ABOUT US

ABOUT US

Hello! I'm Gillian, I founded Little Mouse Baby Clothing and Gifts Ltd (Little Mouse) in 2017 along with my husband, and today we are small team of 5.

I'm also a senior Neonatal Nurse - and mum - and I started the business because I saw too many families of premature babies despondent at the lack of clothing that is right-sized, practical, and lovely for their little-one, especially if poorly in hospital.

Thank you so much for supporting our little independent business

We've been around a few years now and shipped thousands of orders, but still to this day when we get notification of a new order we get a really warm feeling, knowing that someone has put their trust in us and that we're helping another family.

Can you trust us?
If you've not heard of us before we hope our 'Excellent' Trustpilot rating along with the lovely customer posts on our Facebook and Instagram gives you faith in us.

Our inspiration

Our Founder has worked with 100s of premature babies


It's babies like this beautiful little customer and their families, that were the inspiration for Gillian 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.

She had 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. This is not only bad for baby, but really gets parents down too. She just had to help!

We want to ensure families of premature babies also get gifts and cards!


Having witnessed parents of premature babies on the NICU/SCBU receiving less gifts and cards than healthy full-term babies, Gillian wanted to make it easier for loved ones to find suitable gifts, to know what to buy, and what to write in a card. This is why we offer lots of advice on our website as well as beautifully packaged products and cards with a handwritten message.

Our Ethics

Kind to our customers, staff, suppliers and the planet

When we founded Little Mouse we always said we’d do business the right way, in a kind way.

We’d treat our customers how we’d wish to be treated ourselves, work in partnership with our suppliers and prioritise suppliers with strong ethics, and do right by our staff (currently our little team is all family and close friends!). 

We want the experience of shopping with us to be enjoyable; buying clothes and gifts for babies should be lovely! That’s why we offer products we’re proud of, helpful advice, lovely packaging, and personal customer service.

Our suppliers
We are also mindful that the fashion industry is tarnished by brands using child labour and environmentally unfriendly practises. We want nothing to do with this and make efforts to choose suppliers that reflect our values. The majority of our clothing is made with certified organic cotton, and most of our brands have strong sustainability policies and give back to communities or charities.

Proud to be little

We really really care


We're really proud of our little family-run business and it's in our nature to want to do a really good job for our customers. Especially for families of babies in hospital as we know this can be a really challenging time. It's why we support hospitals and charities too.

Additionally we can't afford to let people down. We're a little business that relies on word of mouth and great reviews on Trustpilot, Facebook and Instagram.


Why else buy from a little company?


When you buy small, you not only get personal service and fair prices. You know who you are buying from; you’re helping a family to earn a living. You're helping to boost employment and income in the community as well as helping to increase tax for local governments as small businesses don't have foreign ownership and offshore bank accounts.

These are the reasons we try to support independent businesses anyway! :)
