When it comes to baby shower gifts, I really like something that is practical, yet unique to give to my friends with Little Scoopers on the way. I was so excited when I discovered Milkmouth, a children’s clothing company with creative, handsewn items.
The founder of Milkmouth Kristin Finn, a Delray Beach resident and local mom, was inspired to start this amazing business by a simple handmade blanket she received as a gift when her daughter Ava was born. That gift was the motivation to begin her own line and Ava’s little ‘milkmouth’ (from nursing) inspired the name.
The Milkmouth line started with simple burp cloths, bibs and blankets. Now it has grown including more boutique-style dresses, outfits, pillows and now you can have things embroidered and monogrammed. Each gift is packaged and shipped in an adorable milk carton!
Kristin and her partner Nadia Dewar met 6 years ago at a mommy and me class. Kristin was a stay-at-home mom and Nadia was a nanny. The kids became friends and playdates were scheduled. As their friendship grew, so did Milkmouth. Nadia was that friend that came by the studio to push Kristin through a creative block. She would hang out and chat while Kristin was sewing late at night. After many years of studio nights, they decided to become business partners and grow together, creatively!
The Local Scoop on Milkmouth is it’s a southern, beachy line with a little retro and preppy to boot. “We really try to create ‘udderly adorable’ items that have a little bit of our passion in each stitch,” says the creative designers behind Milkmouth.
