Meet the Mom behind the brand

The Baby Comfort journey began in Houston, Texas where me and my husband actually met. We are both homegrown originally from California and laid our roots in Texas every since our college years. We are currently married with two beautiful toddlers who are indeed our inspiration.

It all started when…

I became a new, fairly young mother. With the overwhelming “do’s” and “don’ts” of motherhood I found myself becoming paranoid. As a new mom I had so many concerns with the ideal of “SIDS” or something terrible happening to my newborn. The consistent wondering, if I had exhausted all the preventive measures provided. Therefore, I utilized the crib a hundred percent without a single pillow or blanket. Which drove me “crazy” my newborn appeared to be so uncomfortable. This was back in 2010 when the “co-sleeping method” was still frowned upon and lounge beds were not even a thing. 

March of 2010, My journey began. I instantly thought “border” My newborn needs some form of border to feel protected and comfortable while safe at the same time. I began gathering several receiving blankets and began rolling away. I had created a border with an additional cover as an over lay. I scream YES! Finally, it was a perfect little nest that brought me so much relief and joy. I used that nest method for an entire year. Once my son entered the toddler stage, I sadly retired the nest and never thought of it again. Until good girlfriends of mine were expecting then I would always recommend my homemade nest.


SIX YEARS PASSED,  October, 2016 I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. I immediately went back to the “nesting method” It dawned on me finally! That I could actually make the nest and maybe this nest could help other moms. Maybe other moms felt the same why I did! Maybe other moms need this nest thing. The light bulb finally went off!  I began designing and drawing making my vision come to light. After designing I entered the creating phase and began creating and creating and even more creating. The creating phase was very intense and time consuming. The size, the diagram, the width, the length, the curves. I entered the design phase several times back and forth from the creating stage. I finally was happy with a final design. But, there was a BIG problem “I did not know how to sew and had no clue about fabric” I did not even own a sewing machine for that matter. .  What a Dilemma!  I immediately took to “YouTube” and became very familiar with the brand “Singer”. I proceeded to Joann’s and purchased my very first sewing machine valued at $49.99. I watch several youtube tutorials and began teaching myself how to sew and becoming very knowledgeable of different styles and techniques. At this point I was creating beds and passing beds along to expecting family and friends and received great feedback. The beds became a passion project of mine.  I remember traveling to California to visit my mother who stated she recently found a used sewing machine that looked like it had never been used. The sewing machine was a very, older model and the brand was nothing I have ever seen before. Therefore, I took to google and started searching “The Montgomery Ward Signature Portable Sewing Machine” She was a beauty, I quickly fell in love with the old style and the real metal. This style of machine reaches back to the early 1950’s and that was even more exciting. I quickly returned back to “YouTube” to understand how to properly use the machine. I also returned back to Houston thrilled on my new journey just slowing progressing.
