J.L. Childress Co. was created over 25 years ago from one mother’s needs. While trying to integrate her career as an Art Director for Disneyland with her desire to breastfeed her infant daughter for as long as possible, Jan Childress designed a tote bag to carry her breast pump and a separate, insulated bag with reusable ice pack to care for the expressed milk until she arrived home. These items were successfully launched to market, and as sales increased rapidly Jan worked tirelessly around her babies’ schedules to design and market additional products to meet the needs of active parents.
Through hard work and determination, J.L. Childress Co. has continuously grown over the years to become a leader in juvenile travel accessories both in the US and worldwide. Product development has always been and continues to be centered on developing highly functional designs at value-driven prices for today’s practical parenting. Past, present and future product inspiration is born out of everyday parents’ needs and refined by our valuable panel of J.L. Childress Co. MVP’s (Most Valuable Parents!) as well as industry experts.
