A lot of you have been asking about restocks. We are in the process of perfecting our Maren Grace design in addition to a new design we are very excited about. There is a lot that goes into our designs including pattern making, sample making, fittings, adjustments, etc. We will be restocking these beauties in the New Year, hopefully sooner. These are designs we will continuously carry in lots of amazing fabrics. We appreciate your patience and know it will be worth it! In the meantime please check out our fall launch, we still have some beautiful pinafores, suspender skirts, tees, and more <3
We are happy to announce that Hygge Baby Co. is now Maren & Lou. We are so excited to finally share this news as it’s been in the works for awhile now! Below are answers to a few questions we thought you may have.
Why did you change your name?
When launching our company in June our vision was to produce more baby products and design in addition to clothing and to have them represent Scandinavian design. I am a one woman show at this time and trying to put my time into so many different categories was exhausting and unproductive. I found myself primarily focusing on our clothing because it is what I loved. I have a true passion for children’s clothing design and am excited to pursue this avenue. The word Hygge was also very hard to pronounce, remember, and explain 😂
Why Maren & Lou?
As many of you know from my social media posts and Instagram stories, I have a 9 month old daughter. Her name is Maren. Eloisa (Lou) is her best friend
Eloisa’s mom and I met in brownies about 25 years ago. We have been very close ever since, she is like a sister to me, and we are determined that our daughters will be just as close 😂We have seen each other grow up, go through hardships, experience each other’s birthdays, relationships, weddings, births... she is special to me, just like her daughter Lou. I want to build something for these girls, to show the importance of hard work, dedication and what it means to own a business. All while enjoying it and having fun. What better way to signify that than to name our little company after them?
In short- Maren is my daughters name and Lou is my best friends daughters name 😊
Will the business or products be changing?
We will still be offering vintage inspired girls clothing with a bit of a modern twist. We will be limiting it to a few designs that really makes our brand our own. We are so excited to share them with you! All of our clothing will continue to be produced with quality in the USA.
You may continue to see Hygge Baby tags and labels on our fall collection as we are in the process of changing over all our tags, labels, and marketing materials.
Each Fall we will release one to two limited edition Halloween costumes. This year we are excited to launch our Fawn Bonnet & Romper. Wait until you feel how soft these are. Made with high quality faux fawn fur and fully lined with our linen blend. Bonnets are available separately. Click HERE to order!
The small shops guide is a curated digital catalog of baby and children's products. We've created this catalog so that you may find other shops with the same intention as Hygge Baby Co. We strive to make a positive impact in this community, where we value quality over quantity and community over competition.

This Fall, Hygge Baby Co. will launch something called T-shirts with a cause. Each season we release a new design and new organization to give back. This fall we are offering our vintage sunflower bicycle design.
A portion of proceeds from our bicycle tees will go to 'Bikes for Kids' - an organization who's mission is for every child to be able to experience the enjoyment of owning and riding their own bicycle
We decided to focus on simplicity and versatility for our fall line. Our skirts and pinafores can be worn multiple ways, giving you a variety of different looks per outfit. We chose rich plums, vintage blues, and ecru for our fabrics this fall, made of linen and cotton. We are so excited to share our fall line with you and hope you love it as much as we do <3

Mom Boss Interview with Bethany Reis:
1. Why did you decide to start your business? I have always had an entrepreneurial heart and wanted something of my own. With my own business I am able to use my creativity and passion for design while impacting our community.
2.What advice would you give to other potential Mompreneurs? Treat your business as your job, not just a hobby. It is not easy
3. What do you love most about your business? I love that I am able to create and share my love of design for children. I love that our clothing is high quality and can be worn over and over, then passed along for another child to enjoy
4. What would you like the community to know about your business? Hygge (pronounced hue-guh) is a Danish word describing a special feeling or moment, life's simple pleasures. Offering children's handmade clothing, art & design, and other handmade goods.
After having 2 boys and finding out we were going to have our little girl, to say I was excited about designing her nursery is an understatement. I decided to use a lot of neutrals, blush, and florals in Maren's nursery.

It seems that I am failing miserably at a photo a day. I think I overestimated the amount of free time I would have. Having 3 children (one being a newborn that does not sleep), rebranding a business, and the everyday tasks of maintaining a home I am finding it hard to feel motivated to pull my camera out. That being said, this is Day 3 - My little tots, 2 big boy superhero's protecting their baby sis <3
