursling ;)) to publish a blog post. Thank you ALL for a wonderful first year together!!

Much love, peace, and joy to all, Sarah
