About Milk and Honey

family photo 2015I am a mother of seven children (currently ages 10, 8, 7, 5, 3, 2, and 4 months). My husband is a firefighter and I am a registered nurse. In 2009, I put nursing on hold to be home with our children full-time, which has proven to be the most difficult and rewarding work of all. Since then, our family has grown alongside our home business, for which I design unique sweet essentials for mom and baby.

Early one morning when our second daughter was a baby, I woke to the sound of her muffled cries. As she slept, she had become tangled in her blanket, and it had wrapped around her face…thankfully without harm. After that incident though, we began using sleep sacks in the crib as a safer alternative to traditional baby blankets.

However, the widely available sleep sacks in cotton and fleece were often not warm enough. The rest of the family slept under down blankets, which were perfectly cozy, light and lofty for year-round use.

I marveled at the thought of my baby snuggled in a down sleep sack made to stand the test of time.

After several experiments with sketching and producing an original pattern, I successfully created a sleep sack with down fill and adjustable sizing with snaps (patent pending), which was originally known as the “Snuggle Down”. I made several for family and friends, progressively improved the product in aesthetics and function.

The Baby Snap Sack® is now manufactured in Cincinnati by an independent contract sewing team + Ohio Down & Feather Company, and is keeping babies warm and safe for sleep all over the world.

Our newest product, The Milk & Honey Wrap®, was introduced in the Fall of 2013…When our fifth baby was nursing often, I used her favorite blanket for the car seat and stroller as a convenient cover for privacy in public. As she grew older and more active though, it became a very common occurrence for her to kick or pull the blanket off when I was least expecting it.

When I experienced the need first-hand for a simple baby blanket, which could convert to a securable nursing cover, I began the journey to develop a new unique product.

The Milk & Honey Wrap®, (patent pending) is an all-in-one baby blanket, nursing cover, and infinity scarf. For nursing, the cowl neck drape provides the ability for a mother to view her nursing baby without a rigid apparatus, and 360 degree coverage provides optimal comfort.

All of our products are made in the USA. I hope you enjoy our products as much as we do! Please contact susan@themilkandhoneyco.com with any questions about Milk and Honey products.
