Natural Family Boutique was founded in 2002, originally as Unique Baby Boutique (UBB). It began as a dream for our founder, Kim Pekin. A breastfeeding advocate and mother of six, she is a person committed to attachment parenting and breastfeeding. She found the mainstream baby stores did not meet her needs and the needs of other attachment parents. Further, she found these store's "detachment parenting products" to be very disheartening. The idea for Unique Baby Boutique came to her one day when she thought, "these products are so wonderful; wouldn't it be great if THIS were the mainstream?" Thus began her quest to find a way to make attachment parenting/breastfeeding/natural childbirth products available to more people.
Our Mission and Philosophy
We believe that there is no more important job than that of a parent. To parent well, one must have the information and support necessary to make sound parenting decisions. We support this philosophy through our mission, by providing products that support:
- Natural Childbirth
- Attachment Parenting
- Environmental Responsibility
- Respect for Instinctive Wisdom
We provide products that are generally not available in mainstream retail stores, sharing the joy of attachment parenting with people who may not have otherwise considered its importance.
What Makes Unique Baby Boutique Different?
Our products are breastfeeding friendly. You won't find images of bottles or pacifiers used as decoration on any of our products. Whenever possible, our products are made with either organic or natural materials, or they provide some environmental benefit.
- We make no apologies for our strong belief system.
- Most of our products cannot be purchased at major retail chain stores.
