- Our Mission -
To make it easy for families and loved-ones to find lovely, practical, right-sized, and affordable clothes and gifts for tiny and not-so-tiny babies.
To grow the business so it can afford to offer customers the widest range of products available from all over the world, donate more to neonatal wards and premature baby charities; whilst creating a sustainable business for our family.
- Our Story -
You can read all about me and our little - but highly professional - family run business in the newspaper article below, or scroll down to discover more about my inspiration for launching the business, and our values.
You can also check us out on Trustpilot and social media. The baby pics our customers send us and the 5 star reviews make us so happy! We love knowing we're really helping people.
If you'd like any more information or advice please don't hesitate to contact us, it'll be a member of the family that answers your call or email and we're all very happy to help.
P.S. your purchases help us to donate premature baby clothes to hospitals, for parents in need. This means so much to these families, their nurses, and us.
It's little babies like these and their families that inspired me to launch Little Mouse, after years of working as a Senior Neonatal Nurse at several hospitals including Great Ormond Street and Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.
I wanted to help families struggling to find clothes that are the right size and stylish.
I'd seen so many parents despondent at the lack of clothes available for their premature baby, and too many people struggling to dress their baby with outfits that are ill-fitting or aren't practical for a tiny baby; especially if it's connected to lines and tubes.
I wanted loved ones to buy gifts and cards with confidence, so parents didn't miss out.
I've witnessed parents of premature babies receiving less gifts and cards than healthy full-term babies which is heartbreaking. So I wanted to make it easier for loved ones to find suitable gifts and to know what to buy; which is why we offer lots of advice on our website as well as cards and a handwritten message.
I hoped the business would grow so we could expand our product range, giving more choice to customers & affording us to give back.
Our journey began in 2016, and now we offer the biggest range of quality clothes for little babies in the UK, and have expanded into toys, blankets and more! We're also making donations to NICUs and many of our brands give back to charities and communities too.
We go the extra mile to make customers happy
As a little business we can't afford to let customers down, and we like to take the time to offer a personal service. We are a friendly family-run business, working hard to source great quality, hard-to-find, practical, and ethical products for gorgeous little premature, tiny, and newborn babies. Plus we offer lots of advice online and if you contact us.
