For someone unfamiliar with LILLEbaby, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
LILLEbaby is a U.S.-based company where every employee is sincerely passionate about babywearing. We set out to make the best carrier on the market – one that was complete in every way. We studied and interviewed parents and brought in specialists and made improvements until we felt it was truly COMPLETE (and then we improved it some more, just because we didn’t want anything missing). We feel we have the best and most functional soft structured carrier on the market. Recently, our product line has expanded beyond soft structured carriers to include ring slings and stretchy wraps!
Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
LILLEbaby was founded by Lisbeth Lehan, a designer, in the early 2000’s. When she created the brand her intent was to improve the quality of life for parents with young children. By consulting with a team of parents, designers, fashion consultants, and safety experts she created a product that successfully mastered merging safety and comfort with convenience and style. As the Babywearing industry continues to grow and change, Lisbeth has stayed true to her mission of purposeful products and has expanded the collection to include toddler carriers, ring slings, stretchy wraps and a hip seat style carrier.
What are the most popular and/or newest products from LILLEbaby?
Our most popular carrier is definitely our COMPLETE, we have so many different fabric options and design choices there’s really something for everyone! Within the last year, we’ve also redesigned our toddler carrier and added a ring sling, stretchy wrap and hip seat style carrier to our product line as well!
What sets LILLEbaby apart in the baby carrier marketplace?
The design of our carriers is quite thoughtful, we really work to understand the need of the community and find a solution that combines function and comfort with style and affordability. We have a diverse product line to appeal to every type of caregiver and take pride in creating a product that allows parents to bond and connect with their children in a natural and beautiful way.
What can parents expect from LILLEbaby at the Chicago Baby Show?
Expect to get personal with our products! Feel your back melt once you’ve used our lumbar support from our COMPLETE and CarryOn carriers, let your hands glide over the smooth Tencel blend of our Tie the Knot wraps, marvel at the intricate detail of our custom rings on the Eternal Love ring slings, and experience the innovation and practicality of our SeatMe hip seat carrier. We can’t wait to meet you!
