Mom & Little

I am Mina. A child of God, a wife to L, a mom to two girls, and everything else in between.

My vision was to make quality CUSTOM hand made products and make it accessible for baby wearing moms to protect their precious carriers while giving our babies something to gnaw on especially during their teething phase. I started to explore the possibility of being an accomplished woman in our modern world in different ways. I had personal encounters on the usual and not-so-usual grind of the corporate world, I’ve been a work-at-home-mom (WAHM), a stay-at-home (SAHM), and everything in between. I’m an advocate of natural parenting –breastfeeding, baby wearing, cloth diapering, baby-led weaning, home schooling, and every bits and pieces of anything under that umbrella. I am blessed to have a loving and supportive husband, two little girls -four years apart, and a wonderful family.

My vision was to make quality CUSTOM hand made products and make it accessible for baby wearing moms to protect their precious carriers while giving our babies something to gnaw on especially during their teething phase. My love for jewelries began since I was a child. When I became a mom, I discovered that babies love jewelries too! I’ve always loved accessorizing and dressing up, but I felt I lost my sense of style when I became a mom, as I think, many women do. When you have babies, you realize they grab everything! Not only do they grab everything, they put everything in their mouths. When we hold a baby, the first thing they grab is our necklace (well, actually, let’s be honest, it’s our hair first and then the necklace! ) My girl would chew on my necklaces or my clothes. So when I’d had my necklaces tugged at and broken, I gave up on wearing jewelries when I’m with them. I instantly understood that baby and jewelry can’t really mesh together.

My vision was to make quality CUSTOM hand made products and make it accessible for baby wearing moms to protect their precious carriers while giving our babies something to gnaw on especially during their teething phase. Yes, as a mom, we all have good days, and we all have not-so-good days. We have our fair share of woes on teething, distracted/fidgety nursing, nail-biting, finger sucking, etc. Having two babies in tow, I threw myself into research trying to find the latest and greatest in baby products and found myself completely absorbed. No matter how many products I found, I couldn’t get enough. In our search for the most multifunctional teething products, we stumbled across silicone jewelries that moms can wear and babies can chew. When we tried it, it was an instant success. Our little one loves to chew them, and I love that I can again wear a necklace and not have to worry about her getting it in her mouth. My husband and I decided that was an excellent product that we could stand behind. This little idea had a spark that caught fire. The mompreneurship bug has been gnawing at me for some time, so I decided to jump on the bandwagon. The seed was planted and Mom & Little started blossoming into reality.

My vision was to make quality CUSTOM hand made products and make it accessible for baby wearing moms to protect their precious carriers while giving our babies something to gnaw on especially during their teething phase. I figured there wouldn’t be too much to lose if I focus on the things that I love. Along the way, I discovered that a baby proof necklace is a moms’ best friend. Combining motherhood and the love for fashion, every idea was born from our need to have accessories that are functional, durable, stylish, safe, and practical; to enable moms to accessorize and wear jewelries again, to help make mommies like me to feel good about themselves again. We choose variety of colors and bead shapes to give moms the choice on what they want to wear, as one would when shopping for usual accessories. My husband and I used to joke, “if walang bumili, okay lang, isusuot ko lahat yan, gagamitin namin lahat yan!”, but yes, I meant that. We love what we’re doing, we love our products. All of these that you see here, we have that, we use that. We’ll never sell a product we don’t love, we’ll never sell anything we wouldn’t let our children use.

My vision was to make quality CUSTOM hand made products and make it accessible for baby wearing moms to protect their precious carriers while giving our babies something to gnaw on especially during their teething phase. Wearing our teething accessories mean you can carry on wearing jewelries every day and feel like you’ve made a bit of an effort to dress up, while being completely safe for your little one to touch, tug, and teethe on. Our goal is to make the teething stage a bit more bearable for your little one, breastfeeding journey and baby wearing more fun and enjoyable, while you, staying stylish in doing your mommy duties. We hope that you enjoy our products as much as we do.
