About Us

Welcome to Milk and Love! We're a Maternity, Breastfeeding & Baby Boutique tucked away in the leafy streets of Paddington, Brisbane. Our team all have lot of personal experience with pregnancy and motherhood, and we love finding thoughtfully designed new products and brands to share with our Insiders community. We're also available for any questions you have (no question is too embarrassing!) - motherhood is full of new experiences!

Milk and Love launched in 2010 when our founder, Corryn, couldn't find stylish nursing clothes made with natural fabrics. After enduring a hot Queensland summer red faced and uncomfortable in synthetic nursing wear with a hot (very) attached baby she searched the world for brands specialising in stylish breastfeeding clothes made with cool natural fabrics such as bamboo, cotton and modal. Since then, Milk and Love has grown every year, moving out of the 3rd bedroom of Corryn's home and into a beautiful premises in Paddington, Brisbane.

Milk & Love is dedicated to stocking beautiful brands with a commitment to environmental and ethically responsible manufacturing, and loves supporting other small family brands who pour so much love and attention to detail into their products. We also love supporting mums with information from experts, and a supportive gentle parenting commmunity in our Facebook Group. You can also join us on Facebook or Instagram for our latest arrivals and inspiration.

Have a beautiful day and thanks for visiting!
