Babyccino was started ten years ago by three friends...
The three of us met in London in 2005 just after our first babies were born. We quickly bonded over motherhood and the questions, concerns and joys that come with parenting (the foundation of the strong friendship that we still share today!).
In 2007, Emilie moved to Paris, Esther moved to Amsterdam, and Courtney remained in London. We started the Babyccino blog as a way to stay in touch with each other and continue to share our parenting discoveries, tips and ideas from our three corners of Europe.
In 2011, motivated by the noticeable increase in new and beautiful brands in the children’s market, we decided to make a business leap: we launched the Babyccino shopping portal, offering a curated directory of stylish, independent boutiques. We organized the boutiques into relevant shopping categories and highlighted them with inspiring products and editorial reviews. We have always loved supporting independent boutiques, and this was a wonderful way for us to connect shoppers with the products and shops they were seeking.
Nine years on, the Babyccino site continues to offer inspiring daily content and interesting blog posts. We also have kid-friendly city guides for five major cities, and we now represent more than 400 of the best children’s shops from around the world. We also host annual ShopUp events in London, New York and Los Angeles, offering readers the chance to shop in person from some of the finest children’s brands and boutiques (and a wonderful opportunity for us to connect to our readers in person!).
The three of us remain dear friends and deeply committed to growing and evolving our business. We also have a wonderful team of enthusiastic women (and one man!) who share our passion and have become great friends as well. You can read all of our bios below.
Thanks so much for stopping by and being a part of the Babyccino community.
Courtney, Emilie and Esther xxx
